Our Happy Clients

After purchasing a “new to me” vehicle I took it to Island Detail to have it cleaned up. I was blown away by the whole experience. My service technician drove me back to work, he made it like new top to bottom, and fixed my broken side mirror, all in a day. My vehicle came home smelling like a new car and I couldn’t have been happier!
