MEET OUR FOUNDER

HI, I'M NIC SHANGLE

Polished Protection Signal Hill Ca Ceramic Pro Coating Paint Protection Film Paint Correction Auto Detailing Shop_33

I started working on cars before I had a license to drive them. I grew up working for what I wanted, which meant building my first car from an almost empty shell. After a year of working on it every day, I had a very cool 1966 VW Bug!

I guess you could say I was officially bit by the car bug…

I opened my first official mobile detail business in 1999. Over the next 16 years I learned different techniques and lessons in working with vehicle paint work. I perfected different sanding, polishing and paint correcting techniques that made me stand out from other detailers. I developed proprietary systems to make the process more efficient. I worked very hard to develop a training program that could replicate my techniques on a larger scale. I expanded my mobile business to multiple trucks and employees. Our quality was unmatched and my company was featured in a local newspaper, many automotive magazines, and television shows. While I enjoyed the mobile business, I wanted to increase the quality we could achieve. I wanted to spend as much time as we needed on our clients vehicles without being limited by weather, lighting, or temperature.

So, I opened Polished Protection in a 1200 sqft shop in Redondo Beach in 2015. We started offering a higher quality paint correction, ceramic coating, PPF and window tinting service to our clients. We outgrew our shop in less than 6 months! We then expanded into a new 8500 sqft shop in Signal Hill, California. Word quickly spread about our quality and customer service and we grew our following and clientele drastically since then. Our shop has now been featured in many Ceramic Pro videos, Donut Media videos, and Hoonigan videos. We also have worked on the vehicles of many celebrities and influencers.

While anyone can open a detail shop and learn to detail a car, we pride ourselves on being the standard most aspire to replicate. We are constantly evolving our skills in all different departments of our company. We are highly trained by the brands we represent in our shops (Ceramic Pro and Xpel) and continue to exceed customer expectations daily. We will never stop learning and improving. It is what makes us Polished Protection. We will continue to lead this industry in knowledge, skill and customer service.
