your number one car valeting specialist - mobile - 7 days a week
matt or frozen paint cars are a deliberate purchase and are also usually more expensive than standard paint. they look stunning and menacing but they also very specialised cleaning. matt black cars can not be waxed, indeed no silicone/wax product should really be used on any matt/frozen painted car. this means you need to be very careful when cleaning your paintwork and you need specialists to do this. we realise how hard it can be to get a showroom standard valet on matt black cars, where there is a need to clean the car to a high standard, whilst also doing so safely. that is not always possible with other companies. our specially designed matt black/frozen paint service is uniquely developed to valet any car make and model with this type of paint and is carried out by our autoglym trained valeters. normal polish, wax, sealant and clay can't be used on matt black or frozen paintwork unless it is specifically designed.
with matt/frozen paintwork you have chosen a paintwork where the matt appearance lends an especially precious rare metallic lustre to your vehicle. in comparison to conventional exterior colours with a gloss/metallic surface, the sculpture like character of the matt surfaces highlights the contours of your car.
cleaning and care is more difficult with a matt black/frozen finish. in order to avoid varnish damage, you can not use automatic car washes as they can adversely affect the paint finish. this can occur in a number of ways including scratches caused by sand, dust or other micro particles which deposit in the car's body surface.
you cannot use varnish cleaners or wax protection. these products are suitable exclusively for highly shiny surfaces. their use on vehicles with matt paintwork will lead to serious damage of the surface (i.e. glossy, dappled spots). the vehicle cannot be polished, as this can lead to glossiness and damage only specialist body repairs can handle.
our service includes careful preparation of the bodywork initially using a pressure washer, removing insect leftovers, bird excrement, resins, tar spots, fuel pollution and oils. we use soft clean and new pre-treated sponges for the washing process, having already removed from the surface contaminates and therefore avoid strong grating and rubbing.
our matt black/frozen paint exterior valet covers just the outside, with areas such as the outside of the vehicle, including all shuts.
the service takes one person between 2 and 4 hours to finish. the full specification is set out below. our optional extras are explained here but the autoglym hood clean and protection is the most popular option on this service.
this is the specification and area's we will complete, if an area is of concern is not listed, it is not covered but may be added as an optional extra, please ask for more details.
we have two type of clients that effect what level of pricing is applicable.
the standard pricing refers to a vehicle that is either cleaned for the first time by carvalet.co.uk, or has not been cleaned within 4 to 5 weeks of the last clean by carvalet.co.uk.
this is the same car that is cleaned by us within 4 to 5 weeks. it is the car that is identified not the client, as we have many clients with 4 to 5 cars each and so alternating cars would mean we're doing 1 car nearly every 6 months. you can alter the specification as often as you like between the regular services, but either the inside or the outside is not cleaned within 4 to 5 weeks, the normal price would apply.×

Reveal makes these very easy to summon and dismiss. The close button is simply an anchor with a unicode character icon and a class of
close-reveal-modal. Clicking anywhere outside the modal will also dismiss it.
Finally, if your modal summons another Reveal modal, the plugin will handle that for you gracefully.×
See? It just slides into place after the other first modal. Very handy when you need subsequent dialogs, or when a modal option impacts or requires another decision.×
We seperate cars into different category’s, this is dependant on the length of the car, if you need to find out what category select the option below.
