Calgary start-up defies local auto dealerships, bringing 3M Paint Protection directly to the customer

CALGARY, June 7, 2016 /CNW/ - 3M Paint Protection Film, as it is known officially, or commonly referred to as Rock Guard, Clear Bra, or simply just 3M, is Calgary's hottest selling vehicle aftermarket product. This protective urethane tape is stretched and applied to the front ends of new vehicles to protect against road wear and rock chips, a nightmare that Alberta drivers know all too well. Big brands such as 3M, Xpel and Suntek, boast ultra clarity and the ability to self heal. 3M Paint Protection Film, or PPF for short, is pushing sales into the tens of millions of dollars annually for dealerships around the city.

According to Caleb Cummings, General Manager of local start-up Calgary PPF, Calgary consumers are looking for an affordable and convenient option to protect their vehicles. "People don't want to take hours out of their week to have this product installed. They don't want to drive to some shop somewhere and sit for hours. We solve that problem by coming to them. We install while they work, anywhere around Calgary, on their timeline."

Calgary PPF is a new company in Calgary with a plan to change everything. Providing the product to the customer at a price reflecting its actual value, often half of what some dealerships charge. Calgary PPF's Mobile certified installers apply the material of the customer's choice to their new vehicle right in their garage or parkade spots downtown, alleviating the need to take hours out of their day to drive to a shop and wait. Caleb Cummings and long time business partner Abner Galdamez have succeeded in putting together the largest crew of 3M PPF installers in the city, and they are entirely mobile. Calgary PPF boasts same day appointments, and a 10-year warranty on all installs.

"Customers should not be forced to swallow ridiculous prices for a product they want, just because there is no better option. Calgary PPF is now the better option".
-Caleb Cummings. General Manager of Calgary PPF
