Car Detailer coming to switzerland

following on from the "where to find a car detailer thread"

I contacted a detailer who is a member of the MG owners forum I am also a member of, the other members of the forum rave about him, He is prepared to come over and have a busmans holiday detaling cars as he goes.

For those that don't know deatiling is more then just a wash and wax! your car will end up looking better then new, the paint correction gets rid of all the little imperfections.

obviously to make it worth his while he would need a few people lined up, and what with the pound being so weak its a perfect opportunity, I don't mind organising it all, let me know via PM if your interested

I have 3 people interested at the moment

Oh and I have no connection at all with the company!

More details below

Thanks


for the full works inside and out is 280, that is my top service, for just the outside only paint correction is around 150 depending on what car it is, all my prices and what you get are more detailed on my website so if you would like a look through that and then you can see what you would like: http://stevescleenz.co.uk/detailing_treatments.htm .

Re: Car Detailer coming to switzerland

OK we have 4 possibles at the moment, so it looks like this may be a go'er

Just waiting for him to get back to me on the minimum numbers he would need.

Also had a couple of questions,

Will he travel to other areas? everything is built into the van, so I'd say yes! he is coming from the uk and can only do 1 car at a time, and that is going to take 8 hours+ so travelling around isn't really going to be an issue.

That will make two of us in Basel, so hopefully worth his time to come up here as well as Zurich.

Re: Car Detailer coming to switzerland

Not this time, but when my car's a bit older and dirtier I'd love to do something like this. Good initiative!

Re: Car Detailer coming to switzerland

Actually on second thoughts I'd be interested.

Assume he is fully insured in case? Car is a Murcielago SV so I don't want to run the risk
