Full car valet and detailing Basel area

Can someone recommend a decent place preferably just across the border in Germany? Would like a machine wax polish application if possible. Thanks

Sorry, can't help (and have been living here for 8 years now), but I'd be interested too.

Re: Full car valet and detailing Basel area

Wax isnt applied by machine unless its a crap cheap product, any shop that suggests machine wax application is a place to walk out of.

Polish - machine application
Wax - hand application.

There are about 4 or 5 places in weil that provide valet services, if they offer detailing im not sure.

2 next to toyota

next to drive through car wash- expensive, wanted 200 euro for interior cleaning and fogger use.

next to chrysler dealer

Also next to eleclerc in st louis. Interior clean is excellent and cheap.

Re: Full car valet and detailing Basel area

All,

I know it's not across the border but I highly recommend Kamber in Basel.

http://www.autopflegekamber.ch/leistungen/index.html

I just had the interior of my car detailed after my 8 month old decided it would be fun to ruin daddy's seats.

Anyways, he did a full interior clean, detailed the car and it was absolutely fantastic. I can't say enough about the shop.

All said and done it was about 250 CHF but worth every penny.

He also does exterior work but I did not have that done.

Re: Full car valet and detailing Basel area

What was involved with the interior? For 250 I guess no correction was performed, prob just a wet vac? Looking at the site the prices are reassuringly swiss. Can get the same in france for 60 euro though.

Re: Full car valet and detailing Basel area

I need to revive this thread

Can anyone recommend a car valet service around Basel/Loerrach/St.Louis ?

Re: Full car valet and detailing Basel area

I can recommend Silvano Maitre at KustomGonzo, based in Therwil. However, do NOT expect it to be cheap. We're talking proper detailing here, not a quick wash and tidy up.

Seeing the previous surprise from a poster at the cost of the interior clean (250 CHF, in line with what I would expect), you have to understand what you get for your money- carpets/mats shampooed/wet vacced; all surfaces dusted/cleaned, leather cleaned, fed, conditioned; interior glass cleaned. This is no small task, and once you factor in the use of the right cleaning products, the right care and attention, and of course Swiss labour, personal indemnity and place-of-business costs which are not the cheapest in the world, and you can see how it gets expensive very quickly.

Cleaning your car yourself is not a difficult task if you have the right materials and a suitable location to do it (although machine polishing etc. is an acquired skill), but it is very time consuming.
