Premium Services & Products

While we cover all car makes and models, our specialty is maintaining higher end vehicles. We have different levels of products/services to cater for the level of vehicle/work to be completed. Any level of work can be completed on any vehicle, from regular valets, through to perfecting the overall appearance using correct methods, products and knowledge.

  • All prices are “starting prices” and are subject to change, depending on vehicle condition
  • Paint Correction and Paint Protection work should be inspected before confirmation of work and price

Paint Correction – (1-4 days)

To what a lot of people call a “Cut & Polish”, Paint Correction is much, much more technical than that simple expression. Paint Correction is essentially being able to perfect the paintwork, in stages. Removing swirls, holograms, water spots, bird poo etchings and scratches can take several stages of Compounding, depending on the severity of the damaged surface.

  • Single Stage Correction will improve the paintwork to approx. 40-50% for harder paints, and 50-70% for softer paints, and this may be all that is needed to have the desired result. The initial condition of the paint will also contribute to how much difference is made. Lighter coloured cars can sometimes only require this level of Correction.
  • Multi-Stage Correction will take the improvement level to approx. 70-99%, and significantly improve the finish, with increased gloss, and clarity, while removing all but the heaviest scratches in the paint. First stage is a heavy compounding to remove defects, followed by a finishing/light compounding to increase the resultant gloss and clarity. Further stages used include heavier compounding and wet rubbing. Darker coloured cars will generally require at least 2 stages of Correction.
  • Given the differences in paint types, condition and colour, prices for multi stage correcting will vary – hence why we give a “starting” price as an indication. Vehicle inspection is essential, so we can find out your expectations and budget, and talk about what we can deliver. You even find that some areas of the vehicle will need extra stages of correcting. For example, the bonnet/roof/boot may require more work due to being in the elements more of the time than the doors for example. This is why it can sometimes be hard to give a firm price without visually inspecting the car, and taking paint depth readings to ascertain the required work.
    All vehicles will have paint depth measured to see how much paint we can safely work with, and a test area is begun to work out the best combination to get the desired result.

To start the process, vehicle is pre washed, followed with a thorough wash including door jambs. Thorough decontamination (both chemical and mechanical – clay bar) follows to clean the paint surface. Paint depth readings are taken over the whole car to ascertain not only the depth, but how much work will be required to be carried out. A test area is started to work out which compound combination to use. All cars need to be treated as individuals – what worked on one car, may not work on the next car. Vehicle is taped up to protect areas of the car like door rubbers, body plastics, windows and lenses etc. The relevant stages of compounding begin.

Once compounding is complete, a glossing layer is completed to further extract gloss and prepare a base for protection. Two layers of Sealant are applied to surface, to lock in the finished result. Again, depending on how the car is maintained, the protection may generally last up to 6 months, but can be longer due to personal circumstances.

Interior and exterior windows are cleaned, wheels/ tyres/body plastics are cleaned and dressed.

Paint Protection (Ceramic-based Glass Coating) – 2 days minimum

Why Paint Protection? Your car is generally your second most expensive investment you make – the first usually being your house. You have spent a considerable amount of money, so why not protect it? Your car is out in the elements, the heat from the sun, the UV also from the sun, industrial fallout, acid rain, bird poo… These will affect the paint work on your car, reducing the gloss and clarity, and leaving a rough feeling on the surface. And regular washing of your vehicle, while great, simply isn’t enough to maintain your car. And let’s face it – we’re all time poor! You can coat your car in a wax – that may last 1-2 months. You can coat your car in synthetic waxes or Sealants – that may last around 6 months. Our Coating will last at least 2 years. The Coating itself is just one part of the service provided. It’s the preparation that is the major key to the Coating being effective, and then it is the maintenance that ensures the Coating continues to do what it is intended to do.

The Coating we offer is CarPro Cquartz Finest. It is the most exclusive glass coating available, due to it only being available to authorised and trained technicians, that are hand selected to be able to gain access to this amazing product. And we are an Authorised Applicator of Cquartz Finest.

CarPro Cquartz Finest is a ceramic based glass coating, which when it cures, adds a sacrificial layer that is much harder than the clear coat already on your car. Finest is extremely Hydrophobic – its ability to repel water is extreme. It is the richest, deepest and highest gloss coating available. Bug splatter is much easier to get off as the acids from the bugs won’t penetrate the coating. Yes, you still need to remove the bugs, but the time it takes for the damage to occur, is much longer due to the coating. Your car will be much easier to maintain, as dust, dirt and contaminants do not bond to Cquartz Finest, like they do with paint even with a wax or sealant. Due to the extra hardness of the coating, Cquartz Finest has been proven to resist fine swirls, and it is still important to continue to use high quality mitts and drying towels to maintain your vehicle.

Having a Coating on your car, doesn’t now mean you can sit back and forget about looking after your car. You still need to maintain it. It still needs to be regularly washed, and looked after, and done so with the right products. As part of our service, you will receive a Maintenance Kit – free of charge – for you to maintain your Coated vehicle. The items in the kit, individually have a value of over $75.
