I am Ben Ancliff, founder and owner of Smart Clean Valeting & Detailing.
A lifelong 'petrol head' my love of valeting and detailing started many years before I could even drive a car, even if I didn’t know what it was called!
A love of cars and a talent for attention to detail had been inherited from my father, along with many other atributes for which I am very greatful.
Running my own business was a lifelong dream, finally fulfilled in mid-2010 when I decided to take the plunge and have never looked back !
I am also very fortuanate to have worked on some of the most amazing vehicles ever produced, and often rarely seen in public.
When not at work,my love of cars continues into other hobbies, I am always happy to find an excuse to drive my personal show cars, after years of showing my Ford Escort at shows across the UK, I love track days and also the occassional trip to the nurburgring with friends.
My partner always says I pick the cheap hobbies!
However the biggest thing in my life is my little boy Archie, with whom I love to spend my time with. Who knows there may be a Junior apprentice in him in a few years to come?!
