It’s more than a vanity thing. Yes, car waxing can make your car super shiny, but it also has several benefits to protect your auto investment, enhance its beauty, longevity, and even make you a better driver. Here are just a few reasons you should be adding waxes to your upcoming Spiffy services that are more than skin deep.

Scratch Protection

It sounds obvious, but waxing provides a first line defense against dings and scratches to your paint job. It can’t prevent the damage completely (being a safe driver helps), but it can keep minor scratches from forming and stop them from getting any deeper. Not to mention, wax creates a slippery surface over your car’s paint, making dirt less likely to stick and degrade its surface.

Save Money on Inspections and Repairs

With more American drivers choosing to lease their cars, protecting themselves from additional cost and liability is a concern. At the end of a lease period, your dealership will inspect your car for damage, which includes scratches, discoloration, or other surface blemishes that weren’t there before. If anything is found, it could be coming out of your pocket. Regular waxing may take a little time and investment upfront, but will save you money in the long-term.

It Can Make You a Better Driver

Regular car washing and cleaning makes for a safer ride. Think about it: having a cleaner, shinier car can help you feel more eager to drive and more at ease behind the wheel. If you are committed to vacuuming, washing, and waxing your car, you are more likely to make better choices on the road to protect it as well.

Spiffy Makes It Easy

Unlike your parents, you no longer have to give up your Sunday afternoon to meticulously rubbing carnauba wax onto your car’s lacquer. With Spiffy, you can get your car waxed anywhere. Best of all, many of our services, such as the Spiffy and Shine, the Awesome Detail, and our luxe Totally Awesome Detail service include a carefully executed hand wax to restore your car’s finish to like-new condition and improve its resale value.
