Well written account and very professional approach Matt, both in the work, the previous "detailer" and rectifying the problem.

States on my website in the contact page "make the concious decision to research your detailer". I would prefer a potential customer to do this, do as much digging as you like, opposed to- how much? and the other guy quoted a lot less!!

I really enjoy reading about every detail you do, it's a real pity that this was correcting someone's mistakes. An excellent job as ever.

As you say, people should seek opinions/feedback on the detailers before using them. Glad I did! Well done in repairing the mistakes of inexperience with coatings!

A lot of the problem, as you say, is price!
I do high quality mobile car valeting, but I won't class myself as a detailer, despite customers stating that my attention to detail is excellent. But I get numerous people saying, "how much????, I can get it done elsewhere for a tenner"......they pay £50k+ for a car but won't pay for a quality valet!

Well done mate, there are way to many inexperienced people calling themselves detailers, had a machine polisher for Xmas, now I am a detailer.
