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.
Meet the team
Sam launched Fresh Car Valeting in 2016 after studying at Heriot Watt University. He valeted on his own for 18 months while learning to master the trade, before leaving university and deciding the pursue the business full time. These days, he enjoys getting his hands dirty as often as possible while also managing the day to day of the business.
Eve is the glue that holds the back end of our business together (basically, she does all the most important stuff!). While not keeping us all super organised, Eve loves to travel the world with nothing but a suitcase and some crazy ideas. She joined us in November and has already fit in as one of the team
After leaving Poland in search of a new adventure, Thomas and his wife Angelica settled into life in Edinburgh perfectly. Thomas now studies Computer Science and is a highly-valued part-time member of the growing Fresh Car Valeting team.
Arek is the newest member of the Fresh Car Valeting team. When he’s not busy meticulously cleaning and caring for cars, he loves travelling with his wife Ashley and day dreaming about his ideal car, the magnificent Mercedes SLK.
Vidmantas is a car enthusiast who loves caring for his CE300 Mercedes. He joined the team with lots of prior valeting experience, but had been criticised for being a stickler for detail. At Fresh we value his great eye! Vidmantas also loves the Highlands and is partial to a dram of whisky.
