New Car Protection Detail

You would expect a brand new car to be delivered with flawless paintwork, however, this is rarely the case.  There are several reasons for this:

  • Storage conditions.

  • Transportation damage or poor preparation during a pre-delivery valet due to inexperienced ‘fleet’ valeting companies.

When purchasing your new pride and joy the dealership will often try and sell and promote their own “lifetime paintwork protection system” which they say will protect your car for the lifetime of your ownership, not only is this almost impossible but the products used are merely sub standard polishes.  More often that not inexperienced fleet workers who often cause more damage than good apply these products.  When a dealership prepares your New Car they will spend 1-2 hours maximum, when Detail Driven prepares your New Car, I will spend 3 days minimum!

This option differs from a protection detail as a new car requires meticulous inspection for damage, marring, scratching and localized defect correction carried out.  It is suggested you ask your dealer not to wash your new vehicle at all, or at least do the bare minimum.  Detail Driven will spend the time inspecting the vehicle post delivery for any imperfections or damage, where possible minor imperfections and damage will be removed and if required via machine polisher.

Your pride and joy is then treated to some of the most durable, refined products currently available to the industry.  Ceramic coatings are applied to Paintwork, Glass, Wheels and Trim.  All interior surfaces are then cleaned and protected from leather to plastic or fabric to rubber every surface is cleaned and treated, not only for protection but to maximise its appearance and prolong its appearance for as long as possible.
