ColorAuto Carwash & Detail offers professional detailing for cars, motorcycles and boats, including polishing and waxing.

“Having a successful detail shop is a dream come true for me,” said Paul Heckman, owner of the business. “I have always been passionate about cars, and I love providing a service that people are happy with.”

Heckman said his first year in business has been a busy one. “Usually, a detail shop will slow down in the winter months, when people expect their cars to be dirtier. We were very fortunate to maintain a steady clientele throughout all four seasons and have consistently grown our business over the last year.”
