Detail Shops in Central Jersey

Are there any detail shops that you could recommend in Central Jersey?? Just ordered a detail kit from CGuys but I don't know how to use clay bars to remove tree saps, grimes, etc. on the car. I want a pro detailer to remove it for me (also swirl marks) and then I will try to keep the car clean.

Thanks for any input.

I live in Morganville NJ. There is Auto Image in Freehold NJ on Route 9 and there is also a very nice shop in downtown Freehold at the intersection where Route 79 and Route 537 merge.

Got my tints from auto image. Did a good job. They don't look like they focus too much on detailing.
Are you talking about Kinsey's in freehold? They do a great job when you get a hand car wash. I hurd they are planning to close soon because they are not making money.

Detail Doctor in Shrewsbury does the best work Ive seen in the area. They just expanded their building which is a good sign.

Ok. I will check it out this weekend. I need someone who can clay my car, could be really easy for somebody who knows how to do it. I ordered stuffs from CG, got buffing machine too but never really tried it yet. I want to maintain the car myself once the car is detailed.


Thanks.

IMO your best bet is to wait until spring to get the paint correction. With all the salt and garbage in winter it is nearly impossible to avoid swirls especially with black paint. And plus you wouldn't want to get a polish more than once a year because it takes some of your clear off.
yea i would go to staten island..this place gunan be any good?

You are probably closer to AndrewBigA, PM him. He gave me good rates, just don't know if I'm willing to drive to Whitestone this time. Once you get back to NJ, car is already dirty.
