Client Testimonials

Dave - RS Skoda Octavia (Durham)
Sam carried out a Full stage 1 detail on my Skoda Octavia today, and after the work that he has carried out I would be happy to recommend him to anyone. I have only just purchased the used skoda from a dealership and it had already had a pre delivery valet but I wanted a professional finish that I could maintain.

Sam has got my paintwork gleaming and the interior looking and smelling like new.

I will be asking Sam back to complete maintenance detailing throughout 2017 on my car.
Cheers Dave

Steven Sherry (Paint Enhancement Detail)
Had my 435 BMW 4 weeks when I scratched the bonnet quite badly when cleaning it.I then had a Paint Enhancement Detail clean done on the car. It removed the scratches and the car looked better than when I picked it up from the showroom. But the detail and care Sam put into the cleaning of the car inside and out was phenomenal. I would highly recommend Auto Cleanse North East and I will be using them again.

P & G Haynes. Darlington.
We bought an MX5 that had very bad paintwork, there was literally scratches on every panel and ringed scratches from car wash brushes. Sam washed the car and then spent two days buffing, polishing and waxing it. He was polite, friendly, hardworking and professional. The results were amazing! The car is polished to showroom standard and looks like a new car! We are so pleased with his work, that we are hoping to get him back to sort out our motorbike. He uses fantastic products and his knowledge is amazing! We would highly recommend Sam and are glad we have found such a fantastic guy to help keep our cars in showroom condition.

I am delighted to refer the services of Sam Payne at Auto Cleanse North East. We have known Sam for approximately 3 years and have referred him to a large number of our Mercedes Club members and customers. I have had a number of other detailing/valeting people on-site before, and decided to use his services moving forward. Sam has carried out a whole variety of jobs from Paint Enhancements to high level correction work and much more, both here with us at the garage and privately with customers who continue to require ongoing visits from his services. His focus to careful preparation and thoughtful approaches to a job, along with customer service is a five star level. He is very approachable and has a very good mobile set up. Having Judged for Autoglym the fact he is a Registered Operator for Autoglym carry’s a lot of weight. Sam has given a talk at a Mercedes Club meeting and we know he will be open to future events and looking forward to working together in the future.

Ray & Hazel (New-Car Protection Detail)
Just to say thanks for the great job you did on our brand new, Blue Skoda Octavia. Many of my village friends are passing by and commenting on the appearance of our car and all are well impressed with it. I will highly recommend you to anybody for the quality of workmanship, as the car gleams and you're a third of the price quoted by the Dealer. Two happy customers.

Ian - Porsche 911 (New Car Protection Detail)
Just to let you know how pleased I was with the work you done on my Porsche, the car looked fantastic. You will be happy to know that I have recommended you to any one and every one.

Chris – Mercedes Benz 250s (Mercedes Club Member)
Following the purchase of a classic Mercedes Benz 250s in early 2014, I needed a detailing specialist to support me with my car care. This vehicle had been in storage for around 30 years so there were obviously areas which needed attention. Having pondered over just contacting somebody I had the opportunity to speak with some highly respected contacts at Auto Spray and Diamond Garage, both of which have been using Sam of Auto Cleanse and have connections with a number of clubs including Mercedes clubs. Independently of each other they both recommended Sam Payne of Auto Cleanse North East. Following his visit and cleanse to the Interior everything has depth and it smells so much better, it will be so much more pleasant an environment to be in. Sam is re-visiting next week to carry out further treatments. I’m very happy to recommend his services and it is very sensible to use somebody who is recommended from a highly esteemed source.

Chris Garbutt Stage 3 Custom Detail
I met Sam a little while ago to discuss giving my car, a Jaguar XKR a much needed makeover, having kept the car outside for the last 3 years. Sam did an amazing job bringing the car's paintwork back to life. Sam's attention to detail is second to none, highly skilled and no doubt a little OCD lolol... much to his credit. I will be using Sam again in the future and can highly recommend him to anyone thinking about giving their car or bike a serious detail and clean...good job.

Chris - Witton Le Wear Auto Detailing
I previously used a specialist detailing company on my Porsche 911 4S & Audi R8 costing well over £500 per job. Sam carried out a full interior & external detail on my BMW M5 for significantly less but the end results were unsurpassed. Sam also carried out a full internal and external clean on my brand new C63 AMG, again with excellent results. What distinguishes Sam's services is not only his professionalism in terms of end result which is superb, but the personal touch he offers being such a diligent, genuine and lovely guy. Cannot recommend Sam enough and could guarantee his services.

Lesley Thompson of ALM Products
We recognised Sam Payne from Auto Cleanse North East following a great editorial in a local newspaper. When first speaking with him on the phone we wanted to arrange an ongoing Valeting and Detailing plan. The first set of treatments far exceeded our expectations; we got the wow factor and everything about his services in comparison to others is superior. Sam adds into his visit extra services when a vehicle requires to protect them so we can rest assured to be retaining the value of our vehicles. In addition, he has worked on other vehicles within his twice monthly visit and he carries out motorbike detailing at our home. Auto Cleanse North East is clearly the market leader within the area and we have great confidence in the fact he is registered by Autoglym. We highly recommend Sam to care for your vehicles and have had a superb, professional experience.

Kath Leask (PM) of Dean & Sunderland Road Dental Practice (Commercial Carpet Cleaning)
We are thrilled to recommend Auto Cleanse North East. From the first meeting to quote we found them professional, approachable, honest and flexible to our needs. Due to the size and condition of the carpets in both practices they worked out a clear plan, came back to us very quickly and kept an open communication throughout the experience. We have a sizeable practice and following the treatments we are very happy with the outcome and plan to use their services again.

Rachel Hanley of Ferrari's for Occasions
We are very happy customers following further Valeting and Detailing work from Sam at Auto Cleanse North East. It looks better than when we purchased it from the dealers. Thanks Sam also for carrying out property Carpet Cleansing as well; all the carpets were dry within hours and look fantastic. Great to have this done whilst in the comfort of your own home and we highly recommend these services. We have two wedding vehicles we rent out and we will be using Auto Cleanse to help maintain and detail to ensure we retain the value of these vehicles.

Charlotte Stow of Zine UK
I am delighted to recommend Sam at Auto Cleanse North East, his approach to doing business is a joy. He is thorough, professional, takes time to understand what you want and to explain what he has done and why. His service exceeds expectations, is well thought through and customer friendly. He works around your schedule and goes the extra mile to do the best he can for you. I got home and my husband Martin who is a real critic said it's the best job he's ever seen. High praise indeed. He said it's never looked so good. Brilliant! Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Good Value

Tamara Wilson of Born 2 Run Pet Care
Thank you so much for the amazing job you did on my Van interior. It looks great! I will recommend you to as many people as possible!

Gary Hosey of Emotional Intelligence Co
Having used Sam's Auto Cleanse recently I was more than impressed with every aspect of the service. His information was clear and specific and he more than delivered on the outcome. Having had several valets previously who had been unable to remove some kids stains on the seats; Sam delivered a brilliant result! Not only removing all stains, and making the car cleaner than when I had purchased it 2nd hand!! Thanks Sam and will be definitely having a regular booking with you. Great value and worth every penny... you will not be disappointed. Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity

Joel Oliver of Insight Marketing International (Audi RS4)
I cannot recommend Sam and the team at Auto Cleanse enough for the job they have done on my RS4. It had not been professionally cleaned for over 6 months and it had done a lot of miles, not to mention the dog in the boot and 2 children in the back for much of them! They did a fantastic job the car was gleaming, spotless and smelt great. It has been a joy to drive the car since - well done. I would not hesitate in recommending you.
