Hello. I'm Scott, owner and founder of THE DETAIL GUY, LLC. I have been passionately detailing autos, motorcycles, boats, you name it--even the neighborhood kids' bicycles if they swing by while I'm outside working on a detail--for more than 35 years!
Until 2018, detailing was a part-time hobby while I worked full-time in the printing business. As that industry evolved and requests for my detailing services became more frequent, I decided to turn my hobby into a business and made it official as THE DETAIL GUY.
I've been operating in the NW suburbs of Chicago, and as of August 2020, I am scheduling mobile appointments in HARBOR COUNTRY--in advance of opening my second location in New Buffalo in spring 2021. Through the contact form below, email or text, please reach out for more information, pricing and availability. Convenient pick-up and drop-off service available in the NW burbs; on-site mobile service in Harbor Country. Custom gift certificates are also available for any service in any denomination.
With 70+ 5-star reviews across Google, YELP and facebook, I am lucky to have earned the trust of so many wonderful clients. I also appreciate the support I've received from friends, family, neighbors and beyond as I turned my passion into a full-time career. This business has given me the flexibility to spend time with my family, pictured below, and prioritize activities with my wife Kris, kids--Jessi (a recent Mizzou grad) and Josh (as he is active with two baseball leagues)--as well as our Labrador fur kids-- Logan (8), Cooper (3) and Penny (1).
Please spread the word and pass on any recommendations to make my business adventure even more successful. Thank you so very much. See you soon, New Buffalo!

I’ve been meaning to get my car detailed for quite a while now, it wasn’t until someone recommended me The Detail Guy, nonetheless I was more than satisfied with the service he provided. The Detail Guy went above and beyond including exceptional customer service, I will definitely be recommending more people to go to The Detail Guy, and will be coming back again as well!
FELIPE R. (10.2020)
Scott was great. He got the car cleaner than I expected. It had gone since 2007 probably never getting the inside cleaned and he made it look brand new. The price was very reasonable as I price shopped, everyone wanted to add this and that; Scott was one price for doing it all.

DAREL M (9.2020)
Scott is amazing. I had to reschedule and he was so gracious. My car looked so good.
MELISSA M (7.2020)
Had my car detailed by Scott today, and I couldn’t be happier. My car feels like new, and he went above and beyond to fix a couple of vents he noticed during the detail. Pricing is fair and affordable. Definitely using his devices again.
STACY A. (4.2020)
Removed business decals from my vehicle, and polished exterior for temporary finish until I could return for the full detail job. SCOTT REALLY KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING
