RAD Mobile Auto Detailing is a completely mobile, environmentally focused, Auto interior and exterior cleaning and detailing service. Serving the Westchester and lower Connecticut areas, we bring our services to you offering a suite of vehicle services from the very basic to the extremely detailed.
Q: How does the pricing work?
Our general detailing process is priced at $100 an hour. Other specialized services like headlight restoration or wheel repair are priced specifically (ie: per pair of lights or per wheel). For general detailing, we will estimate a time to complete your work prior to booking so you will know the complete costs ahead of time. If we exceed our time estimate for some reason we will NOT adjust the costs from our original estimate.

Q: What exactly do you mean by 'Environmentally Focused'?
Although we do bring a full power washing capability with us to your site we will often choose not to use it and instead make use of our ‘rinseless wash’ process. Aside from not requiring us to setup our generator, this process uses *much* less water than power washing and also results in very little run-off with any water on the ground cleaned up through simple evaporation.
Environmentally Friendly Products
We spend a significant amount of time testing products from the industry searching for those that meet our performance requirements but which also have environmentally sensitive features and ingredients. For instance our tire dressing is water based and contains no silicone or oil based ingredients. Our choice of bug and tar remover is a powerful citrus based cleaner with very low VOC (volatile organic compound) content. The clay bar we use is made from naturally occurring mud (believe it or not).
It’s important to us to ensure we minimize our environmental footprint while delivering superior results to you as a customer.
Q: What are the benefits of detailing my vehicle?
Q: What do I need to do prior to my appointment?

Q: Do you carry insurance?
