Frequentley Asked Questions & Information
We here at Auto Detox Detailing are open & honest about our detailing, if you have a question that isn’t covered below reach out & ask away
Choosing Barry to detail your car is so much more than paying for a valet, you are paying for an established (since 2005) full time detailer to do a professional, out standing job & experience an amazing result that only comes from years of experience. Spending money on what you value is extremely important, so why not buy quality & professionalism. The time taken on each stage of the job is amazing. Barry does not rush anything, if you have spoken to him on the phone or visited him at his unit you will know he has time to explain everything & asks you questions to get you the right program for your vehicle. He will not palm you off & will not hurry you out of the door. Everyone is unique, each car is unique & each detail is unique. He is not a salesman & does not have clever tactics to get business. From the time you get in touch with him you will deal with Barry, until he walks you around your finished car going through the things that have been done at the very end of the detail, you will deal with Barry
No, due to Covid & the restrictions this has applied to all our lives I have had to suspend this service until further notice, please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this might have on you.
Only Barry is the answer to both questions. He doesn’t have any employees, he does all the work himself. Your car will only ever be taken outside for the wash stages & once back inside in the premises will stay there until its collected.
Yes ! Barry has been trained & certified by RUPES in all aspects of all their machines, polishes & sanding techniques, to get you the best result from your detail. Trained & certified by Kamikaze Collection, in the correct application technique for all their coatings. Which enables Barry access to their certified detailer only products, this also means being taught to apply the ceramics properly in a controlled environment which means you get the best durability from the application too.
Yes very easy. The unit is located on the out skirts of Cannock, Staffordshire. M6 junction 11 is 5 minutes away, M6 Toll T7 is 2 minutes away, there is a local train station which goes straight to Birmingham New Street & Wolverhampton station has a fast Virgin service to London & is 25 minutes away.
No ! Barrys business is not built on this type of work, He prides himself on true paint correction. Which means safe removal of the defects present without the use of masking agents/polishes, this is called true paint correction. The finish you leave with on your cars paintwork is the true finish & will not drop back after a couple of washes. This is why paint correction takes days not hours to achieve, Rome wasn’t built in a day & paint correction isn’t either.
The main advantage of working in his own unit is the weather has no bearing on your detail what so ever, if its forecast bad weather on your collection day I’ll work with you & if I can, will always try to keep the car over night so you can collect the following day when it’s dry. In over 6 years at the present premises he’s only had to cancel 1 job due to deep snow.
Unfortunately no, Barry will help you with a wash routine which he typed up. He will show you how to look after the ceramic coating & get the best out of your detail with links to products like wash mitts, drying towels, ceramic top up products to help get the best durability out of your coating & He will always be available to give advise if you need it in the future even if its you fancy a new glass cleaner, just ask.
Yes, there are 3 insurance policies in place for Barrys business. He’s fully insured to drive any car with full road risks (which is the traders policy equivalent to fully comprehensive) up to £100,000 & to keep the car in the unit over night. In the event of your car exceeding this limit he can raise that cover amount with his insurers with a simple email, there is an additional cost which will be outlined in your quote. £5,000,000 public liability cover & insured to work on your car too. IF your car gets dmaged due to the detail that’s covred too (defective workmanship cover, thats a yukky ppolicy name…) His scissor lift is insured too which is inspected twice a year as part of the policy.
To secure your dates in the diary a deposit of £50 or £100 is required (depending on the detail) at the time of booking. A receipt will be emailed to you along with a detail confirmation outlining works to be carried out. Which he’ll ask you to read thoroughly & confirm everything is correct.
If you cancel within 7 days of your booking the deposit is non-refundable.
If you need to move the booking before this time period he will be more than happy to find a convenient date for you.
Deposit payment can be made by bank transfer or cash. Final balance can be made via bank transfer or cash.
Balance is to be paid in full at the end of the detail, prior to car leaving the unit, without exception.
