What’s the difference between car valeting and detailing?
The most noticeable difference between car valeting and car detailing is price. There are a number of factors that influence the cost of car valeting and detailing which include:
- Time – car detailing services can take anywhere between 1 day and 5 days where as most car valeting services are completed in 1 day or less
- Products and equipment – detailers typically use a wider range of products and equipment including electric polishing equipment and ceramic coatings
- Premises – valeters are more likely to be mobile or work outdoors, whereas detailers usually occupy a unit or studio where they complete their services
Another key difference between valeting and detailing, is that valeting services primarily focus on cleaning whereas detailing services primarily focus on car polishing (to enhance or correct paint defects such as light scratches and swirl marks) and paint protection. However there is a lot of crossover, and many valeters today now offer ceramic coating and polishing packages.
How long does car valeting take?
Car valeting services are usually completed same day. Some upgrades may take longer such as car polishing, ceramic coating and PPF.
