“First-class quality paired with an affordable pricetag”
Mike Fry has been a car man for his entire life, so there’s little surprise that his valeting business is his pride and joy.
The father of three from St. Austell, Cornwall, has been valeting cars for eight years. He started off servicing his friends’ cars on his driveway, and quickly developed the reputation of “maxing out” every job he started, which would later become the name of his company.
Four years later Mike founded ‘Maxpolished Valeting’ along with a business partner. They have since professionallyserviced almost 2000 cars. Having moved into their posh new premises 12 months ago, business is booming.
There is just the two of them working in the workshop, with Mike’s teenage son lending a helping hand some weekends.
Mike prides himself in attention to detail, and treats every car as if it were his own. His thorough service has earned him a five star reputation in the local area.
Maxpolished Valeting gets recognition further afield than just the local area, however, with some customers travelling from up to 40 miles away.
Mike sees regular customers coming through the door, with many coming for repeat services. The business thrives off positive word-of-mouth, but also has a strong Facebook presence.
Maxpolished Valeting offers a wide range of services or ‘packs’; from a basic car wash, to a full showroom finish. Mike is proud to offer these services for a fraction of the price of leading rivals.
Each pack features the prefix MAX; for example, ‘The X-MAX Pack’ is a hugely popular annual seasonal offer.
Their best-selling pack is the MEGAMAX, which for a mere £75, will leave your vehicle looking showroom ready. This features an internal and external blitz, including interior fabric treatment, stain removal, two wax coatings, alloy cleaning, and under-the-bonnet dressing.
Mike has seen all sorts of vehicles in his workshop, from Vauxhall Corsas to Bentley Continentals. He has even had clients come in before with a mobile home and a boat – but would never turn away business.
