Treating your car with a ceramic coating can prevent it from rusting and dulling over time. A ceramic coating service will likely charge based on two factors of the service: preparation work, and the actual coating itself. Many different types of coatings exist, and each have their own price ranges.
The size of your vehicle is a large factor in the price of and amount of labor required to apply a full ceramic coat. Treatment for a hatchback with less surface area will not cost as much as a larger truck, for example.
There is also flexibility in the look your vehicle will have by the end of the treatment. A “showroom” look is not always necessary if it doesn’t fit your personal interests, and more affordable options exist to accommodate that. Paint repairs may also be available as part of the preparation work.
The reason a ceramic coating service may charge more money for their preparation work is because it is the foundation of a quality ceramic coating. The better the preparation, the more durable the coating. Many companies offer warranties or multi-year guarantees for their work.
Any company will be able to help you choose the best coating to suit your needs and explain their training to leave you confident in entrusting your vehicle to their services.
