Waxstock shines on! (despite the weather)

As most of the UK witnessed a months rainfall in just a few hours, the third Waxstock, detailing show took place. Second time at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, Waxstock has definitely secured its place on the show calendar and made it a must visit for professionals and enthusiasts alike.

If you are new to the industry or an experienced detailer, there was something for you. Maybe a new tool, wax brand or technique that will save you time. Lots of experts on hand to offer advice and guidance, as well as stunning vehicles on display.

At this stage we are unclear if the attendance was higher than previous years, or if the weather forced people inside for shelter and warmth? But having made several attempts to walk around the show to absorb some of the previously mentioned attractions and catch up with customers, we simply didn’t have time and for the first time ever, we actually sold out of the seat lid. This has always been a “sideline” product, but returning customers and new ones, seem to appreciate the benefits.

All in all, from our point of view, Waxstock was a success, thank you for your support see you at the next one? Or maybe SEMA?

What is the true cost of a "cheap" car wash?

Almost every disused petrol station, supermarket car park or lay by in every town has one, the “cheap” carwash, but what is the true cost? How does the average valeter compete?

They cant beat them on price, but when you find out what the true cost of a cheap car wash is, you might just reconsider how you get your pride and joy cleaned.

We have a guide to “Scratch Free washing” on this website,  you can download it for free, (you don’t have to put in “your details” either). We understand that not everyone has the time or the inclination to wash their own vehicle, but if you have someone else clean your vehicle, you could use the information from the guide to help you recruit a suitable valeter/detailer.

A professional valeter/detailer will charge hundreds, sometimes thousands of pounds, correcting your vehicles paintwork, but a lot of these paint defects, scratches and swirls can be avoided.

A few pounds for a Scratch Shield suddenly seems like a bargain, it is certainly an investment that will pay for itself almost instantly.

Do it yourself or get someone else to do it, a few simple steps will help keep your paintwork in top condition and should prevent the need for expensive paint correction work. So what is the true cost of a cheap car wash? Potentially quite a lot! But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Take one long, cold and windy day in January, add in some talented and dedicated individuals, what do you get? The beginning of our new video. Its fair to say some fun was had too! The new, updated video will be released once edited, but we are confident that it will be, informative, entertaining and useful. We are aiming to show the one, two and three bucket systems, the advantages of the seat lid and the easiest way to achieve the best results. Its also worthwhile reviewing our winter survival guide, with heavy frosts and snow, its easy to forget about paintwork preservation!
