Frequently Asked Questions
Where did it all start?
A little over 25 years ago, Auckland, New Zealand, set the stage in starting the vision and goal of helping individuals take control of their own destiny and to have choices leading to a more prosperous life. We are pleased to say that through Final Touch we have been able to offer individuals an exciting opportunity to design a lifestyle and to have job satisfaction. And we haven’t stopped there- we are continually looking for ways to add value for our licensees and their customers.
We are continuing to grow the presence and value of the brand and our goal is to continue to grow our New Zealand and Australian regions.

What competition is there?
There are competitors in the SMART Paint Repair sector. However, only Final Touch offers the SmartChip® ‘spray and wipe’ paint repair solution.
Moreover, the remarkable thing about the Smart Chip Paint Repair Technology system is the technology that allows such effective results with a relatively simple process.
Our SmartChip® spray and wipe system achieves remarkable results even on quite heavily chipped paintwork. The ability to effectively spray and wipe stone chip and damaged paint repairs with the exclusive and patented Formula F184 sets us apart and enables us to repair any vehicle colour, including metallic and pearlescent, whilst at the same time acting as a polish to enhance the gloss and finish of the existing paintwork.
This is our unique selling point and when we combine this with our complete system we add value to our customers like no one else can. Our high quality repair process by licensed operators using specialist equipment gives them the opportunity to generate high- profit revenue for themselves.
After a Final Touch service the car can look as good as new; at a fraction of the time and cost of a re-spray. Our services are also seen as complementary to paint and panel repairers.

Thank you SO much!
Used Final Touch for the first time last week. I wish I knew about these guys years ago. My car’s finish now looks pretty close to new – and it’s 20 years old. I am thrilled. Not only is the outcome looking fantastic, the customer service was spot on. Liam made everything easy.
Couldn’t be happier with Darryl and the team!
Stopped in to get the stone chip touch up for my Suzuki Swift, well worth the price. Only regret was not getting it done sooner!
