I’m looking to get my truck ceramic coated to keep it looking good. A local company (central Canada) send me the following pricing. Is it fair? Good? Bad? What package should I do?

All Coatings come with warranty for full duration and also register on carfax of your vehicle.

$800 - 3 Year Paint Coating

$1200 - 5 Year Paint Coating

$1600 - 5 Year Self Healing Ceramic Coating

$2100 - 7 Year Self Healing Ultra Coating

$200 - Full Exterior Glass Ceramic Coated

$100 - Wheels Ceramic Coated
 

If I did the conversion correctly I would say those are really good prices. My local detailer is charging $1800 USD for a 5 year ceramic without wheels. He uses Carpro C.quartz

Gorgeous looking rig Mikey. Sorry I don't have any info on Ceramic Coat pricing, but I did want to ask about your wheels on your truck ? Are they a winter GM wheel ? This is the second Black AT4 I've seen with the same black wheels, and I'm in Ontario. Never seen those wheels on AT4's usually on the lot or out on the road.
Thanks,
Joe

They’re aftermarket wheels by a company called replika. I believe the model is the r246. They’re a knockoff copy of the Denali design, but much much cheaper than oem
 

Honestly...this is something you can do yourself for less than $200. So many reputable companies sell user friendly coatings these days (i.e. Adam's Advanced Graphene Ceramic) that there's almost no reason to pay that kind of money. If you can wax a car, you can apply a coating.

Do it yourself and use your savings to buy truck parts :)

Going off topic, would you be able to post a few more pictures of your splash guards? I'm thinking of getting those but can't decide if I actually like them or not.
Thanks

It’s not the ceramic coating that intimidates me as much as doing the paint correction, but I maybe over estimating the difficulty. Is it possible to do both without a garage?
 

Call me a cheap SOB but I did this for 10 bucks and am quite satisfied. Washes easier and shines better than new..Water beads and runs off, and this is a black truck! To renew just spray on, rinse and chamois after initial coating to keep the shine. Some great youtubes on how to apply..

I'm in the Vancouver area and mine was done for $2500 but that's with full paint correction included for a 7 year coating.

It is possible to do your own paint correction and coating if you have a bit of knowledge on how it all works and the right equipment, but if you don't have the equipment that is going to cost you a bit anyway. And on a black truck if you don't know the steps things can go wrong pretty easily... I have done detailing in the past and I still just took mine to a shop to get done (this way you get warrantee on any issues) and also every year you will want a "maintenance wash" that will decontaminate and rejuvenate the coating. Anyone that has not had ceramic coating done will not understand how different it is than the "spray on coatings", there is no comparison at all.

Any lighter colour truck I'd say maybe give it a shot but black does not hide anything at all and for the cost of buying the equipment and product to do it yourself you save a bit but chances are it won't come out looking like a professional detail shop did it. If it's a good shop you will be amazed what it will look like when you pick it up after it's done.
 

This is where I landed after comparing cost, maintenance and overall ease of use. It has lasted 4 months on the windows and the one half of bed that I "tested" on still beads water. Very easy to apply.
