Why DSDetails
for your Valet or Detailing in Aberdeenshire?

It began with a passion for Detailing my own vehicles many years ago and also having previously worked for car dealers in and around Aberdeen as a valeter for both new and used cars.  

I began to offer my services as a hobby, and to begin with, valeting was carried out as a mobile service around Aberdeenshire as well as the occasional car valet on our home driveway. But, it soon became apparent that a premisses was needed in order to offer higher quality services, such as Ceramic Coatings, Protection Detail, Paint enhancement and correction to name but a few.

My name is Duncan, but most call me Dunc and here is a bit of a look into my history and how I got here.


I first started valeting cars for Renault in Aberdeen many years ago, cleaning mostly used cars, and although the pay was quite poor I did enjoy the work. I later moved onto working for Audi/VW where I progressed to managing the team of guys and valeting bays, ensuring all new and used cars were prepared to a suitable standard including the forecourt vehicles which were maintained for customer presetation.


My career moved to working offshore, and after a few years I secured a steady rotation and began to concentrate more on detailing my own vehicles during leave time.

This then sparked the idea of trying to expand my hobby by offering friends and family my services which began to grow more and more popular.


So it began, my small arsenal of products and tools were put to work and quickly I had to add more equipment and products in order to carry out valeting to the standard I was priding myself on. Most work was mobile but there were some clients who dropped their car off at my home where the work was carried out on my driveway.

Eventually I had to look for a premisses, as weather was playing a negative part on being mobile and working on the drive, as well as having the desire to offer higher quality services.


Since being in the garage I could concentrate on finer details and the pursuit of finding a ceramic coating that would work along side me with good benefits to the client. This was the introduction of working with Rob, owner of Alien Magic. I flew to Milton Keynes to meet Rob and his team to complete my accreditation for applying the Alien Magic coatings, and a short time after I also began to stock some of the Alien Magic products to offer as after care for my clients.


I also became a member of The International Detailing Association (The IDA) and completed a Certified Detailer training course which is to demonstrate the I am qualified under the professionalism of The IDA.


As with all things we evolve and I have now became an Accredited Partner with ZirconiteUK and their complete vehicle protection system. This is a 100% British manufactured, distributed and tested product range with real guarantees from product that give outstanding results and protection performance.

We can also supply you with aftercare products from ZirconiteUK, Infinity Wax a Scottish car care manufacturer and Alien Magic car care also sourced from the UK.


The next chapter is to move into a larger premises with the offer of all the valeting and detailing services currently available but to add a quick drive through hand car wash service as well. So with the continued support from old and new clients the dream will continue.
