A Review of the 16 Best Car Detailing Shops in Calgary

It isn’t easy to keep your car looking like it’s from an auto ad. Luckily, there are some excellent car detailing shops in our city that can help you keep your vehicle in top shape. 

To make things easier, we’ve even checked out the top ones and tried their services. Below are the ones that impressed us most.

How We Chose 

The following are the criteria we used to evaluate the entries:

Experience and expertise – A car detailing shop should have experienced and knowledgeable staff who can provide quality service and handle any issues that may arise. A good way to check their expertise is to see if they offer customized detailing packages based on your vehicle’s specific needs.
Attention to detail – A car detailing shop should pay attention to every detail, from cleaning the smallest crevices to ensuring the vehicle’s paint is properly protected. This includes using specialized tools and techniques to get into tight spaces and remove any dirt, dust, or debris.
Customer service – A detailing shop should have friendly and professional staff who are responsive to customers’ needs and concerns. They should also be able to provide detailed explanations of the services offered and answer any questions clients may have.
Competitive rates – A car detailing shop should offer competitive prices for its services while still providing excellent quality work. Additionally, they should be transparent about their pricing and offer a clear breakdown of what is included in each service package.

When it comes to car detailing, Wash Me Ride is an easy choice. We recently had the pleasure of experiencing their top-notch service and were impressed.

From their range of detailing packages to their car detailing experts, Wash Me Ride has most of the things we’re looking for.

But we have to highlight their customer service team in particular. They were knowledgeable, and friendly, and made us feel right at home. 

Everyone also took the time to explain the different detailing packages and answered all of our questions. Pretty neat in our opinion, as they can be helpful for first-time customers with little knowledge of detailing. 

Another thing we love about them is their commitment to quality. They’re fully licensed, insured, and bonded, so your vehicle is in good hands with fewer risks involved. 

As for their work, we totally dig their expertise and attention to detail. During our visit, we opted for their full interior and exterior detailing service and it was worth every penny just for the results alone. 

Their team went above and beyond to make our car look like new – it was as if we were driving off the lot with a brand-new ride.

But what really sets the shop apart is its flexibility. They offer both mobile and in-shop detailing services, which makes it easy to get the service you need, no matter where you are. 

Plus, their easy booking system makes scheduling an appointment a breeze.

All in all, Wash Me Ride truly delivers on its promises. Their top-notch service, car detailing experts, and flexibility are unmatched – at least at the moment.

Oh, boy, The Local Detailers left us both impressed and perplexed.

When it comes to their services, they sure know how to make your ride shine like a supernova.

From basic car washes to intricate detailing, these folks have the skills to make your vehicle look like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Our ride went from looking like a muddy mess to a gleaming stallion in no time.

Convenience is the name of the game, and The Local Detailers seem to have mastered it.

With their car detailing service, they come to you faster than a cheetah chasing its dinner. No need to waste time schlepping your car to a shop; they’ll take care of business right at your doorstep. 

It seems The Local Detailers have quite the following, and for good reason. Word on the street is that they’ve left countless car owners beaming with joy, and we can see why.

Their attention to detail is mind-boggling, and they treat your car like it’s their own. Trust us, you won’t find another crew that cares for your vehicle as much as these guys do.

But here’s where things get a bit murky—the cost. Sure, their services are top-notch, but be prepared to fork over a pretty penny.

The Local Detailers seem to have a penchant for squeezing your wallet like it’s a stress ball. We had to take a deep breath and remind ourselves that the shine and polish don’t come cheap.

However, they don;t offer discounts at the present. We recommend visiting their website from time to time to find new deals

Pros

  • Exceptional service quality
  • Convenient car detailing service
  • Strong reputation in the industry
  • Attention to detail in car care

Cons

  • Only works by appointment

Amazing shop

This is an amazing shop with a great young business owner. He has high attention to detail and will take good care of you! He will not compromise on giving you the best service and make your car look fresh and new off the lot. Always impressed with his attitude and mentality with how he takes care of cars and customers with passion. — Henry Fung

Took the time to do it right

100% recommend this business for your vehicle detailing needs. Extremely conscientious owner and staff. They took the time to do it right. I felt so guilty about how much time they spent on my large SUV after a cross-country road trip because it seemed they wouldn’t make any money (I gave a tip). You will NOT be disappointed. — Jim Finnigan

    If you’re searching for a car detailing shop that specializes in paint protection, check out Nano Defense. These experts offer a variety of paint protection solutions such as clear bra and ceramic coating, to keep your vehicle looking great for years.

    One thing we really appreciated about the shop was that they didn’t try to oversell us on anything we didn’t need. They were straightforward and honest about what our car needed and what it didn’t, which was a breath of fresh air in our experience. 

    They even took the time to explain their various paint protection options in detail. They didn’t just tell us what we needed – they educated us on the benefits and drawbacks of each solution, so we can make an informed decision. 

    Another thing that makes them unique from other car detailing shops is that they can work based on your budget. Plus, they offer financing options, including 0% financing through the OAC, to make paint protection more accessible to everyone.

    Not a lot of shops offer this kind of payment option (at least for most of those that we’ve visited in Calgary). That’s why we see them as a great choice for those who need detailing but are slightly strapped for cash.

    And the best part? We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about Nano Defense from other satisfied customers. Well, we saw their attention to detail and friendly customer service ourselves, so we understand the hype. 

    Pros

    • Specializes in paint protection
    • Offers various paint protection solutions
    • Provides budget-oriented solutions 
    • Offers 0% financing OAC
    • Straightforward and doesn’t oversell
    • Uses latest nanotechnology products

    Cons

    • Closed on weekends
    • On a pricey side

    Everything was explained

    Nano Defense managed to fit me in the day after I phoned and I’m happy with the work. Everything was explained before and after they were finished. If you don’t know where to go you won’t go wrong here. My XPEL looks great, thanks guys! – Andrew S.

    Completely impressed

    Just wanted to give huge props to Rainer and Jackie!  From the first contact via email I knew that I was going to get great service.  I was not disappointed whatsoever and am completely floored by the ppf and coating done on my new V60.  I also am impressed by their attention to detail and that they will stand by their work.  I would absolutely recommend Nano Defense to anyone – Michael Lee

    At Calgary Car Detailing, we felt like we’d struck gold when it comes to car detailing services. Their exterior wash is nothing short of amazing, leaving our car looking like it just rolled out of the showroom floor. 

    We can’t help but wonder if they use some kind of car detailing wizardry to get such impressive results. We were blown away by the attention to detail that their team puts into their work (and we don’t usually send out praises like these!)

    We must admit, we had some reservations about trying out Calgary Car Detailing due to some negative reviews online about dirty cars post-wash. But our experience was the complete opposite – our car was sparkling clean and free of any lingering dirt or grime.

    But their services don’t stop there – they also offer full paint correction and other inclusive detailing services. With such comprehensive offerings, we’re considering making them our regular go-to for the job.

    As if their services weren’t enough, we were thrilled to learn that they only use pH-balanced chemicals. This means that the products are both safe for your car and the environment, which is always a plus. 

    While it’s true that the location can be busy and parking can be limited, these minor hiccups are far outweighed by their exceptional services. Calgary Car Detailing has definitely earned a spot on our favorite’s list.

    Pros

    • Team of experts in car detailing
    • Uses the latest equipment and techniques
    • Uses pH-balanced chemicals.
    • Offers gift cards
    • Online booking available

    Cons

    • A few complaints about dirty cars post-wash

    Happy and pleased, excellent job

    It was my first time getting my car detailed. My car was a mess! Especially after a hail storm. Saan really took care of me, is super generous and makes sure an excellent job is done. I felt very happy and pleased with the whole experience. I would highly recommend you get your car detailed here!!! My car feels like it’s brand new 🙂 – Ahmed Khalid

    Delivered, will be back

    Near show room quality. Dropped off my 2000 Toyota 4Runner which hadn’t been cleaned in probably 20 years and they brought it back to new for me. Expectations were high and they delivered. I definitely plan on coming back here in the future and would highly recommend to anyone looking to get their vehicle detailed! – Gates Kempenaar

    Now, let’s talk about their interior services. Their thorough cleaning services, from the dashboard to the floor mats, guarantee a clean and refreshed look. 

    One of the things that set Super Shine apart is their fast turnaround time. They’re prompt in their service delivery, ensuring clients get their cars back in a timely manner. 

    We had our car serviced promptly and efficiently, which is impressive considering they were quite busy when we dropped by. 

    Unfortunately, this car detailing shop lacks transparency on its rates, which can be a concern. However, their charges still appear to be competitive compared to other shops in the area.

    Super helpful, detailed to perfection

    I was able to get a detailing done on short notice on the weekend. Luky- the owner – was super helpful and provided excellent service. The vehicle was detailed to perfection, so clean, so fresh inside and out. And it was done in a timely manner. Thanks, I will be back! – Mark Rossi

    One thing we particularly love about them is that they offer customizable packages with different price ranges (you can check their website for the complete details). This is great news for those who want to get the most bang for their buck.

    We recently had their paint correction service done on one of our rides, and we were blown away by the results. The Lux Detail team knows how to work their magic, and their attention to detail is highly commendable although not perfect.

    But what really sets them apart, for us, is the knowledge and advice they give their customers. 

    Their staff is not only skilled but also friendly and approachable. They’re always happy to answer any questions we have and give us advice on how to keep our car looking its best.

    The only downside we found is that it can be a bit challenging to book an appointment with them. However, we can definitely say that it’s worth the wait, considering we got fair prices and really good detailing.

    In fact, we’ve been recommending Lux Detail to all our friends and family who are in need of auto detailing services. And we’re not alone in our admiration for their work – we’ve seen countless positive reviews online, and it’s easy to see why.

    Seamless experience

    The staff at Lux ensure top to bottom service. Not only do they give amazing customer service but they can restore a car like nobody can. Thank you for making the experience seamless.

    Another reliable car detailing shop in town is Wax Shop Auto Detailing. This fully equipped shop offers various car care services including express hand washes and full interior cleaning to name a few.

    Now, what makes this shop stand out is its expertise in handling vehicles with collision damage. They take great care to bring damaged cars back to life, using their knowledge and high attention to detail  – it’s pretty impressive, to say the least.

    Speaking of impressive, The Wax Shop has a reputation for providing top-quality service as they take their work seriously. We’ve seen other cars at their shops and we’ve observed great results (the owners themselves we’re pretty happy too!)

    The only downside is that they’re only open on weekends by appointment, as these days are most ideal for car owners. Nonetheless, we think it’s possible to work your way around their schedule, as long as you book early. 

    Actually, it appears that they prefer not to overbook and rush through appointments, and instead aim to give each car enough time for detailing. This approach is something we value since it ensures consistent results. 

    Overall, we sure do recommend The Wax Shop Auto Detailing – they’ve got the expertise, the equipment, and the reputation to back it all up. If you’re looking for a place to take care of your car, this can be a good start. 

    Pros

    • Fully-equipped shop

    • Specializes in handling vehicles with collision damage

Thank you! – Katie Nault

    We recently had the pleasure of visiting Doctor Detail Auto Salon for their polishing service and were thoroughly impressed with the results. The staff were extremely professional and provided expert care during the process. 

    The paint job of our car looked smoother, more vibrant, and had a mirror-like finish. It was clear that the team at Doctor Detail takes immense pride in their work, paying attention even to the tiniest details.

    While there, our team couldn’t help but notice their detailing packages. We were fascinated by the extensive range of services they offered, but unfortunately, the price tag was a little steep for our budget.

    Despite the pricey packages, we were pleasantly surprised by their speedy turnaround time. It’s impressive how they manage to achieve such results without compromising on efficiency, even with what seems like a limited staff.

    Another impressive aspect we noticed was the outstanding customer service. Regardless of being short-staffed, the team made sure that we felt welcomed and attended to throughout our visit. 

    All things considered, we recommend giving them a visit if you’re looking for a detailing shop that provides excellent customer care and great results. It’s not often you find a business that excels in both aspects, but Doctor Detail Auto Salon certainly does.

    If you’re in Calgary and in need of some sprucing up for your vehicle, check out Amazing Car Detail. This team of car professionals lives up to its name, delivering an amazing level of care to both the interior and exterior of your ride.

    If you ask us, their focus on detail is what sets them apart from their competitors. This quality is evident in their deep leather cleaning service, which we found to be exceptional among their various detailing services.

    It was truly remarkable to see our seats restored to like-new condition. The team’s extensive work effort and attention were evident, and our backsides were extremely grateful for the labor put in!

    While some reviews describe the service at Amazing Car Detail as average, we have to admit that we share a similar sentiment. Although their team of experts is undoubtedly skilled, we didn’t experience the “wow” factor that we were hoping for.

    Nevertheless, considering their affordable rates, the value for money is still there, making them a practical choice for car detailing services in Calgary. So if affordability is your priority, we find them a strong first choice. 

    In terms of customer service, they sure do deliver – even offering recommendations between appointments. This is definitely a plus, as this level of transparency and communication gave us peace of mind and allowed us to make the best decisions about what services to get.

    Trying out Bubbles Car Wash & Detail Centres for the first time wasn’t the most mind-blowing experience, but we enjoyed the great results we got!

    If we’re being honest, we went there for their renowned hand wash, and we had a good time. The work effort was impressive, with their skilled staff meticulously washing every nook and cranny of our car, leaving it sparkling clean.

    We were particularly amazed at their use of high-quality soaps and soft brushes, which ensured the car’s delicate paintwork was well-protected. It’s safe to say that Bubbles Car Wash & Detail Centres knows how to handle a car with care.

    But that’s not all – Bubbles also offers a comprehensive auto detail service, which we had to try too. The shampoo and wax services, specifically, were executed with great finesse, leaving our car looking and smelling like new.

    Now, we’ll admit, we had a bit of a rocky start with their customer service. 

    At first, we were put off by the long wait time and the disorganized queue. But the staff were so friendly and accommodating that we quickly forgot our initial frustration. 

    On top of that, they made sure to keep us updated on the car’s progress and even offered our team a complimentary drink while we waited. Truly, we appreciate their efforts to make up for the inconvenience.

    With all that said, Bubbles Car Wash & Detail Centres is a good choice if you don’t mind the wait for quality cleaning services. 

    Pros

    • Specializes and car wash
    • Offers a comprehensive auto detail service
    • Friendly and accommodating staff
    • Constantly updates with the car’s progress
    • Online booking available
    • Unlimited memberships

    Cons

    • Issue regarding disorganized queue

    Awesome job, helpful staff

    I had my car washed at Bubbles today. It was a basic package, but it was an awesome job. Much better than I can do at a hand wash. Thank you Patrick and all the staff who helped me out with my car today. – Kelly Wong

    Spotless, happy with the result

    I had my car detailed at Bubbles and I’m very happy with the result. My car was full of dog hair and mud stains. It was spotless after the wash and seat shampooing! – Heba Ahmed

    This car detailing shop in Calgary called Street Elite Auto Detailing is a name that speaks for itself. Upon visiting, we can confidently say they’re pretty much at the top of their game when it comes to car detailing. 

    From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the welcoming customer service. A complimentary beverage and snack added to the experience and eased our worries about the waiting time.

    Now for the real deal, their staff’s knowledge and enthusiasm for cars were refreshing. It might be one of our rarest visits where we actually felt like the staff seriously love what they do – not just for the buck. 

    On top of that, we can see that they use high-quality products resulting in exceptional results. Of course, the workers who did all the labor share a good part of the praise too. 

    One particular job we witnessed them doing is their paint correction process. Their advanced techniques effectively removed swirls and scratches from the paint, resulting in a flawless finish that any car owner will love. 

    Now, while booking an appointment was a bit of a challenge, they made every effort to accommodate our needs and make the experience worth the wait. We’re considering coming back just to make sure they’re really consistent with work!

    Bow Valley Auto Detailing is also an option worth checking out. They’re all about getting the job done right, and they don’t mess around, and we can say that from experience.

    We went there during our car detailing shop hopping, and they had one of our cars washed, waxed, and shining in no time. To say the least, we were impressed by how quickly they worked without sacrificing quality.

    But if you’re looking for ongoing car maintenance, Bow Valley also offers recurring detailing packages. This is perfect if you want to keep your car looking great all year round. 

    Plus, it’s a great way to save some cash in the long run if you want to stick with this shop. 

    Now, the shop truly stands out with its commitment to using manual tools. This ensures that every inch of your car is thoroughly cleaned and taken care of without any risk of damage from automated equipment.

    Another impressive thing about them is their approach to scratches and scrapes. They take the time to carefully assess the damage and recommend the best course of action, even if that means recommending a more involved repair. 

    However, one small flaw is that their repair services can be a bit pricey. But with Bow Valley Auto Detailing’s transparent pricing, at least you’ll know what you’re in for before committing.

    Pros

    • Quick car detailing
    • Professional detailers
    • Offers recurring detailing packages
    • Uses manual tools
    • Effective approach to scratches and scrapes
    • Transparent pricing

    Cons

    Fantastic job, puts a lot of care

    I highly recommend this place for detailing. I came in and Omar took the time to make sure we were on the same page for what needed to get done on my vehicle which was to get it clean for selling. I came back astonished at the fantastic job he did. My vehicle came back pristine as if it were brand new. You can tell he puts a lot of care and attention into his work and his customer service was amazing. Thanks Bow Valley Auto Detail! – Melissa B

    Top Gear Car Wash in Calgary offers a lot of things that any average car owner will appreciate in the long run. 

    First off, we were impressed by their car wash service. It was not just a typical rinse and soap, but a thorough process that left our car spotless and shiny  – we also appreciated the extra effort they put into cleaning the wheels and tires.

    But what really stood out for us was their self-service car wash option.It allowed us to have control over the level of cleaning we wanted for our car, making it more controlled in terms of consistency. 

    Plus, the option to use the provided vacuum is really helpful, although this isn’t something new for self-service car wash services. 

    We also appreciated the bay features, such as the high-pressure wash and the foam brush. These features made the car wash process easier and more efficient.

    While their services are limited, the shop provides a level of detailing that sets them apart from other car wash shops. They may not provide full paint correction or other detailing services, but their thoroughness in their car wash service compensates.

    Overall, if you’re looking for a quick and efficient car wash, then Top Gear Car Wash is definitely worth a visit. However, if you’re after a more thorough cleaning, you might want to consider other options.

    Pros

    • Detailed car washing service
    • Has 13 bays of self-serve wand wash
    • High-speed automatic wash
    • In n’ out express clean
    • Express polish service
    • Helpful staff

    YYC Detail offers various flexible choices – from washing to waxing, polishing to shampooing, they offer a wide range of services that will cater to all your car’s needs.

    One aspect that stood out to us was their exterior detailing. YYC Detail’s team of experts does an amazing job of restoring a car’s shine and protecting it from environmental factors, resulting in long-lasting results.

    While their exterior detailing is superb, we did find their communication to be lacking. The staff was polite, but they didn’t provide us with as much information as we would have liked about the detailing process. 

    Additionally, one area where YYC Detail could improve, in our opinion, is their pricing flexibility. We found that their packages were geared more towards those with a larger budget, which may not be ideal for everyone.

    On the bright side, the facility itself is impressive. It’s clean, well-maintained, and has a comfortable waiting area with Wi-Fi and a TV. 

    Overall, YYC Detail is a car detailing shop that we will recommend for its excellent exterior detailing services. With a bit of improvement in their communication, they have the potential to be an even more exceptional car detailing shop.

    Pros

    • Offers a wide range of services
    • High-quality work
    • Specializes in exterior detailing
    • Great work facility
    • Comfortable waiting area
    • Free quotation

    Cons

    • On the expensive side

    So clean, awesome service

    The quality and service is unlike any other detail shop in the city. Brought in my car for standard detail package, thought it was polished when I came to pick up. Never seen it so clean. Awesome service from Danny and Huss. – AJ Jasem

    Fast and professional

    The best detailing service in town! The team is very professional and you’ll get your car back like the day it was in the showroom. – Artin Rezaee
