Every panel is measured to determine the depth of your clear coat. This allows us to guage how much we can safely remove when cutting and polishing.


Machine polishing could be the reset button that your car needs. All those swirls, light scratches and blemishes caused by public car washes and general usage can be minimised, if not removed; restoring the showcase shine that it once had!

We first start by thoroughly deep cleaning your car, ensuring it is free from contaminants. To read more about how we prep your vehicle, please see our Daily Detail package. Once the paintwork is squeaky clean, we can now start machine polishing.

Depending on the severity of the marks within the paint, several stages may be required. From just a simple refined polish, to a several stage cut and polish, a pre-inspection of the paintwork is required to tailor a plan specifically for your car.

As paint and lacquer combinations differ from car to car, and the severity of damage is different amongst vehicles, the perfect combination of pad and compound must be found. Some combinations may not cut and polish enough, and some may take too much away than required. Therefore, a small test patch is done to ensure the right pad and compound combination is used on the paint.

Once the paintwork is pristine with a mirror like finish, it is recommended to protect the paintwork from the elements around you. Premium Waxes or Ceramic coatings can then be applied, giving your car hydrophobic properties and a deeper shine. Please see our Ceramic Coating package for more information.

Why do you Machine Polish my vehicle?

From unsafe hand/automatic car washes, or even brand-new factory sanding defects, the clear coat can contain lots of swirls and scratches. These defects prevent light from bouncing directly back at you, giving the appearance dull and flat paintwork. To remove these imperfections, we machine polish the surface, removing microscopic layers of clear coat; which ultimately leaves the paintwork swirl free – with a mirror like finish as light is able to properly bounce back at you.

We utilise dual-action polishers, which offers a consistent and effective abrasive effect on the paintwork, unlike traditional hand polishing which takes much longer and often leads to an uneven finish.

What’s the difference between a Single Stage and Multi Stage Machine Polish?

Dependent on the severity of the paintwork defects, several stages of polishing may be required. For heavier swirled vehicles, a dedicated cutting stage is used to purely remove these paint defects. However, due to the abrasive nature of our cutting compound, the clear coat may look slightly hazed and not very clear. Because of this, a polishing stage is used to clear up the finish, resulting in a mirror-like shine; this is our multistage machine polish.

If swirl marks are barely present or aren’t that deep, a single stage polish is enough to remove these defects and give you a pristine finish – a cutting stage is not required due to the lack of depth with the swirls.

Why do you do a test patch on the paintwork?

The type of paint on vehicles can wildly vary, especially with older cars that used 2pac acrylic enamel paint. When carrying out paint correction, we want to remove the least amount of clear coat as possible, but still achieving a mirror like finish. Therefore, we test both pad and compound combinations to find the least aggressive method for the paintwork – harder paints require more cutting, softer paints require less.

How long do you need my vehicle for?

On average, we require 3-4 days in order to correct the paintwork. The time taken usually depends on the size of vehicles, as an SUV would take longer than a smart car as there is a higher surface volume.

What parts of the vehicle do you Machine Polish?

We aim to polish all visible surfaces, this includes standard body panels, all glass surfaces, wing mirrors, head lights and rear lights.
