Detailing news - raceglaze in australia

uk based car care and finishing specialist, race glaze has expanded its reach by launching its popular water filter range in australia supported by a new dedicated website and locally held stock availability for fast delivery.

The water filters are already best sellers in the uk, as they provide pure filtered water for rinsing cars during washing, which removes water spots and mineral residues normally left on paintwork, allowing the vehicle to dry naturally which saves time and effort.

Race glaze md, mark wibberley said: “the hot climate in australia means that cars ‘air-dry’ extremely quickly and this causes the rapid formation of water spot mineral deposits even while the car is still being washed. This makes our water filters an ideal labour saving solution and allows a better finish to be achieved. We’ve only had the website live for a couple of weeks and early sales have been encouraging alongside interest in some of the other products from our ‘best selling’ uk product lines.”

Please, please, please don't over-inflate the prices compared to the UK. Just about every detailing-related product here is around twice the UK price. Example - Dodo's website has Banana Armour at 27.50 whilst here it's over 48 quid. Why? We only pay 10% VAT equivalent so that's a huge markup. Even the South Korean stuff like Gyeon is around 40% more and that's just up the road in postage terms. It's not as if the Aussie dollar is that strong either!

We haven't inflated the prices, as we control the entire process - its our website, our products, we take payment and distribution there is under our direct control too. No-one is taking a cut or markup.

Prices are very similar to the UK price, we just added our costs to ship stock there for fast local distribution. Our courier costs within Australia are also super competitive - we're piggybacking off a major national corporation with no markup.

For example, Alcantara Cleaner is AUS$17.99, its £9.99 here: at £1=AUS$1.75 its identical.

We are doing our best to bring you great products at fair prices. I too have been in Supercheapauto and been amazed at the scandalous prices.
