Ultimate Sparkle

Chapel Hill Tire helps customers Drive Happy™ with our world-class mechanic services. To provide the most advanced level of care possible, we now offer mobile and in-shop 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 Awesome Detail package.

Step 1: Detailed Hand Car Wash of Exterior

While running through a car wash with bright lights and colors may seem fun, these machine washes are often ineffective—and they can even damage your vehicle. Instead, 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 by Hand

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 Awesome 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 extends into the surfaces 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

Next, our detailing specialists ensure your vehicle shines by polishing it by hand. Polishing can help reduce the appearance of minor scrapes and dents while further protecting paint from pollen, sap, and other exterior damage. Keep your car shining for longer with our detailed polishing service.

Step 7: Shampoo Upholstery and Car Carpet

It can feel impossible to keep your car’s upholstery and carpeting clean. Over time, they collect unsightly stains that decrease your resale value. During the advanced upholstery and carpet shampoo, detailing professionals can diminish or entirely remove the appearance of stains.

Step 8: Condition and Protect Leather Seats

When your car leaves the dealership lot, it is equipped with leather conditioner and a protectant. However, this protection quickly wears away—so you must maintain it with regular conditioning. During this step, our experts will help keep your seats protected from wear and tear.

Step 9: Smooth out Light Scratches and Enhance Paint Gloss

Finally, our professionals will leave your car shining. While intense scratches require more intense care,  our detailing experts can smooth out light scratches and enhance your paint gloss with professional-grade tools and polish.

How Much Does the Drive Happy Awesome Detail Car Wash Cost?

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

  • $329.00

Please remember that proper car wash and detailing services can take time. Therefore, we recommend booking a Drive Happy Awesome Detail for mobile detailing, 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.
