Trade / Fleet Vehicles

A regular valet program will keep your vehicles looking in premium condition

If you run your own business or are in charge of the company vehicles you will know the importance of having a clean fleet of vehicles, and the impression it makes on your customers. Here at Star Valeting we can take care of the complete cleaning and valeting of your company vehicles, cars and vans across Devon, and Cornwall. We can put together a service tailored to your requirements to keep your vehicles well maintained and looking good.

Experience tells us employees tend to treat a clean vehicle with more respect. Keeping your vehicles well maintained will mean they command maximum value when it comes to trading them in, and you’ll get maximum life out of your vehicle too. If you have made additions to your vehicles such as sign writing or van racking, talk to us about protecting and restoring their appearance prior to trading them in, so that you can maximise their trade-in value and the financial return to you.
