What Services are Part of Auto Detailing?

You know that there’s a difference between merely washing your car and getting it detailed. However, do you know what exactly is included in detailing? What does the price tag get you? Check out our guide to services covered in auto detailing.  

  • Paint restoration. The most important part of detailing a car is making sure the paint is as good as new. This includes washing the car and then using clay to get excess soap scum or water marks off of the paint. Any small scratches are buffed out, and then the paint is polished. These steps leave your car as shiny as new.
  • Top to bottom cleaning. Every square inch of the vehicle is cleaned thoroughly. This is far more than a simple car wash will be able to provide—a car wash rinses only the exterior of the car. Auto detailing can include the wheel wells of your vehicle, which will get rid of buildup from salt and grit on the roads. Some detailing packages even include cleaning the engine bay and sealing any rubber or plastic components. Adjusting your engine will no longer automatically result in oil stains everywhere.
  • Polished finish. Besides the car’s paint, all metal and glass surfaces will be polished. Windows will be polished on the exterior and interior, so there’s no chance of dirty glass leading to an accident.
  • Sealed headlights. Over time, lights can become oxidized. This causes them to lose their efficacy. Sealing the headlights prevents this from occurring, so you’ll be able to drive in any weather with ease.


  1. Clean interiors. The interior of the vehicle is just as important as the exterior in detailing. This means the car’s upholstery is washed, shampooed, and vacuumed, and all plastic or metal parts in the interior are given detail-oriented care.

It’s National Car Care Month

It might be our favorite month of the year over at Q, and there is one big reason why. April is National Car Care Month, and we couldn't come up with a better reason to invest in your vehicle and yourself. National Car Care Month promotes the importance of preventative maintenance, and our team can think of a few services we offer that do just that.

What Does Clay Bar Do?

When clients go through our lists of professional detailing treatments before deciding which packages they want, we sometimes get questions about our procedures like, “What does a clay bar treatment do?”. Not every car owner knows the ins and outs of luxury detailing, and that’s why you hired the experts at Q. A clay bar is an auto detailing tool used to help remove contaminants after washing your vehicle. Clay bars help remove industrial fallout, dirt, dust, and more. Adding clay to your car not only helps with its overall appearance but it can also contribute to preventing further scratching and swirls that these outside elements might cause to your clear coat and paint.

With all that our cars face during our daily commute, damage from something as simple and as small as pollen is not worth the risk. Luckily, Q Car Care offers a variety of services, including clay bar treatments and some paint protection precautions. We can even take your car security a step further when you invest in our Q Complex Nano-Ceramic Coating.

With the number of benefits this Q performance product adds to your vehicle, the sky's the limit. The increased hardness means less dirt retention and keeping your car cleaner, longer. Not to mention, it also creates a far more chemical-resistant sacrificial layer than any wax or sealant could ever offer.

There’s a reason that Q is known as one of the best detailer north of Boston, and that’s because we love your car almost as much as you do. Providing you with quality detailing services and products on the market means protecting your vehicle's value and longevity, and we are happy to be your go-to shop in the Burlington area.

Is Your Car Ready for Fall?

Because we drive our cars nearly every day, it can be hard to notice the subtle changes to the paint and the interior until it feels like it’s too late. Though we love the all that comes with summer, it can be pretty harmful to the look of our cars. Q’s detailing service near Boston completes restorative work all the time, and we have a few tips for helping maintain your car for the rest of the season.

Regularly scheduled detailing

UV rays, mud, bugs, and other outside elements can slowly affect the look and feel of our cars, and regular detailing can help prevent the impact it has. Just a little investment now can save you quite a bit of money down the road.

Leather cleaning and conditioning

Leather can be temperamental, especially when it comes into contact with the sun for extended periods of time. Keeping up with leather maintenance can help prevent problems such as staining, drying, and cracking. If you find your leather seats need more than a cleaning, Q also offers leatherique rejuvenation services.

Q Complex

It’s often suggested for car owners to invest in a sealant when they want to protect their car’s paint from fading, but what if there’s another coating out there that does even more? Our exclusive ceramic coating gives your car extreme gloss, is easier to maintain, is scratch and marring resistant, and offers protection from environmental elements.

Restorative exterior detailing

Your car might be past the point of preventative work and might be in need of a little more elbow grease. Q offers an extensive paint correction to make your car look and feel brand new.

Whether you’re searching for only an exterior detail or are looking for corrective services, Q has everything you need for all your car detailing needs near Boston, MA. With more questions about what we can offer you, call us today at (781) 691-9005.
