Car Detailing/Cleaning in Dubai --- HELP Jul 15, 2010
Guys and Gals --- what is a good place to go and get your car detailed?? I don't mean the small clean you get at the petrol stations - I want to get the inside properly cleaned, outside polished/buffed. I found a few places on dubizzle/gulf news but wanted a referral for a good place at a good price :?: Thanks

Hey - I would check out Zain Car Clean in Dubai - I got my car done a couple of months back and used them - they gave me a better price than the others in Dubai by a fair margin and the quality of their work and finishing was really quite good. They also provide a pick up and drop off service which was really helpful for me. I have recommended them to a bunchof people and have only heard good things. They are on google for address/location and 056 1251856.
Good luck! 8)

Wow - that was a quick response. Thank you. I called some place in Dubai (the name escapes me buts it Shine something) and they quoted me 425dhs just for cleaning the inside of my X5 and another 200dhs for polishing the outside which just sounds way too much. Have you got any idea what these guys at Zain Car Cleaning charge?

Also I like the sound of the pick up and drop off service - I really can't be hassled in dropping it off and getting a taxi home and than getting a taxi there to pick it up. Thanks for the post mate.

No problem. Its best to call them and check the price as I think it will depend on the car but I have a 4x4 as well and they charged me 450dhs for the whole works (internal shampoo/clean, external wax/polish/buffing and also through in an engine steam wash). Personally I found that price reasonable as its something I only do once a year. I had called two other companies before Zain Car Clean and had a similar experience to you as they were both around the 700dhs mark. FYI the pick up and drop off costs depending on where you live, they charged me 30dhs which again I thought was really reasonable and definitely cheaper than the 2 way taxi cost.

I just got my car done by Al Futtaim (Toyota/Lexus/Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler/Volvo/ etc etc etc) for 300dhs. They shampoo the carpets and clean the entire interior. They did a very good job.
In comparison, Sara Auto previously did my car for 700dhs and it was no better than a 20dhs job at the Emarat service station.

Yeah I heard Al Futtaim was not bad for price but when I checked with them and asked them what products they used they told me it would be chemical cleaning products (no brand) rather than specific detailing products which are industry recommended, had no side effects for skin contact and are known not to cause any damage to upholstery. What I liked about Zain Car Clean and why I recommended them was because they use only Meguiars products which is probably the most respected and recognised brand for car detailing products. Also they also do the full interior clean for 300 Dhs. The 450 Dhs was for the whole deal (internal clean, external wax/polish and engine steam wash).

Zain sound pretty good. I just went with Al Futtaim because my car was in for a service at the time. I had some pretty ugly stains in the carpet. The volvo is designed pretty bad for cleaning also, with recessed seat rails etc and is a real pain to vacuum out, let alone clean. But it came back as good as new.
However, I was then brought back down to UAE earth when told I need a new set of new tires at 1500dhs each. When compared to 150GBP from the UK, I am almost ready to get on a plane and fly some back with me.

Thank you Daniel77. I used Zain Car Cleaning in Dubai as you recommended last week. Flawless service in terms of having my car picked up and dropped off later that same day (they said they typically do next day service but accomodated me) and I can't fault the quality of their work. There were quite a few stains on my upholstery and a few marks which I didn't even expect them to be able to get out but they did. The polish and wax was also top notch. I only have good things to say about this company. Thank you again for the referral.

Cool - this is just what I was looking for as both of my cars look like trash inside. Can anyone tell me what number to get hold of these guys (Zain Car Clean) on? Or where they are located? Also does anyone know if they are able to handle/repair small scratches and upholstery stains that are about 1 year old? Always good to get a referral as I used a company last year and they were pants and expensive :blackeye: .

Joe, the contact number is listed on the discussion above and 056 125 1856. Zain is able to deal with small scratches, they don't do any repairing (painting, etc) but if the scratch is only as deep as the surface coat (ie your nail doesn't get stuck in the sractch) they are usually able to remove it with some of the scratch removal and polish products combined with buffing. In terms of the stain its really down to what caused it and how engrained it is, they did manage to remove the stains I was concerned about for what its worth but it best to show them. Good luck.

Thanks bud. I can see the number on the chat now (duh!!). Will give them a call and get sorted out. Will let you all know if I agree with the reviews and what my experience of their service was like. :D

As promised my feedback. This is a good recommendation. I tried these guys out and they new what they were doing. They were nice, cheap and quick and I gotta admit that the pick up and drop off service is really cool and saves a bunch of time and taxi money. Oh yes and they got rid of most of the small scratches I had through buffing and polishing. Thanks again. :D
