NEWINGTON - At Skibo Services on 63 Stoddard Ave., Brian Skibo is helping local residents and others throughout New England have their vehicles looking like new.

Skibo, an auto detailing business, has been cleaning up and protecting vehicles for more than 30 years, and continues to improve its service with new products that help keep cars, trucks, RVs, boats and even small planes at a showroom shine.

One of the highlights at Skibo is the highly protective Ceramic Coating, which protects against most scratches, dirt, chemical contaminants, oxidation and more. The product, which last for up to four years, can cost as much as $1,000, but Skibo offers the service and application for $650 (which includes a full car detail), and is one of a number of new products and services that the company began offering in April of last year.

In addition to Ceramic Coating, Skibo offers compounding, polishing and waxing for the exterior of cars and other large vehicles, while also offering interior services like shampoo cleaning of carpets and engine cleaning.

Skibo, long interested in auto shows and what went in to keeping cars looking flashy and new, is well-respected by his customers, who have raved about the service they receive when they come to visit him.

“Brian’s work can be summed up in three words: Professional, personal, perfection,” said Edward Tracey.

Tracey is far from the only customer to share their good experience of taking a vehicle to Skibo.

“Meticulous, take great personal pride in his work,” said Steve Wilson, who has hired Skibo to detail vehicles multiple times. “You can’t go wrong with Brian!”

Customers looking for various types of detailing packages can find it at Skibo. Complete interior and exterior details are offered, as are exterior and interior only packages. Exterior details include a hand wash, buff and wax, in addition to door jam service. Interior details include stain removal, shampooing and door jams. Complete detail packages are offered for motorcycles as well.

Skibo Services is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 860-666-0773 or visit
