Paint Protection and Fabric Protection
Paint ProtectionThere are vast differences in the paint protection products currently on the market. The first step is to make sure you learn what is good vs. what is bad. We strongly recommend using Toughseal for both old and new cars.
- Withstands temperatures far beyond any natural wax without breaking down
- Protects against ultra violet rays
- Blocks out corrosion
- Won’t crack or fall off
- Repels foreign matters
- No resins, plastics or waxes
- Protects, preserves and beautifies
- Creates a “wet look”
- Reduces “orange peel”
Toughseal protects against the following:
- Bird droppings
- Hard water
- Dirt (from penetrating the paint)
- Salt water
- Most aerosols used in vandalism
- Acid rain
- UV rays
Paint protection is ideally applied by yourself as it saves a lot of money. Having a dealer apply paint protection means you may end up with an inferior product, and you have to pay stamp duty and/or luxury car tax charges. The preferred method of application can be ranked as follows:
- Applying it yourself – especially for brand new cars. It gives you an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the car, and detect any paint imperfections that may be present.
Paint protection application professionals are usually able to fix minor dents and scratches on used cars, so if you have a used car with a few minor dents and scratches, you should consider going with a professional.
- A detailing professional. As stated above, these professionals can often perform other services at the same time.
- Car dealer. If you choose to go with the car dealer to apply paint protection, you need to be able to trust the manager who is responsible for preparing your car for delivery, as well as the staff who apply the product. Dealers are notorious for cutting costs in this area and may not apply the paint protection in the correct way. Read more about paint protection here.
Fabric protection does work. It provides a very resistant protection for the interior. Fabric protection is available in 2 forms: Solvent based and water based. The two types provide the same protection, with the only differences being the fumes, and the amount of time taken to dry. Professionals use solvent based products as they need quick drying. If you apply your own fabric protection, you will probably prefer a water based product. Less than $30 easily covers 5 seats, and it dries overnight, leaving your entire car protected and ready to go in the morning. Click here to buy.
Thank you for the service. The advice was good and the price reasonable. The dealer came to me at work both to value the trade in and to deliver the new car.
I drove around in my old car most of today and decided that I really had enough of it. Your quoted price of $18,200 is at least $1,000 cheaper than any of the others; I have been to three different dealers and haggled all day long.
Thank you very much for an excellent service. I will certainly recommend you to all and any prospective car-buyers I come across in the future.
Just picked up the Madza and we are both delighted with the price and the service. Your service is brilliant ... I can't of a better way to buy a new car. On behalf of Val and myself a BIG THANK YOU!
Don't know how you achieve your prices but it certainly makes a difference, avoids the hassle of dealing with salesmen and has been excellent value for money. Will definitely recommend your services to family and friends.
Chris, You are a champ. Your advice on the trade-in worked a treat. I have a buyer at $14,280. A cool $2280 above the original figure! Thanks mate!
Just a short note to say thank you for brokering the purchase of my new car. The MX-5 is fantastic and what's even better is the great price you negotiated for me. The Paint Protection went on with ease and the finish is superb. I'm glad you recommended it. The entire experience has been a positive one for me. I will gladly recommend your company to any of my friends or family who are thinking of purchasing a vehicle in the future.
Just a note to say a HUGE THANK-YOU for your services. You were very prompt in replying, and saved us $3000 on the purchase of our new car (almost 10% on the total cost of the car). With a young family, that's a huge saving for us. Thank-you again.
Being a single woman, the thing I appreciated most was not being ripped off by sleazy car salesmen. I actually paid much less than a guy working in my office who bought (almost) the same car!
All I wanted was to buy a car with no hassle and at a decent price. I was very happy with your service and I will use you again in the future. I guess that says it all, doesn't it?
