Polishing & Detailing

Our Polishing services is divided by two categories. Both can be customised to suit you.

Please read through these services and then contact me to discuss your needs.

It is best that a pre inspection and polishing test spot is done before starting work to ensure the level of work meets your expectation.

COVID-19 complicates matters so here are some suggestions:

  • Come in for a pre-inspection before booking and we conduct it with the appropriate social distancing.
  • Book your car for a Single Step Correction, our base package, and when you drop off your car, I will then inspect and polish a test spot so you can see in person while you wait or we send you video / photos if you have not.
  • We conduct a pre-inspection using a combination of video and high res photography.
    • This will be laborious but its and option.
    • Lighting and angle is the big issue.

If you are specifically wanting to know about removing something stuck on your paint, example paint splatter etc, you need Paint Decontamination

Why this approach?

Every car is different. It’s condition, swirls and scratches, age, how its cared for, stored, used, paint type i.e. soft or hard, original or resprayed etc

Your expectations, how you look at the car, level of detail and budget is also unique.

To achieve the best results its important to treat each car and customer individually and not by a one size fits all approach.

No matter how these services can be described, It can still be confusing as to which service will meet your needs. The reason for this is that polishing and detail is visual. You cant read about it, you need to see it for yourself!
