I have lived in the Southern Highlands of NSW all my life.  I went to school at Exeter primary before continuing my secondary education at Oxley College in Bowral. 

From the outset, after leaving school, I knew working with cars was where my heart lay, although my business didn’t start the moment I left school.  I worked in the automotive panel and dealer spheres whilst pursuing my hobby detailing cars.  In 2006, after demand reached beyond friends and family, Detailed by Ben was born.

Over the years my business has evolved and changed, but one thing has always stayed consistent – providing for the car guys and enthusiasts and offering a thorough hands-on service.

I am still very much a local and still reside in Exeter with my lovely wife and two sons.


Being an automotive enthusiast and fanatic, Ben understands what it means to own a special vehicle.  You only want the best and you want to know your pride and joy is in safe hands.  My business centres around the needs and wants of the automotive enthusiast and connoisseur, providing bespoke in-depth detailing and restoration services for all marques and their respective models.
