“Having not used a dedicated aircraft valeting company, I did not know what to expect from this service. Although in good condition, my 1977 Piper Archer II required cleaning and Propwash was highly recommended to me by both engineering and aircraft sales representatives.

Mark Chegwidden treated my enquiries with the upmost care and attention. I received a personalised service as he attended my aircraft at my preferred location of Liverpool arriving early on the agreed day with his colleague and working until the evening.

The aircraft now looks like new due to Mark’s attention to detail (each individual rivet was cleaned!). The application of the acrylic sealant externally produced a superb finish and internally the carpets were thoroughly cleaned.

All in all I was delighted with the result and would highly recommend Mark and his company.”

David Barrington-Bullock, Archer II G-BRNV

“I recently had my aeroplane valeted by Mark and his team from Propwash and was totally amazed by the transformation. It looks like a brand new airframe inside and out and I would highly recommend their services.”

Nigel Lewton, Cirrus SR22 N67DP

“Propwash’s attention to the smallest details is astonishing and their professionalism and work ethic is unmatched. In my many years of working with them, I have always found that Mark and Propwash look after the aircraft as if it were their own. Nothing is too much trouble, including long journeys, often at short notice with overnight stays and very early starts / late finishes. Mark fully expects customers to want the best, then exceeds their expectations through hard work, excellent service and the best products. Mark takes enormous pride in his business and is passionate about it and all his customers. It is a pleasure to work with Propwash, I hope to continue working with them for many years to come and I wish them every success.”

Edwin, Cessna T210N G-BSGT

“Thanks for doing a really super job. We won the A J Jackson Memorial Award for the shiniest aircraft yet again. Of course everyone knows it was not me that valeted it, but Propwash as I publicised it on FB.

A couple of pics for you:”

Derek Sharp, S.A. Bulldog G-GGRR



“Dear Mark, just wanted to say a big thank you for the fantastic job you did on our DC-6. She looks really smashing. We finally had a chance to look her over properly and you’ve really done her proud!”

Julian, British Eagle DC-6

“Thanks so much to Mark and his team who have done a superb job on my Cessna 180. An immaculate clean and finish – it looks like new. Very friendly and efficient service. I would highly recommend.”

Edward Manners, Cessna 180

“Glass aircraft takes on a whole new meaning after a Propwash valet. We have been most pleased with the quality of the work and your service, so will be calling again in the future.”

Colin, Cirrus SR20 G2

“I have used Mark’s Company Propwash for six years and have always been impressed by the quality of their work, and more importantly never disappointed.”

Andrew, Yak 26
