Exclamation $45.00 DETAILING in Flushing, Queens!!

High End Place that’s Doing Detailing its called TinT Max Inc. In Flushing, Queens, NY

How I heard of it: My boy put me on to it, there’s a deal going on its 50% so it’s only $45.00 which is really good! It’s on 171-08 39th Ave Flushing, NY 11358 (Tint Max Inc)

I think the offer expires in 2days from today 09-23-11. But you don’t have to use till end of Jan-2012.. If anything let me know when all of you guys want to go or whatever.

$45.00 CANT GO WRONG!!

That is a basic detail, which when read through amounts to an enhanced car wash...

I go there once a week for a handwash. They are awesome. Raining everyday for the next week though so I prob won't get that detail.

there is nothing wrong with using a sponge

Edit: in fact, many of the "big name" detailers opt for sponges over sheep mitt

pretty sure that's just a stock picture.

Also, I'm pretty sure their basic detail is more than what's mentioned on the site. I've never asked about it, but whenever I go there for a regular hand wash they clean my door jambs and vacuum the interior.

I went there once, wasnt impressed but not bad if your feeling lazy and dont want to use a drive thru. I feel I do a better job in my driveway and in a shorter time. The guy left some water marks, but I didnt bust his chops since he did work hard and it was a hot day, he did suggest that next time I get clayed, which he was right, I desperately needed it. AC cooled waiting room w. tv and magazines was greatly appreciated on a hot july day.

I'll buy one to used when the weather gets cold

Yea, they usually have some pretty nice cars there. Saw this F430 there just the other day. Although I kind of have to disagree with you. Their hand washes are only $20, and they spend about 45 minutes on each car and do a pretty damn good job.

yea for 20 bucks its a good deal, but i think i paid closer to 60 for a higher package which is why I wasnt really too thrilled, but I am not trying to bash; just giving my experience. They do run a very good operation over there, and I would use them again if I didnt have time to wash it myself.

To be fair, you can expect to pay 45 dollars for a wash + wax at any handwash you go to. So any service above that is a good deal. I actually go to this place strictly out of convenience. They do a pretty decent job, but nobody is going to take care of your car the way YOU would. FYI, their regular wash includes vacuuming, cleaning of door jambs and cleaning of rubber mats. That description is stupid.

If you are interested, go here http://highlinedetailing.com/auto-detailing.php

That is their website, call and inquire about what the package actually contains.

Otherwise, if you really want a guy who runs his OWN shop and cares about his customers and business, check out BigA Detailing. He is in whitestone and is top notch.

quick google will show you a bunch of results and he does only forum based traffic. he is on g35nyc, e46fanatics, the local subaru boards etc. Very good work and he works on the cars himself rather than the employees who don't care at highline.

Big A only does appts though.
