With a new car, you would expect the car to be presented with the upmost care boasting flawless paintwork with no marks, scratches or swirls. However, this generally isn’t the case. Storage conditions, transportation and poor PDI preparation at the dealership can cause an array of paint defects, marks and scratches before you even receive the vehicle! Light swirls, scratches, bird lime etching, wet sanding marks and polishing holograms are just a few to name.
Dealers are likely to offer their in-house ‘protection packages’ with ‘5 years protection’ and ‘no more washing required’. In reality, these packages are poor value for money (brands such as Supaguard, Lifeshine, Diamondbrite and Gard X). These products are generally applied incorrectly and over poorly prepped paint from the in-house valet department that are on tight timescales with minimal training on how to properly prepare and protect your new vehicle.
Paintwork is inspected for defects and thickness measured using a paint depth gauge to highlight and repainted or areas of high risk before paint correction is carried out.
A single stage correction process is carried out to remove light swirling, surface defects, enhance gloss and prepare paint for protection. (A two stage correction process may need to be carried out dependant on condition of vehicle – will be looked at upon inspection)
Paintwork evaluated for any deeper paintwork defects (e.g. sanding marks, random deep swirls) where a localised correction will take place.
Exhausts, grilles and badges are treated and protected (where applicable)
The paintwork is then treated to a Swissvax specific high grade carnauba wax, ensuring a durable layer of protection. We’ll talk you through our range of waxes upon inspection of the vehicle.
Windows cleaned using a high alcohol content specific glass cleaner
Tyres are dressed
Exterior trim and other plastics (where applicable) are dressed
