What’s the difference in Sedan versus Not Sedan?
To simplify and streamline Spiffy’s scheduling process, we’ve categorized vehicles in two distinct classifications: Sedan and Not Sedan.
Sedan: Think small. Typically, 4 doors or less and 2 rows of seats or less, with a separated, enclosed trunk area. For example, sedans, coupes, and convertibles. Exceptions? Small hatchbacks.
Not Sedan: Think large. Typically, 4 doors or more (rear hatches count) and 2 rows of seats or more, with an open trunk area. For example, minivans, pickup trucks, crossovers, station wagons, and SUVs.
What is Spiffy’s weather policy?
In the event of inclement weather, such as sub-freezing temperatures, severe storms, excessive wind, rain, sleet, or hail, Spiffy will continue services in covered areas e.g. garages, parking decks,
If no covered areas are available, the technicians will assess the current climate, and if necessary, our scheduling team will work with you to find a more convenient time to schedule your service.
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 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.”
Web Users: Promo codes can be added in our web portal after the appointment has been scheduled by clicking into the appointment, and selecting the green “Add Promo Code” button. It can also be added after the service
Does Spiffy keep a percentage of Technician tips?

What brand of products does Spiffy use most often?
Spiffy partners with Simoniz® for our cleaning and detailing products. Simoniz is the worldwide industry leader in car appearance chemicals. Additionally, all of our technicians are Simoniz Certified experts in car washing and detailing.
Why are we now charging for trim/running boards?
We upgraded our product from a temporary water-based protectant that washed off after the first rain to a specially formulated plastic trim restoration which we now guarantee for 3 months.
Are there any services you do not warranty?
We do not warranty the Spiffy engine clean upgrade. This service uses high-pressure hot water, steam, and degreasing chemicals that can uncover pre-existing electrical issues. If you suspect engine trouble, please do not book this service.

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.
