Car Scratch Repair A scratch on your car can be heartbreaking... but don't worry, often they can be polished out by machine for less than you think. Otherwise we have other methods for removing scratches which can help you avoid a body shop respray.

Supagard Our most popular Paint Sealant. Comes with a 3 year guarantee.. but our customers have found it can last longer. Maybe why this is why supagard is approved by all major manufacturers. Supagard maintains the appearance and value of your vehicle.

Alloy Wheel Refurbishment A good car can really be let down by scuffed, tarnished and tatty wheels. Replacing a whole alloy wheel can cost hundreds of pounds, but repairing the damaged area or refurbishing the whole wheel can cost a fraction of that amount.

Odour Removal We have a 99.9% success rate at removing all odours from vehicles. Our advance systems can deal with just about anything from car that have been smoked in, to car that have caught fire. Organic, bacteria and chemical spills are no problem - we clean up and stop smells dead.

Stone Chip Repair Stone chips are the most common kind of damage, especially for cars that do lots of motorway miles. Each chip in it's self is usually so small that people tend to overlook this kind of damage and just accept it as inevitable. But having stone chips repaired with the correctly matched paint can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of your car.

Paintless Dent Removal It's a method which can be used to completely remove dents in body panels without the need for filling and painting. By using metal leavers to get behind the panels, the dents can be gently massaged and removed.

Leather Repair and Recolouring This is an unusual service which is in high demand on executive cars, we offer repair and recolouring using only original Connolly techniques and materials, making our repairs more hardwearing than modern methods.

Cabriolet Valeting The roofs of convertible cars tend to show age more quickly than the rest of the vehicle as they are more delicate than normal exterior fittings. Both fabric and vinyl hoods are tough to keep clean and prone to fading. Fabric hoods can attract mould and moss, while the plastic rear windows often fitted on cabriolet vehicles can become cloudy and scratch easily.

Valeting & Car Care Trade secrets - Tip of the Day
Normally we would advise against using household products on your car - especially those from the kitchen, but with your car's interior there are lots 0f products that do work. The Kind of tricks that Aggie and Kim tell you also work. For example sprinkling bicarbonate of soda on your carpets an hour before you vacuum will help rid your car of stale smells. It's probably best not to put anything on your seats, instead wiping them with a damp leather or microfibre cloth removes much dirt. But if you test your seats to make sure they can be shampooed then you can use products like Vanish.
