Most things you buy new arrive packaged perfectly and look completely flawless. So when you spend what, after your house is probably your biggest investment, you want it to arrive looking incredible right?


Unfortunately with cars, they have been moved, loaded, driven, handled and washed by many different people before the car finally reaches you. This amount of handling can mean that your car could arrive in a less then perfect condion, particularly the paint.

On new cars the paint often has defects such as swirls, scratches and holograms. We can fix these issues and take the depth and clarity of your cars paint to a level much higher than the factory finish.

If you book your new car in with us to be protected we can give you peace of mind from day one, but also by using the tips on this page, we can save you money and hand you back a car which looks better than new with protection to match.

If a cars paint isn't properly prepared for ceramic coating then the chances are that it will fail within a very short space of time. We follow the steps below to correctly clean, enhance, cleanse and then protect your cars paint with ceramic coatings.
