BUSINESS SPONSOR spotlight – All In The Details

Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I relocated to Louisville at the beginning of high school. After graduating from Ballard High School, I relocated back to Columbus to attend Ohio State University, where I studied mechanical engineering. While home from college one summer, and looking for a job, I found work as an auto detailer for a local dealership. It was the perfect job for a poor college kid: long hours, working both indoors and outdoors, and always busy. Summer flew by and even though my original plan was to head back to Columbus, a turn of fate kept me here in Louisville. For the next few years I continued detailing for the dealership and managed a crew of employees, all while continuing my education. I changed venues and began working for CarMax, where I became a trainer and subject matter expert. For 6 years, I traveled the country for CarMax, refining processes, as well as finding and developing new products. I also spent time training detailers and managers on how to meet the objectives of quality and cost. The road warrior life wasn’t conducive for a personal life, so in 2012, I decided to come off the road and settle back into life in Louisville. While looking for my next career move, I noticed a misconception about what auto detailing should be. It seemed to me that people were paying too much for mediocre work. Auto detailing goes way beyond getting a quick vacuum and wash; it’s about quality and paying attention to the little details that make a car look new again, or show worthy. I felt there was a need for an auto detailing service that provided quality service for a reasonable price, so in 2013, I opened All In The Details. All In The Details is a mobile detailing service that focuses on using environmentally friendly products that bring vehicles back to a pristine condition. We set ourselves apart in many ways: we have upfront pricing, convenient on-line scheduling, we come to your location (residential or office), and every employee is here not to just clean a vehicle, but protect and maintain the client’s investment. We are frequently asked how often a car should be detailed; this is a tough question to answer because there are so many variables. I believe it is based off personal preference, use of the vehicle, and how long you want the vehicle to last. For those who like to clean their vehicles themselves between details, I can’t stress enough how important it is to check labels, especially regarding interior products that “protect” leather and vinyl surfaces. Do NOT use products that contain silicone. Leather, vinyl, and plastic parts of a vehicle are porous. When a product is applied to these surfaces, the product will fill the porous material. Silicone expands in the heat, and contracts in cold temperatures. This expansion and contraction within the porous surface advances wear, and will lead to cracking. Quality work and customer satisfaction is our primary focus. In 2014, we received the Angie’s List Super Service Award for 2014. We strive to provide our customers with nothing less than excellence. We love talking about vehicles and are here to answer questions.
