Half day Detail

Half Day Detail Overview

Our half day detail is great value inside and out detail. More focused on the interior side of things. Our half day detail is a great way to freshen up your car that hasn’t had a detail in a while.

Our high quality standards set us apart and the half day detail is perfect for those looking for a good detail and the paint doesn’t need polishing. If you want a cut and polish see our all-day detail

We allow 3-4 hrs for the half day detail, previously called our pre-sale detail. We renamed it cause we believe that a cut and polish adds so much value when selling a car that a pre sale detail was not fitting.

For cars with good condition paint this offers the best value solution.  If your paint work is dull, scratched, or it needs/deserves a cut and polish we recommend looking at our all day detail where a full day time limit allows us to achieve spectacular results. For those cars that have only a few scratches we recommend adding the eye level paint correction add-on.

There needs to be written approval sent back to us and authorisation must be obtained before your booking day.  Engine bay detailing is a zero cost option. Should you book it over the phone, you will need to mention that you would like the engine bay to be done and they will then send you the engine bay cleaning authorisation email.
