My girlfriend was driving my car last summer when she got caught in a flash flood.
Even though she could not see the bottom of the puddle, she still decided to drive through.
The car ended up in 3 ft of mud. After the tow truck driver fished the car out of the mud, he suggested having the vehicle detailed. I contacted the insurance company and I found out that they would pay for some of the damages to the vehicle. The cost of the detail job was included, so I used a company that has great reviews and very expensive prices. The auto detail team filled out a 75 point checklist that included all of the areas they covered during the detail. They even removed my seats to clean out the bottom of the floorboards. By the time I got the car back from the auto detailing shop, it looked brand new and smelled just as clean. I was truly amazed by the custom detail job performed on the car. Of course it was $475, so it should have been clean enough to eat food off of the floor. When I saw the itemized bill and all of the charges for the vehicle cleaning, I was incredibly happy that my girlfriend and I contacted the insurance company to see if they would handle any of the charges. The $475 bill from the auto detailing place was enough to cover our deductible. We also got brand new seats, because all of the upholstery was wet and covered with mildew. Other than the engine and the transmission, we pretty much had a brand new car by the time the insurance company was done.
