Where do you buy your detailing products?

First off, I want to thank YOU for participating in this amazing forum segment (Detail Department of the Fest). I love the passion and information found here. Thank you!

I am slowly getting in the hobby of detailing. I often get many products from Amazon. I am guilty of being a typical internet shopper where I look for the best price and free shipping.

I know there are many options out there; however, I want to know where other's get their detailing products from.

I typically buy from Detailers Domain, Phil is very helpful after the purchase. Good to see other options as well.

The prices and the Detailers Domain site is great; however, shipping costs negates any savings

autogeek and detailersdomain

I would go 100% detailersdomain but there are a few things I've grown fond of that only autogeek carries. But then again, the nice thing about detailersdomain is they don't carry everything under the sun, they only carry good products. 99.99% chance if you buy something from detailersdomain it's going to work well.

Have you looked at buying in larger bottles quarts to gallons?

Phil at detailers domain is the man! As a pro an order under $150 is small, so flat rate shipping under $10 is very nice.

Right now we are offering out $8.88 flat shipping on orders over $50 and free shipping on orders over $150 as well as 10% off using BMW at checkout.

We are providing you all with our direct price on shipping or the shipping offer above. Not much we can do about it, we still have our other costs like the box, the tape and good packaging material.

We are by no ways Amazon or the big box stores.

We try to make that up by sponsoring forums and being there for you all the time at all hours.

I'm pretty sure at the moment you can't call Amazon and ask them how to polish down a car etc, maybe that's still worth it to some.

Customer service is just about nonexistent in most industries now, I hope to change that a bit at least in this sector.

My go to place is detailing.com. I went to a couple of Saturday classes at the Meguiars corporate offices and discovered detailing.com is just down the highway. Their prices and product lines are good, but not better than detailers domain or other top tier "click & order" suppliers. In most cases having to pay California sales tax is more costly than out of state shipping charges. There is still something of the touch and smell factor going in favor of a brick & mortar for new products, which could be offset somewhat by only supplies sending out more small size samples of new products.

By far, I prefer Detailed Image. Professional grade products, excellent blogs and articles for detailing techniques and product reviews.
