Detailing Service Upgrade Options

Engine Bay Detail

An Engine Bay Detail is the ideal detail to clean, cleanse and protect the beauty of the mechanics beneath the bonnet. The engine compartment is fully cleaned using a selection of detailing brushes to treat all areas. Careful use of steam is used to safely break down dirt/grime from intricate areas; excess water is removed using a warm air dryer. All plastics, rubbers and chromes are protected and dressed. Under bonnet paint and wing edges are also cleaned and protected.

Interior Detail

An interior detail will dramatically improve and protect the appearance of any interior regardless of age or condition. Using premium products and meticulous cleaning an interior is transformed back to a fresh and revitalized standard.

Wheels Off Detail

Cleaning your wheels while they are on your vehicle does not always provide a thorough clean. Its recommended to remove all 4 wheels, so they can be clean thoroughly front and back, removing all the built-up brake dust, road grime and contamination.

Outside of our standard range of detailing package, we are able to cater to all of our client’s requirements. If we do not have an off the shelf package that works for you, we will customise it to suit your every need.

The Surgery is very proud to be a part of the New Zealand CarPro approved detailing network. This has allowed us to offer our customers the complete range of Cquartz ceramic paint protection coating from CarPro. There is a level of protection available for everyone, from Cquartz UK and Cquartz Professional all the way up to the flagship coating, Cquartz Finest Reserve.

CarPro Cquartz Professional

CQuartz Professional harnesses the power of advanced nanotechnology.  Each silica (quartz) atom has multiple fluorocarbon molecular bonds, which create a high-density 3D structural coating matrix.  Once bonded to the surface of your paint, CQuartz Professional not only protects the gloss and depth created by your professionally accredited CarPro installer, it actually enhances it!  Once cured, CQuartz Professional forms a dense, durable coating that protects the paint and retains a high gloss for years to come!

CarPro Cquartz Finest Reserve

CarPro Cquartz Finest Reserve utilizes an entirely new technology built on a complex hybrid blend of quartz infused epoxy nanotech particles.  This Next-Gen technology utilizes an advanced hybrid nanostructural composition, which bridges the gap between ceramic and organic materials, creating an extremely high gloss, dense nano-coat.  This results in an extremely glossy, durable, thick coating of protection that lasts for many years, with advances in a variety of attributes and unlike anything that has come before it!

Detailing Services FAQ ?

 What Is The Difference Between Grooming And Detailing?

Grooming services are usually based on a low-cost high volume wash and wax aimed at the masses. However, there are now an increasing number of detailing services being offered to more discerning customers, we tend to be able to offer specialist techniques such as paint correction and the use of higher quality products for surface protection. These services are more time consuming and require a much greater degree of skill, meaning that they are more expensive. However, because the value of used vehicles is greatly affected by their aesthetic condition, this work usually pays for itself, particularly on prestige and performance vehicles.

 My Car Is Brand New, Should I Get It Detailed And, If So, What Would The Benefits Be?

Sadly, its common for brand new vehicles to be delivered with defects in the paint, such as marring and buffer trails leftover from the production line. It is equally disappointing that many dealerships do not have the time or skills available on-site to correct these defects prior to handover; instead all that is typically offered is a basic groom (which often does more harm than good) and a poor quality ‘lifetime’ protection package. If these thoughts concern you, we are happy to take on new car deliveries and ensure that you receive your vehicle in perfect condition with the very best surface treatments applied from the outset. Protecting the bodywork and alloy wheels properly from day one will ensure that they remain easy to keep clean over the first six to twelve months of ownership, and will also help to prevent the harmful acids in everyday contaminants (such as bird droppings and bug remains) from etching the paint.

 The Paint On My Car Is Full Of Swirl Marks And Fine Scratches, Is It To Late To Be Corrected

It is never too late to improve the appearance of sound paint by careful machine polishing. In cases where sub-surface defects are very severe, the limiting factor is always paint depth. If the defects lies within the uppermost layer of paint (either the pigment layer in older single stage paint systems or the clearcoat in modern paint systems) then there is a very high likelihood of achieving a level of correction of 95% or more. However, in cases where such defects penetrate to no more than 20% of the depth of the uppermost layer of paint, there’s a very high likelihood of achieving a near perfect level of correction. Indeed, many of our customers are often amazed at the degree to which we are able to restore heavily swirled finishes, to the extent that we almost always do away with the need for any additional bodyshop attention.

 If I Have My Paint Corrected, Will The Swirl Marks Ever Reappear?

Keeping paint in a swirl free condition requires 2 key points to be followed. The first is the use of decent car care products, and the second is good technique. We are always happy to offer detailing advice in order to ensure that our customers are able to safely and effectively maintain the finish we leave them with.

 Do You Sell Any Of The Products You Use Professionally?

All of the CarPro products we use are available to buy at The Surgery. We only use and sell products that we know to work well based on our professional experience. This greatly benefits our customers as they always know they are buying products that are proven in the professional field. We are also able to provide our detailing customers high-quality maintenance kits.
