I hope we are all having a great Christmas.
Below are some updates you may need to know as a customer for 2019.
The cards that were meant to be sent out to some of this years customers with a prize draw were sadly a little delayed in reaching myself and so they should be with customers soon. I haven't forgotten about it!
Water supply and gazebo
It has been apparant in recent months that the demand for me to bring water along for my lower end services, where there are a few to do in one day, is higher than the need for me to bring a gazebo along.
So the decision was made to purchase a larger water tank at the expense of the space the gazebo normally takes up in the van. I will now be able to do three or possibly four Pro Washes from the tank as opposed to just two before in one day, but mains water will still be preferred especially in the longer days where there will be a few to do in one day. The water tank is intended for customers who do not have an outside tap near the vehicle.
The gazebo will still be available to use on "Enhancement Detail - One Stage Machine Polishing" but only if the customer can provide mains water; the water tank would have to be removed from the van in this case. However in all honesty I prefer to be doing detailing indoors for best effect, and anything involving Two Stage Machine Polishing, Ceramic Coating or more must be done indoors.
As you can tell I am doing my best to bring services in such demand to you from my Peugeot Partner van for the time being. Maybe one day a larger van may be in order but for now I must use what I have to best effect.
As usual all pricing is subject to periodic review, and there may be some minor adjustments for 2019. If this is the case they will be published on the website before the 4th January. For the most part, the pricing structure should remain unchanged from Autumn 2018 pricing. If you have not checked current pricing recently please do as I like to avoid awkward conversations. I would like to give a polite reminder to customers that pricing may be subject to change as my operating costs change and business performance is reviewed, especially as the business continues to grow and focus on providing a service based on quality and keeping up to date with current tooling, techniques and standards of work.
Early next year I will be attending some advanced training courses as part of ongoing professional skills development. This may lead to extra services being available as the year goes on, and this will be posted here when that time may be. For now though, I will keep those plans quiet!
January is looking busy considering the time of year, as it may seem - I am always kept busy so please plan in advance and if you intend to book please leave as much notice as possible to avoid disappointment.
Thank you for your support in 2018, and wishing you the best for the new year.
