What Our Clients Say

As the owner of a 7 year old 5th wheeler, I got to say that this guy did a wonderful job of bringing our RV back to its sparkling best. Shiny shiny shiny, is what I say. I have had 3 professionals try to do it previously, but none came up with the results that Daniel from Ricardo's Detail Garage achieved.
Alan Gill
Had my paint taken care of by Daniel! I must say it looks better then it did brand new from the dealership and you can see the sparkle in my black paint that I never even knew was there. Best money spent having Fireball Ceramic Paint Protection applied to my Elantra. We love Fireball so much now that once we upgraded my partner's car we opted out of dealership paint protection for his new vehicle and went straight back to Ricardo's Detail Garage knowing we were in the best hands. I cannot recommend these guys enough!
Jessica Fitzpatrick
Daniel provides an incredible service and is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about his work. Would definitely recommend if wanting a thorough and long-lasting detail at fair prices.
Patrick Kav

Cannot recommend enough! The professionalism and passion Dan brings is incredible!

After using Ricardo's Detail Garage for cars undergoing insurance repairs at work, there was no question who I would call when it came to needing someone to do my personal car.

Car covered in primer overspray from another shop and Dan made quick work of getting it back to looking better than before. Seriously wouldn't get anyone else to touch my car. Thanks again for the fantastic job!!!

Zac Campisi
Daniel spent almost 10 hours to do both of our cars, the fireball paint protection looks amazing. Really happy with his detailing service.
