“I truly wish there was a way I could rate this car detailing business and service higher than five stars! I called in a panic this morning around 8 AM after leaving my sunroof open overnight when it had rained. Clint called me back right away and ended up reorganizing his entire schedule around and got to me by 9:35 AM. I was so impressed that he drove all the way to my school (I’m a teacher), did the work on our outdoor basketball court, and was done within an hour. He was very helpful and very kind and reassuring!! 1000000000% recommend this business and Clint, specifically.”  -Google Customer Review

“Clint’s work is fantastic. I got my husband’s car’s interior and exterior detailed for Father’s Day and surprised him by having Clint come to the office to complete it while my husband was working. His work was exceptional, and Clint couldn’t have been friendlier. My husband and I own multiple cars and he takes care of them like they are his pets, and he was so impressed with Clint’s work on his car. We recommended Clint to everyone after seeing the end result, especially for the price.”  -Google Customer Review

“Clint was very accommodating, as I do not have an area at my home where he could do the detailing. He suggested a Columbus Ohio grocery store parking lot, which just down the street, was very convenient.  Estimating it would take 2 hours, which was spot on, he made it easy for me to plan my day.  He did an amazing job on my car, it honestly looks brand new and I could not be more pleased with the car detailing. I would highly recommend Auto Detail Doctor!  It was money well spent!”  -Google Customer Review

“I scheduled an appointment, but they had a cancellation they came to my house within 45 minutes 4 DAYS EARLIER THAN SCHEDULED and did an AMAZING job on my car. Someone had broken into it and there were glass and debris everywhere, the previous owner had been a smoker, and due to some misjudgment on my part, the car was covered in pet hair.  They were able to COMPLETELY eliminate the stains and odors; you can’t even tell they were there!  I was expecting my car to be clean, but not THIS clean. AND it took literally 45 minutes. AMAZING! I am astounded by the awesome work Auto Detail Doctor does and I recommend them to anyone and everyone! I only wish they could do house calls to Arizona so they could clean my brothers’ cars because they are NASTY! haha :)”  -Google Customer Review

“I had a GREAT experience today with Auto Detail Doctor. Owner/operator Clint Allerton was a complete professional. I was in search of a good auto detailer and found him here on Angie’s List. I couldn’t be more satisfied. Clint arrived on time at 7:00 am this morning, went straight to work and now my vehicle looks like it came off the showroom floor. I highly recommend his services and will have Clint service my vehicle from now on. Thank you, Clint!” – Google Customer Review

“I had my car detailed today, inside and out, along with the headlight restoration and the engine cleaning. It looks amazing and was worth every penny. My car was stolen, and apparently, the thieves spent two days smoking in it, it was filthy when recovered. I was considering selling it because I didn’t like the idea of using it. After Clint performed his magic, it is like it was never taken and used by strangers. Thanks, Clint, for giving me my car back!”  -Google Customer Review

“The owner of this establishment, Clint, was a very nice and polite person. I did not have a ride, so he drove me to the town area and I had some coffee, read a book, and stopped at Wendy’s, which was especially nice.  Clint also picked me up. These guys went above and beyond to make this experience great for me. The quality was great and my van looked great (the engine compartment looked like something you’d see at a dealer, that’s how nice it was). They cleaned up the interior really well for me. These guys are really, really hard-working and honest people. I will have them clean my vehicles from now on.”  -Customer Review

Many times, our customers ask how we can get leather to clean up so nicely. There are a lot of different ways to clean leather seats, and our blog titled Using Steam To Clean A Leather Car Seat shows one of our ways. One of the things that set us apart from other detail companies, is that we go the extra mile in attempting to make your automobile look as good as it can, is using our vapor steamer. The vapor steamer is designed to go after those tough jobs, ones that require that EXTRA deep cleaning. Check out another of our blogs that shows the machine in use by reading about how to clean a dirty console.

  • Personal Service – As the owner and operator, Clint takes his work personally.  Many times one may hear that you shouldn’t take work personally. That is not the case here. It gets taken personally, and the ultimate goal is to have you call again in the future for yet another detail. Clint prides himself on this achievement.
  • To be the best – Essentially a one-man operation, Clint cannot help but try to be the best. Extremely competitive, it’s always a priority to overachieve.

We have a lot of REAL reviews on our Testimonials page. Here are some examples of those reviews. Read what these people had to say about their detailing experiences.

“Clint went above and beyond to detail my car today; he even waited out the rain as opposed to having to reschedule I was anxious to have my interior detailed before out of town family came in tomorrow. My car has never looked better; I thought my seat was stained forever and he had it immaculate!!! Thanks, Clint you are awesome!! I’ll refer you to everyone I know, and be a returning customer.”  -Customer Review

“I called Clint and while I did get his voicemail he called me back within 5 minutes of me leaving him a message.  After explaining what I was looking for as far as the detail was concerned and he assured me that he would do his best work on my Tesla Model S. I had already seen his Google reviews so I felt confident that he would do a nice job. I hadn’t used detailing services before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I felt like I was in good hands. My appointment was set a couple of days out which I thought was pretty good too.

He called me to keep me up to date on his progress in keeping to my scheduled appointment time. He arrived on time, answered my questions, and very genuine.  Clint was very nice, easy to talk to, and meticulous about trying to make me happy with the service he was providing. He gave my car a thorough wash. I think one of the best things about working with him is that he communicates with you throughout the service.  While he was providing the service, I was also getting an education out of it all, too. He never tried to force unnecessary advice or services.

All in all, I ended up getting the full detail, interior and exterior, and polish. One surprise for me was that my steering wheel had some major cosmetic issues and when he was done it looked brand new…it was crazy! 🙂  My car looked near showroom ready after the service was rendered.  Car detailing Columbus Ohio has never been better with Clint’s exceptional services.  I am thrilled with the results of this car detailing service.

I’m very happy with the services, therefore, I recommend Clint to anyone without reservation – You’re in good hands with him.”  -Word for word from Google
