This time of year we are doing a lot of Tourer’Shield’ paint protection work. It normally starts in February when people are collecting their new Caravans or Motorhomes, and tends to have a spike in this service after major shows like the NEC Caravan and Motorhome show in Birmingham. I’ve already gone into the details of why it’s so important to have a Caravan or Motorhome protected from new on a previous blog, so I won’t go into any depth this time.
This blog is more to show a slightly different Caravan that the owner booked for us to apply our paint protection on. The owner wasn’t sure about these services as he was new to the hobby, but after doing his research, he called us, because he mentioned that our name kept coming up from different forums and previous customers. This is something see a lot of, and a huge amount of our work is from recommendations on line.
Here we have the amazing compact Eriba he wanted sealing. These stunning little caravans pack one hell of a punch when it comes to quality and what you get for your money..
Not only do they look amazing, they are easy to store, and simple to tow. Another huge plus is they hold their value better than many other Caravans in the UK.
Now, theses beauties are built quite differently to most other UK Caravans, using a full Aluminium body, and only a Fibreglass pop up roof. They are also painted using similar processes to a car, and the quality of the finish is as good as it gets in this industry. As explained before with the fact that Aluminums tend to go cloudy after several years (Just look at some of the older silver Hymers) our Tourershield product will prevent this from happening, providing all our simple aftercare instructions are followed. This not only maintains it’s high residual value, but also makes washing the Caravan a far easier task. The owner lived in the Leeds area, and he paid around £300 for us to travel from Leicester for this service. This is compared to the dealers price of £400. As per most of my customers, he was a little sceptical that letting the dealer apply this product, might not yeild the same quality as an independent smaller business with a reputation like ours. We are not in business to compare what we offer with other companies. We let the customers make that choice, but we find that almost every time we are chosen, it’s not because of the price, it’s the reputation, and that means a lot to myself and my colleagues.
