Great gift idea for Dad this Christmas

My wife has been very keen of late to update her vehicle, in her opinion her wheels have been looking a bit tired for a while now. Problem is she already has a beautiful car, it has got all the bells and whistles and though it is a 2009 model it still has less than 60,000 km on the clock.

I made a deal with her, if the guys at AutoWorx WA cannot make your car look every little bit like you want it to be, then I would trade her in and get her a shiny new toy.

So we swapped cars for a day and I took her Camry into Autoworx WA shop in Baden Street, Osborne Park leaving it in the safe hands of Lee Tierney. To complete my journey into the office I only had to walk the 300 meters to the Glendalough Station and I was on my way.

Whilst I was at the office, Autoworx shampooed, waxed and polished the exterior of the vehicle, bringing the paint back to a brilliant shine. The alloy wheels got a good going over also and when I saw them I truly thought they were entirely new rims, they were sparkling. I was feeling pretty sure that my wife was going to be enjoying the feel of driving a new car, for a lot less expense than actually trading to a new car.

In the morning as I made my way to the train station, the thought crossed my mind that the interior of the car would not be too different when I returned, as I believed it was in reasonable condition. Nothing could have been further from the truth, as I found when I climb into a beautifully cleaned space, the vehicle was in showroom condition from bumper to bumper.

Many years ago an old car salesman told me when he was looking for a good detailer, he'd have them clean a car and on completion he would inspect 3 areas often over looked by the detailers. If they passed that test he was happy with their work.

Those three areas are as follows:

1. Behind the door to the fuel cap

Fuel cap after

2. The panels inside and around the doors and door frames

3. The engine compartment

When I inspected Autoworx's work, all three of these areas were looking like new again. The dirt and grime that had accumulated in these areas had looked terrible. When I saw how clean they are now I was 100% sure I did not have to worry about looking for a new vehicle. My only problem now is how I get my wife to agree to swapping cars a little more often.

Thank you Autoworx you have done a brilliant job and I will be bringing my own car in for a clean in the very near future.

Pricing varies pending on a few things; the size of the vehicle, the age or state of the car and what or how much you want done.

I paid a couple of hundred for full wax, shine and general tidy up. My brother in law Wayne got his Landcruiser GXR done after a big trip through the centre of Australia on red dusty roads. It took Autoworx 2 whole days to complete. Regardless of what he paid, he was so happy with the work - no more signs of red dust in his very expensive pride and joy.

When I think about it, my small investment was always going to be a win win for me, as had my wife still wanted to go for a new car, her Camry was ready to go to market and looking so good, was always going to bring the best trade in price possible.
