Detailed Image is run by its owners and we strive to operate the business with uncompromising integrity and honesty. We shop online for ourselves and we like to treat our customers the same way we like to be treated while shopping online. While shopping with us our goal is to provide you with the highest quality products to meet and exceed your detailing goals at a great value.
We hand pick each product on our site from manufacturers around the world. We are not affiliated with particular manufacturers so we take great pride in helping you find the products that work best for your particular needs without bias. Regardless of your budget, detailing goals, or time restrictions we have the products to help you clean, shine and protect virtually every surface on your vehicle.
In combination with right products we have the detailing experience to help you learn the proper techniques involved with high quality detailing. Our Detailing Guide and Ask A Pro blog provide detailed instructions for each step in the process. We are also here to help you with any questions you may have about how to do any step in the process with advice tailored to your needs.
When you make a purchase with us you are not just purchasing awesome detailing supplies, you are supporting a company that truly cares about its employees and its community! We believe great employees build great companies so we take pride in our team and our teamwork. To build a great team not only do we work hard together but outside of work we enjoy fun team activities like playing sports, going to baseball games, going on hikes, watching movies, and regularly eating together. Our full time employees have their entire health insurance premiums covered by us so they can be happy and healthy at work and outside of it, along with a matching contribution to a retirement fund. If our hourly employees work enough hours over a period of time they get their entire health insurance premiums paid for by us, matching contributions to a retirement plan and paid time off. In our community we have done volunteer work at local colleges, coached youth sports, participated in charitable work, and more.
We are proud of what we have accomplished and there is a lot more we can do with your continued support, so thank you!!!
Detailed Image was founded in 2004. The business started out of home with very humble beginnings and a lot of "sweat equity". It began growing very fast and it quickly became a full time job. We initially did both a professional detailing service and operated our online store, but we later sold the service side of the business to focus exclusively on e-commerce.
In 2007 we formed Pure Adapt Inc to be a parent company to Detailed Image and our other ventures.
In 2008 we moved the business to a 5,300 sq ft warehouse in Guilderland, NY to accommodate our growing inventory. We're continually improving upon the efficiency of our warehouse operations to ensure that every order is shipped quickly, accurately, and safely.
In 2009 we began our Going Green Program, where we made many changes to our business to be more environmentally friendly. We now use biodegradable peanuts made from cornstarch, print all invoices using 100% recycled paper, and we recycle cardboard, plastic bags, bottles, cans, paper and more. We also partner with members of freecycle.org to recycle pallets, packing materials and more.
In 2010 we launched our Ask A Pro Blog, a community of some of the best detailers in the US who write about their top quality detail work, how to guides, product reviews and much more. This rare collection of in-depth articles can quickly help a novice detailer get outstanding results.
In 2013 we launched our redesigned website to provide you with a superior shopping experience. The site now looks better and functions more efficiently, whether you're on your computer, phone, or tablet, saving you time and money.
In 2016 we expanded and upgraded our warehouse. Our new facility is approximately 10,000 sq ft and includes a new office, conference room, break room, more space for inventory, and an improved workflow that is helping us ship your orders even faster.
In 2017 we began offering qualified hourly employees matching contributions to retirement plans, 100% coverage of health insurance premiums, and paid time off.
In 2019 we again expanded and upgraded our warehouse to accommodate our expanding product selection. Our total space is now over 16,000 sq ft!
From 2015-2019 Pure Adapt was named to the Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in America! According to Inc., only 4% of companies make the list five times. We were also named to the Albany Business Review's list of the Fastest-Growing Companies in the Albany area from 2016-2019. In addition, the Albany Business Review named us one of the Best Places to Work in the Albany area!
