    Went into a car park the other day and get handed a leaflet for car washing goes like this....

    £8 wash and shammy
    £10 above and hoover
    £15 above and dust and doorsills
    £20 above plus wheels and tyres
    £35 above and wax
    £43 hoover dust interior windows and doorshuts
    £43 interior handwash
    £65 full valet showroom condition

    plus the fact you would have to park in the carpark for hours so add another £5!!!

    re: How lazy can you be?

    My mate sometimes gets his car washed, the difference being that they come to you, whether you be at your house, place of work or where ever!

    These 2 guys bring everything! including their own water and electric gen.

    For £50 they will both spend 3 hours washing, drying, polishing, waxing, vacuuming, cleaning, shampooing the seats, and upholstery etc. and at the end they throw in this little ball, close all the doors and windows, this little ball then explodes and the car windows all mist up, the mist clears without a trace and your left with a wonderfully fresh smelling car.

    I think that is really good value for £50, seeing as they use all there own products, water and electricity and come to your location Plus your getting the equivalent of 6 man hours being spent on your car.

    Now that sounds good but not for me prefer to do it myself. Just thought if they shampoo your seats when you get it done at the carpark you'd have a wet arse as they wudnt dy

    bryon sri, £65 for a full valet is extremely good value for money depending on what he does, we charge £200 for the top of the range valet. But that included swirl removal not hiding! paint rejuvination/protections. Basically everything on the car is better than show room its concourse condition!

    so you pay £8 for a wash and shammy, but you have to pay £20 for them to clean your wheels aswell as the body!!

    There's a firm that comes to our works and they will valet a car top to bottom for you. They did a mates car and actually came into his works to ask for the locking wheel nut key when they cleaned the wheels, took 'em off and did the insides because they were multispoke BBS. Perhaps that's what this firm does as well, hence the hike in price?
