Our Company History


Ever since Owner Ross Timyan founded Crystal Clean Auto Detailing in 2006 as a mobile detailing operation, the organization has been thriving with entrepreneurial ambition. Both the word-of-mouth and marketing efforts have allowed the company to grow its operations to that of over 30 auto dealerships, thousands of retail customers, body shop accounts and an exclusive partnership with the Standard Parking Corporation and the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.


When the growth became more apparent in 2008, Crystal Clean Auto Detailing made the transition into its first stand-a-lone location off of 28th street with 2 detailing bays and less than 10 employees, one of which being a new addition Chad Cornell who was named the Most Valuable Carwasher in 2011 by Professional Car Washing and Detailing Magazine. Quickly thereafter, in 2009, the company moved into a larger facility off of Broadmoor in Grand Rapids, MI order to accommodate the additional detailing business. The “Vehicle Photography Studio” re-marketing concept was founded at this location and represented a breakthrough with the dealer customers – placing used cars into a studio-like environment, versus the crowded and sometimes weather-affected setting of a car lot, where such photos often are normally taken. The benefits of this competitive advantage from one dealer to the next sparked a generous amount of interest in what Crystal Clean had to offer.


It’s no surprise that with Ross Timyan’s aspirations for setting the new standard within the automotive detailing and reconditioning industry, the company set its sights on a 35,000 Sq. Ft. facility on Eastern Ave in 2010. The risk was certain, but the vision of newly implemented technology standards for digital estimates and online requests via a mobile iOS application, the ‘Mid-Nite Transfer’ pickup and dropoff service, and an improved Vehicle Photography Studio, CCAD was well on its way for promising growth potential. In addition to the detailing facility, the business model expanded its traditional services by leasing a 60,000 sq. ft. former Steelcase “Employee Sales Building” off of 36th st and starting an Indoor Heated Storage business for cars, boats, RV’s and other vehicles.


In 2012, Crystal Clean Auto Detailing, LLC began employing more than 40 people and has since been able to facilitate the detailing and photography for roughly 75 cars given a 24-hour turn-a-round time.

Recent Testimonials

  • The only thing that surprised me more than the excellent work Crystal Clean Auto Detailing performed on my car was the friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly (IMO), passionate staff members. It is obvious that this company has a sense of pride in the work they do and it shows in the end result. The car actually looked better when I picked it up from CC compared to when I purchased it from the dealer.

    I had the pleasure of dealing with Steve L throughout the entire process and it was like no other experience I have had in the past while having a car detailed. I am already in the process of scheduling two other vehicles to be detailed.

  • I was cautious of getting my car detailed at first thinking i could do a good job from home, I was wrong. These guys did an excellent job and my car was returned looking like new. If you have a chance go in and see the operation, it’s top notch. Crystal Clean Auto Detailing is definitely an asset to our area for anyone who wants superior care and service. Thanks again. Plan on bringing in my hummer with the ufo engine for a detail soon.

  • I first found out about Crystal Clean Auto Detailing from my father-in-law as we were both looking for a place to store vehicles for the winter. From the beginning, coordinating the storage, accessing my vehicle in the winter, and arranging for some restoration services, the staff at Crystal Clean exceeded expectations. The work performed on my vehicle was also very impressive. I wanted to maintain the stock look on my rims after all of them had curb rash and I had heard some horror stories by those who have had work done in the past. Not here though, the rims look fantastic! The paint restoration work made the car look brand new. Fantastic work to match customer service means this will certainly result in repeat business from me.

  • After a year filled with trips that included kids and the family dog, my SUV was looking pretty bad inside. Between the dog hair and french fries that the kids had dropped between the seats, I was sure there was no hope. I found an advertisement for Crystal Clean Auto Detailing and thought I would give it a try. The service was wonderful and my SUV looks like new inside! Amazing! If you think your car is beyond repair, give Crystal Clean a try…you will be glad you did!

  • We were considering having our Denali detailed anyway when I stopped into Vandenberg Jewelers in Cascade. Crystal Clean’s card was laying on their counter. I was talking to one of the owners about our upcoming trip, and how it was getting expensive to leave your vehicle at the airport. He grabbed the card and handed it to me. When I arrived home and told my husband about Crystal Clean’s airport pick-up and drop-off service along with the detailing, he said find out more, so I did.

    We went ahead with the detailing and the airport service and were very pleased with the result. They were very courteous and did an excellent job on our Denali. We will definitely recommend them to others, and use them again when the need arises.

    Thanks Guys!!
