New Car Paint Protection

You would expect your new vehicle to be delivered with a high quality finish and adequate paint protection, but unfortunately this is rarely the case. This is often a result of incorrect storage conditions, transportation damage and poor dealership preparation by volume focused valeters. This then leads to brand new vehicles being delivered to the customers with swirl marks, light scratches and a poor surface finish. These defects are often ignored by the dealership who will view a newly delivered vehicle as perfect. Worse yet, they will often tempt you into impressive sounding lifetime paint protection packages that claim the almost impossible. In reality, it is the same valeters that hurriedly washed your new vehicle with one bucket and a sponge that are left to apply these generic paint sealants, often with less than adequate time nor training and with minimum attention to detail. To make matters worse this lifetime protection rarely lasts anywhere near the duration that is quoted.

Autovalet thinks your new vehicle deserves something much better. Our New Car Paint Protection detail includes complete paintwork decontamination followed by a single stage machine polish to enhance gloss levels significantly. This will be in the form of either a premium carnauba wax or a professional grade paint sealant. We also offer superb ceramic paint protection which can be applied at an additional cost.

Our New Car Paint Protection detail has been specifically designed to ensure that your new vehicle begins its life in the best possible way and is fully protected for the future. We will safely prepare your new purchase in the way that it deserves before applying quality products to all exterior surfaces. These provide great protection, easy maintenance and amazing levels of gloss.
