Healey's is a family owned mobile valeting business based in Furzehill, Wimborne. It's me, Wayne Healey (that's me in the picture), who specialises in keeping all sorts of vehicles looking their best for our ever growing customer base. My first introduction into valeting was back in the 80s when I worked in a Mazda dealership owned by my Uncle, not only did this time forge my love for valeting and detailing cars but it helped me develop my love for race and sports cars, they were modern at the time, but are now ranked as 'Classic', I feel so old!
Whether you have a school runner, your pop to town car, a classic or a supercar, every one of our customers enjoys the same level of dedicated valeting service, many of our customers are now friends...
So if it's the full works or just a spruce up, boats, commercial, leather furniture or couches or paint enhancement, we don't mind, we're not fussy we just love a challenge, give me a call to discuss your thoughts...
Our valets can be done at your home, place of work or if it's easier at our studio @Unit 11. We offer 4 levels of care for your car:
1: Fine Shine. This is our entry level service and most popular with clients that have us visit on a regular basis. Whilst entry level, it offers great value for money and will leave your vehicle with a great showroom shine.
The outside of your car will be rinsed then washed with a wax shampoo, rinsed and dried with one of our freshly laundered micro fibre cloths. The wheels will be cleaned with non acidic wheel cleaner, rinsed and washed with shampoo*. The interior will be vacuumed and the hard surfaces cleaned with the appropriate cleaner, if you have a leather interior, leather cleaner will be used, the windows will be cleaned at this time as well.
Starting price £45.00
2: Full Shine. This is the valet we recommend if your planning to sell your car or you want to use it as part of your annual cleaning program. The detail includes the Fine Shine but in addition we remove tar spots and prepare the paint's surface more thoroughly in readiness for the 3 month wax application. The wheels are also deep cleaned to remove baked on brake dust where possible and then waxed to add protection. The interior is vacuumed and cleaned with appropriate cleaners and left smelling fresh again. We recommended this at least every 12 months
XL (5 seats) £200
XL (7 Seats) £250.
Along with our standard, if anything in this business is 'standard' valets we can tailor a valet to your requirements. We can just clean and protect the roof of your soft-top, clean and protect the leather in your car or home, brighten up dull and faded paintwork or just an outside wash if required, we really don't mind, being small is the key for us and it's that allows us to offer flexible solutions.
The buzz words in the car industry as far as paint protection goes are 'Ceramic Coatings'. These coatings offer extreme durability and gloss enhancement to your car's painted surfaces and with more car dealers offering the service but without the skilled applicators and lower grade solutions, car buyers are turning to professionals to coat and enhance their cars, be it secondhand or brand new.
After searching for a brand that suits our needs and more importantly one that thinks how we think and offers great customer service, we settled on Autotriz. A German manufactured product offering a hard 9H (remember your school pencil) ceramic silicate that resists bird droppings, acid rain, UV light and minor scratches whilst keeping your gloss looking great and making washing your car a joy.
The treatment needs an overnight stay in our secure unit to ensure sufficient cure times and to enable us to carry out all of the levels cleaning and paint enhancements needed before application can take place. Ask your local dealer how long and what they do when applying the coating they offer.
Prices start at £585.00 and include ceramic coating, wheel and carpet protection.
We are approved to use and recommend Colourlock leather care products, we have achieved some staggering results with worn out or torn leather seats so before you re-upholster, why not give us a call to see if we can help restore and save you money
