Who Are We ?

Established in 2013, The Shine Machine provides high quality car valeting throughout Cheshire, parts of North Wales and The Wirral.

Owned and operated by Steve Ineson and based in Sandiway, Northwich. We are passionate about helping our customers maintain their cars in superb condition. Our fully equipped van enables us to clean, restore and protect your car with minimum fuss at your home or office. We are highly experienced, fully insured, and a member of PVD (Professional valeters and detailers)

What Areas Do We Cover?

Based in Northwich I am happy to offer car valeting throughout Cheshire, dependant on the work required, all I can say is if in doubt then call me to discuss.

Areas covered include -

Congleton, Macclesfield, Holmes Chapel, Winsford, Northwich, Knutsford, Chester, Frodsham, Helsby, Kelsall, Tarporley and Tarvin.

New Car Protection

Surprisingly paintwork is not perfect when a new car is delivered.
I can apply varying types of protection and machine polish the body work giving you the best possible appearance and protection from day one.

This makes sure the paint is in as good condition as possible and is protected against day to day salt, dirt etc.

Ceramic coating can also provide a whole new level of protection. More resilient to everyday weather and environmental issues, it lasts longer and effectively applies a glass coating to the surface of the vehicle, repelling water in a very impressive manner. The cost of this starts at £225 and goes through to £350 (assuming it's applied to a new or virtually new vehicle).
