Our Car Detailing Testimonials

I was looking for a specialist Kenolon Ceramic Shield detailer and assumed i would have to travel the length of the country to find a really good one. Fortunately, i came across John at the Gleaming Car Company who was local to me and i have been absolutely over the moon with the results. Not only does my Alfa Quadrifoglio look fantastic but Johns professionalism and his attention to detail makes it easy for me to ensure that not only will I be continuing to bring my cars back to him but to unreservedly recommend his services to anyone considering detailing their car.

Excellent service. So glad I stumbled across the Gleaming Car Co by coincidence and thought I’d try him out. So happy I did as my car has never been in such good care when it comes to the paintwork maintenance and interior! Amazing prices, professional finish and friendly character also! Would highly recommend to family and friends around the area as the Gleaming Car Co go above and beyond my expectations every single time! Can’t wait for the next visit

I'd had Kenolon ceramic sealant on a previous car so I knew the product but this was the first time I'd used John. He was excellent - really helpful, put so much effort in and the result was superb. He prepped and coated our two Minis over two days and couldn't have done a better job. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend John to anyone.

Thank you John for working on my X3.The car was covered in swirls and light scratches and John did a 2 stage enhancement and finished off with Kenolon Ceramic Shield. The cars paint work is now looking lovely and will not be going to another roadside car wash. Thank you again John,I know you worked long and hard for 2 days on my car.

John was a pleasure to communicate with throughout and arrived on time for the standard interior clean that I had booked for my 1990 Mk2 Golf. He did a superb job and made the 28 year old upholstery look brand new! Highly recommended and I look forward to using his services again

Absolutely over the moon with the service received. John arrived exactly at the pre arranged time and discussed the process with me. I'd on my taken delivery of the car 4 days before and didn't think it was possible for it to look that much better than it already did but was amazed with the results. Thoroughly recommend John and 'Gleaming Car Co'

I honestly don't know what we would do without John. He does a fantastic job on both our cars and he is the only person we would trust. Fantastic service.

"It was so nice to meet you and I could not be happier with the result,
thank you so much for your hard work and attention to detail. Its such an
amazing result. Youve made the paintwork look rich and glossy, its
beautiful. And the inside is great- now Ive felt the difference I can see
what you mean about 'sticky products'!! Youve undone my rubbish work and
made it feel like new! I just keep going out to look at it! Cant believe how good it looks!"

"Even my unobservant son commented that my car looked
brand new last night!"

I would recommend this service without hesitation. An A1 result! The effort put in didn't reflect the price. Thank you!!

I recently took delivery of a new VW Polo from VW Swindon who had made a complete hash of the preparation. To cut a long story short John took me through the various options I had to restore the black bodywork to the condition it should have been delivered in and then set to work! He has a meticulous eye for detail and discovered a variety of issues with the car and kept me informed as to how he would correct them. The final result after a large amount of painstaking hard work was outstanding and I look forward to John coming out to us soon for more work on other vehicles we own. I can do nothing but praise John’s efforts and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

John came at very short notice yesterday to valet my car that we need for our wedding on Saturday. He did an excellent job and got me out of a situation caused by another company failing to turn up despite been booked weeks earlier. I highly recommend The Gleaming Car Co.

In what would have taken me more than a day, John was able to complete a deep clean of the exterior of my vehicle, leaving it with a lasting showroom finish it has only ever had once before. In only three hours "my pride and joy" shone like new. He went out of his way to fit me into his busy schedule and would recommend his expert services to everyone who thinks they know how to wax their car. Go, on. Both you and your car will be grateful!

Absolutely Fantastic,  John came out just to do our Corsa, And what an incredible job he did. He had a cancellation that afternoon so we asked if it was possible to do our sons Golf. Wasn't a problem for him, he was with us all day and both cars look amazing. Thank you so much. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Fantastic! My A5 was detailed yesterday. It was over 2yrs since John had been round and my car certainly needed doing. John spent 7hrs on it and wow what a result. Cheers, see you again! (sooner)

I had my first full valet done by John last week. What a fantastic job!! An extremely thorough valet that left my car looking like new! I normally visited the drive thru places - never again!! I'd much prefer to pay a bit more and get a very decent job done!! Thanks John, when can you come again!!!!

Very professional and results are fantastic.
John arrived in the morning to detail my BMW 335D. I wanted a paint protection on the vehicle and he recommended the Aegis System. The results are fantastic. The car looks outstanding. John is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work so you know the results he aims for are always of a high standard. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you John and The Gleaming Car Company

Thank you for the fantastic valet on my new Renault car, so wonderful to see the paintwork shining like a mirror.. Looking forward to having a regular valet and I will certainly be recommending you to
as many people as I can.  I understand that you arrived spot on time, that impresses me straight away. Thank you John.

John arrived promptly at 8.30am on Tuesday 28th January. He set to work straight away whilst the weak winter sunshine struggled to peer through the dark threatening clouds. Within the hour, it was raining mercilessly. John struggled on valiantly, but eventually had to admit defeat and left wet and bedraggled, promising to return the following morning to complete the job. Bang on time the next morning, Wednesday 29th January, John reappeared, and immediately set to work again. This time, the Gods smiled favourably on us, and it remained dry, but bitterly cold, until the job was done. And what a job it was too. My car shone proudly on this bleak winter day. John is a true professional. Totally reliable, hard working and an undeniable expert in his field. I am so pleased I discovered the Gleaming Car Company. If you value your car, give it a real treat, call John and let him transform it into a masterpiece of automotive delight. Thanks John, you did a BRILLIANT job!!!

Thank you so much for the fabulous job you did of cleaning our Skoda Octavia on Saturday. Thanks for being prepared to dodge the appalling weather to get the job done in the limited time we had available, for cheerfully perservering in the cold and drizzle, and for your expertise in getting the driver's seat clean after three years of dirt and stains from wearing a waxed Barbour to drive in. It looks fantastic. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you and your services to others.

John provided my first Valet experience recently; he was punctual, polite and careful throughout in providing a a full valet including dealing with a few awkward marks.
I made John a coffee and left him to it - I have full confidence and trust in him that I will definitely use him again and shall recommend him to friends and family. The car is spotless such that it’s a shame to drive it!

John - see you again in a few months!

John turned up at my address at the arranged time despite it being a very cold day. He then worked continuously for over four hours, turning my very neglected car into showroom condition. Both my-self and my wife are very impressed and would recommend his service. It really is second to none. John is a very hard worker and most of all very honest and reliable.

If you cherish your car and are concerned about asking someone to detail it for you then I can highly recommend John. The care and attention to detail he bestowed on my Porsche left me with a very high level of confidence my car was in very safe hands. Thanks John for a brilliant job today.

Hi John, just a quick note of thanks for the sparkling job you have done on my car. I cannot believe the difference in colour it shines like a new car, it must be some sort of voodoo technology you have ,as I have never had a used car that looks new before. Thank you for all your advice and hard work its very much appreciated john. Thanks again.
