The Importance of Car Detailing Insurance

Car valeting and detailing is one of those industries where lower ends of the market have to cut corners to give customers prices that are too good to be true.

At a hand car wash or even a cheap mobile valeting service, corners are mainly cut by using inferior products and poor washing practices meaning that a cars paintwork has scratches inflicted on it each time it is washed.

However, one of the most alarming corners that is cut is the lack of insurance that these companies have. Cheaper car valeting services that have no insurance will more than likely not have the cash to pay for a potentially costly repair to your car if damaged. It is actually fairly easy to damage a car if you are not experienced in car detailing, some cases of damage we see are -

  • Paint and even sometimes windows scratched from a stone in a wash mitt
  • Alloy wheels damaged from incorrect use of wheel cleaner
  • Interior plastics scratched by vacuum tool
  • Speedometer scratched by a microfibre cloth
  • Pressure washer attachments firing in to the car body
  • Leather damaged by vacuum tool

The list goes on and on! We see hand car washes and cheap mobile valeting services as a false economy. Poor standard of work is one thing, but permanent damage to your car is another!

The fact is that it is not actually that hard to damage a car if you are inexperienced or even just by mistake, but what is important is that you have the peace of mind that should the worst happen you will not be expected to pay for the damage.

Definition Detailing are insured up to £1,000,000 for public liability and for up to £50,000 per claim for vehicles that we work upon. We see so many cases of damage by inferior car valeting services, dont let yours be next!
