Pit Stop Detail: When Details Count, Experience Counts

Experience is the difference at Marcus Morton’s Pit Stop Detail.

“The industry is full of ‘detailers,’ but Pit Stop has proven to provide a quality service to Arizona for over 15 years with a professional approach and continuous education for chemicals, tools and techniques in the industry,” says Morton, a Gilbert resident who started the company in 2007 with a mobile truck.

He opened the first store in Scottsdale in 2009 and the Gilbert location seven years later. He and his crew of 16 now have three mobile trucks that service the Valley for car washing and detailing. Both locations offer detailing services for the vehicle interiors and exteriors. These include paint correction, ceramic coatings, clear bra, automotive storage and premium hand washing.


After moving to Arizona from native Washington State, he started the business as a side gig with $10,000 from savings while working as a store manager for Starbucks. After a few years, he decided to make detailing full time and resigned from Starbucks.

Morton has always had a passion for cars. While in high school, his closest friends worked at a detail shop in Puyallup, Washington, where he first learned about detailing. “Since then, it’s been something I have always enjoyed doing,” he says.

He also enjoys time with his family and friends, cooking, traveling and scenic drives. “A little known fact,” he notes: “I was the first Starbucks partner (employee) to have entered into a latte art contest at a coffee fest in Seattle back in 2005. Coffee and cars are meaningful to me, as they have been the two areas of my professional careers this far in life. I still love both!”


What’s the Pit Stop Detail difference?

“There are a lot of great companies as well as individuals who provide services in the same niche as us,” Morton explains. “We set ourselves apart by offering a reliable and professional mobile fleet, advanced training with the ‘perfect paint polishing’ system we developed within our organization and top-notch service to clients.”

In addition, “Our mobile fleet is fully self-contained with our spot-free water, power, premium chemicals, and industrial-grade equipment to tackle any job at home, work, golf courses, race tracks and more,” he says.


And, “No one offers an unlimited car wash service like we do. With our unlimited wash membership, we allow clients to utilize our mobile service weekly as a benefit. It’s a premium service and starts at $99.95. We have had huge success with this membership offering. We know people are busy, and our solution is to bring the wash to them with one monthly payment.”

Customers Valleywide have been delighted. Austin Parise writes: “Exceptional service and detail on my ceramic-coated truck. After my first visit, I signed up for their monthly membership plan, which is very reasonably priced.”

And Betsy Steele: “We’ve used Pit Stop for about a year now and have been very happy. The guys are extremely thorough and do a fantastic job! We choose the mobile detailing, and they come to our home. No more waiting at a car wash place, and they definitely do a MUCH better job than the three large-scale car wash companies we’ve been to in the north Scottsdale area. They are also very competitive in pricing! Highly recommend.”
