Team at Loki Auto gears up for busy season
Krisztian Balogh and his wife Szilvia have owned and operated Loki Auto Cosmetics for the last four years. Szilvia runs the office, while Krisztian uses his many years of experience in car restoration to do meticulous detail jobs. “This is my passion,” says Balogh. “I know how to take care of cars.”
Krisztian’s standards are exacting, and one car generally takes up to five hours to complete. “We do a full exterior hand wash, paint protection, carpet vacuuming, and steam clean.” Krisztian says that the power of steam is a great alternative to harsh chemicals. “We try to be as green as possible,” he explains. Other services include laser-cut window tinting with a lifetime guarantee, leather conditioning, and chip repair. “I give you a new car back,” Krisztian says.
The shop has five different detail packages, ranging in price and starting at $60. “We work with you for your budget,” says Krisztian. “We have something for everybody.” Spring is the busiest time for the shop, as car owners look to clean up winter wear and tear. It’s also the season that Krisztian begins bringing in seasonal staff to help keep up with demand. His wife is currently on leave to look after their one-and-a-half year old son, making it even busier at the shop. Krisztian doesn’t mind; he’s happy to be doing work that he loves. As he says, “It is your car. It does matter how it feels. Why not feel better?”
