Change is inevitable and the technology of cars is developing with the speed of light. This has inspired us to view the value of our vehicles in a different manner. Service intervals have increased, which has resulted in vehicle owners driving the same vehicle for a longer period of time. Vehicle owners consequently have many more aspects to consider than just the normal weekly maintenance car wash and this has created an awareness to maintaining the aesthetic appeal, as well as the value of our vehicles.

This led to exponential growth in professional detailing products & services. Professional detailing is the art and craft of exterior and interior cleaning, rectifying and restoring a vehicle to showroom condition with careful attention to every detail. This process has exposed the actual damage that is present on new and used vehicles caused by a number of factors such as wear & tear, transportation, environmental conditions, accidents etc. Damage could consist of scratches, minor bumps, scuffs, damaged or faded paint, faded plastic trims, dull leather & dashboards and the list goes on.

In order to experience the joy of a new vehicle by creating your own showpiece, it is important to familiarise yourself with the processes and professional products used.



As it is a passion, Professional Detailers always strive to provide the best possible service and highest quality of work. They hold in very high regard the sharing of information through effective communication, which form a vital part of this process to uphold the customer’s expectation and ultimately their satisfaction.

To ensure your car is detailed, flawlessly cleaned and most importantly protected against environmental factors during a car wash, valet or a detail – cheap and quick may not be the best option. The results from face value might look amazing, but over time they can cause degradation of the different surfaces on your vehicle void of protection and plastics will dull, paint will oxidise and the overall appearance & value of your vehicle will be affected.

The skill set and techniques, combined with the process and high-quality products used in professional detailing, ensures longevity and ultimate protection against any harsh chemicals or environmental factors which disturbs the paint on the body, other exterior parts, as well as the interior of your vehicle.

The process of detailing has been professionally engineered to cover every aspect of your vehicle’s needs to uphold the value of your vehicle.

When you choose to invest in your vehicle through extensive exterior and interior detailing, you will ultimately enjoy a safer and shiny attractive ride. Protect your investment and be reminded of the joy you experienced when you first purchased your vehicle, by maintaining the aesthetic appeal and resell value through the right skills, equipment and high-quality products to support you.
