Shawn Medina’s compulsion for perfecting automobile exteriors started early and intensified from there. He began restoring cars at the age of 14, studied automotive technology, worked at Ford Motor Company, then turned his passion into a paycheck and founded Next Level Auto Detailing in 2009.

Whether it’s a luxury ride, sports car, classic car or expensive everyday ride, Shawn provides high-end detailing services, paint correction and ceramic coating to protect any finish from rock chips, road debris, road salt and sun fading.

“A lot has changed in the automotive industry and that has impacted my business,” he says. “People are keeping their cars longer today and taking better care of them. Daily drivers can benefit just as much from my services as others, as I can restore their finish and make it last longer. With cars increasing in value, owners don’t mind paying more to protect them.”

To fit clients’ budgets, lifestyle and how long they plan to drive their car, Next Level Auto Detailing offers a variety of packages, starting at $99 for an Express Detail, going up to a full detail at $299.

Bringing Back the Finish
Shawn can restore a car to even better than its factory finish with a highly reflective shine.

His specialty is paint correction (machine polishing) and ceramic coating. Tapping into the latest nanotechnology, his clear-film coatings have a protective UV shield to keep the paint looking like it just drove out of the dealership.

Each car requires a specific method of protective coating, and Shawn offers several of the top professional brands, such as Ceramic Pro Paint and SB3.

In addition to coatings, many of his clients opt for regular premium detailing services, which include a gentle hand wash, blow-drying, waxing, tire dressing, and complete cleaning of the interior, from leather seats to windows and carpet.

Auto enthusiasts looking to add more pizzazz to their rides will be glad to hear that Shawn has recently become an authorized dealer for Morimoto Lights. These high-intensity LED headlights, taillights and accent lights make taking the backroads more exciting than ever.

Shawn’s growing clientele likes to hang out at Next Level and bond over their cars, so he decided to encourage that by creating a bona fide man cave.

Booking Now
“Springtime is by far my busiest season, as clients are thrilled to take their sports cars out for rides with the prospect of nicer weather,” says Shawn. “Although March and April can sometimes mean volatile weather, I hope people don’t put off calling to get on my schedule for a free consultation.”

For clients who might be waiting until that perfect 72-degrees-and-sunny day to make an appointment, he recommends not procrastinating.

“Every year people call me in late-May, only to find out that by that time I’m booked through July,” he says. “I will work with people on my schedule and prioritize them to accommodate for the weather if needed. The goal is to get their cars ready to roll.”

And speaking of warmer temps, don’t miss the many Car Cruise-In events that Shawn orchestrates each year, including Nights in the Heights, for the City of Broadview Heights. Check his Facebook page for a listing to be announced soon.
