As we welcome 2024 and the inevitable tax return season, many of us are thinking about wise investments. For car enthusiasts and vehicle owners in West Kansas City, protecting your daily driver or collectible should be at the top of your list. This is a major reason why several proactive car owners use their tax returns on auto surface protection in Kansas City.
At Ceramic Pro West Kansas City, we understand the importance of maintaining your car’s aesthetic and structural integrity.
But we also recognize that this is an investment in the value of your vehicle. That’s why we’re here to guide you on how to invest your 2023 tax return in auto surface protection, ensuring your vehicle not only looks great but also retains its value over time.
Why Invest in Auto Surface Protection in Kansas City?
Living in Kansas City introduces multiple environmental and road-related conditions that can quickly damage the exterior and interior of your vehicle. From the blowing dust and debris that hits your car in the summer, to ice, snow, and road salt that can quickly stain your paintjob, all year long your vehicle is a target.
Auto surface protection, including ceramic coatings, paint protection film (PPF), and window tinting, is not just about enhancing your vehicle’s appearance. These measures are a proactive way to safeguard your investment against environmental hazards, wear and tear, and the harsh Midwestern weather.
Ceramic Coatings: The Ultimate Exterior Environmental Shield
Ceramic coatings have revolutionized car care. This liquid polymer, when professionally applied by experts like us at Ceramic Pro Elite West Kansas City, forms a chemical bond with your vehicle’s paint.
It creates a layer of protection that is resistant to scratches, UV rays, and chemical stains. Investing in ceramic coating means less maintenance, a constant glossy look, and enhanced paint life. At our Elite Dealer, we offer Ceramic Pro ION – the world’s first ION coating, that is offered in 7-year or lifetime protection packages.
And the best news – you can likely have your entire exterior of the vehicle coated for what most of us receive with their IRS Federal Tax returns. Also, installing coatings in March and April in Kansas City are optimal – for the installer and the customer.
Paint Protection Film: Invisible Armor from Road Debris
For those who want to take protection up a notch, Paint Protection Film (PPF) is the answer. This transparent, urethane material acts as a skin over your car’s paint. It shields against rock chips, scratches, and contaminants.
PPF is especially recommended for high-impact areas like front bumpers, hoods, and side mirrors. If you don’t want to invest in the excessive cost of a full vehicle paint protection film wrap, you can invest in the Ultimate Armor package – which includes PPF on the high strike areas mentioned above + Ceramic Pro ION coatings on all other exterior surfaces.
Window Tinting: Beyond Aesthetics
Window tinting is not just about giving your car a sleek, mysterious look. Quality window tints block harmful UV rays, keeping your car’s interior from fading and reducing your exposure to skin-damaging sunlight.
Plus, luxury window tint like Ceramic Pro KAVACA Ultimate IR helps in maintaining a cooler cabin during our scorching West Kansas City summers, making your driving experience more comfortable. It’s developed to block heat-producing infrared radiation, up to 97% of it in fact when installed to the interior of your automotive glass.
Additionally, you’d be surprised how affordable full window tint installation in Kansas City can be.
The Return on Investment (ROI)
Investing your tax return in auto surface protection provides immediate and long-term benefits. The most obvious is the enhanced appearance, but it goes beyond that. These protections increase your vehicle’s resale value, prolong its lifespan, and save you money on maintenance and repairs in the long run.
Improved Exterior Longevity
The constant bombardment of UV radiation, salt (from mag chloride sprayed on the roads during winter), and natural toxins like bug guts, bird droppings, and pollen are primary reasons why your paint and exterior materials fade and lose their luster. Applying a ceramic coating or paint protection film will block those contaminants from impacting the painted surfaces – even trim, headlights, and other materials.
Protect the Interior
UV is the biggest threat to the dashboard, seating, infotainment display screens, and other interior materials. Window film installed by Ceramic Pro Elite West Kansas City helps to block 99.9% of harmful UV Rays. Going the extra mile by having our team protect those materials with a ceramic coating helps to reduce staining caused by liquids, pens, jeans, and normal wear and tear.
Increased Resale Value
If you prefer to sell your vehicle via the private route vs trading at the dealership, you’ll have the flexibility to increase your asking price. All Ceramic Pro coatings, PPF, and Window Films are protected by documented warranties on your Carfax vehicle history report. This warranty is attached to the VIN, so if you sell it, it transfers to the new owner.
