Things Automotive Detailing
stressful starting this while I was working 9 to 5 in Belleville.
It’s fantastic now I’m fulltime here. Different kind of stress! But
it’s all my own and I can deal with it the way I like to, by working
hard and getting things done. We made a point of doing things in the
right order, making sure we were ready before we made too much noise
about our business. We pride ourselves on doing things right,
being upfront and having really high standards. That’s why we
called it Finer Things."
