Single Stage Detail

Our Single Stage Machine polishing package is designed as a step up from our Refresh Detail. 

Single Stage Detail Liverpool Merseyside

Where as our Refresh is carried out over 2 days, this package is considerably more in depth and we would require your vehicle for 3 or 4 days.  We follow the same outline as stated for our Refresh detail however with the extra time in our pocket we can push each aspect of the Refresh even further to achieve better results overall.  We carry out the same level of polishing with a cutting/finishing compound best suited to your vehicles paint type with more of a focus on defect removal.  Conservatively would expect to see a minimum of a 50% improvement to swirl marks, marring and other defects, as well as making a huge difference to the depth of colour and gloss levels to the paintwork.  The biggest difference between this package and our Refresh is the coating options.  With our Single Stage Package, we offer the full range of Gtechniq Ceramic coatings from EXOv5 all the way up to Crystal Serum Ultra Black and Total Surface Protection.


This package is perfectly suited to vehicles that are “nearly new” and that are perhaps a couple of years old and haven’t been properly cared for.  In this instance (and depending on the condition of the paintwork) we would expect to return the condition of your vehicle to almost showroom condition and then protect it moving forward. 

Last but not least your vehicles interior is treated to the same level of care and attention.  All leather/ fabric seats are cleaned to the best of our ability along with mats, carpets and all other aspects of your vehicles interior.  We aim to deliver the same high quality finish to the vehicles interior as we do to the exterior and we have coating options for interior surfaces too.

As well as paint protection, we also offer high performance Gtechniq coatings for your wheels, brake callipers, trim, exhaust tips, glass and full interior packages again, depending on your requirements. Here are some of the coating options to choose from:

Crystal Serum Ultra is the best paint protection you can get, it keeps your car looking glossy and new, prolonging the life of your paintworks perfect finish. 10h paint protection, matchless levels of gloss, surface slickness, swirl and chemical resistance all combined with a 9 year guarantee against staining and discolouration is what gives this product its outstanding reputation and makes it a must have for your vehicles paintwork!

Key to Crystal Serum Ultras performance gain is the introduction of a revolutionary new 7nm nanoparticle alongside an existing 20nm nanoparticle and increasing the ratio of crosslinkers which reinforce and thicken the top layer of the coating.

The hard 10h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h paint protection coatings. Compared to standard ceramic paint coatings, Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings.

An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and the hard top layer is that Crystal Serum Ultra is very resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius.

CSU Black - For the Ultimate protection that Gtechniq has to offer, we recommend Crystal Serum Ultra Black (CSU Black). The class leading Crystal Serum Ultra, with two layers of EXOv4 as a top coat. Take all the properties of the already outstanding Crystal Serum Ultra and combine them with the added slickness and extreme hydrophobic properties of EXOv4 for mind blowing results! The finished product is the best we have to offer, leaving you with an extremely durable, slick and extremely glossy coating with outstanding swirl resistance, water/dirt repellency, chemical and UV resistance. You will not be disappointed!

Crystal Serum Light is the prosumer version of the world-famous Gtechniq Accredited Detailer Crystal Serum Ultra. It offers 80% of professional Serum Ultra’s performance, but if applied incorrectly can be machine polished from your vehicles paintwork.

When it comes to adding gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt repellency, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra and Serum Light are the pinnacle in paint protection. When applied by ourselves, Crystal Serum Light comes with a 5 year guarantee against staining and discolouration. 

CSL Black - For the ultimate in Crystal Serum Light based protection, we recommend a top coat of EXOv4. We refer to this combination as Crystal Serum Light Black (CSL Black). EXOv4 delivers a hard film that makes water-spots easy to remove, offers great resistance to all wash chemicals and can help withstand micro-marring. It produces a high-gloss, warm-looking, extreme hydrophobic finish. CSL Black leaves you with the incredible glossy finish of CSL but with the addition of the extreme hydrophobic properties of EXOv4.


As well as all exterior work carried out, while your vehicle is with us we also carry out a comprehensive cleanse of the interior with the option to protect all required surfaces.
