Having worked in the motor industry for a number of years, founder Peter Davies, set up his own business in 2014 providing a bespoke series of  valeting and detailing services to a wide range of client base.

With always having a huge passion for cars and working on them, Peter saw that the market for a bespoke client based car detailing concierge service, which left the client fulfilled their requirements had not only been fulfilled but surpassed.

Design By Detail – vehicle appearance specialists – we offer a wide range of detailing services. We strive to create and achieve results beyond customer expectations. Whilst using some of the finest products from Swissvax, IGL Coatings, Kamikaze and Feynlab, we pride ourselves in our attention to detail, level of care, skill and enthusiasm afforded to each and every task.

Our studio is based on the border of Berkshire & Hampshire. From here we can provide all our ceramic coatings including PPF and self healing coatings.

With also the benefit of having our mobile support vehicle, we can come to you. We operate a full UK service and also our van makes trips into Europe for clients as well.

Applying a coat of Swissvax Wax or sealing the paint with a Ceramic Coating will keep your paint protected and is far less costly than having your vehicle resprayed in the future due to damage from being unprotected. Your vehicle’s factory paint is better quality than the majority of aftermarket alternatives, aftermarket paint jobs tend to be of a poorer quality, leaving them with more defects than from factory.

At Design By Detail it’s not just about being unit based, we have our mobile support vehicle to come to you, we also have all your areas covered for you. Fully insured and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week we ensure the client is priority.

Catering for clients like Lamborghini, Bristol Cars and TVR with supporting their new car launches, as well as events like Salon Prive and The Classic Car Show we can cover all your events.

Peter is absolutely the best ever. Design by detail is perfect, because Peter works to perfection every part and every detail of my Range Rover Sport is pristine. It looks better than when it left the showroom. Absolutely highly recommended in every way. Perfection at it's very best. Thank you.

Pete came today to detail my car. (Lindsay)
Always used the polish for a £5 wash, but never again!!!! What a fantastic job done so impressed with the end result, absolutely over the moon. Booked again on 10th April to do some paint correction and also booked him on a regular basis once a month to do my Mazda and my partners Porsche for wash and wax. True professional and very polite. Thanks Pete

5 star service from Peter @ Design By Detail. First time customer after wanting some winter protection on my 1 Series & brother's S5. After managing to squeeze us in prior to Christmas, we had 2 cars valeted, and 8 stage clean, wax and sealed. Couldn't be happier with the outcome, very professional job and both cars look unbelievably good! Gained 2 new customers and will be returning in the new year!

Here at Design By Detail we have carefully hand picked our products through testing on our own vehicles to ensure we have the right products for the job. Whether its Swissvax, IGL Coatings, Kamikaze or Feynlab we tailor the products we use to your specific job. No two cars are the same and we wouldn’t expect to treat them as such. The design is in the detail.
