The day course was absolutely perfect

The day course was absolutely perfect, I honestly couldn’t fault any aspect. I learned a lot about car care and am very grateful for your professionalism. I will go online soon to place an order for some products. Kind regards, Andrew Fox.

1 day detailing training feedback

It was a fantastic day with Matt, the instructor, and I learnt lots of tips and tricks along the way. Matt was very approachable and made the day special with his informal ‘ask any questions’ style which for me was extremely valuable. The only part I would change is to add labels to some of the bottles and sprays so you could see what was inside them. It would also have been good to have had some hand-outs explaining the stages and products used and something on the day we could have added notes to. Otherwise a very worthwhile and enjoyable day 😀.
