About The Detail Man

My name is Tony Hopcraft. Born and raised in Orlando Florida,I came from Orlando to St Augustine in 1987.I stumbled into Auto detailing and it became a passion.I took the time to understand anything and everything about Reconditioning auto,boat,motorcycles and planes.Well thirty years later here I am. But another passion came and that was helping foster kids.

So about 15 years ago my phone rang.Are you hiring ? The voice on the the other end said. I said no, because I was always a one man show.


Then I asked," where did you get my phone number?"

He said out of the phone book.( I did not have a website then)

That impressed me so I met my first young man who was from the foster care program and there it began.

I began training them and they caught on

Detailing was a natural for these young people.Many times, in dead end jobs because of minimal opportunities,auto and yacht detailing is a natural for these people.

I had made a great living so i began mentoring them,and those who caught on are the next generation for the Detail Man In St Augustine.
