SiRamik

Envy Valeting

CSP Nano Particle Protection System

Autosmart

Gyeon

Meguiars

Gtechniq

In some instances we may offer a discount if you choose multiple additional options.

Nano Alloy Sealant – £40

Nano coating that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint on a timescale of years rather than months. This is a wet sol-gel delivery technique to lay down a self-organising microfilm of silica and other nano-scale components that chemically bonds to painted surfaces at the molecular level. This glass-like coating not only provides excellent protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, brake dust, road salt and harmful UV radiation for upwards of twelve months at a time, but also partially mimics the self-cleaning properties of Lotus plant leaves in nature (the Lotus Effect).

Wet vacuuming – £35-£55 (for major spillages please call for a price)

We can remove spillage and water marks from interiors. Where things get really tough we also use specialist biological agents that will break down/kill the likes of proteins and bacteria.

Commercial Vehicles

We can cater for all types of commercial vehicle valeting, de-stickering and repair. Call for a quote.

Alloy wheel removal & clean – £40

We can remove all 4 alloys wheels and perform and full and deep cleanse of the front face and rear rim of the alloy. The wheel nuts will then be re-torqued to manufactured recommended settings. A discount is always offered when combining this with a Nanolex application (see above).

Headlight restore – £30 (pair)

Over time the corrosive effects of the elements can leave your headlights looking cloudy. We can remove (or greatly reduce) this corrosion and bring your lights back into an effective operating state. Aside from looking aesthetically poor this can also be an MOT failure.

Engine Bay Detail – £30

Plastics‎ are removed and cleaned. A specialist cleaner is used in the bay itself before the it is dressed with trim restorer. Steam cleaning can be introduced into this process but wherever possible this is avoided.

Scratch removal (individual) – approx £25 depending on severity

Individual scratches can be removed using a variety of polishing, wet sanding and ‘softening’ techniques. Paint depth gauges are always used to ensure that we are working within safe limits of the paint.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

It is important to understand that our services are not your average ‘hand car wash’ or indeed your average ‘valeting service’. We use the best products via tried and trusted suppliers. We operate with a small volume, high quality ethos to ensure that your vehicle is given the treatment it deserves and that you have paid for.

It is often difficult to explain why there is such a difference between having your car washed and having it detailed or valeted. Essentially it comes down to the following factors;

Technique;

We often find ourselves rectifying damage caused by the cumulative effect of poor washing techniques. We invest thousands into training courses which not only ensure that we use the best techniques to keep your vehicle looking its best or to remediate damage but also gives us access to industry ‘locked’ products by becoming ‘approved’ by the manufacturers.

Knowledge;

We have the knowledge of not only the vehicles we are working on, the paint systems used but also the products and equipment that need to be used to ensure that they work synergistically with one another. For example one product can react with another or that thin paint must be treated with extreme caution.

Equipment;

Unlike the local hand car wash we do not use industrial strength pressure washers designed to blast paint from floors, nor do with bathe your vehicle in hydrochloric brick acid and caustic Traffic Film Remover (TFR). Our products are designed specifically for high end vehicle decontamination, refinement and protection. Speed and volume is not of the essence with ourselves – getting it right is our priority. We use industry recognised equipment such as paint depth gauges, DA and rotary machine polishers, snow foam lances, Cree LED lamps amongst a whole host of other specialised items.

Options;

Our customers have a varied level of knowledge in respect of our industry so we are here to help and advise. You will be presented with options, expectations will be discussed as well as budget. The most expensive option will not always be answer to the requirement and we pride ourselves on honestly and openly advising in terms of what is achievable.

Tried and Tested;

We have several corporate clients as well as many valued repeat customers. Our work is available for all to see. You can be confident that we won’t make false promises and deliver excellence every time.

We are fully insured to pick up and drop off your vehicle to minimise the distruption to your day. Along side our other services this means you can achieve several goals in one visit.
