SQUEAKY CLEAN: Brilliant Auto Care lives up to their name


There is nothing compared to giving your car a very good scrub. From the minute that I arrived at Brilliant Auto Care, a car wash and valet service situated at 44 Heugh Road, Walmer in Port Elizabeth, I knew that this was one well run establishment.

Have you ever visited a car wash and wondered what on earth to do with yourself? Well, I have and Brilliant Auto answered this question for me. They have their own on-site coffee shop which serves delicious coffee, cakes and snacks and also free Wi-Fi in order for you to kill time while your car is getting pampered.

My fiancé has quite an unpredictable work schedule and at the last minute on the morning of the valet, informed me that he would be unable to drop me off at work. Left in somewhat of a panic on how to get to work as I hadn’t arrange a lift, I was quickly reassured that all will be fine as Brilliant Auto Care have their own chauffeuring service, hence after dropping off my vehicle’s keys, I was promptly dropped off at work.

I had selected a detail valet package which consisted of an inside and outside wash, engine clean as well as tyre and hand polish. As this was the first time I had ever booked a valet, I was somewhat nervous to leave my car behind but also quite excited to witness the end result.

At 4.30pm the chauffer collected me at my office to take me down to see my silver Suzie. Once reunited with my car, I was left speechless as my car appeared to have just left the showroom floor. In fact, I didn’t even want to set foot in it hence I was given a piece of paper by the staff to put on my now clean floor and carpets.

I honestly believe that the valet is something you need to work into your budget to perform on a bi-monthly basis. Imagine the resale value of your car if you keep it in immaculate condition!

The full valet also compliments Brilliant Auto Care’s two other divisions which include a normal wash/go and a dedicated division that specialises in body repairs ranging from small dents and scratches to a total vehicle re-spray.
