FAQs

Answering your questions and providing additional information.

The photographs and the reviews of my service should give you some confidence – but many do ask why I can offer my services at such low costs. There are quite a lot of reasons, here are a few… – I am happy with the living I make. I don’t feel the need to overcharge you – I just focus on the paint work. I 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. – I employ staff (when required) that help wash & de-contaminate cars – freeing up my time to focus on detailing, allowing more cars to completed. – The coatings I use cure fast. I don’t need to store them inside for days- meaning I don’t have to pay larger rent rates for large premises – and can bring more work in. – I don’t do interior valets

No. I don’t offer such deals because…
– The prices I charge 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.
Yes. I have plenty of photographs, but here is an example of what my 1 stage polish can achieve.
 
 

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.

It is card payment only

Yes. Prices for larger cars can be seen at the bottom of ther description for each service. Most cars are included as standard. Large estates, or 4×4 sized vehicles are charged at £15 more… i.e a Ford Focus is £95 but a Range Rover Sport or BMW X5 is £110.

Yes. I offer high quality ceramic coating services at very affordable prices. 2 Year Coating for only £230.

If you would like to use my polishing service with specific damage in mind, please get in-touch with images before booking for my advice (ross@machinepolishing.com).
Some scratches are too deep to be fixed without painting, sadly- but, having said that, I am able to completely remove (or at least) take your eye off of most scratches.
However, even as part of my standard £95 service, if there is a scratch that needs extra attention, I do my best to go over it a couple of extra times free of charge.

But don’t take our word for it …

Took my LC500 in for the 5 year ceramic coating. The results were fantastic and really brought out the red. Ross is clearly very knowledgable about car care and is happy to pass on his expertise. You really can’t compete with the quality and the price that Ross offers. So why go anywhere else?

I had my car in with Ross today for ceramic coating. On arrival Ross's keen eye spotted that the cars paint work was far from looking like new. He explained what had been done to the cars paint work prior to me collecting and how he would correct this. I collected car later same day I am amazed at the difference he has made. I now have a car that for the first time looks like new.100% happy with car cheers Stuart M.

Excellent service from Ross and his team. They took my 10 year old car which had suffered from many years of bodywork neglect from previous owners and literally took years off the age of the car. Ross was great in explaining what could, and couln't be achieved (remembering that deep scratches etc. might require resprays etc.), but the results were superb. Highly recommended!

After viewing the amazing transformation of paintwork on vehicles of all ages brought in to Machine Polishing - Central Scotland, I dropped by to speak with Ross to ask if anything could be improved with the (admittedly neglected!) paintwork on my own car. Upon looking it over, Ross was very encouraging and adamant that there was massive potential to bring the paintwork back to a far better condition than what it was. After providing me with all the options available, I decided to go ahead with an application of the 5 Year Ceramic Coating, Ceramic Wax and Headlight Restoration. The result was beyond anything I could have hoped for and has brought the shine and sparkle back to the previous dull, tired paintwork on the car. The Headlight Restoration in particular as a before and after is quite incredible and would thoroughly recommend all the work Ross does at Machine Polishing - Central Scotland.

Excellent work on my Tesla M3P. There have been known paint issues on these cars but the work carried out was excellent and created brilliant results. Thanks again. Will be recommended to other Tesla owners.
