About The Staff

Darren McKendry has been passionate about cleaning, polishing and preserving automobiles for 37 years. "This has been my one and only source of income since I was 13 years old. I have been told this is rare, but when you love what you do why change? I have shown and won with my own automobiles in many concourse events and have helped hundreds to accomplish the same. Every day holds a new adventure at Doctor Detail and I continue to love it”.
