Buying a New Car?
Are you thinking of buying or recently bought a new car? If you are fortunate enough to be able to buy a brand new car whether it's a £6000 Dacia or a hundred thousand pound plus Aston Martin,a Ferrari or anything inbetween then you would expect the car to be protected somewhat and be scratch/swirl or blemish free when you recieve your new acquasition from the dealership, unfortunately this is rarely the case .
New cars can and regularly do in our experience come from the dealership in a substandard condition either covered in swirls or fallout(small iron particles) some with scratches through poor dealership preparation.
Most dealerships will offer you Paint protection systems for anything between £150-£450 to protect your vehicle for up to ten years we are always in favour of protecting your investment.... but a word of Caution.
These paint protection systems are usually applied over the the faults described above ie; swirls,fallout scratches etc and are usually applied by staff that get very little out of the £300 you the customer have paid for this service also they are usually under a time constraint so the possibility to cut corners is always there.
Secondly the systems that come with 5-10 years guarantee usually require you the customer to apply after care creams and potions to top up the existing protection EVERYTIME YOU WASH THE VEHICLE something most of us never have either the time or the inclanation to do plus most of these systems are polymer based which at best will only last a year at best, (Some clients have called us with new cars that have had these systems "allegedly" applied failing after less than 6 months 6 weeks in one case.
The new range of super sealants ie; ceramic-nano-quartz based offer far superior protection and longevity and are ideal especially for softer paints on say Japenese paints for example.
Not all dealerships are like this tbh but we have dealt with alot that are and in our opinion this is not at all acceptable.
Our NEW CAR PROTECTION DETAIL is just that a Detail,Yes your car may be clean on arrival but we make it PERFECT.
We apply a crystaline nano coating which in itself offers at least 2 years protection and we top that with another sealant silo seal that offers 6-8 months protection on it's own,it is also to a degree 50% more scratch resistant than polymer coatings
Our NEW CAR PROTECTION DETAIL INVOLVES.
Dealership wax residue/Fallout is removed by clay bar /fallout remover or both.. Swirls/Scratches that may be present are removed by polishing to leave a perfect surface for your sealant to adhere to. The interior is fully protected with a nano protectant on upholstery -plastics dressed with a uv inhibitor plastic conditioner- leather conditioned/ sealed etc and this is the good bit because the applied exterior sealant WILL last years with minimum effort on your or our behalf with a 6 monthly top up of silo seal required and to remove tar deposits.
