Ceramic Coating

3-5 Years Protection – A ceramic coating is state-of-the-art protection that is highly resistant to scratches, whilst protecting your paintwork from the elements, such as road salt. It also provides high amounts of gloss levels.

Our coatings are hydrophobic and offer fantastic water beading and water repellent properties, which in effect means it literally cleans itself (making it much easier to clean). Unlike many sealant packages, once applied, no more waxing will be required.

Paint Correction Detail

This is a 2 stage detail designed to remove 75-85% of all surface defects including oxidation and some heavier scratches that a 1 stage polish may be unable to remove. The process begins with a first stage medium-strong cut compound to remove defects and is then followed by a second polishing stage to refine the paintwork and increase gloss levels.

The rate for a stage 2 correction can vary depending on car but we will consult with each customer to provide a more accurate expectation.


Protection Detail

A protective detail which includes a deep clean suited for vehicles that require no paint correction and to help improve the overall appearance leaving your car with a gloss and silky finish.

This ‘deep-clean’ service is the foundation of detailing, stripping back contaminants on the surface, enhancing the gloss levels on the paintwork and protecting the exterior against the elements.


Enhancement Detail

This detail is suited best for cars, previously detailed at some stage of their life and/or new cars before the application of paint protection film or ceramic coating. If your car has been used regularly and exposed to the elements, it would be better suited for a stage 2/3 detail.

Surface scratches and light marring will let down a vehicles appearance and leave a dull, hazy finish. The enhancement detail is designed to enhance the gloss, clarity and depth of your paintwork through the use of mild abrasives and a foam finishing pad. This will remove a bulk of the swirling and present your car with a glossier finish.


The FRSH Detail

This is the ultimate detail for those who want there paintwork flawless and absolutely defect free. This detail eliminates severe swirls, medium to deeper scratches with the use of wet sanding. A variety of abrasive sand paper is used to re-level the paint surface and eliminate any orange peel.

The vehicle then undergoes 4-5 stages of machine polishing to achieve a sharp reflection with a smooth surface. This detail normally achieves 99% paint correction. We leave nothing untouched with this detail includes the exterior trims, interior, engine bay so your car is better than new.


Ultimate Detail

This service delivers paintwork perfection; more times leaving the paintwork in better condition than when collected from the showroom. We use various method and multiple machine passes to safely remove heavy defects such as deep scratches, bird etchings and sanding marks. This detail is perfect for the car that requires a second lease of life. The ultimate detail normally takes 4+ days dependant on the vehicles condition and normally offers around 90-95% correction.

Please note: This will not fix scratches that have gone the lacquer or stone chips.


VIP Wash/ Maintenance Detail

An entry level package for our regular customers to keep their cars looking the best all year round. This is a starting point detail to freshen up your vehicles appearance . An important factor in keeping your car looking great for a long time is the correct methods of care and maintenance.

After having your vehicle detailed, waxed, ceramic coated or protected with PPF, we recommend regularly hand washing your car to keep it looking its best. We understand not everybody has the time to wash their car themselves, so we offer aftercare services to keep your car looking awesome all year round.

Prices from £500 - Our New Car Paint Protection Detail is specifically designed to ensure your new vehicle begins its life in the best possible way and is fully protected over time. We safely prepare your new vehicle at our Kent studio in the way that it deserves before applying quality products to all exterior surfaces. These provide great protection, easy maintenance and amazing levels of gloss.

Giving your new car the best possible protection and finish throughout its lifetime

You’d expect a new car to be delivered and presented with immaculate paintwork and with nothing to hide. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. From delivery, we have seen resprayed panels to sanding marks and buffer trails. Storage conditions, transportation damage and poor preparation during Pre-Delivery Inspection at the Dealership can cause many defects and problem areas that may need addressing, such as fine scratches, surface marring, factory induced sanding marks, holograms, metallic fallout and lacquer “fish eyes” to name a few.

Many dealerships will probably offer their in-house packages such as Supaguard, AutoGlym, Lifeshine, DiamondBrite and GardX with “lifetime paint protection” and other big claims that cost a fortune but in reality, they offer relatively poor value for money. These products more than often are applied incorrectly, without any prior preparation to the paintwork and over poorly prepared paint finishes as the in-house valet team are given short timescales (1-2 Hours) with minimal training on how to correctly prepare and protect your newly purchased car.

Our New Car Detail typically takes 1-2 days (not 1 -2 hours) at our car detailing Kent studio and uses some of the industries finest tools, chemicals and coatings; protecting your car between 12 months to 5 years. Thanks to the state of the art nano-ceramic coatings we provide unrivalled UV resistance, dirt repellency, easy clean and swirl resistance. With our Total Surface Protection package, we offer coatings for the alloys to be removed and coated inside and out, exterior glass coated and sealed with a durable rain repellent, interior protected with nano-ceramic coatings on carpets, Alcantara and leather to protect against any dirt & dye.

All in, this is the best way to help you protect your vehicle, by making sure it starts its life in the best possible way, thereby protecting your investment.

It is advised to ask your dealership not to touch the car prior to collection, with no wash or polish as this way, we reduce the need for costly paint correction where fine scratches and swirls could have easily been induced in the preparation stages.

Our fabric treatment makes ordinary fabrics waterproof and easy to clean. It protects all kinds of fabrics from water and oil-based stains, and prevents soaking, swelling or rotting on any fabric. Our treatment coats each fibre individually, leaving the texture unaffected, allowing the material to breathe. This means stale air will still be able to escape while repelling water and oil-based liquids.

Our leather coating offers the best type of protection against staining and dye transfer from jeans and dark suits on pale leather. Being solvent based it penetrates deep into the leather and adds water repellency to the surface of the leather. It also provides effective UV protection which prevents cracking and fading. Ceramic coating is now available at our car detailing Kent studio.

An overview of what we do

Detailing involves a keen eye for perfection and detail as the name suggests. Detailing involves thorough cleaning that a basic “valet” doesn’t offer. We fully decontaminate the car before refining the vehicles paint work, making it defect-free, by the removal of scratches and marring through the careful use of various polishes and pad combinations. We then protect the car through the options of wax, ceramic or paint protection to ensure that the paintwork is sealed from further contaminants, protected and maintained to prevent any further damage to the paintwork.


We believe in order for us to give you the best car detailing outcome, we require a consultation with you and your car.
