FAQs

Answering your questions and providing additional information.

The ceramic coating we use is Pyramid Car Care. Different manufacturers have varied requirements. The ceramic coating/nano particles are microscopic. In simple terms, the coating is applied to the car using a carrier liquid (the stuff you actually see in the bottle). Most coatings use a water based formula, our coating is solvent based – which dries much, much faster allowing the chemical reaction with the paint to begin almost immediately. The coating can face the elements and get wet in just a few hours after application. 

The photographs and the reviews of our service should give you some confidence – but many do ask why we can offer car detailing services at such low costs. There are quite a lot of reasons, here are a few… – We’re happy with the income made made. We don’t feel the need to charge more, we are known for fair pricing.

The focus on the paint work. We don’t remove badges or wheels or clean inside wheel arches/suspension parts (a job that is thankless since it gets dirty again as soon as you drive). So that saves time. –

We employ (when required) staff that help wash & de-contaminate cars – freeing up time to focus on detailing, allowing more cars to completed. – The coatings used cure fast and don’t need to store them inside for days- meaning lower rent rates our premises – and more work can be brought in. – we don’t do interior valets, saving us time and saving you money

No, we pay our tax and VAT collected accurately and in full. Paying with cash wouldn’t make our prices lower. We don’t handle cash at the business at all. All deposits and card payments taken by machine at our premises are processed through one system, which is then connected to accounting software. Taking payments like this saves us time and therefore, saves you money.

No. we don’t offer such deals because…
– The prices charged are already as low as can be
– Whether it is two cars from the same person or two different customers, the time put aside in the diary, the amount of products used and my overheads remain the same.

Anything fixed by the polishing process is permanent. So, providing the damage doesn’t re-occur, then the shine gained from removing swirl marks and scratches should remain indefinitely.

Yes.Plenty of photographs, but here is one example.
 
 

It is card payment only

The prices show are for all sized cars (SUVs, Estates included) – extra charges apply to campers, pick up trucks, small vans etc

If you would like to make use of our polishing service with specific damage in mind, please get in-touch with images before booking for advice.

Yes. We are insured to work on and drive cars up to a value of £100,000

No. We don’t touch the interior at all. We wash all cars booked in as part of the whole process – but we don’t take bookings to wash cars or valet.

But don’t take our word for it …

I would recommend Ross’ company. Super helpful with the million and one and questions i asked. I went for the 5 yr ceramic coating with windscreen coating. My car was brand new but after Ross worked his magic it seems to have taken the paint work to another level.

Really pleased with the result on my car as it feels and looks new again; I got the platinum package and would definitely recommend this. My car has gone from looking it’s age to literally repelling rain! I got the car from a dealer who had polished it before selling it but in bright light this had left some marks. These marks are all gone now!

100% recommend and would definitely return
