The cost of a standard car detailing is between $100 to $300 and up for a two- to five-hour job. A deluxe four- to 18-hour detailing costs $150 to $500 and up as of April 2015, according to CostHelper. Standard detailing includes interior cleaning with a basic wash and wax.
Extra services such as removing dog hair or smoke can increase the cost by $10 to $100. Other options that add to the detailing costs include shampooing an engine or adding Scotchgard to a vehicle interior.
Detailers may discount their prices for multiple vehicles or payment in advance. The discounts may be a percentage taken off of the regular price or a dollar amount subtracted from the total service cost.
