Valeting start up help
Posted by paul@ctcs (paul@ctcs), 5 April 2004 I was asked today if my cleaning bussiness provided a valeting service. With the chance of obtaining a fair amount of work i am interested in training courses (i'm in east anglia) and what equipment is needed to provide a quality valet, if any one could offer some advice i would be most thankful.

BICS do a Car Valeting Certificate Scheme which covers stain removal, pressure washing, engine cleaning, exterior cleaning, interior cleaning, upholstery cleaning, paint renovation and exterior polishing.
The courses are reasonably priced and there are assessment centres around the country (although I dont know off hand who would be closest to you)
The BICS website is http://www.bics.org.uk
Hope this helps

I did the AutoGlym training course back in 1991 and I must say it was very helpful to me indeed. However as long as you can take the on slaught of AutoGlym sales pitch and ignore it just listen to the good help and advice you will be OK. Don`t remember the costs but needless to say it will have gone up in price.
