“It sells the car for me”

That’s what one of our long-term customers say to us. They are talking about our spray and wipe application technique with our patented Formula 184, which repairs the paint chips without having to do any full panel respraying.

Here’s how you can benefit by working with Final Touch:

  • When you offer Final Touch Paint Repair Technology, it’s a great opportunity for up-selling new services and improving your customer satisfaction scores.
  • When word gets around how well-presented and well-maintained your cars are, you’ll have an effective tool for attracting new customers and bringing back previous ones.
  • You’ll minimise expensive reconditioning costs on existing stock and trade-ins, fleet lease or rental returns improving inventory turnover times while removing those costly negotiation points with customers.

What makes Final Touch different?

Our clients, large and small, get the most benefit from us, by having us present every vehicle they bring into stock.

After a Final Touch service, the car looks like new. It takes a fraction of the time and cost of a re-spray. This means you can combine it with a regular vehicle service and your customers will be thrilled that it not only drives like new but looks pristine.

We’re continuously developing our paint system, which has been scientifically formulated. The secret is our patented Formula 184, which works chemically with our paint to give that invisible repair and superior finish

Final Touch PRT repairs are centered on an environmentally friendly ‘repair not replace’ philosophy that is now being adopted throughout the automotive industry

We use very few amounts of chemicals and solvents to achieve our smart chip repairs, which has a minimal effect on the environment compared to a full re-spray
