Redwood Auto detailing is about finding a balance between what is best for your car, what is best for your wallet and what is best for our health and our environment. I can assure you it is no easy feat and everybody’s views differ. So, with that, I have put together a range of services that will cater for customer who just likes their car to be kept neat and tidy, for people whose cars may need a little extra TLC and for customs who (like me) like to have their vehicles in peak condition. I hope you find this service useful. Nau mai, Welcome to Redwood Auto Detailing.


My name is Zane Haywood and I own and manage Redwood Auto Detailing. Ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper, I’ve been in love with everything automotive. From kicking around dust in the garage with my old man and going many classic car events to working in odd jobs in a variety of auto trades (including car grooming). I eventually became an apprentice and completed a few trade certificates in Automotive Servicing and Automotive Machining, and I worked as an Engine Reconditioner for many years. As time has moved on and my family grown, I noticed a need for a more informed and practical car care service. So, in 2018 I decided to follow my passion, thus we have Redwood Auto Detailing.


Based in Swanson, I aim to service the West and North Auckland areas. Working from home my workshop is the ideal place for detailing vehicles. The shop is fully equipped for all manner of valet and detailing services. It is a secure location with an automated gate and an electronic alarm system. The shop can also be heat and humidity controlled, ideal for the application of sensitive products e.g. polishes, sealants, and ceramic coatings.

We also offer a mobile service. Our shop van is equipped with everything we need to service your vehicle out and about. With onboard water tanks and a state of the art 3.2kw power generator, this mobile service can be fully self-sufficient.
