Welcome to Ribble Valley Auto Tech. We are the prestigious car detailing and cosmetic enhancement division of Ribble Valley Sports Cars - an exclusive vehicle brokerage based in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire. Our heritage is firmly embedded in the automotive industry and we are experienced in dealing with cars of a high value and performance orientated nature.
With our comprehensive range of bespoke services and our unique approach to customer hospitality, we believe that we have set a new benchmark in the automotive detailing and S.M.A.R.T repairs (Small, Medium Area Repair Technique) marketplace - one that similar companies can only aspire to. As well as being an IMI (Institute of the Motor Industry) affiliate and qualified in a range of disciplines, not least as a Master Detailer, we are proud to be accredited by two of the most respected and desirable brands within the industry Gtechniq and Swissvax, offering the world's finest car care products and protective coatings. This achievement further compliments our authorised Chipex repairer and PlastiDip Pro-Dipper status as well as our APA vehicle wrapping certification. Again, a further testament to our quality of service, consistency and the high level of attention to detail that you can expect from us.
Furthermore, we are the only car detailing company within Preston & Fylde and the Ribble Valley who are approved members of the Professional Valeters & detailers Association - the UK's most highly regarded trade association for the car detailing industry. In this respect, you can be assured that you are dealing with a skilled, proven and fully insured professional organisation.
More importantly than any of the above, we are passionate about cars and fastidious in our craftmanship. Our art is in 'perfecting' a form that can often already be considered as aesthetically pleasing... in this respect, we will never settle for anything less than flawless. Our services are not limited exclusively to cars either. We are equally at home applying our specialist techniques to motorcycles, aerospace, marine applications and special projects upon request.
Our technicians are fully trained and accredited by some of the leading manufacturers and governing bodies within the automotive industry. Not only are we 'officially' certified, consumate professionals - our team have many years of combined practical experience, honing their expert skills in some of the most prestigious and reputable car dealerships in the United Kingdom.
It has to be said that many car detailing, wrapping and cosmetic companies will scrimp and save on their materials in order to improve their margins and increase their bottom line. We don't. As with many things in life, "you get what you pay for" and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a beautiful motor car should be no exception.
The high end materials that we use, particularly in detailing, such as Swissvax, Gtechniq and Koch Chemie, always achieve superior results when compared with lesser quality products and, in our experience, they are usually more pleasurable to work with in terms of efficiency and ease of application, thus providing long term durability and resilience. Our ongoing commitment to achieving excellence is second to none and, by using the finest materials that money can buy, we are confident when we say that "your car will never have looked so good!"
We treat each and every vehicle with the utmost respect and as though it were our own. Our attention to detail is, quite simply, second to none and we guarantee that your pride and joy will look stunning upon collection.
Each member of our team is fully trained and accredited to the highest possible standards. We consider ourselves to be consumate professionals with many years' combined experience in automotive detailing and cosmetic enhancement.
We understand that many of our clients' have hectic lifestyles so we will always endeavour to work around your schedule, ensuring that your vehicle is in pristine condition and ready for collection as per the agreed timescale.
From bespoke car detailing to vehicle wrapping and our specialist AutoMechanica program, we offer a range of services designed to compliment one another and therefore cater for all of your automotive aesthetic requirements.
All of our services are likely to add value to your investment. No matter whether it be a Chipex treatment, the addition of a Gtechniq protective coating or even an ECU remap, consider it money well spent in the long term.
Our clients always come first because we understand the intrinsic value of your business. We therefore strive to achieve 100% satisfaction at all times and this is hopefully reflected in the quality of service that we provide.
Our detailing studio and workshop is conveniently located near Red Scar Business Park, just off the M6 (J31A) inbetween Grimsargh and Preston. The scenic delights of the Fylde Coast and historic market towns of the Ribble Valley, such as Longridge and Clitheroe, are only a short drive away.
When you drop a vehicle off with us for any service or cosmetic enhancement, we will happily drop you off at your chosen destination. Whether it be your home or office, train station or airport for your onward journey... maybe even a local gastro-pub for a spot of lunch, this is all part of the service and the quality of customer care that we provide.
Alternatively, we would be delighted to arrange the collection of your vehicle from any location (UK & Europe) and carefully deliver it back to you upon completion of work. We have fastidious, exceptionally insured and highly competent members of staff on hand to take care of the logistics!
As soon as your vehicle arrives with us, we carry out a thorough appraisal and produce a condition report with photographs or a 'walk around' video prior to any work being carried out. The next step in our procedure is to hook the vehicle up to a battery conditioner to ensure that the electrical system is fully maintained whilst in our care. Should you wish to leave your vehicle with us for any extended period of time, we offer a range of flexible and affordable storage solutions and can even provide a ventilated, air-flow regulated protective enclosure to encapsulate your pride and joy. You can feel confident in the knowledge that your car is fully insured in a modern, well constructed building that is protected by a state-of-the-art security system and, if abstinence gets the better of you, you can always log on to our dedicated browser based CCTV system to satisfy yourself that your car is receiving the best care and attention.
If the purpose of your visit is likely to be a less lengthy affair, for example a tyre installation or an ECU remap, you might prefer to simply take the weight off your gas pedal and relax in our customer lounge. You can enjoy an espresso of choice whilst flicking through a magazine 'hot off the press', watch on-demand TV or browse the internet with our complimentary iPad and free Wi-Fi until your car is ready to hit the road once again... or return to it's stable. You could even test your skills on our Playstation racing simulator if you feel like a challenge!
