Leawood, KS (PressExposure) March 16, 2011 -- KC Detailing is a relatively new car detailing business in the Kansas City area. Started in 2009 under the name 1st Choice Detailing, the company has grown from one guy with a hose and a bucket to being one of Kansas City's top detailing companies with multiple employees. Though Tim Dodd, the owner of KC Detailing, started his business in 2009, he says that he and everyone he has hired have been car people since their first Hot Wheels toy when they were one. In fact, everyone on the team has a major passion for cars and detailing. Alex Minyakov says "This is not just about a paycheck for us. This is our passion and hobby. We love what we do."
Tim contributes his quick success to his values by saying "Most companies have their value system backwards. Most of the car detailing business are primarily concerned about their profits, secondarily concerned about their customers, and lastly concerned about their employees." He goes on to say. "At KC Detailing, we primarily value our employees, secondarily our customers, and lastly our profits. We know that if we take care of our employees our employees will take care of our customers and if we take care of our customers, well you know were that leads."
The community is also very important to the team at KC Detailing. They have a vision to sow into a lot of non-profit organizations around the Kansas City area. One of the non-profit organizations that is currently being supported is the Zoe Foundation, which helps connect kids from foster care and human traffic to good adoption parents. Heaven Sound Music is another one of the organizations that the company has decided to support. Heaven Sound Music has a heart to create a positive dance culture that will give youth and young adults in Kansas City positive alternatives to events that promote getting drunk and using drugs. Tim explains that "We feel that if we are willing to sow into the community, the community will be willing to sow into us. It really is a beautiful thing." This year they will be helping run car washes at fund raising events. Make sure to get ahold of them if you are interested in having them bring a car wash to your next event. It is refreshing to see a company that has a desire to help out the community by reaching out in very tangible ways.
But beyond their good values and desire to have a positive impact on the community, they are amazing at car detailing. From Hondas and orange Escalades to Ferraris and Lamborghinis, the crew does it all. Although the average detail they perform runs from $250 to $500, some of their customers pay in the thousands to get their cars detailed. Who knew? Most people thought that car detailing was simply washing the outside, spraying some tire shine on the tires, and doing a quick wipe down on the inside. The truth is, the team here can take a new car and make it look better than when it first rolled out of the dealership. Just imagine the change they can make on your used car. Tim says that "We start were the car makers, dealerships, and body shops stop. Even a new car is dirty and beat up to us." You have to see some of the pictures on their website to believe this.
These guys are top notch and it is really refreshing to see a company that desires to sow into their community.
