If you can see metal peeking through the paint, then it’s too deep. In such cases, we recommend you visit a local body shop or your dealership for a touch-up or paint job.
Frequently Asked Questions
CAN YOU REMOVE SWIRL MARKS?
Yes. Repeated use of car washes can produce what some in the industry call “swirl marks.” In such cases, we can repair the swirl marks and restore your paint finish to a brilliant lustre.
DO YOU REMOVE DENTS?
NO. Our work is all done within the clear coat layer that covers and protects your vehicle’s paint. We specialize in restoring the exterior surface, not repairing body work. Again, we recommend your friendly neighbourhood body shop or dealership.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Wherever you are! Meaning, we come to you because we’re totally mobile. We arrive at your doorstep with everything we need to complete the work onsite.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO THE WORK?
Two things: space and power. We need enough room for two parked vehicles and access to an electrical outlet. Oops, make that three things: the vehicle must be clean, dry and ready for buffing.
DO YOU WORK ON FLEETS?
Yes we do! Call us to discuss the size of your fleet, the exact nature of the work, and pricing options.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
Whoa! We’ve been at this for over 12 years, and we can hardly believe it ourselves.
WHAT NEIGHBOURHOODS DO YOU SERVICE?
We service Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Brampton, Woodbridge, Etobicoke, Bloor West, Midtown, Downtown, North York, Maple, Vaughan, Scarborough, Markham, Unionville, Whitby, Ajax and Pickering. Although we are based in Toronto and service the GTA on a daily basis, we have customers from Paris in the west to Clarington in the east and Barrie up north. We have no customers south of Toronto — cars don’t float!
I LIVE IN A CONDO. CAN YOU WORK ON MY CAR?
Yes, provided that there is a power outlet, room for at least two vehicles and, most importantly, permission from the condo management.
DO YOU BUFF MOTORCYCLES?
Yes. We can buff your motorcycle’s painted surface such as gas tanks, fenders and saddle bags.
DO YOU POLISH BOATS?
Yes. We have done a number of boats successfully in the past, and with proper scheduling maybe we can polish yours, too!
HAVE YOU POLISHED ANY SHOW CARS?
Yes. We are proud to say we have sent two cars to the legendary SEMA show in Las Vegas, as well as countless customs and even a few one-off prototypes for major Japanese car manufacturers. With proper notice, we can set aside time for more intricate show cars.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, The Car Buff is insured. Because of the number of vehicles that we handle on a yearly basis, we carry insurance for any eventuality.
