JR’s Auto Detailing

JR’s was conceived during quarantine. My wife Lisa, who owns The Sanctuary Spa on Hilton Head Island, and my good friend Mike Hailey, who has his own construction business, encouraged me to start this business because I love detailing cars and I’m really good at it! That led to my working on trucks and boats and soon, RVs. Having just purchased our first travel trailer and being extremely picky about detailing work, that will now be part of our menu.

As a former Marine and a lead tech at Gulfstream Aerospace, attention to detail, efficiency and perfection are part of the job, and that is why JR’s is taking off so quickly. We come to your home and can literally make your car look and smell like new. We offer a treatment that will remove all the impurities on your vehicle’s paint surface, so when we wax and polish it, it will stay cleaner longer, even after heavy rain. We treat the interior with UV protection and obviously leave it sanitized. I have taken vehicles that look like they were abandoned and left them looking like new; that is partly why I love detailing vehicles so much.

Having seven kids between us, we love for them to see their parents owning their own businesses and loving what they do. We want them to see that working hard will allow you to go after your dreams.

I came from Puerto Rico and moved to Hilton Head Island 11 years ago. My wife has been constantly supportive and encouraging in the 10 years we’ve been together, and I’m so proud to not only work for a great company, but to now own a business that brings so much satisfaction to me and to my customers.

We are growing quickly and will be adding powder coating services in the near future. We would love the chance to work on your vehicle, no matter what shape it’s in.
