Why can’t I book my Spiffy appointment today?
It’s our goal to schedule your Spiffy appointment for the preferred date and time that you request. However, if we are unable to book your appointment for a specific day, then there are a few reasons why:
- Our Spiffy technicians are fully booked for the day and can’t fit your appointment in.
- The location you’re booking from is a part of our “Spiffy Partner Pricing” program and our technicians only come to you on a specific day each week.
- The date you chose is a holiday.
How do I know my appointment is confirmed?
Spiffy will send you an email, text or in-app message depending on your preferences when your appointment is confirmed. Your Technician will arrive within a 30-minute window of your appointment time and your appointment should be completed by the promised end time. If something unexpected comes up that will slow the Technician down (oh no, this car is covered in fill in the blank), we will let you know the impact on your service timing and cost.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
Once an appointment is confirmed, you can cancel at no charge up to 24 hours prior to your scheduled service time. If you cancel a residential appointment within 24 hours of the scheduled start, Spiffy may apply a $15 cancellation fee to cover the costs of rerouting our Technicians. We will never charge a fee for weather-related cancellations.
How do I get you my keys?
Spiffy is offered as an amenity at hundreds of office parks, apartment complexes, and parking decks. If your location offers Spiffy as an amenity, feel free to give us a call, or ask your property management team about Spiffy’s key process at your location.
If you are receiving an at-home service, our technicians will contact you upon arrival to retrieve your keys.
Can I request a specific technician?
For best scheduling availability, we don’t recommend requesting a specific technician. Spiffy’s scheduling process is designed as a “first come, first serve” system. Services that come in are equally distributed to technicians based on location, time, length of service, and availability. As a result, we do not accept these requests, in order to provide all of our customers with the best availability.
How do I pay?
Once your service has been completed, you will receive an email, text or in-app notification depending on your preferences to “Rate & Pay” for your service. You can then log in to your Spiffy mobile app or Spiffy website to provide feedback about your service, submit payment, and provide an electronic gratuity for your technician.
Spiffy accepts eGift Cards, Apple Pay, and all major debit/credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. For your convenience and the safety of our technicians, Spiffy specializes in cashless transactions. We do not accept cash payment nor do we carry cash onboard our vans.
Why is there a charge on my credit card before my service?
Don’t worry. It’s not a charge. We never charge your card until we do the work and give you 48 hours to rate and pay.
We do place a hold (or pre-authorization) on the funds 48 hours before your appointment, which you may see on your account as an “authorization” or a “hold.”
If you cancel your appointment, we release the funds immediately, but it might take a couple of days for your bank to clear the hold.
Where do I enter my promo code?
iPhone/Android Users: When scheduling your Spiffy service, you will be prompted for a promo code after selecting your date and time. Select "Have a promo code? Tap here." You can enter promo codes on that screen, as well as after the service is completed and you are prompted to “Rate and Pay.”

Spiffy Oil FAQ

Spiffy uses Mobil™ branded motor oils for all consumer oil changes.

What is the difference between synthetic oil and conventional oil?
As per the Mobil™ website, “Synthetic oil is not only refined but also distilled, purified and broken down into its basic molecules. This process not only removes more impurities from the crude oil but also enables individual molecules in the oil to be tailored to the demands of modern engines. These customized molecules provide higher levels of protection and performance than conventional oils.” Simply put, synthetic oils provide higher levels of protection and performance, which usually enables longer oil change intervals compared to using conventional motor oil.
