South East Queensland's Premium Dealership Alternative For Paint Protection Packages. 3 Locations & Mobile Servicing all areas from Brisbane Gold Coast.

Ceramic Pro Paint Protection is a clear liquid nano ceramic quartz coating. It will transform itself onto the surface to become a rigid superstructure of nano glass, protecting the substrate it is applied to. Once applied to a painted surface its characteristics are super hydrophobic, extreme gloss and hardness above 9H protecting your vehicles paintwork from bird poo etching, micro scratching and deterioration such as fading and clear coat failure. Preferred Car Care are exclusive Ceramic Pro certified installers catering to all areas between Brisbane and Gold Coast.


It is our intention to provide new and used car owners a professional, transparent and cost effective vehicle protection solution with the convenience of locations and a mobile service. We use the best products the industry has to offer instead of you having to put up with car dealerships praying on your emotions while buying a new or used car.

We are absolutely committed to quality which is and can only be obtained through industry experience. Company founder and Director Justin Harris is without a doubt the most renowned high end detailer in the state with over 15 years detailing and coating experience. This experience is passed down to handpicked staff who themselves take ultimate pride in achieving results. Ultimately we will greatly improve your factory paint.

The end result comes down to the applicator and preparation, not just the product used. Preparation is key, in most cases even with a new car prep polishing is required to remove wipe / manual abrasion scratches from dealership cleaning techniques. There are also many inferior coatings and sealants on the market mainly dealership offerings which are sourced, packaged and distributed by national dealership marketing networks applied by untrained novices.


To provide a world class vehicle protection option for every make / model of car & all budgets creating unmatched VALUE & PRODUCT LONGEVITY. We are extremely passionate in making sure you have a pleasurable experience with Preferred and Ceramic Pro.

    Why should you have to pay extra for a lifetime warranty !. We believe a lifetime warranty should be FREE and this is why we offer a no questions asked re application policy if the product fails to do what is supposed to even 10 or 15 years after application.

    Other companies/products require yearly maintenance and tops ups. This says that there coatings are not permanent like Ceramic Pro.

    Did You Know that paint protection is covered on your car insurance in the event that re-coating is required after body repairs?

    Insurers that we have successfully worked with:


    Leather, Plastics and Vinyl.

    Your new car interior looks fantastic, lets keep it that way. Just like our skin, the bare interior of your car needs nourishing to protect from harmful UV and contaminants from everyday use. Our protective coatings are developed for modern automotive materials and provide a hydrophobic surface to protect from spills, stains and UV damage. Interior protection is designed to withstand friction wear for up to 24 months per application. Provides a non-glossy better than factory finish that is soft to the touch.

    Textile fabrics, suede and carpet

    Finally a versatile coating for all textiles to prevent spills becoming permanent stains. Non toxic, non-allergenic ingredients providing permanent stain and sun fade protection. No need to worry about spills, just a simple wipe up is all that’s required. The best way to describe the desired affect of our textile protection is to imitate the natural protection of sheep’s wool.

    1. Why should you choose a professional detailer as opposed to the car dealership for your Vehicle protection package?

    Apart from what has been mentioned above the car dealership detailers lack the professional experience necessary to repair problems such as surface scratching and swirls marks from incorrect delivery methods from the factory. Our Paint protection Specialist and Company Owner Justin Harris has 13 years of experience with factory 2K finishes to ensure your receive nothing but the best workmanship at affordable prices.

    2 - How Long Does It Take For the application process of Ceramic Pro 9H ?

    Application time depends on the amount of work involved and the size of the vehicle, generally for a new vehicle our prices include Product application, washing and Decontamination (de waxing) and a single stage perfecting polish prior to Application of coating. This roughly takes around 2-3 hours. If the vehicle is more than 12 months old or requires additional work such as machine cut and polishing or removal of heavy contaminants the amount of time required can vary and will be advised on inspection.

    3 - Who can apply Ceramic Pro 9H to my Vehicle ?

    Ceramic Pro is designed for application by approved professionals only and is not available to the general public, only a select number of applicators Australia wide that have undergone training and met requirements are approved to apply the Ceramic Pro range.

    4 - Can my car be driven directly after application ?

    Once Ceramic Pro has been applied the vehicle can be driven straight away as the surface will be "touch dry", however the vehicle must stay dry for a minimum of 6 hours whilst the coating cure's to the paint work. The coating will continue to harden as the resin dehydrates over the coming days.

    5 - What are the benifits of Ceramic Pro 9H ?

    Ceramic Pro 9H (Paint Protection) is based on a proven industrial coating but formulated to suit modern automotive paint finishes, making it highly durable at protecting your paint work. Ceramic Pro 9H forms a "Permanent Adhesion" to the vehicles paint work protecting it from Bird Droppings, Bug Impacts, Tar, Tree Sap and other damaging contaminants. The coating features a Super Hydrophobic and Anti-Graffiti effect so that any liquid that comes in contact with the surface simply beads up and rolls off along with any dirt and grime, keeping the vehicle cleaner for longer. Compared to other paint protection systems Ceramic Pro is a hard protective coating that is thicker then waxes, paint sealants and all other paint protections on the market, it provides more resistance to marring and swirl marks then factory paint work. With its advanced chemical resistance it will also not wash off or break down from heavy chemical cleaners over time, therefore there are no requirements to use specific products to maintain the coating.

    6 - The Facts

    Ceramic Pro 9H has been tested and certified by "SGS" under International Standards for Hardness, Adhesion, Alkali Resistance, Acid Resistance, Salt Resistance and Non-Toxicity. Ceramic Pro 9H regularly undergoes testing by independent testing laboratories to ensure consistency and improvements.
