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.
We saved around $1500 which was absolutely fantastic given that it resulted from only one web enquiry and five minutes of our time! Thankyou so much. And, yes, we will tell others of your service.
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.
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!
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!
I picked up my new Nissan Patrol on Friday afternoon. I would like to thank you for all the work you did on my behalf and the fantastic price you secured my new car for. It was so good not to have to do the rounds of the car yards and try to beat car sales people at what they do best. Your website was also great with tips on how to sell my other car as well as all the other information available on it. The dealership was very professional as well and the car was ready as promised and in a very nice condition.
I've been with the RACV for over 10 years. I just didn't realise what a premium I was paying for the service. Going with your car insurance recommendation and the roadside assist is saving me several hundred dollars every year!
Delivering what you promise is the foundation of good business. I am sure that's why you sell so many cars for people like myself. Keep up the good work!
This is by far the best money I have EVER spent. An outlay of just a few dollars saved me thousands - even on a limited edition vehicle! In fact, I saved so much I added a few optional accessories and still bought the vehicle at less than the retail price for the car alone (not to mention dealer delivery fees and charges). The savings didn't end there. I saved another bundle with the insurance you recommended (approx 33% less than another quote I already had). The savings here will continue for years to come! Not only will I be recommending your services to everyone I know, I will be using your services again myself. This is the ultimate car purchasing experience! Thank you again for your excellent service and attention to detail.
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!
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
