We began installing PPF at our Hampshire showroom almost a decade ago. Since our first installation, it became apparent that while every client wants to take advantage of the film’s protective and self-healing benefits, overall, each customer’s needs vary. That is why we offer PPF installation customised for your lifestyle.
When you first approach us about PPF installation, we’ll generally chat about where you live, where you drive, how often you use your car and what you use it for. Only then can we recommend the best coverage options for you.
PPF Installation Customised for Your Lifestyle:
If you’re commuting on a motorway, travelling twenty thousand miles a year in all weathers, your coverage needs will be very different to someone who uses a car at the weekend for an early Sunday morning drive to Goodwood or out for a pub lunch with the family.
If you intend to use your car for long journeys, driving tours or track days, we’ll discuss with you the areas of your vehicle that are likely to suffer more damage.
Full Coverage vs. Partial Coverage:
With PPF, you can find a cost-effective solution to cover the most vulnerable parts of your vehicle. Indeed, our recommendations around full or partial coverage for your vehicle will always come down to your needs and not necessarily the value of your vehicle.
On a complicated paint job on a composite-panelled car, we’d usually recommend you opt for full PPF! But equally, for a family estate car being used for the school run, shopping, holidays, work commute, or sitting at the station or airport, there is a strong argument for total PPF coverage. The vehicle will likely be exposed to the worst risks in all these circumstances.
Rural vs. Urban Use:
Rural living is often more challenging on cars day to day. Roads tend to be more gritty and narrower with scratch-inducing hedges. Often, rural drivers are back and forth along country lanes to take care of animals or just on the school run. These trips can take a massive toll on car paintwork.
Urban living has different risks for your paintwork. It might expose the car to more parking knocks, environmental contamination, and perhaps even the risk of crime–keying.
Best Coverage for Your Budget:
Budget is important for most people. So, we will always offer you options.
For example, if you live rurally and drive those narrow lanes, we might install PPF on the front and passenger sides instead of film on the whole car. This is where most damage occurs. So you’ll get the protection you need but within a reasonable budget.
