*Please read carefully through our 'Services' page to choose the appropriate service for your Caravan or Motorhome. If after reading our Services page, you are not sure what you need, then simply give us a call or e.mail and we will guide you through all the facts and information you need.
Please include your make, model, year of manufacture and postcode for us to work out your price. We will need power and water at all locations. However, we do carry power for any single panel restorations on sites or storage facilities. What we do with regards to Restoration work, is use our previous experience with your vehicle and the year of manufacture. Plus the customers description of the paintwork condition. We will then give you a 'Worst Case' price based on this information. Although the Restoration service leaves all roofs perfectly clean, we will never restore the actual top part of a roof that's not visible. We take bookings for as far into the year as you want.
A deposit of £25 will be required on all bookings to secure your date, this is none refundable should you cancel your job. The deposit will be deducted from your final invoice.
One of the most popular parts of my Business is the 'Restoration' service. This service will rectify any faded, swirled, weathered, or most issues caused by incorrect product use. This Motorhome below is a great example of just how good we are. When we get initial enquiries from our Motorhome customers, we need to establish what each vehicle is constructed from. There is either an Aluminium body, or like the example below, GRP body. People often don't know the difference when asked. So we always ask if they have 'dents' on the sides. The reason is because this is an easiest way for the customer to work out the build material. Aluminium dents very easily, where as GRP won't dent.
GRP is a lot more robust than Aluminium, but the downfall is it fades faster and more consistently. Where as Aluminium tends to go more patchy as it fades. The other main reason we need to know the construction is because GRP is a lot harder to restore. It will typically take around 40% longer in time, and almost double the amount of products. However, as you can clearly see below, they do still Restore up amazing! If you use the background as a guide and try and see a reflection on the 'Before' pictures. Then compare this with the 'After' photos. Another benefit is they finish a lot whiter and loose the patchwork of different shades they have when they are faded.
This Motorhome was a full days job for both myself and Paul. It was a 300 mile round trip, and cost the customer between £400-£500. This in our opinion was a small price to pay for such a huge difference in appearance. Also if you are selling your Motorhome, this will optimise your asking price and leave no reason for a buyer to reduce your asking price by huge increments. This is not a temporary fix, like many other services available. This Motorhome will stay looking this way if the customer follows our simple aftercare advice.
