Why Valet?

“Valeting saves you money”

GaryGary Wray ~ 11/12/03

After your house, your car is probably the second biggest investment you will ever make. So doesn't it make sense to look after your investment? If you buy any car price guide, you will see that the difference in price between a car in poor condition and a car in excellent condition can run in to thousands of pounds. Valet services, and regular valeting can help keep your car in excellent condition. Valeting is not an expense, it's an investment.

Prevention is better than cure
We can offer a wide range of services to repair and rectify problems, but it's far better to come and see us first and avoid some of those problems altogether. When you have bought your new car, bring it to Clean Image and we can can offer you a range of services which can help protect and maintain.

A good quality sealant protects your paintwork and keeps your car looking younger for longer. It prevents you car from fading and going dull, and even offers some protection against stone chips and scratches.
Your paintwork isn't there just to look pretty. Paintwork protects your cars bodywork from rust. So it makes sense to protect this paintwork with a paint sealant... and even protect the sealant with a good quality wax. Not only will this protect your car from corrosion, it will leave your car as shiny as glass so the rain and dirt just slides off, making it easier to keep clean. Doesn't it make sense to do this from the very beginning?
Not only are our range of paint sealants up to 60% cheaper than dealership prices, but you can make further savings by taking advantage of our regular special offers.

We can even provide you with protective vinyl films which when applied to the bottoms of doors and around the boot area, can protect from wear and tear. Alloy Wheel coatings can prevent corrosion and tarnishing caused by the oxidizing effects of brake dust.

Most people have heard of Scotchguard, we can provided a range of different fabric protectors and coatings which prevent permanent stains, help keep your fabric clean and can even kill dustmites which cause allergies and asthma in children.

The benefits of regular valeting
Once your car is prepared and protected, it makes sense to keep it that way. Taking your car to the car wash just won't do. In fact much of our work involves rectifying the damage done to paintwork by car washes. Next time you are tempted to take your car through a car wash, we recommend getting out of your car and going to feel the brushes, if we tell you that we only use 100% cotton and special microfibre cloths because anything else will scratch the paintwork, you will see what we mean. You are far better off washing your car yourself, And if you keep you allow us to keep your car waxed and polished, this should be as easy as... pointing a hose pipe!

Valeting has been a secret that the car trade have known for years, they buy cars cheap, then use our services to increase the value before selling. While many people still think that having a car valet is "just a good clean" some have caught onto the idea that valeting increases the value of their vehicle... but the really smart people know that having a regular valet every few months means they get the benefit. Having a major valet just before you sell is a great idea, but why give a valet away to a buyer? Why not keep your car in tip-top condition while you own it?

A visit to Clean Image every few months helps us keep on top of those problems which if left unchecked can permanently devalue you car.
