The UBV institute of detailing is based in the St Helens area of Merseyside (WA9 postcode)

We have a luxury studio that we mainly use as an education centre to teach and inspire up and coming valeters and detailers from all over the UK, Spain, and even America and Australia.

Our studio boasts every single piece of polishing, depth reading, heating and lighting equipment worth having, meaning we can undertake any level of detail that is presented to us.

We pride our studio as one of the safest in the industry, so you can rest assured knowing your car is in great care.

We have 24-hour security guards monitoring the industrial estate we operate on. We also have motion sensors, cameras, reinforced slam shutters and twin gates on the front yard area outside. We treat the vehicles in our care as our own, so let us look after your pride and joy!

Single stage enhancement
Removing 70%-90% of paint swirling and defects

(OUR SINGLE STAGE ENHANCEMENT CAN ALSO BE DONE ON A MOBILE BASIS IF REQUIRED. WE DO HAVE AN EXTENSIVE MOBILE SETUP TO ENSURE RESULTS ARE IMPECCABLE).

You will be advised on anything that needs that bit more, for example heavier cuts/multi-stage in certain places. Or, we can add focus to areas that make you most unhappy about your car.

Firstly we will wash and decontaminate the entire vehicle, safely dry it off and get it inside our studio to prep for machine polishing. Within the vehicles time with us, massive results will happen. This package is designed to brighten up your pride and joy, or remove light paint swirls commonly caused by cheap car washing.

To finish off, we would generally opt for a good spray sealant backed up with a warm glowing hard wax to finish and protect the vehicle. Ceramic coating can be added at an additional cost.

Please note: Interiors are not included in this price. While it’s with us, we are open to doing an interior deep clean at a discounted rate, seeing as the car is with us for some time.

2 stage correction detail

The vehicle is firstly washed and decontaminated in preparation for machine polishing.

Once our wipe down is done, we delve deep into the heavier cutting stages, removing the paintwork’s deeper defects and scratches. We then refine back with a lighter cut to remove any heavy cutting induced hazing to reveal the paints full potential.

We aim this option at the rare beauty with some age related marks! Can’t bring yourself to sell the vehicle? Sentimental attachment to it? Well, let me make it feel brand new again.

Once again, this package is just for the vehicle’s exterior, and an interior deep clean can be added for an extra cost.

Ceramic hard coating lasting 3-5 years comes as standard with this package. We feel that we must add the highest form of protection to your pride and joy, having already done that much work.

Time required – 2 days

The master detail

Our highest level of detail, usually chosen by car show attending clients or barn find type vehicles.

This is literally a full week-long overhaul of a vehicle. Stripping whatever parts needed from the car to achieve the highest level of cleaning and detail possible.

Interior out and wheels off. Paintwork is sanded back (if we feel it’s needed), cut right to its depths, and refined right through the stages to achieve the most glass-like finish possible.

If you check out the @autofinesse youtube channel, you’ll be able to search and find historical details that the UBV team have played a part in. The level you see us perform on that video is the level of detail you’ll get with this option.

I have no sales pitch other than it’s a no holding back restoration detail!

Pricing starts at £1500 and shall be negotiated upon the vehicle itself.

Detail what you bring!

Come and spend the day down at the UBV institute of detailing…

This package was inspired by Auto Finesse, our good friends and associates within the industry! They offer an exceptionally well-known package where you take your own vehicle and spend a day detailing it with one of their onsite professionals.

So, we bring you our version!

Firstly, you’ll wash and decontaminate your car with one of our onsite professionals. Allow us to show you our way of deep cleaning the exterior and interior and what products we use and recommend for impeccable and efficient results!

Let’s get your car inside, then move forward with safe drying methods, clay baring, and some safe protection processes (waxes and sealants). After that, we can delve deep into the interior deep cleaning stages and even interior protection!

Ahh, but you wanted to use polishers? Course you did… it’s not professional of us to let you loose on your own car with a polisher, nor will you learn a thing. So how about while your cars sat looking all pretty under our studio lights, we take you into our polisher and product room (the UBV artillery). We’ll set up a test bonnet and talk you through all forms of polishers, their uses and pad and product combinations.

(This is not a training day. If you require in-depth one to one knowledge on correcting paint and business help, this isn’t for you).

Priced at £395 per person.
