Car Detailing

WHAT IS DETAILING?

Simply put, over time a vehicles appearance will gradually deteriorate for a variety of reasons. These including environmental factors, poor washing technique (£5 hand car washes cause the majority of issues we see) and accidental damage. Swirls, scratches and other defects combined with bonded contaminants such as tar and tree sap rob the vehicle of its true potential. 

Car detailing looks to turn back the clock and through a combination of techniques, restore the vehicle back to its former glory then protect it for the future with our protective ceramic coatings.

WHAT TO CHOOSE?

We ideally need to view the car in person to be able to fully inspect it and discuss options.

 

We then factor in the current condition of the vehicle and your own preferences with our experience to create an action plan for geting your vehicle looking its best and protected for the future.

 

Briefly there are 2 main component parts to building the bespoke package:

- What is required to restore the vehicle to its former glory (cleaning & polishing)

- What Protection options would you like (paintwork, glass, interior, alloys etc)

 

Additionally, we can take care of any extras (Stone chips, Alloy wheel refurbishment, vinyl wrapping, leather repair etc)

Below is a more indepth look at the options available

Don't worry if you're not sure which option is best for you.

Simply contact us to arrange a free consultation and we can talk you through the various options available.

the process

This handy diagram is our 'Detailing Diamond' and shows the flow of the process involved with having your car Detailed.

We've divided it into 4 parts:

Prepare, Polish, Protect & Maintain

Each stage is as important as the last, firstly to get the vehicle looking the best it ever has and then to maintain that finish for the road ahead.

Within each section, each car will require a different level of care. It's this, combined with your chose protection options that determines the time required and therefore the cost.

Ultimately, Detailing should be seen as the one big reset, an investment in the car and if maintained correctly will provide long term benefits for you to enjoy for many years

Below we go into more depth regarding the polishing and protection options.

 

As always, if in doubt, call us on 0114 327 1771 and we will be glad to help and explain the options.

Two Stage Polish

This service is designed with slightly older vehicles in mind with paintwork in a generally poor condition. Following a thorough paintwork decontamination process, the paintwork initially receives a compounding stage to remove deeper defects (which the single stage above wouldn't be able to remove)

 

Following the compounding stage we polish the entire vehicle again but now with a finer polish and softer pad to refine the paintwork to fully restore exceptional gloss levels. This option really does make a big difference to the vehicle!

Top Tip: Buy a good quality used, not new vehicle and save yourself a small fortune, then have it detailed with us to return it to as new condition. A great looking car and more money in your pocket!

From £549 - Vehicle required for: 3+ Days

Correction 

This service goes even beyond the Two Stage Polish for even greater defect removal for those on a quest for paintwork perfection.

The resulting smooth, defect free surface is then refined using finishing polished for outstanding results. 

We stay on each panel until it's as good as you can get it safely!
