Frequently Asked Questions

What is Car Detailing and other frequently asked questions about detailing. If you’ve still got questions? We’ve answered a few FAQs about detailing and valeting below.

What is car detailing? 

You know how you give your car a quick wash and it looks pretty good? Well, car detailing is like that, but on steroids! It’s the ultimate car cleaning job, making your ride look brand spankin’ new, like it just rolled off the dealership lot.

You see, when we say ‘detailing’, we’re talking about going far beyond your typical car wash. It’s like giving your car a super deep clean, both inside and out. We scrub every little nook and cranny, from the grilles on the front to the exhaust at the back, and everything in between. We’re talking the dashboard, the vents, the mats, even the teeny tiny cracks in the seats – we don’t miss a spot!

But detailing doesn’t stop at cleaning. We also polish your car, bringing out that shiny, glossy finish. We’ll treat the paintwork to remove scratches and swirls, restore faded trim, and buff the body until it gleams. Plus, we protect your car, applying sealants or waxes to keep it looking top-notch for longer.

The aim of the game is to get your car looking and feeling like it did the day it was born, er, I mean manufactured. So, you’re not only getting a sparkling clean car, but one that’s in tip-top condition too. It’s like a spa day for your car, but instead of a cucumber facial, it gets a tyre shine!

So that’s what car detailing is in a nutshell. Think of it as the ultimate pampering session for your ride, because your car deserves to look its best too, right?

What is machine polishing? 

So, you know how sometimes your car’s paint job can look a bit dull or maybe you’ve got some minor scratches and swirls on it? Well, that’s where machine polishing comes to the rescue, my friend!

Think of machine polishing like a magic eraser for your car’s paint. It’s a process where we use a specialized machine, called a polisher, to gently rub a cutting compound – that’s a kind of abrasive paste – onto your car’s paint. Now, don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds! It’s like using a gentle scrub on your face to remove dead skin cells and reveal the fresh, smooth skin underneath.

The machine polisher moves in a very controlled and precise manner, either in a random circular motion, called “random orbital” or in a regular circular pattern, known as “rotary”. This motion combined with the cutting compound can erase minor scratches, swirl marks and even oxidization. It’s like we’re buffing away the bad stuff and bringing back the good!

The end result is a super shiny, glass-like finish that’ll make your car look like it’s just come straight out of the showroom. So, machine polishing is basically a fountain of youth for your car’s paint job. A good polish can transform your car from a dull, scratched, ‘seen better days’ kind of ride, to a glossy, ‘check me out’, head-turning machine!

So there you have it – machine polishing in a nutshell. It’s all about giving your car’s paint that extra bit of TLC to bring out its true shine and luster

What is Ceramic Coating? 

So, you know how you use sunscreen to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun? Well, ceramic coating does something similar for your car. It’s like a super-strong, invisible shield that keeps your car’s paint looking fresh and new for a much longer time than regular waxes or sealants.

Ceramic coating, sometimes called nano-ceramic coating, is a liquid polymer that we apply by hand to your car’s exterior. Once it’s on there and it’s cured (that’s a fancy way of saying it’s dried and hardened), it bonds with your car’s paint on a microscopic level. I’m talking about a bond so strong, it’s like the two become best friends for life!

This creates a top layer that’s resistant to a whole bunch of things like UV rays, scratches, dirt, chemical stains, and even bird droppings. It’s like a suit of armor for your car that keeps it from getting faded, discolored or dull.

Plus, the coating is hydrophobic, which is a fancy way of saying it repels water. So, when it rains or when you wash your car, the water just beads up and rolls off, taking any dirt with it. It’s like your car has its own built-in self-cleaning system!

And the best part? Your car gets a mirror-like shine that’ll turn heads wherever you go. A well-applied ceramic coating really makes your car look like a million bucks.

In a nutshell, a ceramic coating is one of the best ways to keep your car looking as beautiful as the day you fell in love with it. It’s like a force field that defends your car from the daily wear and tear, while also keeping it shining like a superstar.
