What is the difference between a Cut n Polish and a Paint Correction?
Technically there is no difference, they are both “Machine Polishing”. However, a “Cut n Polish” is a term you will generally find being used by Car Wash Cafe’s and by cheap Detailers doing a “Quick Buff”. A Paint Correction is generally a term used by a professional who has a keen eye for detail and chases every imperfection to get the paint work in perfect condition with a combination of polishes, polishing pads, machines and techniques that suit the type of paint work on your vehicle.
Why does a Paint Correction cost much more then places doing a Cut n Polish?
As mentioned in the answer above a Paint Correction is generally a much more extensive machine polish by a professional who will take the time to get the paint work right and remove the imperfections. As a guide, a Stage Two Correction can take approx. 30-45 min per panel, times this by 10-13 panels on a car and it comes to 5-9hrs just to machine polish the car alone! If you are after a cheap cut n polish, chances are you will get cheap quality work!

Do you guarantee all imperfections will be removed?
We strive to produce a perfect finish however a number of things have to be taken into consideration such as the budget and not all imperfections can always be removed as they may be too deep, affected the clear coat or simply there is not enough clear coat left on the car to polish back.
