|Q.||Why should I choose an ECB alloy bullbar instead of a competitor’s alloy or steel bullbar for my vehicle? What are the benefits of alloy over steel?|
|A||Alloy has numerous benefits over steel. The most obvious is the weight difference – steel bullbars are very heavy and quite often require a suspension upgrade to be able to cope with the extra weight at the front of the vehicle whereas ECB’s alloy bullbars are very light and would not require any upgrade. The extra weight in steel means that manufacturers have to make their bullbars very thin to try and keep the weight down as much as they can whereas ECB’s alloy bullbars are made of a 6mm thick Hi Tensile precision plasma cut alloy which is double the thickness of most bullbars (both steel and alloy) out on the market. Another huge benefit is that ECB’s alloy bullbars are made from structural grade Hi Tensile alloy which never rusts and as such it consistently maintains optimal frontal protection for your vehicle, whereas a steel bullbar will start to rust as soon as any powder coating comes off such as when the vehicle bumps into anything.|
|Q.||Will an ECB bullbar void my new vehicle’s factory warranty?|
|A||Definitely not! All of ECB’s frontal protection products are new vehicle warranty compatible. They are also ADR approved and are fully Airbag Compliant so they definitely will NOT void your new vehicle warranty. ECB also provide a LIFETIME WARRANTY on all of their products.|
|Q.||Can I get the bullbar colour coded to match my vehicle?|
|A||Unfortunately ECB do not offer a ‘colour coding’ option as colour coding requires painting and ECB can not guarantee the quality of the finish. When choosing one of ECB’s excellent maintenance free powder coated finishes or the stunning mirror polished finish, ECB know that they are of the highest quality and can guarantee the finished product.|
|Q.||What maintenance is required for the different finishes to keep them looking like new?|
|A||With the 3 different powder coated finishes (Silver Hammertone, Silver Ripple & Black Ripple) there is NO maintenance required. Whilst offering superb eye catching appearance, the attractive and durable, textured powder coat finishes are everlasting and require virtually no maintenance. Perfectly suited to today’s modern vehicles and busy lifestyles, this maintenance free finish, looks great as the range available integrates with many vehicle colour and finish schemes, whilst allowing you to enjoy your vehicle looking great all the time, rather than spending your valuable time maintaining the traditional shiny, finish.If the appeal of Mirror Polished alloy is more your style, then you may choose this option on a number of ECB product lines. ECB’s reputation as the best quality polished finish in the industry has not been earned lightly. ECB demands the highest standard of workmanship, which is reflected in the quality of the finish on ECB polished products. The polishing process is a very manual one, requiring extensive skill and intense labour. If you decide that a Mirror Polished product is what you want, then that is exactly what you’ll get from ECB Not some thing that just looks shiny but the true “Mirror Polished.”
The maintenance of the Mirror Polished products has just recently been made a whole lot easier with the introduction of ECB’s Aluminium Polish. This specifically designed product is the best polish available and ECB guarantee that it works very well. With over our 40 years of manufacturing polished aluminium products ECB have trialled a large range of different polishes on the market and believe without a doubt that nothing beats the finish quality of their Aluminium Polish. ECB’s Aluminium Polish is excellent for use by hand and is ideal for polished bullbars, nudge bars and stainless steel products. This polish will clean, polish and protect your product from the elements whilst bringing your products back to that showroom finish look.
|Q.||What will the freight cost be to ship the bullbar from ECB in Queensland to Auto Extra in Osborne Park and then to my designated delivery address?|
|A||Auto Extra DO NOT CHARGE ANY FREIGHT to ship the bullbar from ECB in Clontarf, Queensland to their warehouse in Osborne Park, Western Australia. If you require the bullbar to be shipped to you instead of having it fitted by Auto Extra, they will have the bullbar delivered FREE OF CHARGE to anywhere in Australia.|
|Q.||If I buy a bullbar online, how secure is the payment procedure?|
|A||Auto Extra is committed to data security and as such they use a variety of technologies and procedures to help protect personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When Bullbars Perth transmits sensitive information (such as bank account details), they are protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. When a payment is made online, your bank account details and the money goes straight through to ANZ bank who then transfer it into Auto Extra’s bank account, so the payment and details are not seen or processed by Auto Extra or any third party at all.|
|Q.||Once I place an order for a bullbar, how long do I need to wait to have it fitted/delivered?|
|A||The general lead time for an ECB product to be made & dispatched is 1 – 2 weeks. There are some products that take 4 weeks to be made & dispatched and there are also products that are special ‘one off builds’ which can take up to 6 weeks to be made & dispatched.|
