    how much for somone to machine polish my car?

    ive got a few swirl marks on my car and from what ive read a machine polisher will remove these but im to much of a wimp to do it myself as i could do some serious damage to the paint

    so just wanted an estimate of how much somone would charge to do this and do they give any kind of garantee they wont **** my paint


    thanx

    I normally charge between £50 and £80 to do a whole car, depending on size, colour, any damage, etc.
    However thats a private job, a bodyshop could be alot more but they will honor it. (Though i haven't damaged any car i've mopped)

    Blimey £50 for a full car polish and detail! That is cheap, I wouldnt do it that cheap!

    As said you will get a lot more satisfaction over doing it yourself buddy.

    Try www.detailingworld.co.uk often bits for sale there, or get the new Megs G220!

    I normally charge £50 plus fuel costs (No point in travelling to bristol and not charging fuel as the vxr will use £50 in fuel to get there ). The only reason I charge that cheap is cos a) I'm hardly a professional detailer, I just do it in my spare time and b) I mostly do mates cars at the minute so mates rates kinda apply.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Ok so Kyle - is I got hold of a PC machine what polish is best to use to remove normal swirl marks and some scratches similar to the linea rossa that marc did?

    I have had a look on the meguiars site and too many polishes to choose from
    Handsfree fitting at very reasonable rates in the Hampshire area. Please PM for information.
