Auto Detailing Spotlight on VIP Mobile Detailing - Reno, NV


VIP Mobile Detailing - Reno, NV.

We would like to introduce you to Pete Santenello from VIP Mobile Detailing in Reno, NV.

I first met Pete several years ago at an industry event and was immediately inspired by his outlook on business and life. Pete not only operates a successful business but he also realizes the importance to strike a balance between business and the rest of his life.

His travels around the world are sure to see his travel blog (Link is below).

More about Pete and VIP Mobile Detailing:

VIP Mobile Detailing is a self started locally owned business that has been in operation for nine years. During this time, owner Pete Santenello has attended different detailing training programs around the country, first to learn the best techniques and equipment for the job and later to keep up on detailing product in a constantly changing industry.

It is paramount that the customer is very satisfied with our detailing, therefore all of VIP’s work is guaranteed. VIP Mobile Detailing hires only quality employees with strong work ethics that match their honesty.

Proper detail training is extensive and thorough, resulting in a fantastic final product.

Born in Vermont, Pete moved as quickly as possible to the west, seeking sun and adventure. After college in Colorado, Pete moved to Lake Tahoe, CA and took up his passions of snowboarding and cycling. This is when VIP Detailing started.

During his two-year hiatus from VIP from 2002-2004 Pete followed his lifelong dream and did a transcontinental trip around the globe traveling to over fifty counties. During this time he spent a winter in Verbier, Switzerland and also taught English in Bangkok, Thailand.

Pete moved to Reno three years ago and has expanded VIP Mobile Detailing to the extended Reno/Lake Tahoe region. Apart from working on VIP Mobile Detailing Pete is also back at school studying at the University of Nevada and working on a global travel video project.
