Asking the Right Questions

Most people reading that quote above for the first time will not fully appreciate it. But once it is explained and context is added, it becomes one of those moments that causes you to wonder how it has been so easily overlooked before!

Without going into an exhausting list of possible questions, let me simplify it with a few statements that will not only save you time, but I feel separates me from the endless choices you have when it comes to choosing a top rated auto detailing service provider.

  • Most of you don't fully understand the true art of detailing.

I get it! Really I do. Before I got in to detailing I did not have a "developed" eye for the endless "details" that go into the process of detailing itself. I can't tell you how many times I have finished with a detail and hear the common words out of a person's mouth: "Wow! I had no idea this is what my car could look like!"

  • Most of you reading this will will reduce your decision largely based on a number: "How much is it going to cost?"

Let me be blunt: "If you are a price shopper and you reduce every buying decision in your life down to a simple comparison of numbers; I am not the detailer for you." I know the standard "We Deliver Value" statement has not only become cliche'd, but a principle that is rarely delivered past the simple use of the statement itself. But there are actually companies and people that truly work to develop this just like they do their chosen craft.

  • Most of you think that experience with products and technique is all that makes a good detailer.

Not only do I do professional detailing, but I also do mentoring, training, and consulting to many people and companies. This is one of the big lies within the detailing industry. Guys looking to get into the business are lured into expensive training courses that teach everything there is about products and technique, but nothing about the other highly essential sills needed to rise above the competition and deliver an exceptional service. The harsh reality is that the right products and right techniques are only about 60% of the equation. Discipline and patience is a huge part of the bigger picture. Most guys honestly have not developed both the discipline and patience to deliver a truly exceptional service or end result.

"Communication is KING"

Once again you may be asking yourself what this possibly has to do with getting your car detailed.

I am glad you asked....EVERYTHING!

  • Does a potential detailer have the communication skills to help you make an informed decision.
  • Are you asking the right questions yourself, and if not, is the detailer helping you ask the right questions?
  • Does the detailer help you decide what is the most "appropriate" strategy for your car based on you and your world, or do they try and lead you down a path based on their agenda?

"Experience has shown me that every person and every car is truly unique. For this reason I help people make informed decisions that are what I call an appropriate response. For what is possible, may not necessarily be appropriate for you. I will help you make that decision based on you, not me."

Uncommon Name...Uncommon Results!

As owner/operator of Auto Fetish Detail I too have experienced the over-promise, under-deliver theme that seems to dominate virtually every area of life! When it comes to detailing in Orange County there are many choices to be had.

The industry is saturated with so-called "professional" mobile detail services who are more than willing to disappoint you for a nominal fee...that is not us! We have been in it, and continue to be in it for the long haul which means building long term relationships.


Get Used To All The Extra Attention

  • A car that stands out in any setting!
  • Head turning, attention grabbing luster!

Detailing Done Right

I have turned my passion for cars and extreme clean into a car detailing service that is built on producing the kind of results that seem so hard to come by in today's world; a detailing experience that doesn't stop with just a great detail, but delivers an experience that includes what I call the "entire package". All the extra intangibles that make for an overall experience that makes people want to come back again and again!

  • Auto: daily drivers, exotics, luxury, hot rods, etc.
  • Boat: Electric, motor yachts, power boats, etc.
  • RV: Toy haulers, Diesel pushers, 5th wheels, etc.
  • Motorcycle: Daily drivers to show rides.
  • Airplane: Single prop to jet.
  • Commercial equipment

As a by-product of detailing since 1988 there is not much of anything we have not gotten our hands on. From what you might consider a basic, entry level detail, to delivering show-car results for the most discerning of eyes!

"Discerning Eye for Details"

  • Do you place a high value on your time...
  • Have a discerning eye for details...
  • Want to maintain the value and beauty of your car...
  • Understand value is far more than a dollar amount...

"Then perhaps I am the detailer for you!"

  • Delivering service in a manner that develops trust at every level.
  • Valuing your time by being on time.
  • Courtesy calls the night before to confirm our appointment time.
  • The integrity to turn down a job if it is not a win/win for both sides.
  • Conducting myself in a professional manner in every way.

So call me directly and we can discuss your specific needs of auto detailing services in a candid and honest manner. I can show you first hand the difference I bring to the business that can only be produced by a professional who knows that there is far more to "detailing" than claiming to use the best products and the best techniques.

Darren took my 9 year old Acura MDX and made it spectacular! I believe his knowledge and attention to "detail" goes above and beyond!
Thank you!

I'm somewhat of a car nut. Always have been and I don't mind it a bit. I also thought I had the very best detailer out there but boy did I blow that one. My son insisted I try Darren at Auto Fetish and I succumbed to the pressure and did. I did not realize what perfection looked like until Darren announced my car was completed. The depth of the shine, the attention to detail and the thoroughness of the work were well beyond any past experience. No question Darren really takes his work seriously and the customer reaps an enormous benefit. If you take pride in your wheels, Darren's the man!!

Darren - Thank you for an honest quote over the phone, early arrival, and most importantly an outstanding detail job which restored my car back to excellent condition. The paint touch up looks great and my leather seats are super clean and sport a "new" conditioned look. Keep up the good work!
Bill C.
Fullerton, CA

Darren - I appreciate your work even more as I see it day after day! even though I live in Northern California, there was nobody I felt right about in my area so I knew I was in for a drive to come down to you. I am so glad I did. You were also so very accommodating!
Ray P.

Wow! Our RV looks amazing! That front end literally glows. Darren, I am more than happy; really! Our RV did not look that good the day we got it brand new. No seriously Darren, it really didn't look this good! Thank you!

Darren - I just got a call from my mom and she is really, really happy with her car! This is the reason I referred you as you are professional in all you do, so thank you. That car means more to her than her children; you have a customer for life!
Thank you again!

Darren - the scratch you fixed on my Mustang Cobra looks really, really good! Unless you are a professional car buyer you would not even notice it. It looks so much better than before; thank you!

I spent considerable time looking for the right person to detail my 2007 Porsche Cayman-S (Black). I was impressed with the recommendations and accolades Darren received on his website including the samples of cars he had detailed. I was even more delighted after he finished detailing my car. It looked amazing; inside, outside, the wheels, everything. I will be using Darren for my detailing needs and will recommend him to the folks in my Porsche club.

I have been using Darren’s professional detail services, Auto Fetish Detail, for close to 15 years now and continue to do so. Darren has taught me and my staff just what real detailing is. Darren is incredibly meticulous and attentive to details. Whenever I have a customer who demands the best, I tell them to call Darren at Auto Fetish. I can always tell when Darren has detailed a car because the level of quality is like no other! He is not the cheapest guy in town, but you can’t beat the quality!

I have known and used Darren's services for 20+ years. I own Xlnt Tint of Anaheim inc. and see many cars every day. When we have a particular customer that needs top notch service, there is nobody else I would trust but Darren! He is very meticulous, and knowledgeable. If you are in need of someone who will take their time but most importantly bring over 20 years of hands on knowledge, this is the company for you.

"Wow! Now that is what my car paint is supposed to look like; I can't believe what a difference you made! This is exactly what needed to be done, thank you!"

"I took a leap of faith by picking someone on the Internet to detail my bosses boat! I wasn't disappointed! Darren was professional, punctual, and very easy to deal with, and best of all, he did a FANTASTIC JOB! I couldn't have been happier. We will definitely be a repeat customer!!"

"We have seen the work of other detailers in removing various forms of vinyl car decals and vehicle wraps. Often we have to spend additional hours due to the incomplete removal of old graphics, before we can apply new graphics. Save yourself time and aggravation by calling Darren first and have it done right the first time around; this is the way it should be done!"
