Who is the Best Auto Detailer in Charleston SC?

I need to find a professional auto detailer in Charleston. My primary concern is clay bar, polish, sealant, and wax for the body of a Toyota Camry. Someone washed it multiple times with Dawn and its dull as can be.

Thanks for your advice and sharing your experience.

Merry Christmas.

I dont have any experience doing such. I dont have an random orbit power buffer. And I dont have the expensive chemicals.

This is for somebody else as a Christmas gift(not from me). I am supposed to find a good detailer.....not practice my virgin polishing and buffing skills on someone elses vehicle.

wish i was still down there, i would help you out. I wont be back for another month or 2 at the earliest though =/ ehh, charleston is really bad for detailers though, there is a place heading out to isle of palms when you go over the bridge from downtown to mt pleasant stay in the right and right after where wild wings is and stuff theres a guy tucked back away on the right, who does decent polishing and stuff. But, charleston is lacking on detailers =/. If you go on carolinaeuros.com there some people a couple hours away that make it down to charleston every now and then and will detail.
