A bit about us

The company has been around since 1974 and is still family owned and operated. Falcon Car Care are now one of the largest specialist valeting firms in the UK with over 400 valeting operatives cleaning nearly 30,000 cars a week. Today the company looks after many well-known dealership brands and runs some of the most challenging high volume sites in the UK.

Why we save our client’s money and improve site performance

We believe our customers should not be paying for non-productive time, materials or equipment. That’s why as standard we supply all the materials, equipment and only charge for the vehicles we clean. Of course we can work according to your preference, but we find this model works well. This also avoids many of the problems associated with employing people such as administration, holidays, sick pay and finding replacements for absenteeism. Our “all in” price per unit cost model is also very useful for customers when they are forecasting budgets, as all our costs can be pre-determined at an early stage.

A message from Managing Director Ian Rigby

“Over the past 40 years, the valeting industry has changed dramatically and although we have moved ourselves with the times, our principles will always remain the same. Myself and many of the management team here at Falcon started our working lives on the valeting pitches and we think this is fairly unique in the modern valeting world.

Because we have lived and breathed the industry for so many years, we really do understand what is important to you…and of course your own customers. It’s also a reason why we work with the companies we do, a source of pride for our business.

If you choose to contact us and work with my company, I can promise you this……..total commitment from day one.

I know it’s easy to make grand promises on websites and tell you what you want to hear; but the truth is we are a hardworking company, with a great track record and we would love the opportunity to work with you.

I hope this website answers some questions you may have about us, but by all means, if you have any questions contact me directly. I’d be delighted to speak with you.
