I get my truck detailed at least once a week, 20 bucks with the wheel deal. I have noticed minus the tire shine, the attention the wheels is awful. I cleaned them right after I got home. Do you just accept it and walk away? Complain and make them fix it? I tip heavy as well.

I know they are those boys/girls who wash their vehicles themselves or do not go at all, I get it. Farm truck/ work truck..etc. but my truck pulls my Airstream but is also my office while traveling to OKC, San Antonio, Houston and Austin.

Just added a Aukey Sr02 camera and a A1 Roav, happy with both so far.

I just take care of my stuff. My truck is close,to 3 years old and is mint. That is me
but YMMV.

$20 is a car wash, not a detailing.

I agree. I took my car (not truck) to a car wash place and paid for a detail. It took two hours and cost $100. When I go there normally, it takes $20 and a half hour. The detail was pretty good, but 100 times better than the normal wash and clean they do.

Yep detailed around here is around $100-$130. I wash and detail my car because it’s too low to go through car washes. I have a monthly membership to a car wash for my truck and I run it through all the time. Sometimes 2-3 times in a row depending on how dirty it is. It’s an automated car wash so it doesn’t do a perfect job and needs touch ups but works good enough for my truck.

Agree. They forgot to do an entire wheel (tire shine and everything) the other day on my wife’s jeep and she took it back to get them to do it. I would have too.

Instead of putting the tip in the box, I carry it out to them and give it to them in person. If one guy outworks the other one, he gets more of it. Before I had them anything I’m watching what kind of effort they are putting in. There have been a few times I hand it to them and then say... “hey you got a towel, I want to get this wheel right here”. Every time I’ve ever done that they have taken the towel and did it right.

It's a thing. Just vacuum myself for free and do the $7 wash once or twice a month and wipe down the inside every few weeks. The extra tire clean is never good enough unless you do it yourself. A detail is a $100+ job.

For $20 I wouldn’t waste my time. Best thing to do is find a car wash that does an ok job, doesn’t tear anything up and doesn’t steal anything....

I pay a monthly membership for my wife to get her car washed. I do all mine by hand, myself.

My pickup is a workhorse. I Sometimes wash the mud off it at the car wash. Keep it in the garage at home.

What’s a car wash? Mine gets washed when I take it to the Dodge dealer for a recall or to buy filters, so 2 times a year. I do the interior as needed. Rest of the time I let Mother Nature do her thang
