our story


Direct Detailing was founded by a senior rugby player at the James Bay Athletic Association with the goal of employing local athletes who move to Victoria in order to pursue their rugby careers.
Since 2018 we have grown from a two person operation to a company with four mobile crews and 10 employees. Nearly all of our employees play rugby in the BCRU, MLR, or for Rugby Canada.
Victoria is the centralized location for Rugby Canada, so we see many players coming to town who need supplimental work while they develop their rugby careers.
We currently employ players from the James Bay Athletic Association, Casaway Wanderers RFC, Westshore RFC, Toronto Aarow, Dallas Jackals, Canadian National Sevens Team, and the Pacific Pride Rugby Canada Development Team.
