If your car is exposed to humid weather conditions or stone chips, this requires a high-quality undersealing. When the car is new, it is vital to be foresighted with undersealing. The undercarriage is extremely exposed, and if the surface is damaged rust is imminent. Stone chips, snow, sleet, and the humid British weather are all factors that can damage the undercarriage coating.

Brilliant! Set up a free account, posted the job, got the quotes. Accepted a quote, job done, car well again. Garage was a distance away, but given the quotation price, not an issue. Saving me over £550 on a dealer repair. Autobutler... where have you been all my life. Will certainly use again

Used autobutler and found a garage round the corner from my house that had lots of 5* reviews and quoted £600. Saved me loads of money and put me in touch with a fantastic garage so close to my house. Staff at autobutler were also really helpful when accepting quotes.

Do what they say they will do - customer service par excellence. Why did no-one do this before. Trusted garages, quick service, reliable quotes - might even drive the 'Arthur Daley's' out-of-business.
Undersealing is to prevent both corrosion and to close already existing holes in the undercarriage coating. Undersealing must be carried out in an efficient and correct way and must include not only the undercarriage, but also the wheel housing, panels and other exposed areas.
When an undersealing is applied, you also benefit in another way. The inner wings cause wheel noise, but when you use a rust protection product you also obtain a noise reduction.
Often you come across the term rust protection, which is exactly the same. An undersealing IS to prevent corrosion on the exposed parts of the car. A rust protection just means that you are trying to prevent rust whereas an undersealing gives you additional benefits. Therefore, the term undersealing seems more appropriate since it is not only a question of removing or preventing rust, but also very much a question of making sure that there are no damages on the various parts being treated.
When your car receives undersealing treatment, you also receive a treatment warranty. As a general rule, such warranty is subject to certain conditions. It might, e.g., be a condition that the treatment – as mentioned earlier – is to be repeated after a certain number of years.
The warranty is NOT valid if you run into a kerb, is exposed to stone chips or in some other way damages the undersealing. Therefore, it is important that you inspect your car regularly, e.g., by booking a service check with your mechanic, such check preferably to take place before wet and salty roads cause undercarriage damages.
Most car brands have a factory warranty (applying to corrosion of undercarriage and side members) of 5, 7 or 10 years. However, it is a prerequisite that the rusting stems from the inside of the car. If you have not protected your car well enough or done nothing to protect the car when it had visible damages, then the warranty is not valid.
By giving your car an undersealing treatment, you make sure that your corrosion warranty is valid. Also, you protect your budget against unnecessary garage bills resulting from subsequent sheet metal work, or from some other work to be done on the car as a result of rusting.
