In a word YES, it is all too common for brand new vehicles to be delivered with several defects present in the paint finish & across other areas of the car. Common defects include paint marring, sanding marks, and machine polishing holograms left from the factory production line. More disappointing is the fact most dealerships do not have the time or skilled staff available on-site to diligently correct these defects before handover, instead, all that is typically offered is a basic valet which often does more harm than good.
Optionally customers are offered an in-house or sub contracted new car paint protection package which in the vast majority of cases is improperly applied with little to no machine polishing process, carried out in a limited time frame, offes limited protection, overstates longevity and worryingly, can temporally hide defects.
If these thoughts concern you, Valliant Detailing is happy to take on new car deliveries ensuring vehicles are correctly and meticulously prepared with the very best warranted surface treatments applied from the outset. Protecting key surfaces including paintwork, glass, alloy wheels and interior surfaces from day one will ensure that they remain easy to keep clean and are protected throughout your ownership. Specialist sealants and ceramic coatings aid in preventing harmful everyday contaminants, such as bird droppings, tar, road salt and bug remains from permanently etching paintwork or other exterior surfaces.
