About Us

Douglas Harrower

Douglas has enjoyed a long and varied valeting career based at Val-lux car valet centre in Ayr. He founded the company himself some 17 years ago. The foundations in which his company was built are simple, fantastic personal customer service combined with his own experience within the car care industry.

Douglas said "I love my job, I dont have customers I have a huge number of friends as I've been at Fort Street for ever" he laughed. "I couldn't do anything else and I like nothing more than the look on someones face when they see what I've done with their car. I believe a home is a sacred place and the next thing to that is your car, a wee peak out the window just before bed to check it's okay - I've been in the car care trade too long not to realise the finer details. It's this understanding that has driven me to push my company forward.

"Douglas has been Valeting my family's cars for years and I would trust them to no one else. Always reliable, friendly and courteous no matter when you drop by. You will not get better service and value for money in the town."
Kris Kirk, Alloway

"I have my car washed and valeted by Douglas every week and could recommend him to anyone. You can always be sure of a friendly smile. It's like collecting a new car every week after the valet!"
Mrs McKeith, Ayr
