Cambridge Autogleam was started by Nathan Willits, a true car enthusiast who has always taken pride in detailing his own cars. Nathan's obsession with perfection started in 2000 with his first car, a 1990 Honda CRX, which even following a full respray was still a little way off looking as shiny as Nathan had hoped. The following three days were spent re polishing the entire car by hand, cleaning and dressing all the trims properly and lovingly waxing the paint. Looking back now Nathan can see that it probably wasn't his greatest job and thankfully he has since learnt how to skilfully machine polish the paint, but the seed had been planted and over the next few years Nathan's experience grew as he cleaned and polished his way through friends and families cars.
At the beginning of 2006 Nathan started Cambridge Autogleam as a mobile valeting service, but within a year it had quickly changed into a well respected detailing company offering fellow car enthusiasts who expect that little bit extra, Nathan's personal and professional service.
Despite the flurry of new detailing companies in recent years, whether they be new start ups or valeting companies quickly rebranding themselves as detailing specialists, Cambridge Autogleam has continued to prove themselves as one of the best and most trusted detailing companies in the UK and with very little advertising, has thrived on the excellent word of mouth recommendations of their loyal customer base.
Nathan grew up in Cambridge and after a few years in sales and then working on IT projects for a government department he started Cambridge Autogleam. To turn his hobby into a career, Nathan has spent many hours testing methods and products on sample panels and learning all that is possible to know about paint correction. This dedication can clearly be seen in the quality of finish he achieves with many customers commenting "Wow.. that looks better than when it was new". Nathan is a true petrol head and his passion for his work is evident in his work ethic, often working late into the night and treating each car as he would if it were his own. Away from detailing, he enjoys
go-karting and snowboarding.
In November 2015 Cambridge Autogleam became the Gtechniq Accredited detailing company for the Cambridge region. As well as giving us access to, what is in our opinion, the best sealants on the market today, this also means Gtechniq will warranty our sealant applications for up to 9 years. This accreditation however does not restrict our using other brands. We can still apply any of a number of high end premium products to your car to achieve the best possible finish without compromise.
At the same time, Cambridge Autogleam moved to the Autostore site in Cambridge where we now have a fantastic detailing studio that provides the perfect environment for achieving the perfect finish, a finish that is impossible to achieve on a driveway or in a small, dark garage.
Our preferred method of payment is via Bank Transfer, although we can also accept Credit / Debit cards or Cash. We no longer accept payment by cheque.

Simply put, detailing is the methodical cleaning, polishing and protecting of every surface on your vehicle
"...One of the very few car trade businesses that actually do what they say and do it very well..."
Very glad I discovered Nathan at Cambridge Autogleam. Very knowledgeable and articulate about his profession. Kept me updated all the time with progress videos of the work and gave some very good advice for the future care of the paintwork. You don’t often meet people/businesses that actually care about the job they do but Nathan definitely does.

"...I truly believe my car looks far better now than it did the moment it rolled off the production line..."
I rarely write reviews, however I felt compelled to tell people about the fantastic work that Nathan did on my new car. Despite my dealer’s best efforts to ruin the paintwork, Nathan did an amazing job on the car. I truly believe my car looks far better now than it did the moment it rolled off the production line. At my age there are very few things that make me feel like a child at Christmas, but that’s how I felt driving away from Cambridge Autogleam in my very shiny new car.
Not only is Nathans work fantastic, but it is also such a pleasure to talk to someone who is clearly passionate about their work and understands the importance of customer service. The service that I and my car received was truly beyond all that I hoped for.

"...If you’re fastidious and slightly obsessive about your car, Cambridge Autogleam is the perfect place..."
Cambridge Autogleam has an excellent reputation and Nathan offers a bespoke service. Responding to WhatsApp messages late at night as I live overseas was particularly helpful.
Few detailing companies can claim the business owner talks you through all aspects of the work and then does the work himself. I first used Nathan when he was mobile and his tireless passion and pursuit for perfection is second to none. He is a true enthusiast and gives you straight answers regarding products and finishes with his considerable knowledge.
His eye for detail is fantastic; the enhancement finish (and PPF by Jules Sturgess) on the GT3 is spectacular. From start to finish it’s effortless dealing with Nathan and even when he is super busy, he gives you his full attention.
I have also used the mobile wash service offered by Cambridge Autogleam, and it’s worth every cent. Nathan's assistant James is also enthusiastic, passionate and hard-working.
If you’re fastidious and slightly obsessive about your car, Cambridge Autogleam is the perfect place.

"...His attention to detail, passion and his magnificently high standards shine through on every panel..."
My car is not just a hunk of metal that gets me from A to B.
It was my late husband's pride and joy and it needed some TLC to bring it up to scratch, as it were.
I took it to Nathan and he and his team transformed a not bad 20ish year old M3 into a gleaming, sparkling showpiece of a car. His attention to detail, passion and his magnificently high standards shine through on every panel and piece of chrome trim that has been toiled over in the last few weeks.
I cannot recommend Nathan and his team highly enough; they are truly miracle workers.
Thank you again for everything.

"...It’s a shame that all new cars are not prepared to the same standards as Nathan achieves..."
I’ve been lucky enough to have had many new cars and I’ve usually negotiated that the dealership to do their protection products as part of the deal. Sadly I’ve also usually been disappointed by the end result.
I now realise there’s little point in protecting a new car that’s likely to have less than perfect paint work to start, which is often what I’ve had, even from official Porsche dealers! It’s a shame that all new cars are not prepared to the same standards as Nathan achieves. He is a real enthusiast with just enough OCD to get the results you wouldn’t think are possible.
My mini JCW was an unregistered car but had been sat in the mini showroom for a few months, it was certainly in need of attention. I’m a bit of a perfectionist too and knew that if I didn’t get this car sorted I would fall out with it every time I washed it and spotted an imperfection. Nathan spent time getting it right and it looks absolutely fantastic, it was an investment and I now feel confident that’s it’s had a great start and can easily maintain it and keep it looking great with ease.

"...delighted with the service and personal attention I received from Nathan..."
When I ordered my new Ford Mustang, I decided to search around for someone to apply a ceramic coating. Nathan gave me a lot of information about what would be done together with a comprehensive quote for the various options which were available.
Unfortunately, the delivery date from Ford slipped a number of times and thank you Nathan for being very understanding and accommodating about that and re-booking the job for me each time it happened.
When you speak to Nathan he explains everything he is going to do and walks around the car with you. He is, as he sounds on the phone and you imagine from his emails, a genuine nice chap running a business which oozes quality.
The car ended up needing quite a bit more work doing on it than we both first thought, the factory finish wasn't good enough for both of us, lots of extra TLC from Nathan brought it to the super gleaming white that makes it look a million dollars.
I was absolutely delighted with the service and personal attention I received from Nathan and Cambridge Autogleam and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

"...I can tell you take an immense amount of pride in the work that you do..."
I am truly over the moon with the work that you carried out on my SQ5. The paintwork was in such poor condition I knew that it would take someone who has high standards to put right and having done a lot of research into your work I knew that you were the best person for the job. The car looks amazing! You have done an impeccable job, I can tell you take an immense amount of pride in the work that you do, treating the car as you would your own. You definitely went over and above, with the car taking an extra two days to perfect yet you still only charged me the same, I appreciate your integrity. In this day and age its a pleasure to come across such a professional, dedicated and hard working person like yourself. I will definitely be calling on your services again and will recommend you highly! Thank you.

"...Your hours of hard work, skill and attention to detail produced a truly stunning result..."
Once I had decided to purchase a new Abarth 595 Competizone the first thing I wanted to arrange was a detailer. The G-Techniq website had a list of recommended detailers and Cambridge Autogleam was right on my doorstep. I spoke to Nathan and was impressed with my initial conversation and the car was booked in. The Abarth was delivered to Nathan on the same day as it was collected from the dealership and the work was started straight away. Unfortunately there were issues with the quality of the paintwork which needed extra preparation to remove the swirl marks and damage. I was so disappointed but Nathan put in many extra hours to make the paintwork look as good as possible working late into the night. Your hours of hard work, skill and attention to detail produced a truly stunning result and I am very happy with the results the car is easy to keep clean and the after care information you provided is invaluable. Many thanks

"...a reputation that is well deserved..."
Cambridge Autogleam has a fantastic reputation and one that is well deserved.
Nathan is a pure perfectionist and the quality of finish achieved was second to none. I didn't think it would be possible but when I returned home from work my GTS looked better than when I collected it from the dealership 3 days before!
It was a pleasure to deal with Nathan, so knowledgeable and a great passion for what he does and that is certainly reflected in his work. Thanks Nathan for such an amazing finish. Highly recommended!

"...I would recommend you to anyone..."
Hi Nathan, Just a note to say thanks for all the detailing work you've carried out on my small fleet of cars in the last year or so. Your attention to detail is phenomenal and I've learnt that having you carry out a full detail on a car prior to collection/purchase gives real peace of mind and is a real asset. As you know most dealers do not prepare cars (new or old) to the correct standard and skimp on this aspect of the sale. They've failed to realise that the majority of owners want to see their new purchase in the best possible condition and presented accordingly.
Your unlimited help and assistance in this area has saved me lots of money compelling dealers to rectify faults on the car that you have found. Invariably when I look around a car prior to purchase I end up missing stuff that then becomes costly or problematic to remedy post collection.
I would recommend you to anyone who is serious about setting and maintaining a high standard for their cars.

"...The car truly looks superb - Many thanks!..."
Having had my new Ferrari detailed by Nathan a few years ago I knew he'd be the best man for the job of detailing my Bentley. I've owned the Bentley for 8 years and whilst it always looked good I knew it could be a lot better.
After an amazing 35 hours of polishing (but over 3 days, what commitment!) the car truly looks superb. A 16 year old car couldn't be better.
Many thanks Nathan, all the best.

"...Your work far exceeds what the pictures tell you..."
Dear Nathan, Fantastic job, thanks. Of course I was expecting great things with the paint but the one thing I was surprised with was how well the film protection came up, I did think that you were going to tell me it needed to come off.
I too am glad you did our car, your portfolio speaks volumes and you work far exceeds what the pictures tell you.
