New Car Detail

At The Matt Finish, I understand that a newly acquired vehicle can be a costly experience.

At the end of the purchase, the majority of dealerships will try to upsell a protection package from many different companies such as Guard X, Superguard, Lifeshine etc.  

What is not disclosed to you is generally the cars are normally well below standards that a new car's condition should come in at, and when the protection applied via their valeters that are normally rushed it seals in marks caused in transportation and the wash stage at the dealership. This, therefore, will not give the protection that you have was sold and described in the purchase.

At The Matt Finish, I take away this part of the stressful process. I offer a thorough package, which will remove any paintwork inflicted swirls from the transport process and dealer washes.  The protection chosen will also give the protection that your car deserves as it heads out onto the open roads. This can with the dealerships permission mean that your car can have the treatment it deserves all before you come to pick up your new purchase.

Due to the nature of this process, this package must be completed indoors. This can be provided at TheMattFinish HQ in Sittingbourne or at a client choosing with adequate space and amenities if not available to be carried out at the dealership. Click here for more details on the unit
