With effect from January 1st, 2017 we will be scaling back our mobile valeting service. We will only offer Premium Valets within a smaller radius of our base and regular maintenance details to clients who have had cars detailed by us. Our reasons for doing this are very simple. As a completely legitimate business, we are fully insured and compliant with all tax requirements including VAT registration. 99% of businesses in the valeting market never make it to the VAT threshold so don’t have to charge it. Most of them only have Public Liability insurance (which costs about £200 per year – ours is £8500) and aren’t insured to move your car at all. A lot don’t bother with insurance or even pay tax. It means it is incredibly difficult for us to be competitive so we are no longer going to try.
We are keeping our Premium Valet Service because there has always been strong demand for it and it really does make a big difference to your car. We will also continue to look after our existing customers albeit with a new pricing structure. We have closed down our valeting specific website and are in the process of updating the quote tool and valeting information on this site. If you have any questions please fell free to call and ask, our number is 0800 0433055.
