New Car Detail

This signature service ensures that from day one your car is ready for the road with the best possible protection. New Car Preparation is often overlooked.

You expect new cars to be delivered and presented with the utmost care, boasting flawless paintwork and perfect in every way (with nothing to hide).  Unfortunately, this is rarely the case as storage conditions, transportation and unskilled PDI preparation at the dealerships 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 to name a few.

Our New Car Detail Takes 1-2 days and comprises of the industries’ finest tools, chemicals, and coatings, providing protection for your investment for years to come with unrivaled UV resistance, amazing gloss, and dirt repellents.

We first start with a full extensive safe wash, using pure water including a decontamination stage and a blow-dry to remove trapped water and eliminate drips.

Single-stage machine polish to prepare the paint to enhance gloss and remove surface defects which include things such as marring and fine scratches.

Paintwork is then wiped over with an IPA solution.  This removes any polish residue and oils leaving the ideal base for the protective coating to bond to.

Wax/sealant coatings are then applied (Price dependent on coating choice).

  • Tyres dressed
  • Glass cleaned

Ceramic coating

Ceramic Guard is one of our most popular services and is a new breakthrough in the field of nano-ceramic coatings using Si-Carbon technology.

This revolutionary service will produce a very smooth, high-gloss and durable protective coating, like an extra clear topcoat to your bodywork. This will strengthen and increases the hardness of the original lacquer, and greatly reduce future scratches.

Some Key benefits of Ceramic coating are:

  • Visibly deeper in shine
  • Anti-Scratch properties
  • Produces a hydrophobic seal that repels moisture and dirt from the bodywork which makes in turn makes it easier to maintain and clean.
  • Paint is protected from Road Grime, Salt, UV radiation, Aggressive chemicals and Acid rain. All these things usually reduce the gloss and brilliance of paintwork.
  • Comes with a 3-year guarantee which is extended to a lifetime guarantee with an annual top up service.

Ceramic coating is the perfect way to keep your car bodywork looking and feeling better than new.

We first perform a “Single Stage Enhancement” which is included in this service to ensure the paintwork is in perfect condition prior to the application of the coating.

Price from: £450 + vat
