Frequently Asked Questions


What is car detailing?

Car detailing is the restoration and protection of your vehicle’s paintwork, above and beyond even showroom condition. With the use of specialist tools, tried and tested cleaning products and paintwork protection products, car detailers focus on both restoration and lasting protection.

Car detailing restoration and protection covers the vehicle’s interior and exterior, utilising specialist techniques. Hard to reach areas, such as the engine bay, are also covered by hand.

What car detailing services do you offer at Diamond Details Manchester?

At Diamond Details, we offer a range of services to cater for you and your car paintwork’s need. Broadly speaking, we offer comprehensive car detailing packages and maintenance detailing packages, as well as ceramic coating and deep interior clean services.

Comprehensive Detailing Packages

Maintenance Detailing Packages

We also offer a yearly maintenance detail package which will entitle you to weekly washes, meaning 52 washes per year, to ensure your car detailing stays protected.

What’s the first stage of the detailing process?

Diamond Details Manchester offer a unique 3-Stage Touchless Clean as part of all detailing packages.  The specialist procedures, tools and products used in the detailing process ensure the safe removal of a plethora of hazardous substances, as part of these initial stages.

Thereafter, there are multiple options for protection, depending on customer and existing paintwork requirements.

What’s the difference between comprehensive detailing and maintenance detailing?

The main difference between comprehensive detailing and maintenance detailing is that of thoroughness. Essentially, both services promise to clean your car’s interior and exterior and then return it to showroom condition.

However, comprehensive detailing offers more thoroughness in two ways. Firstly, it additionally addresses hard to reach spots and, secondly, it focusses a lot more on paintwork.

Diamond Details offer maintenance detailing packages and comprehensive detailing packages. The only difference between the two is that paint correction is done using a machine in all comprehensive detailing packages. Furthermore, some maintenance detail packages include a hand polish and wax.

How does detailing improve on valeting?

An exterior valeting will usually consist of a simple wash, shampoo, clean, dry and maybe a polish or wax. On the other hand, detailers will use specialist tools and products, at various stages of the process, to ensure a more resplendent final result.

Diamond Details’ maintenance detail packages offer our unique 3-Stage Touchless Clean as standard. Moreover, they also offer a machine polish using tried and tested compounds.

A more resplendent final result, from detailing? How?

With a more detailed focus on the final results being manifest in the finish of the paintwork, car detailers use specialist tools and techniques to eliminate sub-surface imperfections.

From Diamond Details Manchester’s unique 3-Stage Touchless Clean, to machine polishers, abrasive polishes and pads, we ensure the elimination of swirls and holograms, which can blight even the most thorough of valets.

If my car is brand new, will it still need detailing?

Although you’d think otherwise, brand new vehicles’ “showroom condition” isn’t what it’s made out to be. Firstly, during long hauls and storage in a variety of climates and conditions, brand new vehicles are exposed to numerous airborne contaminants.

Secondly, upon arrival at the showroom, they may be exposed to a rudimentary wash, doing more harm than good. Thirdly, due to poor quality paint used by some car manufacturers, the ‘orange peel’ effect can take root prematurely.

Finally, even brand new vehicles lack the protection provided by the comprehensive detailing packages offered by Diamond Details Manchester. Our new ceramic coating service offers the perfect car detailing solution for new car buyers.

How long does car detailing take?

At Diamond Details the two comprehensive and maintenance detailing options we offer can take from one day to several days. Our SI – Level I Enhancement Detail takes one day, depending on the size of the vehicle.

Car detailing is a meticulous process, consisting of various stages, that cannot be rushed. Once your vehicle has received a comprehensive detailing, a regular and shorter maintenance detailing will help ensure lasting protection.
