Next Level Customer Service & Care

The team at Benchmark are amazing to work with. They did a protective clear vinyl on the sides of my Sprinter to protect it from scratches as well as also a wrap on the front and lower sides in black. It's been a year now and I'm extremely satisfied with how well it has all held up. The customer service and care they took with this project was next level. Would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get the best work possible done on their vehicle.

Phenomenal Ceramic Coating Install

They did a phenomenal job installing XPEL Stealth PPF and Ceramic Coating on my new Tesla. They also tinted my windows, customized my wheels, and added a few interior custom touches. Their communication and follow up was spot on.

Trust Our Professional Clear Paint Installation

Benchmark Auto Salon's professional clear paint installation team always works in a clean, sterile environment. Keeping the installation area clean ensures dust doesn't get stuck under the film during the application process.

Plus, the vehicle is meticulously cleaned before any film is applied to ensure the surface is pristine.

Full Clear Paint Protection Wrap for Maximum Protection

Each vehicle panel is fully wrapped, ensuring there are no edges exposed to rock chips or road grime. This also eliminates any unsightly lines along the panels.

It's one of many benefits you'll see when you choose Benchmark.

Get Gap-Free Window Tint

It makes a difference how your tint is applied.

Our XPEL window tint is always cut longer than the length of the window and then shaved down, so there is no gap along the edge. This creates a seamless appearance, whether your windows are open or closed.

At Benchmark, we make your car look good.
