Detail My Ride specialises in vehicle polishing and paint protection

Port Elizabeth - Detail My Ride, located in the Underground Car Park at Moffat on Main Retail Park, Port Elizabeth, offers a wide range of services to polish, clean and protect the exterior and interior of any vehicle – car, boat, motorbike and even aeroplanes.

Shawn Heath, founder of the Detail My Ride franchise says; “We offer the best car polish service available. We are a highly specialised car detailing and headlight restoration company. We are experts in automotive paint correction and scratch removal.”

Shawn has extensive experience in automotive polishing systems and has been a supplier and consultant to OEM’s since 2007.

Shawns’ other interests include Hand H chemicals, iVolve and Shine My Ride, all of which are involved in vehicle care.

H and H Chemicals supply and advise most of the top car manufacturers in South Africa including Mercedes Benz, BMW and Ford, with polishing product and equipment.

“We only use Scholl Concepts and Feynlab products for auto detailing at Detail My Ride as they are both world leaders in quality care products and ceramic and self-healing car paint,” adds Shawn.

Detail My Ride loves cars

Detail My Ride is not a valet centre but a car polish and detailing centre and that handles paint correction on different types of automotive clear coats and lacquers. Through the use of quality German products, their technical expertise and years of experience, they achieve the high gloss and pristine finish that your vehicle truly deserves.

Shawn adds, “We love cars and take great pride in making your ride look awesome. Our unique and flexible system at Detail My Ride helps us to achieve a complete service!”

Once the required quality and gloss is achieved on the paint work, Detail My Ride offers premium paint sealants and coatings to prolong the magnificent finish and reduce the daily wear and tear from outside elements.

Thanks to their central and safe location Detail My Ride is easily accessible.

Personal Experience

I own a couple of small cars that are registered with Uber. As these cars are on the road nearly 24 hours a day and do a lot of traveling with a wide variety of people they become very dirty and end up with scratches and dings and the upholstery gets very manky.

I contacted Detail My Ride and booked in my Honda Brio for a scratch removal and gloss enhancement, industrial fallout removal, a paint protection coating and an interior clean.

This is not your typical auto cleaning facility. This is a detailing centre and so the area is spotlessly clean and only the best equipment is on hand. I was particularly impressed by the light stand that was focused in each part of the car as it was detailed and that the cleaning team wore matching, branded aprons.

Going to Detail My Ride compared to other car valet places that I had visited was like going to a private hospital compared to a government hospital. Far better in every way.

The team at Detail My Ride are very friendly and very helpful and they checked in my car professionally and they gave it an all-round inspection with me before they offered to give me a lift home or to my office.

When I returned later in the day I was not surprised to find that my well-worn Honda looked like new. Picture plain Jane after she has had a make-over.

The team at Detail My Ride clearly love automobiles and if you love your luxury sedan of upmarket SUV then this is where you should bring your car for a deep clean and long lasting protection.
