If your local Valetor is saying he needs to cut the paint back before claying he's talking out of his arse and you should run away as fast as you can.
I hope he doesn't wash the cars with sponges either.
Claying is a very simple process, no way in hell would I pay someone to clay my car for me.
I really like bilt hambers clay as it's cheap but an excellent product and you can use water as a clay lube.
Before claying give the car a wash using the two bucket method. While normally you should use a ph neutral shampoo, as you're going to be claying the car, use something like fairy liquid, as you'll be stripping any wax that's left on the paint off it anyway with the clay (you won't strip any paint with fairy liquid).
Once clayed you can either decide to polish or wax. To be honest if it was me, unless I had access to a DA, I'd apply a good wax to it. The work needed to polish a car by hand without a machine, is not worth the reward.
If she's never been clayed before, be in for a treat. The car will feel as smooth as glass.
Just make sure that when you're claying that you fold the bar regularly and that you don't drop the clay bar, as then it's useless and needs to be thrown away (helps to cut bar in quarters to reduce the risk of losing a full clay bar, which isn't fun.
