    Default Know a trusted Valeter ??

    Hi All

    I have a black estate, and the paint has some swirls on it, I have looked around and what i have read is basically avoid some of the firms as they may cause more damage...



    With this in mind,
    Does anyone recommend a Valeter ?
    and the approx cost for inside and out and to de-swirl the paint?

    Near-ish to Stourbridge / Brierley hill - West Mids


    thanks...

    DV

    You need a detailer, not a valeter mate.

    Or, maybe there's a member on here near you with a machine polisher that you could come to some arrangement with..??

    Best place to start is detailingworld.co.uk...You can have a look at detailers past work and their results. I rang for quite a few quotes and for a full correction you are looking between £250 and £400 depending on what your cars like and who it is.
