Retain reseller value, ensure that your vehicle is thoroughly cleaned inside and out to a professional standard, provide basic maintenance packages for after care, provide show quality results for any make or model vehicle, ensures that the methods and equipment used on your vehicle are of a high standard and not detramental to the finished result.
Doesn't an automatic car wash do the same thing?
No! It is highly recommended NOT to use an automatic car wash, as it can ruin and damage the paintwork, trims, and other surfaces on your vehicle. The primary cause of this is due to the chemicals and products they use in these processes as they are lower grade and can strip existing protective products off your car, and/or further erode not only the products and coatings already on the car, but potentially your seals and trims as well.

Real paint protection is the skill of applying a high technology coating to the paint finish of your car to help protect it for for years, rather than months, against the harsh Australian elements such as sun, rain, hail, salt, trees, stones etc.

How often do I need to have my car detailed?
Varies from client to client. Dependant upon how frequently car is used, distances travelled, initial state of vehicle, frequency that it is washed inbertween and the products/methods used, if it's been detailed previously, package purchased, and products applied. As a general/average rule of thumb, twice a year, with 1 full detail and a follow up 6 months later to evaluate the state of the surfaces protected and establish whether reapplication is requierd.
