NEW CAR DETAIL
PROTECT | PRICE FROM £399
Are you looking to purchase a new car? At the dealership they will often offer you after care packages normally by Supaguard, Williams or Autoglym. These attractive packages offer a "detailer style" prep on your new car + a top coat of either wax or a ceramic coating. Not saying all dealers are the same but it is quite often these coatings are not properly applied and results in short life span. At FCD we are able to provide ceramic coatings which are for professional use only. Professionally applied for a longer durability.
Coating and protecting your vehicle from day one makes your life easier. Your paint stays glossy for longer and most importantly it is easier to clean. Working with many local dealers we are able to take collection of your new car direct to our Christchurch, UK based detailing studio where we can professionally detail and prepare your car using authorised detailer products including Gtechniq's Crystal Serum Ultra.
