Comprehensive Detail with Wax

Chapel Hill Tire helps you Drive Happy with our world-class mechanic services. To provide the most comprehensive level of care possible, we now offer car wash and detailing services. Our local mechanics offer four impressive car wash and detailing packages. Let’s take a closer look at the Drive Happy Detail package.

Step 1: Hand Car Wash

While running through a car wash with bright lights and colors may seem fun, machine washes are often ineffective. Our professionals start by washing the exterior of your car by hand. We use professional-grade techniques to leave your car looking spotless. 

Step 2: Towel Dry

Traditional air drying and automatic car dryers are ineffective—leaving behind hard water marks. To avoid hard water stains and ensure your car shines, our car wash and detailing experts towel dry the exterior of your vehicle by hand. 

Step 3: Complete Interior Cleaning, Including Windows

Naturally, the inside of your car collects smudges, streaks, and other marks over time. Not only are these marks distracting, but they can also spell trouble long-term for leather or fabric interiors. So our car detailing professionals thoroughly clean the inside of your vehicle—including your windows. 

Step 4: Complete Vehicle Vacuuming

Car crumbs can attract ants and other bugs. Not to mention, they affect the smell and appearance of your interior. During your Drive Happy Detail service, our professionals thoroughly vacuum your seats, floormats, and interior to eliminate the dust, dirt, sand, crumbs, pollen, and other debris your car has collected during your commutes. Our detailing equipment gets deep into the crevices that standard vacuums cannot reach. 

Step 5: Protective Wax

Your car’s paint contains a clear coat to help protect your car from scratches, UV rays, pollen, sap, rust, and corrosion. Over time, this clear coat weakens, leaving your vehicle vulnerable. Regular protective wax can help maintain this protection. Our detailing specialists use a professional-grade orbital buffer to apply a protective wax to the surface of your vehicle.

Step 6: Polish By Hand

Our local specialists ensure your vehicle shines by polishing it by hand. Polishing can help reduce the appearance of minor scrapes and dents. You can keep your car shining for longer with our detailed polishing service.

Step 7: Shampoo Upholstery and Car Carpet

Some interior issues require a little more elbow grease. To ensure quality results, our experts shampoo your upholstery and car carpeting. This process eliminates set-in stains and odors—so your car can look and smell like new.

Step 8: Condition and Protect Leather Seating

Finally, we apply professional-grade leather protectants to preserve the value of your leather seating and prevent future damage. This step is vital in maintaining the interior of your car. It will also leave your vehicle feeling brand new when you get behind the wheel.

How Much Does the Drive Happy Detail Car Wash Cost?

Our car wash and detailing service pricing is both transparent and accessible for drivers:

  • Sedan & Non-Sedan: $249.00

Please remember that proper car wash and detailing services can take time. Therefore, we recommend booking a Drive Happy Detail for your drop-off car care service, shuttle service, or pick-up/delivery appointment so that you are not left waiting in our lobby during this extended service.
