The evolution of the detail business began in the late 70’s when the price of motor vehicles began to increase, financing terms lengthen, and ownership went from 3.2 years in 1978 to over 8 years today. Before then, detailing was a service done by or for the auto dealers. Today it has evolved into a legitimate retail business that is known as car detailing, auto detailing, and auto reconditioning. People are concerned with protecting their leisure time and are willing to have others perform needed car appearance services for them.
