THE WASH PROCESS

  • Car pre-rinsed to remove any light dirt etc.

  • Inner wheel arches jet washed ensuring any built-up dirt is removed.

  • Car deep soaked in either Yum foam or Bilt Hamber snow foam to break down any road grime, tree sap, bird mess, bugs, etc. An essential stage of our safe wash process.

  • Soft detailing brushes and APC (Surfex HD) is used on window rubbers, fuel filler, and intricate areas for extra dirt removal.

  • Bodywork hand washed using the two bucket method, grit guards, soft microfibre mitts, and Bilt Hamber or Yum wash shampoo to ensure a wonderfully soft and thorough clean.

  • The vehicle is then gently dried using new microfibre plush drying towels.

EXTERIOR​​

  • Car carefully hand-polished using a choice of premium polishes (3m, Auto Finesse, Autoglym, Menzerna) and fresh microfibre cloths leaving the paint glossy and vibrant. Please note this will only enhance the gloss and add a basic layer of protection. It will not tackle deeper scratches or marks to the paint, especially on darker cars. Please discuss anything with our team before any work commences and we will be happy to offer a solution.
