WHO WE ARE
Meet the operations team
Single handedly founding Approved Valeting at the age of 19, Justin has worked his way up from being a 7-year-old with a dream of working in the motor industry, to a 15-year-old YTS mechanic, a car valeter and now Managing Director of his own company. Away from the office, Justin loves nothing more than fast cars, football, and holidays.
Karl started with us 13 years ago as a lead valeter, progressing his way to team leader, site supervisor, national operations manager and now, National Operations Director. Karl is responsible for all quality control, productivity checks and customer satisfaction. Another family man, Karl loves nothing more than spending time with his children, listening to reggae music and getting stuck into anything and everything to do with the 80’s. He’s also a talented car detailer.

HOW WE WORK
25+ YEARS EXPERIENCE
Approved Valeting was founded by owner and Managing Director, Justin Bancroft. With a vision to change the way the industry served customers, Justin initially provided dealerships with pitch car and display services, before expanding into valeting new, used and service vehicles throughout the Midlands.
Continuously working and expanding, Approved Valeting increased its client list to include some of the top 20 automotive groups in the Midlands and was now working with a team of over 100 operatives.
Expanding further and branching into the logistics sector, Approved Valeting began working with auction houses and dealerships including BCA, Manheim, Ford Direct and more. A rebrand allowed Approved Valeting to reposition into the prestige valeting sector and start to change the business culture from within.
Approved Valeting were awarded a lucrative contract with a large national vehicle supermarket, this led to a new company structure and management team being introduced.
2020 - 2023
A new marketing sector was launched at Approved Valeting to help further promote and continue the company recognition as a prestigious valeting company.
