There are a lot of elements of Jorge Espinosa’s job as an automobile detailer that he likes, but the bottom line and the objective that makes him most proud is the “before and after” picture in his mind’s eye.

Jorge’s Auto Detail shop located at 1085 Gamblin St. in Enumclaw, is where Espinosa, his brother-in-law Jorge Jaramillo and his father-law Jorge Jaramillo Sr. work on cleaning and detailing the interior and exterior of cars, trucks, recreation vehicles, SUV’s and boats. They also steam clean engines and undercarriages.

“We are honest, experienced and for us it is all about making the customer happy,” said Espinosa, who has had extensive training in California, has lived and worked in Enumclaw for 10 years and is licensed with the state of Washington.

“We use superior products to clean our customer’s vehicle, and make it clean, shiny and new-looking as if it were our own,” exclaimed Espinosa, who added that no job is too big or too small and his shop processes an average of five to 10 vehicles a day.

Jorge’s Auto Detail has a plethora of car cleaning options available to its customers, with a wide range of affordable plans; from a simple cleaning of the exterior to the full detail job inside and out. Customers can call for an appointment and the shop is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The shop is open on the weekend, but only by appointment.
