About Fresh Car Valeting

Fresh Car Valeting started in August 2015 as a project at Heriot Watt University. Owner of the business, Sam, and friend Thomas worked together using their passion for cars to fuel the project. After it was finished they decided that there was no reason that it couldn’t work in the real world, and we have been valeting Edinburgh’s cars ever since! Now slightly more developed than the first ideas in the classroom, we operate in Edinburgh, Livingston, Fife & the Lothians. At the core, we are just a group of car fanatics who get to do what we love all day long. Our business is built on the values of excellence, loyalty and hard work.

Our company ethos

At Fresh, we truly believe that you get out of people what you put in. Our staff are the most valuable assets we have. We made a decision at the start of the business to pay everybody above living wage, on full contracts, with full holiday pay. Cheaper prices are no substitute for high quality, professional staff. To be able to reward our team’s relentless hard work with a great standard of living and job security is one of our favourite aspects of business, and something we’re not willing to compromise on.
