New car detail

This will ensure, that from day 1, your car is ready for the road with the best possible protection. New Car Preparation is often overlooked. It’s brand new after all!

You’d expect a new car to be delivered and presented with the utmost of care, boasting flawless paintwork and perfect in every way (with nothing to hide.) Unfortunately, this is rarely the case…
Storage conditions, damage in transportation and poor unskilled PDI preparation at the Dealership, can lead to a whole array of defects and problem areas that need addressing. Fine scratches, surface marring, machine holograms, bird lime catching, metallic fallout and lacquer “fish eyes” to name but a few.

You may well have been offered the in-house ‘paint protection package’ with “5 years protection”, “no more polishing” and other such big claims, in reality, they offer poor value for money (package’s such as Supaguard, LifeShine, DiamondBrite and Gard X.) These products are often applied incorrectly and over poorly prepared paint finishes as the in-house valet team are given strict timescales with minimal training on how to correctly prepare and protect your newly purchased pride and joy.

Our New Car Detail Takes 1-2 days (not 1-2 hours) and comprises of some of the industries’ finest tools, chemicals and coatings; protecting your investment for up to 24 months. Giving paintwork unrivalled UV resistance, dirt repellency and swirl resistance. With our New Car Detail Extra’s Pack, alloy wheels are removed to be collected inside and out, exterior glass sealed with a durable rain repellent, interior upholstery treated to a scotch guard fabric protectant and leather seats receiving a water-based dirt & dye transfer barrier. All in, the best start in life for your investment.

It is advised to ask the supplying dealership not to touch the car before collection. No-wash. No polish… This way, we reduce the need for costly paint correction services where fine scratches and swirls from bad contact could have easily been induced in the preparation stages.

Minor paint correction

Your car will undergo an extensive wash program including a full decontamination process followed by a two-stage machine polish to eliminate light swirls/scratches, oxidation and dull hazy paintwork that can be caused over the years by poor washing techniques, bad contact and strong chemicals.

Major paint correction

In this process, we strive to achieve paintwork perfection!

After undergoing an intensive wash program, including a full decontamination process, we will then start the process of breathing new life into your paintwork.

Using a multitude of machine passes to safely remove heavier defects found on most vehicles, such as deep scratches, bird etchings, body shop buffer trails, swirls, holograms and sanding marks. The Major Paint Correction Detail is perfect for the tired vehicle that requires a second lease of life.

Sometimes 100% correction isn’t always possible; compromise has to be made on areas with thin clear coat where it would be impractical to sacrifice lacquer and to run the risk of striking through. Also, as a general rule, scratches that you can ‘feel’ with your fingernail will usually require paint (However they can be visibly reduced by ‘rounding off’ the edges with the correct machine polishing techniques.)

Typically, over 95% correction will be met with a Major Paint Correction Detail and is guaranteed to transform your vehicle.
