New Car Paint Protection

Our New Car Paint Protection Detail has been specifically designed to ensure that your new vehicle begins its life in the best possible way and is fully protected for the future. We will safely prepare your new purchase in the way that it deserves before applying quality products to all exterior surfaces. These provide great protection, easy maintenance and amazing levels of gloss.

You would expect your new vehicle to be delivered with a high quality finish and adequate paint protection, but unfortunately this is rarely the case. This is often a result of incorrect storage conditions, transportation damage and poor dealership preparation by volume focused valeters. This then leads to brand new vehicles being delivered to the customers with swirl marks, light scratches and a poor surface finish. These defects are often ignored by the dealership who will view a newly delivered vehicle as perfect. Worse yet, they will often tempt you into impressive sounding lifetime paint protection packages that claim the almost impossible. In reality, it is the same valeters that hurriedly washed your new vehicle with one bucket and a sponge that are left to apply these generic paint sealants, often with less than adequate time nor training and with minimum attention to detail. To make matters worse this lifetime protection rarely lasts anywhere near the duration that is quoted.

New car preperation detail exceeds dealership preparation

Detail Your Eyecandy thinks your new vehicle deserves something much better. Our New Car Paint Protection Detail includes complete paintwork decontamination followed by a single stage machine polish to enhance gloss levels significantly. Then if required, further localised machine polishing is carried out. Any defects, including light swirl marks and fine scratches incurred during transit and the pre delivery inspection will be removed from the paintwork prior to the protection being applied. This will be discussed with you prior to the detail, ensuring that the product selected best suits your requirements. Swissvax Shield Wax is included as standard but you may wish to upgrade to another type of protection that is more durable such as a ceramic coating. Please see list at the bottom of the page.

Clay bar decontamination
Although your vehicle is new, it is highly likely that it has been subject to contaminants prior to and during transportation. This is shown here on a new Audi A7 where a clay bar has been used. If this contamination is not removed the protection applied will not bond to the lacquer and will wash away within weeks.
