Our Customers Should Know

Vital To The Long Life Of Your Vehicle

Professional Detailing is very vital to the long life of your vehicle and helps retain its value. Detailing keeps the wear and tear from harsh weather and driving conditions in Upstate NY from doing permanent damage to your ride. Professionally trained technicians are here to intimately take care of your ride and we use only the best products and equipment.

Upkeep Is Necessary

Vehicle owners recognize that a certain measure of upkeep is necessary to maintain safe, efficient and good looking vehicles. Making sure your vehicle is running and handling properly for your safe and comfort is very important. Maintaining your exterior and interior is just as important. One of the ways to protect against environmental damage is to wax your vehicle. Bird Droppings, Brake Dust, Rain, Salt & Sun can take their toll on a vehicle, and waxing can help combat these often inevitable environmental factors. Furthermore, waxing increases resale value at trade-in time and can make it easier to keep your vehicle clean.

Waxing Provides Benefits

Deep Shine: Wax is the easiest way to make a vehicle look brand new again.

Fill In Scratches: While wax will not remove scratches, it can fill in shallow scratches to make them less visible.

Reduce Friction: Car wax smooths the surface of the paint and will reduce the friction between debris and the vehicles exterior.

Catches Contaminants: Airborne contaminants will be trapped in the wax rather than settle into the paint and etch the finish permanently.


Waxing remains an important part of vehicle maintenance, safeguarding a vehicle from the elements while also keeping the vehicle looking new.

Exterior Issues

Clearcoats are Scratch Sensitive

Clearcoat finishes are also easily scratched, this is called Scratch-Sensitive. What this means is although clearcoats tend to be harder than the old school lacquers and enamels used before 1980 and all the way back to the time of the Model T, they still scratch easily and the scratches or swirls are unsightly and cause your vehicle's paint to deteriorate faster than it would without them.

Factory Paint Is Thin

The factory clear coat on most cars is around 2 Mils Thin, thats thinner than the average 3M Post-it Note. If too much clear paint is removed in an effort to remove a deeper defect 100% its possible the vehicle could suffer from clear coat failure down the road due to too thin of a layer of clear paint left on the vehicle. Hire Hitch which is a skilled and knowledgeable detailer and you can trust we will do what is right for the paint and thus do what is right for you our customer.

Deeper Defects

Deeper below surface paint defects, like key scratches and severe Type II Water Spots may be too deep to safely remove. For most vehicles and most people, it is better to learn to trust your detailer to make the judgement call as to which defects to let remain versus trying to remove 100%. Often times thorough compounding and polishing using premium quality products will reduce the visibility of deeper defects to the point that they are a lot less visible and this is the preferred approach for any vehicle that is used as a daily driver, not a sunny-days-only garage queen.ly

Just Had Your Vehicle Detailed
