Here is the transcript of the article:

"When Lindsay Quick & Piotr Sztorc first opened YXE Quick Clean last summer, the focus was on detailing fleet vehicles — until more and more people stopped in to ask if they could drop off their personal vehicles. They decided to switch it up.

After having her own car detailed and finding expensive prices and a long, inconvenient wait, Quick decided to do things differently. She set a goal to offer all her clients affordable, convenient and professional service.

“I’ve had my vehicle detailed in Saskatoon before and it was hundreds of dollars … and I was without my car for a day,” Quick said. “I just thought this was not OK, in no way is this convenient for my busy life and I’m not the only person who’s busy — there are people way busier than me.”

Each car at her shop has a turnaround time of two hours, so customers are not left stranded without a vehicle for an entire day. There are two different drop-off locations — the year-round shop on Cynthia Street and a seasonal location at the Willows — as well as a mobile service that comes directly to clients.

Quick offers a variety of cleaning options for the interiors and exteriors — everything from pet hair removal to UV protection for vinyl and leather. All forms of payment are accepted, including gift cards.

“It’s super reasonable and that’s the idea,” Quick says. “We also offer gift cards and those are especially popular around Mother’s Day and Father’s Day … it’s a super hit. Even for my own father, he has everything and if he wants something he will buy it for himself, but a vehicle detail, it’s a service and I know he is going to enjoy that service for weeks.”
