Our Process

The enhancement detail process starts with a thorough pre-inspection of your vehicle to determine which combination of products and equipment will be required to achieve the results that we have discussed during the consultation.

Every vehicle we prepare goes through our rigorous and meticulous multiple stage wash and decontamination programme, which will remove all bonded surface contaminants such as tree sap, road tar, and industrial fallout. This is a vital stage prior to the machine polishing and correction process as these contaminants could otherwise be worked into the paint causing further damage.

Once the Wash and decontamination stage is complete, we then carry out the machine polishing process. Through years of detailing expertise, we have gained significant knowledge in this field which enables us to carefully select the correct machine, pad and polish combination to achieve the desired results.  The enhancement detail corrects around 60% of the defects and is generally a single stage machine polish which typically takes 1-3 days to complete, depending on which options are selected.

The final stage of the enhancement detail is protection. This is a vital component to ensure your vehicle is protected from the elements and also makes the future upkeep easier, whilst looking fresh and sharp for longer. Depending on your specific requirements and vehicle usage, (the daily commute or show vehicle) we have options of protection, which last from 6 months to 10 years. This is achieved by using either Swissvax Wax, ceramic coating or XPEL Paint Protection film. We have additional options to protect all surfaces of your vehicle including wheels, brake callipers, wheel arches, Glass, plastics, rubber, fabric and Leather. These will be discussed at your consultation.

A complimentary interior cleanse is included in each of our detailing packages, comprising of a thorough vacuuming, dusting, glass polish and appropriate dressing of all interior surfaces.
