who am i?
My name is Ciaran. I founded CPM Detailing to combine my passion of cars and owning my own business. I am a dedicated, meticulous (bordering on OCD) professional Automative Detailer. Detailing is a relatively new term in the car industry – it basically means a superior service for cleaning, correcting and protecting vehicles.
I am fully trained and insured and operate a mobile service in and around Oxfordshire and Berkshire as well as working from my own unit at Chiltern Airfield (by the A4074 between Reading and Wallingford) where I can work on your vehicle in my own indoor Detailing studio.
These services will greatly enhance the look and feel of your vehicle, whilst making your vehicle easier to maintain with a highly hydrophobic coating. After the initial wash process the vehicle paintwork is decontaminated, chemically and by claying which will extract the embedded contaminates not otherwise removed from normal washing. Once the decontamination process is completed, the vehicle is then put through a paint correction process (machine polishing). This will remove approximately 60-95% of the swirl marks and light scratches (depending on level of correction chosen) which will greatly enhance the overall condition and appearance of the paintwork. Following on from the paint correction stages the vehicle will receive a ‘ceramic coating’.
The interior may also be cleaned and all leather surfaces conditioned and protected from transfer dye.
New Car Preparations are often overlooked. “It’s brand new! It shouldn’t need anything!”
Although you’re likely to be offered the in-house ‘paint protection packages’ with “5 years protection”, “no more polishing” and other such big claims, in reality, they offer poor value for money. These products are often applied incorrectly and over poorly prepared paint finishes as the in-house valet team are given strict timescales with minimal training on how to correctly prepare and protect your newly purchased pride and joy.
I can’t sell your car for you, but I can help you sell it by carrying out a presale valet / detail for you.
This will certainly increase the value of your car and will make your car stand out from others. If you are buying a used car and want to enhance the car’s appearance then spending some TLC will bring it back to something close to “new” again.
After your home, typically your vehicle(s) is your next largest expenditure. Preserve your investment with a regular maintenance detail. To get the best finish I use my own supplied ‘pure’ water which takes all the hardness and minerals out and aids me to give your vehicle a superior finish with no water spots.
