Four Ways to Extend the Life of Your Personal Vehicle

September 08, 2020

A recent study based on Apple Maps data shows the way the world moves has completely changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, more consumers are choosing to use personal vehicles over public transportation amid heightened safety concerns. As a result, cars are seeing a lot more mileage than normal.

The current economy and limited discretionary funds make holding onto vehicles longer a necessity these days. As a result of the increased usage, it’s vital to stay on top of maintenance and think about the long-term condition of your car, as well as protecting its value until the day you decide to sell it.

Luckily, getting your car back into its best shape doesn’t have to be overwhelming – Ziebart offers up a multitude of different services to extend the life of the vehicle you love and depend on. Our professionally trained and knowledgeable staff will walk you through a customized service plan created specifically for your vehicle, along with the benefits, costs and value of each service. With Ziebart, you’ll know that driving safe and protected are essential parts of owning a vehicle.

Here are just some of the services we offer that can help:

Exterior Detailing

However, those car washes can actually pose a serious threat to the exterior of your vehicle. Ziebart’s exterior detailing solutions elevate the exterior cleaning service with an in-depth, hands-on cleaning experience from the headlights to your trunk.

Our certified experts remove the dirt and residue caused by tree sap, bird droppings, road debris and other outside elements – making your car look as shiny as the day you bought it. Experience the personal touch and attention that a true detailing requires.

Protect the Exterior Paint

Ziebart’s Ceramic Z-Gloss® paint coating service adds a three-layer, long-lasting barrier of protection to your car. Z-Gloss® is a high-gloss finish that locks in your vehicle’s vibrant shine while being impact resistant, chemical resistant, acid rain resistant, UV resistant, scratch resistant, temperature resistant and water resistant – repelling dirt and debris. Most impressive of all is that you can throw out your wax and cloths, because you won’t have to wax for seven (that’s right, SEVEN) years!

Undercoating and Rust Protection

Your car is the second-largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime, and as you’re thinking of ways to protect your investment, the unseen areas, such as the undercarriage of your vehicle, are oftentimes overlooked.

That undercarriage accumulates a plethora of dirt, salt and moisture on the read, making it vulnerable to corrosion and damage that can go unnoticed until it’s too late. 

Undercoating and Rust ProtectionZiebart has been the world-leader in undercoating services since the 1950s – so you can rest assured your car’s underbody is in the right hands. Our trained professionals apply the thick, abrasive resistant, exclusive undercoating solution to your car’s underbody – making sure that they cover every area while carefully avoiding your brakes and the exhaust and drive shafts. Then they’ll apply our genuine rust protection sealant to the hood, trunk and all upper body panels.

With rust protection from Ziebart, you can be confident that you’ve protected the important investment you made in your vehicle. In fact, we are so confident in the effectiveness of our exclusive rust protection that we even have a national limited full-repair warranty to back it up.
