Where can I get detail supplies for at home?

I am looking for distributors/whole sale suppliers for professional detailing products so I can use for my cars at home.

I prefer not to use canadian tire products.

Anyone know where I can get supplies dealerships and auto shops use?

Looking for 3M polish stage 1-3
auto magic
carbrite products
3M auto sand paper
buffer pads
clay pads
clay bars

THANKS!

P.S. Any place around surrey/langley/white rock would be great as well since I can head to those cities easiest.

Car brite and Auto magic should carry all those . They supply many dealerships with their detailing products.

Is this for a home business? Canadian Tire might not have your high end professional stuff.... But they do have 3M auto sand paper. Meguiar or Mothers claybar (not sure how high end you need), buffer pads, etc.

Maybe not everything on your list, but I would check CT first before going to Lordco and other places. I've seen Lordco sell the exact same product at CT, but with a $20 markup...

Auto Obsessed - auto detailing services and car care products - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - I order from Auto Obsessed. I find they have better prices than Eshine and they are faster since they are in Edmonton.

That said, don't overthink it - some of the stuff CT sells is good stuff and perfectly fine anyone who isn't a pro. Just depends on what you need.

I was looking for a foam cannon too, found one at Cambodian Tire in North Van.

Check their website, it'll show inventory by location.
