Details Details

We are a workshop based in Essex where you can bring your car or motorbike and use our facilities to wash and detail it until your heart’s content.

We offer the use of a state of the art Jet Wash and Washing Bay, where you can get into all those nooks and crannies and wash the daily dirt and grime off, and get it back to its gleaming self.

You can then pull it into our undercover brightly lit Detailing Bay, dry it down and do all those finishing touches. You will have access to an air line to blow away the excess water and a powerful hoover to get the inside as clean as the outside.

You are welcome to bring your own detailing products (we all have our firm favourites) or you can purchase some products from us directly on the day.

Once you are happy with your work, you can drive away and show it off to your friends!
