Clay bar to remove surface contamination

Over time, contamination of surfaces can occur due to tar, rail dust, tree sap and other environmental pollution, all of which can not be removed by washing alone. Some valeters will use Traffic Film Remover (TFR) or solvents to remove these which are harsh on the paintwork, can dull chrome and cause premature aging of rubber seals and plastics.

At GCV, prior to washing we use a gentle citrus cleaner, and following the wash, we use a clay bar with lubricant to pull contamination from the surface (standard in our exterior Platinum valets). This is kinder to the vehicle as well as leaving long-term, durable waxes intact.

Machine Polishing

Machine polishing includes the elimination of oxidation, and reduction or elimination of minor scratches and swirls. GCV’s Platinum valets include single stage machine polishing.

Specialist Glaze, Sealant or Wax

Waxes, glazes and sealants provide the final protection for your newly prepared paintwork. The standard wax affords a good degree of durability.

However, we also offer a range of premium waxes from Collinite, Duragloss and Swissvax, representing some of the world’s most reputable brands. These products have a high content of quality Carnauba and natural conditioning oils. The resulting glossy, water-repellent coating is easier to keep clean and maintains a superb deep gloss shine and maximises resistance to environmental hazards.

Please note that our Bronze valets employ a combined wash and wax product to provide durable protection for your vehicle’s paintwork.

Duragloss Approved Detailer

GCV is proud to advise that in June 2007 it met the exacting standards required to become a Duragloss Approved Detailer. We can guarantee the best possible results for your paintwork should you wish to upgrade to Duragloss polishes and waxes, or you would like Duragloss products used when having your vehicle fully detailed.

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Wherever possible GCV uses a proprietary shampoo for carpet and upholstery cleaning, which provides excellent results for most vehicles. However, we acknowledge that some more stubborn stains can only be removed by the use of steam cleaning,Whichever method we use as much excess cleaning fluid will be removed using an extractor. Before cleaning, each vehicle is assessed to determine the most appropriate method to be employed.

For leather upholstery, a gentle cleaner is first used. This is followed by a conditioner that restores, softens and protects the leather, and re-instates the original smell.

Free local collection and delivery

Occasionally it is not possible to valet your car at your home or place of work, perhaps due to a lack of space or inclement weather conditions. For your convenience, we are pleased to be able to offer a free collection/delivery service in the following areas: Angmering, East Preston, Ferring, Findon, Goring-By-Sea, Kingston and Rustington.
