Ultimate Detail Shop moves to new location in New Richmond

Vinny Spataro opened Ultimate Detail Shop on March 1.

Vinny Spataro wants people to know that while the Ultimate Detail Shop's life was short-lived on Knowles Avenue, it hasn't left town.

After having issues at their space on Knowles, Spataro decided to move his new detailing business to a larger space at 1037 North Dakota Ave. on March 1.

"It's not the best location, but it's about three times the size as our other building," Spataro said.

Spataro, a Florida native who grew up around cars, has been detailing vehicles since he was about 8 years old.

"My dad had a car dealership in Florida, so I've been detailing for a long, long time," he said.

After moving to Hammond a few years ago and working as the head of the detailing department at a local dealership, Spataro said he realized that there were no other detailing businesses in New Richmond.

"I could've opened in Hudson, but there are no other shops here. I'm the one and only," he said.

Spataro said that, coupled with the reputation he's started to build in New Richmond, made the decision easy.

"This is something I really enjoy doing," he said. "Seeing the customer's reaction when they see their cars after, that's why I do it. Sure, the money is good too, but it's more about the niche than the money."

Spataro said he's seen some pretty dirty cars in his 20 years of detailing. He also details boats, recreational vehicles, airplanes, etc.

"What people need to know is that I know the tricks of the trade," he said. "Everything comes out. Everything. It just takes a little time sometimes."

The quality of his detail service is something Spataro prides himself on.

"Other shops are about quantity," he said. "They want to get as many cars in there as they can. Here it's more about quality."

The Ultimate Detail Shop is fully licensed and insured. Their business hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
