Lomax Car Valeting & Detailing has had a special job - detailing a BMW for The Daily Star's Mark Forsyth to appear in the national press. To prepare the car for sale it was given the Entry Level Detail, this is an comprehensive car valeting service which also includes a single stage machine polish to repair light damage and a glazed and waxed finish to ensure that the car looks its best.

The Car Detailing Process :

To prepare it for an intensive wash the car was snow foamed including the wheels and wheel arches. A degreaser was applied and the car was rinsed down with purified water and fully washed with professional pH balanced car shampoo using specialist grit guard buckets (this included the engine bay and door shuts) .

Grit guard buckets are essential for stopping dirt or grit being put back onto car paintwork - this is a common problem with cheap car valeting and it results in light scratches and dulled paintwork which can only be repaired by machine polishing.

Using purified water the car was rinsed down again and hand dried with a plush microfibre towel. Bonded contaminants were removed from the car paintwork with a clay bar.

After this preparation a single stage machine polishing was performed. This highly skilled process restores car paintwork by removing light scratches, swirl marks and other signs of general wear and tear or damage.

A glaze was applied to help conceal any defects which the machine polishing was unable to remove, and also to enhance the finish. Finally the car paintwork was further enhanced and protected with a layer of Autoglym™ HD wax.

Once the exterior was finished the entire car interior was vacuumed, including the boot and spare wheel bay. Plastics and interior fittings were all cleaned with a specialist disinfecting clearner.

A specialist hot carpet extractor was used to deep clean the carpets and mats, and the leather was treated and protected with a leather balm. To finish, the glass was cleaned and an air freshener was added.

Preparing your car for sale with professional detailing is an excellent way to ensure you get a good price and sell it fast - we're told that this BMW sold within 5 minutes of being made available online!

Thanks to Mark Forsyth of The Daily Star for the article and photographs.

A Lasting Finish

For all car valeting & detailing work we use professional paintwork treatments which actively repel water and resist dirt and contaminants.

This offers lasting protection from the wear and damage of daily use, keeping car paintwork in optimal condition for longer than with the conventional techniques offered by cheap drive in car washes or which may be achieved by domestic car cleaning products.

Our mobile car valeting and detailing vehicle can visit you at your convenience and choice of location within a 20 mile radius of Bourne, Lincolnshire, covering the Spalding, Stamford, Market Deeping and the Peterborough and Cambridgeshire areas.
