All about our Quote, Inspection and Assessment policy

All prices for our services is on this website.

If you contact me to get advise or answer a query, or better than that come in for an an Inspection / Assessment I will be glad to look through your vehicle on visually and advise on pricing. This includes polishing out a test spot so you can see what works for you. This will be at no cost or obligation to you.

However If you want a written report or quotation generated this will come at a cost of R200 which will be deducted from the job amount once done.

I can also provide a Digital Paint Report which records Paint Thickness to identify risks, repairs, condition of vehicle etc. I can go out to assess a vehicle you are perhaps interested in buying at a cost to you.

Polishing Services

If something is stuck on your paint that doesnt wash off its known as a contaminant and needs to be Decontaminated and possible polished afterwards.

If something is stuck on your paint that doesnt wash off its known as a contaminant.

You need Paint Decontamination first and potential polishing if whatever is stuck on scratches while we take it off.

It is best you bring it in for us to inspect it and then test what works so we can be exact with pricing.

If you need a quotation / written report we will only do so once we’ve seen the car. For written quotes and reports we charge R200 which we will refund once we do the job.
