“It’s brand new! It shouldn’t need polishing!?”
New car preparation often overlooked. Factory poor finish, storage conditions, transportation and unskilled pre-delivery detail at dealership lead to array of paint defects and problem areas that may need addressing. Although you’re likely to be offered the in-house ‘paint protection packages’ with “5 years protection” and other such big claims, in reality, they offer poor value for money. 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.
It is advised 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.
