Why the rebrand?
We’ve come such a long way since we gained exclusive rights to the Carbon Cleaning brand and launched at the beginning of 2016. We now have the majority of the UK covered by our mobile technicians and are by far the most experienced and professional service available in the engine carbon cleaning market. We feel privileged to have we’ve achieved and exceeded our initial goal – it’s been some journey and we’ve learned a lot along the way.
One of the biggest things we learned was that delivering a professional service and caring about the results our clients get you, in turn, cared about us. You gave (and still do give) us so much by way of return business, referrals and fabulous testimonials. This pushes us on to be the best we can possibly be. We wanted to give back in return!
Back in 2017 introduced a range of chemicals to work with the Hydrogen carbon cleaning service. The reception was beyond all expectation, almost every carbon clean service we supply now includes at least one of these chemicals.
Along with this rebrand and new site launch we are about to embark on another new adventure – vehicle security. All our technicians have just completed training to become Authorised Autowatch Ghost installers. This next generation immobiliser silently protects your vehicle against the latest keyless entry vehicle theft techniques.
So, we’ve diversified beyond all expectation. The brand name UK Carbon Cleaning no longer did us full justice. However, we didn’t forget our routes, we are after all still the best in the business when it comes to engine carbon cleaning! We needed a new name that told you where we came from but also didn’t limit what you thought we offered. After lots of debating we came up with a shortlist, the public was surveyed (which provided some great insight) and we finalized on the new name UKCC Auto Techs – where we come from (UKCC obviously the initials of UK Carbon Cleaning) and Auto Techs encompasses the range of services we offer today.
The new website
Our new website you’re on today has been many months in the making. To be honest it’s come on leaps and bounds in that time from the original plan. There’s been many a lost sleeping hour to bring you the best experience possible. With features such as
- our new online diagnsois including registration look-up
- pricing tables (also specific based on the registration look-up)
- updates to the online booking system to ensure you seamlessly book with your local technician
- improved information and in a more accessible format
- making it far easier to find and contact your local technician
We believe we’ve hit the nail on the head with the user experience and we’ll continue to tweak it based on the feedback and statistics we receive.
We really hope you enjoy the new look us. As always your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new services. These services are both sort after by our clients and of the highest quality. We are sure they will complement the rest of the brand’s services and be part of our journey to becoming a household name.
We’ve been considering the introduction of a remapping service to complement the Carbon Cleaning and DPF Cleaning services for some time. In fact, a few of our Technicians have already been offering remapping on an independent basis. Well, we’re finally getting our act together and launching our own custom remapping service. Learn more over on the remapping section of the site.
Autowatch Ghost Immobilisers
Over the last 3-years vehicle theft has increased rapidly and the average value of a total loss has increased by 30%. This is due to newer vehicles with electronic keys, specifically keyless entry systems whereby the key only need be in the vicinity of the vehicle door to unlock the vehicle and then in the vehicle to start it, being more susceptible to a new theft technique whereby relays are used to extend the key signal from within a building to a parked and locked vehicle – this signal is then used to enter the vehicle and drive it away as though the thief has the keys.
Our suppliers Autowatch have produced a fantastic next-generation security solution to this called Ghost that you can learn more about on the Autowatch Ghost services section of the website.
The majority of our technicians have trained this week and are now authorised installers, the few that haven’t will be doing so very soon.
