Need a good detailer ASAP, anyone help?

Firstly, I contacted Brendan and he's booked solid, that would have been my first choice but he's unavailable, I need someone by the 24th (next saturday)

I have 2 vehicles, some pretty extensive work to be done.

One vehicle needs a complete interior wash + shampoo + stain removal

and the other is a fairly new SUV, just needs a thorough cleaning on the interior + engine bay and a single stage polish.

Does anyone know anybody in the GVR that does a decent job?
I'm looking for someone locally

I was hoping to stay local, I have 2 cars but only 1 person to drive them. I know detailing takes forever I don't wanna be stranded there. I'm dropping off one of the cars @ yaletown auto spa on sunday, anyone know if they're decent?

I bring my car to "World Class Auto Care" since they are located in my building. They do a pretty good job and decent rates.

I took the crappier car in and it came out pretty good. Most of the dirt/stains are gone and the interior feels pretty fresh. I'm looking for a proper place to do a detail on my suv now but I got exams this week so it'll probably have to be sometime after. Sorry about photos had no camera on me besides blackberry

Is Pearls still around? They were around when I started detailing 18 years ago! If you don't mind me asking, what do they charge?

What's the best service to really make paint shine? Mine's looking a little dull, and I want it shimmering.
