At classic we are always thinking of our customer's needs and providing the best information, advice alongside our service's we offer. We offer a variety of package's but have split them into two group's that are known better as valeting and detailing.There's many who will argue that there's no real difference between the two and It’s just that car detailing is used in America while valeting is used in Britain.However each has evolved to describe different levels of vehicle cleaning. How can you distinguish one from the other? Read on and I shall give my view. Is valeting really different from detailing? So i looked at the definition of both in online dictionaries i found out that valeting means “to clean the bodywork and interior of a car as a professional service”. On the other hand, dictionary com defines detailing as “the process of thoroughly cleaning the interior and exterior of a vehicle and doing minor repairs to improve It's appearance”. Now let’s take a look at what’s included in each service. Full Valeting Service: Full exterior wash and dry, tar spots/tree sap removal, hand polish and waxing A full interior vacuum, interior carpet shampoo leather seats cleaning, plastic trim, dashboards, chrome cleaning and cleaning tyre's and glass. Detailing Service: A full car detailing is very similar to car valeting but with the addition of the following services Paint care like paint correction /enhancement , swirls and scratches removed, chassis degrease and rust neutralised, wheels off and clean, headlights restored and exterior trim. Interior detailing engine bay cleaning, Indoor air purification, Interior steam cleaning, sealant, ceramic coating, paint protection film and more As you can see car detailing is the most meticulous when it comes to cleaning services.This is why vehicle detailing prices are higher.But if you take into account the speed of the service, quality of materials, tools and equipment and most importantly the skills of detailing technicians then that cost is justified. In Conclusion I hope this post helps you determine the difference between detailing and valeting. You can further check out the benefits of mobile detailing or valeting and schedule an appointment with us to have your car professionally cleaned.

I took my BMW i8 to CLASSIC MOBILE VALET for a paint enhancement and was beyond impressed. The shine was fantastic. A year later and it looks just as good at the day it was done!
I was nervous about taking my AMG Mercedes anywhere. What won me over was the explanation Lee gave about the methods he would use. He didn't mind me watching and even showed me how to maintain the look myself!
