Rust is the enemy of all cars and trucks. Your vehicle is always at risk of a rust invasion if you live in a coastal or salt sprayed area. Getting your vehicle protected may be the best option for keeping it on the road for longer, and for its resale value.
All vehicles come with some kind of corrosion warranty. But this is only valid for mistakes during the manufacturing process, and not due to natural oxidisation of the vehicle body. Over time, the small scratches, dings, and chips expose the bare metal layer of your vehicle chassis.And after water ingress, it beginsto rust.
Why have Rust protection?
Rust protection saves your vehicle.
Mark From Preserve Protect said “If you own a classic, rare, or expensive vehicle, then often values of these go up over time. With rust protection, you know that the body is protected and will maintain its rust-free condition for a good while.”
Keeps your car chassis safe.
With a rust invasion, your car is weakened. During an accident or even normal driving, cars with heavy rust patches will not only fail MOTs but will also be less structurally sound when protecting you in an incident.
Saves you money over the long run
With the correct rust protection, your car won’t need expensive welding or body panel replacement. A simple inspection from a rust proofing company will go a long way in assessing the condition of your car’s undercarriage, arches, suspension, and body panels. They will also advise if a rust proofing application is required.
Preserving the looks of your vehicle.
If your pride and joy is protected against rust, even the harshest winters and salt roads will not cause rusting. Any car enthusiast does not want to see their expensive model contaminated with rust, looking roughand unreliable.
More attractive to buyers
If the vehicle has been rustproofed, potential buyers will see how well it has been taken care of during inspection. This makes the car sell much easier and in most cases for a higher amount. Buyers also assume that if a car is rust protected, it has been properly maintained and serviced over your ownership.
Prevents Mechanical Issues
Pipes, metalwork, and powertrain components are all housed on the vehicle’s underbody. If you have the correct rust protection, these components will last longer. Preventing mechanical issues and catastrophic engine failure in the future, where you may have a major fuel or oil leak as a result of not rustproofing.
Extend the Life and Improve the Value of your Vehicle
If you live near the ocean, or where salt spraying roads is common (especially in colder climates) then rust proofing is the way forward. Not only does it prevent expensive repairs, but it also leaves you with stress free ownership. The best rust proofing will make a vehicle last longer on the road and increase its value too.
If you are keeping your car for years ahead, then rustproofing is essential. Even after a few years of ownership, rust proofing is always good for the next buyer. It shows them you have taken good care of your vehicle and can result in achieving a higher resale value.
