Company Overview

Autovaletdirect are able to offer more than mobile valeting, vehicle rectification, correction of minor paintwork problems and odour removal and spillages. Through extensive R&D, our team has now achieved what we believe to be a perfect formula – a product and service that is not only useful to its customers, but sometimes essential. A product and service which is an amazingly cost-effective alternative to everything else on the market. And finally, a product and service which is hugely profitable for its suppliers.

Founded in 1985 and franchised in 2006, Autovaletdirect is independently owned and operated by founder Chris Johnson. Having established a successful franchise model and sound commercial base to work from, Autovaletdirect is now ready to expand its franchise network throughout the UK.
