As you can see around our website, we use the size of your car as a guide for pricing purposes.  This is because - generally - smaller cars require less time to detail than larger cars, as you'd imagine.  Detailing is a time/labour intensive process, and all our pricing is calculated with this in mind.

As a rough guide:

SMALL: Smart ForTwo, Aston Martin Cygnet
MEDIUM: VW Golf, Porsche Cayman / 911, BMW 135M
LARGE: BMW M4, Mercedes C63 AMG, Ferrari F12berlinetta, Aston Martin Vanquish
XL / 4x4: BMW M6, Range Rover Sport, Mercedes S63 AMG

In some cases, there can be exceptions when a car has complicated shapes or an unusual mix of surfaces (requiring more time).  As an example: the exposed suspension, the chrome surfaces, the exposed exhaust system, the vinyl windows and other assorted features of a Caterham mean it's going to take far more time and effort to work on than a new supermini.  Similarly, a classic Jaguar E-Type is going to require vastly more attention and skill to bring up to standard than a nearly-new F-Type.  Please feel absolutely free to contact us if you would like clarification over how we'd classify your vehicle.

Before choosing your package, it can be a good idea to bring your car to us for an inspection - especially if there are any unusual defects requiring our attention such as deep scratches, leather wear, industrial fallout, tree sap, overspray, bird excrement etchings and so on. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions throughout, and we'll do our best to help you understand as much as we can about what we do and how we do it. 

We offer three types of inspection:

  • 1 hour vehicle inspection with KDS staff member: £49.95 + VAT (refunded from your final bill)
    This will be performed by one of the KDS team, talking you through your vehicle’s imperfections, running you through the processes and stages that will happen to your car, and explaining just how much of the defects we can correct in our various packages.
  • 1 hour vehicle inspection with Kelly Harris: £79.95 + VAT (refunded from your final bill)
    As above, however our MD and founder Kelly Harris will take you through the inspection personally, giving you the direct benefit of his 25 years of experience. It'll cover all aspects including paint, detailing, wheels, dents, interior recondition etc.
  • Full written report including photographs: £295 + VAT
    Be it for your own use, or perhaps in response to a request by a vehicle manufacturer or paint shop, we will document your car's condition with analytical photographs and written evaluations across all requested areas.

Please note, your car will need to be reasonably clean for us to perform an inspection. Cars that arrive too dirty to inspect will need our basic wash first.

With the inspection complete, we will have a sound understanding of what we can expect to acheive on your car, in what timescale, and at what price. If you wish to proceed once you've decided on the best package to suit your car and budget, all we ask for is a non-refundable deposit (£125 + VAT) to secure your booking.
