Our Story

Who Are We?

Mr. Detail Auto Salon all got started when its founders, high school friends Mike Rafael and Tom Shearer, working together at a Seattle country club, decided they could make a living cleaning and detailing the same cars they were parking for members every day.

With the wheels in motion, they 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 opened two more downtown garage locations as well as their very first free-standing facility in suburban Ballard, Washington.

Both certified master level detailers (of which very few exist nationwide), Mike and Tom proudly hold accreditation with Detailing Success and Master Accredited Detailers for Ceramic Pro and Gtechniq North America. 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 P&S Detail Products, Sonax, Meguiars, Ceramic Pro, and Flex and Rupes polishers to name a few. We meticulously utilize these products to maintain and rejuvenate every inch of your vehicle.

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.
