How Much Time Will be Spent on My Car?

A Concours Detail typically takes over 35 hours of work (depending on car type, size and condition). As two detailers will be working on your car the actual elapsed time to complete the service will naturally be less than this but at least 3 or more days should be allowed for to ensure the right results.


How Much Will the Detail Cost?

Prices start from 850.00 but as this is a fully bespoke service, please contact us for a free quote for your specific vehicle.
