How long have you been operating?
United Car Care was started in 2014 and has been going strong ever since!
What made you decided to source world leading car detailing products?
After starting our own detailing business (OCD); we found ourselves constantly sourcing products from overseas due to the lack of quality gear available in New Zealand. After demand from our customers we launched United Car Care to pass on those great products to the whole country (and of course our expertise in the industry allows us to pass on advice and support too!)
Who are United Car Care
We are a small team of car enthusiast Kiwis based in Auckland. We're truly car obsessed and obsessed with detailing and ensuring a perfect finish every time! I guess you could call us a little bit OCD ;)
How well do you know the products?
Everything we sell has been extensively and continually tested and used by us. We use all of our products in OCD - our detailing business and we will only sell what passes our strict quality checks. A few brands we used to stock have come and go - as we found better products that meant we no longer had the need to sell the other brands. We're not afraid to replace products with even better products.
Are you going to open a store outside of Auckland?
While not in the immediate plans, we do have many customers asking us this exact question. For now - you can contact one of our numerous resellers to get access to our products all around the country!
Do you sponsor events?
We've sponsored numerous NZ events before both with financial and product sponsorship. Not only that but we also sponsor race cars too!
What events can we see you at?
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming event information.
