“It’s brand new! It shouldn’t need polishing!?”

Updated: Feb 15, 2021

It's essential that from day one, ensuring new cars are ready for the road with the best possible protection and finish throughout. New car preparations are often overlooked. “It’s brand new! It shouldn’t need polishing!?”

You’d expect a new car to be delivered and presented with the utmost of care, boasting flawless paintwork and perfect in every way (with nothing to hide).



Unfortunately, this is rarely the case! We’ve seen it all. From resprayed panels on Ford’s, to sanding marks and machine buffertrails on Ferrari’s. Whether it’s a 10.000 city car or a 300.000 super car, it’s nice to be able to know the whole story.


Storage conditions, damage in transportation and at the factory and poor, unskilled preparation at the Dealership can lead to a whole array of defects and problem areas that may need addressing. These include: fine scratches, surface marring, factory induced sanding marks, machine holograms, bird lime etching, metallic fallout and lacquer “fish eyes” to name but a few.


Although you’re likely to be offered the in-house ‘paint protection packages’ with “5 years protection”, “no more polishing” and other such big claims, in reality, they offer poor value for money (package’s such as Supaguard, LifeShine, DiamondBrite and Gard X). These products are often applied incorrectly and over poorly prepared paint finishes as the in-house valet team are given strict timescales with minimal training on how to correctly prepare and protect your newly purchased pride and joy.


Our New Car Detail typically takes 1-2 days (not 1-2 hours) and comprises of some of the industries’ finest tools, chemicals and coatings; protecting your investment for 12 months. Giving paintwork unrivalled UV resistance, dirt repellency, easy clean and swirl resistance thanks to the state of the art PTFE shield our carnauba waxes carry. With our New Car Detail Extra’s Pack, alloy wheels are removed to be coated inside and out, exterior glass sealed with a durable rain repellent, interior upholstery treated to a scotch guard fabric protectant and leather seats receiving a water-based dirt & dye transfer barrier. All in, the best start in life for your investment.


We advise to ask the supplying Dealership not to touch the car prior to collection. No wash. No polish… This way, we reduce the need for costly paint correction services where fine scratches and swirls from bad contact could have easily been induced in the preparation stages.
