Duane’s Tips for maintaining your car’s resale value

This month we are covering more tips on looking after your paint and clear coat on your new car.

The best time to start looking after your paint and clear coat on your brand new car is while it’s still new. Don’t wait until the paint on your car and its clear coat starts to fade or lose its shine.

The good news is that you don’t have to spend lots of money on paint protection. I can provide an ongoing protection plan to protect your new car to protect its paint and clear coat from damage. However, don’t leave it too long after buying your car otherwise the paint will start to get irreversibly damaged particularly in the warmer months of the year leading up to and including summer. Darker coloured cars like black, dark blue, grey and even red, the paint gets a lot hotter than say a white or lighter coloured car. Take action as early as possible to maintain that new car look and feel.

I’m a professional detailer and I can use my car as an example; I bought a brand new Holden VF Commodore Sports Wagon in 2013. From the new I wash and wax it every 2 weeks to keep it looking pristine. I get comments from the Holden Dealership of the quality of cleanliness of my car inside and out when it goes in for scheduled servicing. The sales and service team say that my car looks like I just drove it out of the showroom floor, and it’s already 3 years old.

You wouldn’t buy a brand new car and not get it mechanically serviced, so why would you risk damaging the resale value of your car by not keeping the paint and clear coat on your car maintained, particularly in Queensland where the sun’s damage is more prevalent.

As a professional, I use only quality cleaning products and applicators to ensure that every car I work on looks its best, every time. That’s my quality guarantee.

If you want to have a chat about what I can do for you and your car, call me on 0411 672 800. I mostly give quotes on cleaning and detailing your car after I have come out to see it.
