“Jake replied quickly and rearranged an appointment with no hassle. He did a full interior and exterior valet, wheels, engine bay and machine polish. The 6 year old car looks like it’s just rolled out the factory. Jake clearly takes pride in his work and values quality. Very happy, can’t fault him at all. Easy to see this is the consistent standard with all the other 5* reviews”

“I found Jake last minute as I needed someone to make good a job from another car valeter (Fresh) who did a dreadful full valet on my Toyota Land Cruiser. Well, thank god for finding Jake, what a lovely lad and what a great job he did. I’ve use many car valeters in my time and Jake is one of the best I’ve used. Highly recommend, give him a call if you want your car looking MINT.”

What is Car Valeting and what is included?

We’re dedicated to making your vehicle look its absolute best, and we offer an extensive range of services tailored to meet your car’s unique needs. Our experienced team ensures a thorough and professional finish every time. Here’s a rundown of our car valeting services:

What does car valeting include: 

  • Exterior Wash: This involves thoroughly cleaning the vehicle’s exterior using special chemicals including: snow foam, citrus prewash, shampoo, a pressure washer, microfibre/lambs wool wash mitts and more.
  • Wheel Cleaning: wheel faces, barrels and tyres are cleaned to remove brake dust, dirt, and grime. We often use Fallout Remover, wheel brushes and wheel whoolies to ensure best results.
  • Glass Cleaning: Both the interior and exterior sides of the glass are cleaned for a streak-free finish.
  • Interior Cleaning: The inside of the vehicle is vacuumed, including seats, carpet, and front and back trunks. Dusting and wiping down all interior surfaces, including the dashboard, center console, and door panels, are also typically part of the process.
  • Upholstery and Leather Cleaning: Depending on the vehicle’s interior, fabric seats might be shampooed and cleaned, or leather seats could be cleaned and conditioned.
  • Air Freshening: After cleaning, an air freshener can be applied to leave the car smelling fresh.
  • Engine Bay Cleaning: Some valeting services also offer engine bay cleaning, where the engine compartment is cleaned and dressed to look like new. This is usually done with caution to avoid damaging electrical components.
  • Other Add-On Services: Depending on the valeting package, other services like clay barring (to remove embedded contaminants from paint), headlight restoration, or paint protection might be included or offered at an additional cost.
  • Packages may vary: if you know exactly what you want, then please send us a message and detail this as our packages may vary.

What’s not including in standard valeting services:

  • Machine Polishing
  • Ceramic Coating
  • Paint Protection Film

These services can be added-on to a valeting package or you could take a look at our Car Detailing, Ceramic Coating and PPF packages.

What is the difference between car valeting and car detailing services? 

We often see these two phrases used interchangeably, but there is one key way to understand the difference between valeting and detailing. 

The main goal of Car Valeting is to clean the vehicle from everyday dirt and grime. It’s a routine service, and usually complete in 1-3 hours depending on the specific package. Valeting services are usually completed on your drive, at your home or business and are often completed as frequently as fortnightly to ensure your car always looks clean and shiny.

Car Detailing Services often start with a detailed wash and decontamination, the main goal of detailing is to enhance, correct and transform a vehicle’s paintwork to it’s former glory, before protecting the vehicle with advanced technology such as Ceramic Coating and Paint Protection Film. 

How long does valeting take?

Car valeting is a process of thoroughly cleaning a vehicle and it can vary in duration based on the level of service required, and your budget. There are a few key factors which affect the time spent valeting a car:

  • The condition of your car, how often it’s used and what it’s frequently used for
  • The tasks involved in your car valeting package
  • Whether you opt for add-ons such as polishing, ceramic coating or PPF
To give you an idea of what can be achieved in a given set of time, take a look at these examples below.


1-2 Hours Valeting:

Typical Services Included:

  • Exterior Wash: A thorough wash of the vehicle’s exterior using car shampoos, followed by rinsing and drying.

  • Interior Vacuum: A quick vacuum of the seats, carpets, and floor mats.

  • Window Cleaning: Cleaning of both the interior and exterior windows for a streak-free finish.

  • Wheel and Tire Cleaning: Basic cleaning to remove surface dirt and brake dust.

  • Dashboard and Console Wipe Down: A quick wipe-down of the dashboard, center console, and door panels.

Summary: This would be a basic valet, focusing primarily on surface cleaning to make the vehicle look presentable. It’s suitable for vehicles that are already in relatively good condition and just need a routine clean-up.

3-4 Hours Valeting:

Typical Services Included:

  • Exterior Wash: As above, but possibly with more attention to detail and additional treatments like tar removal and bug splatter cleaning.

  • Interior Deep Cleaning: A more thorough vacuuming that might also include getting into tight spaces, under seats, and the trunk. Plus, the shampooing of carpets and upholstery to remove stains and embedded dirt.

  • Wheel Cleaning and Treatment: Deeper cleaning of the rims and tires, potentially using specialized products. Some providers might also apply a tire dressing to give the tires a glossy finish.

  • Interior Surface Deep Clean: This might include using specialized products to clean and treat the dashboard, console, door panels, and other surfaces, ensuring they’re free from dirt, dust, and sticky residues.

  • Air Freshening: A deodorizing treatment to ensure the car smells fresh.

  • Engine Bay Cleaning: Some valeting services might offer a basic engine bay cleaning in this timeframe, ensuring that the engine compartment is free from excessive dirt and grime.

Summary: A valeting service of this duration would be more comprehensive, addressing not only the surface but also deeper-seated dirt and issues. It’s suitable for vehicles that might have been neglected for a while or for those who want a more thorough cleaning.

The difference between the two timeframes mainly revolves around the depth of cleaning. The longer service allows for more attention to detail, deeper cleaning, and the possibility of addressing specific issues or areas that might be overlooked or rushed in a shorter service.
