Machine Polishing Paintwork Correction

We can machine polish away wash marks, light scratches and dull paintwork, buffing it to a high shine and making your car's paintwork look as good, or even better than when it left the showroom.

If you have wished that your car still looked as highly polished as the day you bought it we can restore the glossy shine with machine polishing, removing dull, oxidized paintwork, wash marks, fine scratches and etching from bird lime.

Car Polishing Service

Car Polishing Service
It's our boast that we can polish a car so that it looks better than it left the factory.

Paintwork correction is and art, and we have been machine polishing cars for over 30 years and have tried all the old traditional methods as well as the latest technological pads and compounds, developing our own techniques for different levels of service.  Whether you require wet-sanding to remove deep scratches, a light single stage polish, or a three stage high-gloss finish, we can tailor our service to suit your needs.

Every time you wash your car, the fine layer of dirt which covers the paintwork will cause light abrasions as you try to remove it. No matter how careful you are, over time very light micro-scratches appear, causing your car to lose its lustre. When they catch the light they look like spider webs and your car no longer has a smooth glassy appearance.

  • Removes washing marks
  • Removes swirl marks from previous machine polishing (i.e. body-shop repairs)
  • Revives dull and oxidized paintwork
  • Safe to use on metallic paint (We still get asked, even though this hasn't been an issue for 30 years)
  • Makes your car easier to clean
  • A shiny car stays cleaner for longer as water and dirt just rolls off.

Our High Gloss Polishing System

Our  system which can be used either in one, two, four or six stage buff and gives exceptional results for the treatment and restoration of faded, dull or scratched paintwork.

We can restore even the most faded and dull paintwork to a 'nearly new' condition. It's also great for reducing small scratches which haven't broken the base coat, such as those caused by Car Washes and hedgerows.

Please note, with these services we are following a safe formula of buffing. It will remove oxidization and reduce scratches. For deeper scratches and blemishes, see our Scratch Repair & Removal page.

This is just the beginning!

Once your car has been polished and looking as good as new, it's time to decide how you are going to keep it looking that way. While there's nothing wrong with a good coat of wax, we recommend "glass coating" with a Ceramic Nano-Coating for the best in car paint protection.

Will Polishing my car remove all scratches?

Some scratches are too deep in the paint's surface might be too deep to polish out. However, on the whole, machine polishing your paintwork will remove light scratches and reduce the visibility of deeper scratches by taking off sharp edges which catch the light. Machine polishing will always give a huge improvement and satisfy the average customer. We won't promise perfection, the Pareto principle comes into play, there are diminishing returns, and we aim to give you the most bang for your buck.

I had my car machine polished a few months ago by somebody else, and now it looks awful.

When using a rotary polisher, you can be removing scratches, while putting in very fine micro-scratches which look like a smear. At the time it's done, these 'buffer marks' are hidden and filled by the oils and silicones which are in the buffing compound or wax they put over the top. Many waxes contain fillers to fill scratches, and micro-bead diffusers to defuse the light, all designed to hide scratches. After a while, these products evaporate in the sun, and polishing marks are revealed. We avoid buffer marks by using random-orbital polishers and increasingly fine pads and polish. We also wipe down the car with alcohol to remove any compounds which might hide micro-scratches, so we can check our work. The ceramic coatings we are known for DO NOT hide scratches, we have to be doubly sure we aren't creating any.

Why do you polish brand-new cars?

Brand-new cars are seldom completely brand new. They might have been at the dealership for a few weeks, been on some test drives, been washed a few times. And so they may have picked up some washing marks, they may have been coated in thick waxes which hide scratches. Besides this, the paintwork on a brand-new car is raw - self levelling paint is pretty shiny, but on a microscopic level, the surface will be rough. Polishing it will make it even shinier.

Can you polish out bird poop stains?

Bird droppings are corrosive, they will etch into your paintwork, and worse still, the corrosive compounds stay in your paint and can be re-activated when it gets wet. This means the etching can go deep. We can often polish out these etched marks, but it is important to remove bird droppings as soon as you see them. We also recommend keeping a remover and neutralizing product in your car to combat the corrosive effects.

Why are you recommending I have my car polished, it looks fine to me.

Your car may not look too bad, but you will notice the difference. Micro-scratches can be hard to see unless under the right light, but they are there, making your car look dull. There's also oxidization, causing a cloudy haze on your paintwork. You will notice the difference once the car has been polished.
