Business Link spoke to Shawn Heath, the owner of Detail My Ride, to find out which car waxes he believes to be the best. 

Detail My Ride offers a premium car detailing service to all lover of cars.  Shawn says that they lovingly clean, refurbish and polish all manner of cars – from inexpensive runabouts to supercars.

“The one thing all these cars have in common is an owner who loves their vehicle,” says Shawn.

He adds, “The waxes that we use at Detail My Ride are really good.  Not only do they bring out the shine on a vehicle but they also offer long term protection. Being good quality they are expensive relative to the more common car waxes, but the waxes we use last much longer and a small amount goes a very long way.”

The waxes below vary in price considerably.  The main reason for this difference is the quality and percentage content of Carnauba wax.  This wax is derived from the Brazillian Carnauba Palm and offers an unmatched shine and protection when applied to paintwork.

  1. Swissvax Concorso

The Swissvax Concorso formulation includes 50 Vol. % of pure yellow Brazilian Grade One Carnauba wax.  It provides an outstanding gloss experience on all paintwork systems with a very deep and intense shine. There are very few waxes to compare with the Swissvax Concorso and all these are also made by Swissvax.  It is pricy but a small amount goes a very long way and it will keep the vehicles deep shine for a long period of time.  Click here for pricing and more information.
