"I found the website helpful. I liked that they offered multiple products and lines. I also liked the online advice and the way site linked together. I had questions about what products would be best for my black car, paint condition, etc. so I called and talked to someone. My call was handled quickly and I think I received some excellent recommendations, products I was not considering which surprised me. The customer service person explained why they recommend the products they did versus the ones I was considering. I purchased most of the suggested items. Payment transaction was easy. I received an e-mail to track my shipment which was helpful. My order arrived quickly and in excellent condition." - B. Childs, Jamestown, NC
