The Origins of Our Mobile Car Detailing Company

OCD owner Dustin Wharton has been detailing cars for many years, and his career has taken him from Colorado to Utah to San Diego. Along the way, he worked for a handful of detailing shops and got certified training in Detail and Paint Correction through BMW North America. 

So what led to the start of Official California Detailing? After moving to San Diego, Dustin ended up with an opportunity he couldn’t pass up — purchasing Big D’s Mobile from Dann Williams, rather than working as Dann’s employee. “So instead of becoming an employee of his, he offered me an opportunity that I couldn’t resist. He sold me his mobile detailing business that had been open in town for 13 years. Upon getting approved for the business loan 3 weeks after moving to San Diego I was able to purchase that business,” says Dustin. That was over four years ago, and OCD has continued to grow, offering more car detailing services along the way.
