As much of the world presses on with shelter-in-place policies designed to stall the spread of the coronavirus, many individuals look for alternative activities to ease the burden of boredom. Automotive enthusiasts everywhere are finding their escape behind the wheel on backcountry roads, during an early crisp morning drive with the top down in a cabriolet, or on a late evening cruise with the sunroof open chasing the full moon that follows every turn. This may be exactly the kind of social distancing and heart racing excitement one needs as restrictions halt some normal routines. It gives new meaning to the term, “Getaway Car!”
It’s the freedom to go where you want and the control to do that in the manner of your choosing. This rather unique emotion is accentuated further when driving a new or like new car on a great scenic road. Press the pedal or twist the throttle and feel the connection between operator and machine.
Auto Shield Columbia knows and understands the pride of new car ownership. They love that new car smell, a breathtaking design, and the rumble of the engine. Today’s new car is packed full of safety features, performance, and technology. Auto Shield Columbia has an appreciation for all makes and models. They understand the value in both the economy, everyday compact as well as the race track inspired, weekend performance car.
Auto Shield Columbia also shares an owner’s efforts to keep his or her car looking shiny and new. “We are committed to providing a defense against those nasty rock chips that occur in the leading surfaces of your new automobile,” says Mark Martino, owner and operator of Auto Shield Columbia.
Deteriorating roads and highways across the state are causing major rock chip damage to the paint of new cars. A rock chip is unsightly and diminishes the value of that new car. Auto owners are challenged with bug splatter, sandblast effect, bird bombs, water spots, and other paint damaging effects. Auto Shield Columbia has the solution. A urethane based clear film, Paint Protection Film, is the only invisible protection for your new car paint. Paint Protection Film is optically clear to enhance the natural beauty of the paint and provides protection from even the worst South Carolina roads.
Auto Shield Columbia has a database of more than 300,000 patterns. Their computer generated and plotted patterns ensure a perfect fit for any make or model vehicle. “Our Paint Protection Film protects and heals itself from fine scratches and swirl marks,” says Mark. “It’s hydrophobic too, which means it repels water accumulation on the surface.” Today’s Paint Protection Film is “Top Coat” and will never turn yellow or haze. And it’s backed by a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty!
