Best Bang for your Buck Detailer

I'll be buying a used car soon and I would like to get the exterior/interior detailed right away. I'm wondering where can you get the best bang for your buck in terms of detailing services in the lower mainland? I looked at the work from Autowerkes and I'm very impressed with what they do, however the prices make me sad. Is there a happy medium where I can get good work for reasonable price?

Check out this thread:

And in regards to pricing, detailing is something that takes a lot of time and work. Ken is probably the best detailer in BC IMO, if not Canada. He does fantastic work, I would definitely not hesitate to give him a call. I would try stay away from shops like Mr.Shine Auto Detailing on Marine in Vancouver, and Unique in North Vancouver. I've heard some bad stories about Unique through other people. But I've seen first hand the damage Mr.Shine has done to a perfectly polished Cayenne.

If price is a consideration, then give Brendan a call.

If price really is that much of a consideration try Showroom Auto Spa on 5th and Cambie. They do pretty good work, and they're somewhat cheaper than Brendan. They also have 15% discount for first time customer with over $200 package.
