DETAILING PACKAGES

The Washbay valet and detailing was established in 1988 and has been in business for over 30 years.

We specialise in all types of vehicles from brand-new vehicles sometimes direct from the main dealership to older vehicles from customers looking to get them back to life again.

Believe it or not your brand new car paint is usually overlooked and full of contaminants collected on the journey from the factory to your dealer and this detail is perfect to give your brand new car the best start in life.

Depending on the condition of your cars paint, we would advise you as to what amount of paint enhancement and machine polishing would be required to restore your vehicle paintwork.  Some vehicles may need a single stage others may require two or three stages to restore the paint work.

We are accredited certified detailers in MATRIX ceramic coatings, meaning not only are we trained and skilled but also able to offer a warranty for up to 8 years.
