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.
Just a brief note to say thanks for your outstanding service. You managed to find a dealer who was prepared to reduce the purchase by some $6750 inclusive of all costs and then you went further by haggling for a better trade in for me giving me a change over cost of exactly $13500 less... THAT I CALL SERVICE...I shall certainly be singing your praises.
I would like to thank you and your organisation for your assistance in the purchase of my new Hyundai Tiburon. As you are aware, I am Sales Manager of a busy company in Brisbane, and I did not have to leave my office once during the 4 days it took to find the car,organise trade-in,arrange for extras and deliver the car. I would have no hesitation in recomending your organisation to both, my friends and interested parties looking to purchase a new car. Thanks again and good luck in the future
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the discounts of RRP that the dealer was putting down, more than made up for the cost of the fog lights and the paint protection which I optioned in! I signed the dotted line and bought my first brand new Hyundai. I will take delivery less than a week after signing, which I find quite impressive.
WOW FACTOR!! For the sevice provided, the lovely people that are always a pleasure to deal with and the easy delivery of the new car that I requested - I am an extremely happy customer. I was lucky to stumble across the Carbroker.com.au website and have told friends and family that there is no better way to buy. Chris - thanks for doing a great deal for me in the purchase of the Toyota - saved me thousands of $$$ and found me a beautiful new car. Fantastic website & a lovely person to do business with. Cheers!!
I’d just like to comment on how smooth it was to purchase my car using your service. The finance broker you put me on to helped the hip pocket as much as the price you were able to secure for me. Thank you so much for making a major purchase easy, smooth and without buyer’s remorse. I will be looking you up when it comes time to replace our other car and I will continue to recommend you to all my family and friends
Negotiating a deal with a professional car salesman is tough and time-consuming, especially if you don't have a lot of local experience. Having someone act on your behalf creates an advantage that can't be ignored, and I have to say the $4,900 saving that I achieved off a $43,300 vehicle via Carbroker.com.au is definitely worth the minimal cost of registering an interest at the Carbroker.com.au web site. Thanks to Chris Wilson for this much-appreciated service.
We weren't sure what to expect when using this service. It turned out to be one of the cheapest, stress-free and best investments we've ever made! Within a few hours of our enquiry Carbroker.com.au came up with a deal that saved us 13% off the recommended retail price of a new car. Further, by using the advice provided to members regarding the sale of our used car we were able to get $1500 more than any previous trade-in offer in just a matter of hours! This is a fantastic service that in total, put about $5000.00 in OUR pocket - not the dealer's! We'll never buy another new car again without going straight to Carbroker.com.au!
A short note to say thanks for the professional and profitable service that you've just delivered to me. Getting the best price from the city and then translating to a country dealer in a small town made it a lot easier. You'd be surprised how many times we bump into each other, and taking the local personality out of the negotiation was much appreciated by both the dealer and myself.
I am impressed by your professional approach with your customers. Therefore, I have already recommended your service to my collegues, friends. I would again use your service in the future when I buy the next car for my wife. I will continue support you and your dealers in the future as you all are doing wonderful jobs!
