About Bridge Valeting and our detailers

Paul Smith has 28 years’ experience in the trade. He started his valeting career at 17 years old, working for M&S Arlington where he stayed for 5 years. M&S Arlington is an accident repair centre and coachworks, this is where he learnt all aspects of machine polishing and paint correction as well as interior valeting.

Paul went on to work for a car rental company. The inside of these vehicles would often come back tarnished and soiled, this is where he learnt to dress and repair scuffed plastic trims, remove stains and odours where speed, accuracy and high quality was expected. A Citroen dealership was his next challenge, he was required to turn the old part exchanged vehicles into forecourt sales cars and preparing others ready for auction. He also worked with new vehicles, detailing them for the showroom which had to be of the highest quality. This is where Paul got noticed by Russell Allingham, a highly experienced valeter and owner of a prestigious detailing company based in the Home Counties covering all of London, where he worked on high end luxury vehicles and super cars from the elite vehicle enthusiast, to some of the top names and celebrities. He acquired an extensive knowledge of products and techniques and was accredited by Zymöl to use their polishing and waxing products. He was also accredited by SuperGuard for ceramic coatings, interior waterproofing, soft top cleaning, renovation and protection.

Moving to Cornwall Paul met Steven Calvert the proprietor of Bridge Tools who was also operating a hand car wash & valet next to his Wadebridge store. Seeing an opportunity, they teamed up and Bridge Valeting was born in 2018 renovating and customising part of the shop for this purpose. Due to the success of the business a second location will be opening soon in Launceston.

Paul Smith is highly proficient on all aspects of internal and external valeting, his experience and detail for minor repairs and paint care is second to none. Pop in anytime to meet the valeters and discuss any custom work you may require.

What our Customers Say!

I came along 15 minutes before closing and without notice but they fitted me in for a brilliant wash and dry and the car looked gleaming. Friendly, helpful service and advice on buffing out some surface scratches, lovely people, definitely booking in for the scratch work. Highly recommend this excellent business 10/10

What our Customers Say!

Had a pot of cream spill all over the rear floor of my car which draped under the seat and deep into the sill trims and also splashed up the rear of the driver’s seat. Phoned at around 11.00 and it was in the valet bay at 13.50 for a full 2+ hours treatment. The result was stunning. Everything cleaned and back to original condition with a very pleasant aroma. No ‘dairy’ smell lingering at all.The whole interior is in prime condition. This is stunning service from very proficient, professional people. Would use again without hesitation. Brilliant service.
