New Car Protection Details

Prices From : £250 (subject to vehicle size and condition)

Time taken 5-10 hours (size of vehicle dependent)

The small print:

The new vehicle in question must have under 2500 miles on the clock otherwise it can not have a new car detail.

New Car Preparations are often overlooked. “It’s brand new! It shouldn’t need polishing!?”

To give your vehicle the best start in life get it booked in for one of my very popular New Car Details. Very often from the factory a new car isn’t always perfect, the vehicle can have various defects in the paint and may require a bit of machine polishing to remove this.

Even more so with main dealers, Although you’re likely to be offered the in-house ‘paint protection packages’ with “5 years protection”, “no more polishing” and other such big claims, in reality, they offer poor value for money (package’s such as Supaguard, LifeShine, DiamondBrite and Gard X). These products are often applied incorrectly and over poorly prepared paint finishes as the in-house valet team are given strict timescales and are poorly trained to do the job as quickly as possible on how to correctly prepare and protect your newly purchased pride and joy.

The most recommended way to get your new car looking as it should do is to say no to any dealer prep work. Book a professional detailer to carry out a new car detail on your brand new investment and it’ll look great.

Detailers are highly skilled in many parts of detailing so will take great care of your new car using top quality products that last!

FM Detailing are Max Protect approved detailing services so will offer their range of ceramic coatings first.

Ceramic coatings are available for extra cost ( please choose from list below for upgrades on ceramic coatings )

Please Note a £30 Booking fee is required for Detailing work, this is payable via bank transfer or Paypal when a date has been arranged.

After taking delivery of a brand new car with just 9 miles on the clock I was shocked at the condition of the paintwork, extensive swirling and buffing marks over the whole car that could not be missed immediately soured my joy.
However after seeing the outstanding work Fran performed on my friend Ben’s Golf I got in contact right away, the man is truly a detailing master (and a real trooper working under the baking sun all day) so to say the finished article looks 100x better would be an understatement!!
Looking forward to giving our other car the same treatment as soon as possible and will recommend FMdetailing at every opportunity!
Top work from a true gent.
