Is it worth getting your car professionally detailed? Yes, it is! Here's Why.

Whether you are looking to cut down on your expenses, or you are a first-time car owner wondering if getting your car professionally detailed is worth it, this article will thoroughly explain what you can expect from paying for professional car detailing and how it will benefit you.

Car detailing or valeting is highly recommended for car owners looking to put their car on the market, car owners who use their vehicles for work such as taxi drivers and chauffeurs and car owners looking to get Australia’s golden sands out of the boot!

For your convenience, mobile car valet services are now available across Australia, which means that you won’t have the hassle of dropping off your car and keeping yourself occupied until the valet is complete. Mobile valet services can service your car on your doorstep!

Many professional car cleaning companies will have a broad range of packages to suit your budget and your needs, including mobile servicing.

The Top 5 Reasons to Invest in a Professional Car Detailing Service

Now you know what is included in professional car detailing, here are 5 of the main reasons why the services listed above will be beneficial to your vehicle and your budget in the future.

1. Get That Straight Off the Forecourt Feel

If you have attempted to get a professional detailed finish using DIY methods, you will quickly find that the job requires incredible attention to detail to pick up all of the crumbs between the seats and the dust behind the control panel. A professional valet can take between 1 and 10 hours, depending on the size of the vehicle and the level of cleaning required for a flawless finish. It can be a lengthy process for professionals with all of the right tools and products, let alone a novice aiming for a professional finish

2. Value for Money in the Long Run

The demand for second-hand cars in Australia went up exponentially in 2021, which led to an increase in value. Even if you can’t envisage selling your car today, that doesn’t mean it won’t be a possibility in the future if you get offered a company car or find yourself wanting an upgrade.


Professional detailing services can prove to be excellent value for money when it comes to the maintenance of your car. For example, conditioning the leather seats and detailing in your car can prevent the leather from cracking further down the line and protective sealant wax will prevent the weather from devaluing your vehicle. On this basis, you can think of valet servicing as a future investment.

3. Allow Your Modern Car to Become a Classic

Without a professional cleaning and detailing services, not many classic cars would still be around today in mint condition. Driving off the forecourt may instantly decrease a car’s value, but in time, and with the proper investment, you may start to see the value of your car creeping up again.


Any classic car fan will tell you just how much satisfaction comes from being the lucky caretaker of a rare and desired model, but that doesn’t need to mean taking on all of the responsibility solely. If you want the best for your car, leave it to the best.

4. Trust the Professionals Over YouTube Videos

If you look online, you will find plenty of ‘how to’ videos explaining how to professionally clean your car. They will often promise to give you inside tips on how to save money with thrifty hacks and let you get plenty more bang for your buck.


While some instructors will undoubtedly have some credibility behind their claims, what they can’t do is the tricky manual work for you. Nor will they be accountable for any damage if anything goes wrong.  All professional valet car cleaners have been through extensive experience and training and know-how to get a thorough clean without damaging your vehicle.

5. Professional and Safe Stain Removal

Without spending hours extensively researching what the right tools for the job are, it is easy to use the wrong products and techniques when it comes to stain removal. This can either lead to lengthy unnecessary labour on your behalf or damage to your vehicle.


Save yourself the time and the stress by trusting a professional that knows where to apply a gentle touch and comes equipped with all of the right products to give you the cleanest car that you have ever driven.
