We choose not to solicit or publish reviews or testimonials. Word-of-mouth referrals are our preferred form of social proof.

We do business with independent and empowered people: customers who shop (buy products) online and help themselves.

Please shop online; read and follow our written instructions. Thank you for your attention. We appreciate your cooperation.

Note: We supply finish care products throughout Ireland that serve quality-focused consumers, not price-sensitive shoppers. You pay us for products, postage, and packaging, not our time, labour, and expenses. Picking, packing, and posting detailing products (liquids) is a labour-intensive, time-consuming, and costly process. We oblige customers (online shoppers) who are professional, businesslike, and low-touch by shopping online and not interrupting our daily schedule during business hours.
