Red Plum Automotive

Car detailing is more than a car wash.

The process to do it correctly should take a minimum of 1.5 to 2 hrs. And can take up to two days, depending on the age and condition of the vehicle. It involves intense car cleaning and reconditioning of your vehicle, inside and out. We use only the best car cleaning and car detailing equipment and products plus qualified car detailing specialists to perform the work.

Car Detailing
Vehicle detailing and cleaning does not involve body repairs. We use the three-bucket car cleaning interior and exterior method. The three-stage car polishing (if needed) method and paint decontamination to remove scratches, swirls, bat, and bird dropping externally and a thorough all surface internal clean. We even clean the engine bay - every time. The result is like getting behind the wheel of a brand new car.

Why is car professional detailing essential?

Professional vehicle detailing and cleaning creates the most fantastic finish, protects the car's overall condition, and will help maintain its value. Not keeping your car clean and leaving damaged paint has the opposite effect, leading to costly repairs and a significant reduction in the value of your vehicle. Whether you want to maintain your car, prepare your vehicle for sale, or purchase a pre-owned car, Red Plum Vehicle Detailing guarantees your vehicle will look and feel new again.

Full Detail

From $600 (Half – Full Day)

A Full Detail restores your vehicle as near as possible to new. Paint correction is an integral part of this process.

What is involved in Paint Correction?
Paint Correction is the process of removing imperfections in a vehicle's finish and restoring it to a better than new finish. We follow the 3 Step system where a range of machine polishers and graded pads remove imperfections from the paintwork. A fully corrected vehicle will show only accurate reflections, and no swirl marks, scratches, or blemishes will be visible to the naked eye in sunlight.
