Detailer recommendations

Asking for a friend that wants to bring their DD car to a detailed. Nothing fancy, looking for quality/cost effectiveness.

On related note. Does anyone know what happened to Joe and crew at BMS autohaus? Id normally send them there but looks like they closed up shop

I'm probably of no help, but the only place I can think of for detailing in Vancouver/Richmond area is

Bring it to Sensha-Ya - they do a good job and are not very expensive compared to the more bougie detailers.

If they're on a budget and the job is straightforward then consider having one of the folks on FB do it - the hobbyists/side hustle folks.

A wee bit up the scale is Fraser Car Wash around Fraser/45th:

A little further up the scale is something like Burnaby Auto Spa ( - I used them for an interior detail a while back on my Mazda 3 and it was good solid work. They crank through their cars - lots and lots of volume.

Tiago's Autospa near Science World is a fairly fancy but I've heard only good things about them. I use RDI detailing in Richmond for my ceramic coating and they do regular detailing as well - pricey and a bit out of the way though but top notch work.
