About Us

In 2019, in the height of the pandemic, Trey’s love for the automotive world inspired him to take a swing at beginning his very own premium detailing business. In the months to follow, Trey spent nearly every evening and weekend detailing, educating and perfecting his skill-set in the family pole barn. From a dimly lit family barn to a fully illuminated make shift detailing garage, his eye for perfection and detail eventually provided him with a large enough clientele base to expand.

In July of 2020, all the hard work had paid off. Elite Auto Care finally signed the lease for their very first detailing shop, located off of US Highway 33, Elkhart, IN. Continuing to strive for excellence and nothing short of it, the business continued to flourish.

In early summer of 2021 Elite required even more space to keep up with the high demand. Elite Auto Care not only offers top tier services, but has also expanded from cars, trucks and motorcycles; to boats, toys, transportation vehicles and RVs! Providing the best detailing, paint correction and ceramic coating packages in the county.

At Elite Auto Care, we value our employees and customers as our very own. Your investment will always leave our shop with a showroom finish and 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Full Car Detailing: What We Do?

A complete detailing involves more than just a car wash and vacuuming the carpets. A complete detailing results in a vehicle that is show-room clean inside and out.

To start, on the outside we throughly clean your vehicle with a soap to remove most of the loose dirt and other contaminants. Then we dry the vehicle with microfiber towels. If needed, we may need to use techniques to remove difficult contaminants like tar, tree sap, bugs and other materials that soap won’t take off. The surface may need “claying” with a clay bar to remove contaminates that make your paint feel bumpy.

We then clean the outside of your glass using the appropriate cleaners and techniques to make them crystal clear.

Next, we thoroughly clean your wheels to remove tough grime and brake dust. Once the wheels are clean, the tires are throughly cleaned and tire dressing is applied.

For standard detailing services that do not require a ceramic coating, we finish by applying a wax or spray sealant to protect the paint between washings.

On the inside of your vehicle, we start by throughly vacuuming the carpet and fabrics.

We then wipe down plastics and leather using safe cleaners and microfiber towels. We use brushes to remove any and all dust that collect in hard to reach areas around the interior. We are always careful not to scratch clear and opaque interior or dashboard plastics.

Next, we shampoo the carpets and use fabric cleaners on the seats. If requested,  we will apply carpet and fabric protectants to make your interior’s appearance last longer and easier to clean.

Last but not least, we will clean the inside of your glass to remove grime and chemical overspray to make them crystal clear again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Elite Auto Care specializes in high-quality auto detailing services in Elkhart, Indiana. Our services include ceramic coating, paint correction and enhancement, RV detailing and ceramic coating, paint protection film, window tinting, and premium detailing.
A ceramic coating is a cutting-edge protective layer for your vehicle’s exterior. It’s a liquid polymer that, when applied to the surface of a car, bonds with the paint chemically and forms a hardened shield. This isn’t just any protective layer; it’s one that provides robust resistance to water, dirt, and even sun damage due to its UV-resistant properties. The hydrophobic nature of the coating means that water beads up and slides off the surface, minimizing water spots and dirt accumulation.

It also adds to the aesthetic appeal of your vehicle by giving it a rich, glossy finish that lasts for years. By creating a barrier against environmental elements like bird droppings, tree sap, and acid rain, a ceramic coating protects your investment by keeping the underlying paint in pristine condition.
The Paint Correction and Enhancement service at Elite Auto Care focuses on restoring the vehicle’s paintwork to a like-new condition. This process involves meticulously polishing the surface to remove visible scratches and swirl marks, restoring the paint’s gloss and color depth, and smoothing the paint surface. This service is ideal for vehicle owners looking to restore their car’s appearance to its original, flawless state.
Understanding the unique needs of recreational vehicles, Elite Auto Care offers specialized RV detailing services. This includes comprehensive cleaning of both the exterior and interior, along with maintenance and minor repairs. Additionally, they provide a ceramic coating for RVs to protect the exterior from environmental damage and maintain a lasting shine, tailoring their services to the specific requirements of RVs.
Paint Protection Film (PPF) applied at Elite Auto Care offers several advantages to vehicle owners. This clear, durable film protects the car’s paint from scratches, chips, and stains, and also provides UV protection to prevent paint fading. Some PPFs even possess self-healing properties, allowing minor scratches to disappear with heat application. Applying PPF helps in preserving the car’s resale value by maintaining the quality of the paint.
Window tinting at Elite Auto Care enhances a car’s functionality and aesthetics in various ways. It provides UV protection, aiding in the prevention of interior fading and reducing the risk of skin damage. The tinting also helps maintain a cooler interior, offers privacy and security, reduces glare, and allows customization of the car’s appearance. The expert installation ensures a flawless finish that adds to the vehicle’s style while offering practical benefits.
The Premium Detailing service at Elite Auto Care is a comprehensive treatment that uses advanced techniques and high-quality products to ensure a deep and thorough clean. This service pays extra attention to every part of the vehicle, ensuring even the most overlooked areas are impeccably clean. It’s tailored to the specific needs of the vehicle, considering its condition and the owner’s preferences, aiming to restore and enhance the overall appearance and feel of the car.
Our full car detailing service includes exterior washing, drying, claying, wheel and tire cleaning, interior vacuuming, wiping down surfaces, shampooing carpets, cleaning seats, and glass cleaning, both inside and out.
In their detailing process, We apply ceramic sealants no waxing as a crucial step. They select the appropriate product based on the vehicle’s needs and apply it evenly across the surface for a consistent finish. This application enhances the vehicle’s protection against environmental elements and minor scratches, and improves its shine, making it look more vibrant and new. The layer also helps keep the car cleaner for longer periods.
We use safe cleaners and microfiber towels to gently wipe down plastics and leather. Brushes are used to remove dust from hard-to-reach areas, and we take special care to avoid scratching interior surfaces.
