A motorcycle is one of the greatest symbols of freedom and adventure out there, so why is it that motorcycle care tends to feel so much like a burden? Luckily, it doesn’t have to. While some people get enjoyment from becoming experts in motorcycle care and doing all of the work on them, there are plenty of us that don’t want to spend hours tinkering with them, potentially causing problems, and cleaning them. We just want to ride!
That’s where professional detailing comes in. Keep reading to figure out how to chose the best professional detailing service for your motorcycle.
Consult Your Dealership
One of the very first things you can do when shopping around for a motorcycle detailing service is to consult the dealership where you purchased your bike. A lot of dealerships, especially those of known name brands, will offer various services for the bikes that they’ve sold. This can range from general maintenance to repairs to regular detailing to help keep your ride in top condition.
If you didn’t buy your motorcycle from a dealership, your dealership doesn’t offer detailing services, or you simply choose not to go to them for detailing work, there are still plenty of other motorcycle detailers out there. The first step to locating the one for you is to do some research. Figure out what’s nearby, then check reviews for local professional motorcycle detailers.
You can find reviews for local businesses just about anywhere — social media, word of mouth, and sometimes even on the business’s homepage. In fact, if a professional detailer doesn’t include any reviews from customers, you may want to consider a company that has a more established reputation.
Check Services Offered
While you’re making your shortlist of potential motorcycle dealers, make sure you verify that each company has experience with motorcycle detailing. Motorcycles have a lot more exposed moving parts than cars, which means they require specialized care. It’s important that any detailer knows the proper tools, cleaners, and methods for caring for motorcycles — both for the appearance of the bike and for the rider’s safety.
When you have your list narrowed down to a few potential dealerships, consider the different detailing packages each detailing expert offers. Is there any information about the average cost of a detailing job, and do they have detailed information about the services they offer? If not, see if you can contact a representative and get a quote.
Keep in mind, the cheapest option isn’t always the best one. Getting the best value means ensuring that your detailer is an expert and uses high quality materials, to ensure no damage comes to your motorcycle and it gets the care it needs.
It’s also worth checking to see if there are any deals or discounts being offered. Mobile detailing companies, for example, often offer discounts for work done to multiple vehicles. You may be able to get all of your vehicles detailed at once at a discount, without ever having to leave home!
Mobile Detailing Pros offers just that: we come to you wherever you are, and often offer discounts for working on multiple vehicles. Best of all, we have years of experience detailing motorcycles, so you can rest easy knowing we know how to give your motorcycle the specialized care it needs to look and run its best.
