We are a premier valeting and detailing business. Our Head Valeter, Paul Smith, has 29 years experience in the trade. he has an extensive product knowledge and is verse in all application techniques.
Paul Smith has 28 years’ experience in the trade. He started his valeting career at 17 years old, working for M&S Arlington where he stayed for 5 years. M&S Arlington is an accident repair centre and coachworks, this is where he learnt all aspects of machine polishing and paint correction as well as interior valeting.
Paul went on to work for a car rental company. The inside of these vehicles would often come back tarnished and soiled, this is where he learnt to dress and repair scuffed plastic trims, remove stains and odours where speed, accuracy and high quality was expected.
A Citroen dealership was his next challenge, he was required to turn the old part exchanged vehicles into forecourt sales cars and preparing others ready for auction. He also worked with new vehicles, detailing them for the showroom which had to be of the highest quality.
This is where Paul got noticed by Russell Allingham, a highly experienced valeter and owner of a prestigious detailing company based in the Home Counties covering all of London, where he worked on high end luxury vehicles and super cars from the elite vehicle enthusiast, to some of the top names and celebrities. He acquired an extensive knowledge of products and techniques and was accredited by Zymöl to use their polishing and waxing products. He was also accredited by SuperGuard for ceramic coatings, interior waterproofing, soft top cleaning, renovation and protection.
Moving to Cornwall Paul met Steven Calvert the proprietor of Bridge Tools who was also operating a hand car wash & valet next to his Wadebridge store. Seeing an opportunity, they teamed up and Bridge Valeting was born in 2018 renovating and customising part of the shop for this purpose. Due to the success of the business we have now added a mobile valeting van so can come to you home for your convenience.
We have also become an accredited detailing centre for Autosmart and their high end MATRIX Ceramic Coatings. We only use the best quality chemicals, products and methods tailored specifically for what vehicle we are servicing.
