About Us

The Story…

Founder of the business, David Whitehouse, set up Ideal Valeting & Detailing back in 2007 to provide an unrivalled, first class service for clients like you. Clients that are looking for a service over and above your usual car care company.
Back in the late nineties, early noughties he quickly realised while working for various main dealerships that he must have been doing something right when sales executives were constantly asking if he could make sure that their car was prepared by him. It was abundantly clear that his attention to detail and desire to make a car look drop dead gorgeous was soon going to turn into more than just a 9 to 5 job and a few years later Ideal Valeting & Detailing was born. Fast forward to the present day and with the continued support of many valuable clients, the company has gone from strength to strength and now trades almost entirely from referrals and recommendations, the best form of advertising.


With many things in life, experience is key and with over 15 years in the trade, David certainly has this basis well and truly covered. As mentioned above David worked his way up from mainstream dealerships picking up great advice along the way but also seeing first hand how certain processes should not be carried out. Cutting corners is not something that comes naturally. Throughout the years of working in the motor trade he was given a few different opportunities to work in different sectors. Sales, parts, mechanicals etc, again taking experience from each and every one and while enjoyable the need to create that incredible look that only a freshly detailed car can give, was always going to take first place. It is this broad range of invaluable experience, that gives you, the customer peace of mind that your treasured sports, performance or super car is in the safest possible hands.
