Our Story

Meet The Owners.

Mr. Detail Auto Salon all got started when its founders, high school friends Mike Rafael and Tom Shearer, working together at The Rainier Club as valets, they decided to start a mobile auto detailing service in Seattle.

One thing led to another and with the wheels in motion, they quit their day job and opened their first shop in a downtown Seattle parking garage, while simultaneously providing mobile detailing services within the metro area. In the years since, the duo is currently still in downtown Seattle as well as two free-standing facilities in Ballard and West Seattle, Washington.

Both certified master-level detailers (of which very few exist nationwide), Mike and Tom proudly hold Master Detailer accreditation with Detailing Success and also Accredited Detailers for Ceramic Pro. They have also completed the XPEL Protection Film installation course in San Antonio, Texas. Never ones to sleep on their craft, they both continue to attend private instruction courses within the auto detailing industry in effort to maintain their peak knowledge and performance.

From our detailing projects to our full-service car washes in Seattle, Mr. Detail only uses professional-grade products and equipment, such as Mr. DIY, Griots, Sonax, Meguiars, Ceramic Pro,  and Rupes polishers to name a few. We meticulously utilize these products to maintain and rejuvenate every inch of your vehicle.

In addition, Mr. Detail is a proud member of the International Detailing Association (IDA), the leading association for professional detailing operations, suppliers, and consultants to the industry.

Whether you have a daily driver or a garage queen, our highly trained detail and full-service car wash technicians will provide a level of care suited for you and your car. Stop in to Mr. Detail Auto Salon today.
