At Kelowna Electroplating we offer two grades of chrome plated finish quality so that you can choose a finish that meets your needs and budget.
Factory Quality or Regular Chrome:
Typically this grade of plating is used on accident repairs, insurance claims and smaller parts where minor imperfections are less noticable. Our goal with Factory Quality is to have your parts looking the same as they did when new from the factory.
High Quality or Copper Buffed Chrome:
This is by far our most popular grade of plating for bumpers and restoration parts. Extra care and attention is added in all phases of production and your parts are plated with copper and buffed to a mirror finish prior to the final nickel and chrome plating process. The result is a deeper, richer finish that will have a high degree of reflectivity.
Pricing & Order Information:
Upon receipt of your parts we will itemize and photograph all parts and contact you to give you a final cost for repair and replating. No work will begin until we have your approval to proceed. At this time we require a 50% deposit of your total order cost.
All parts must be completely disassembled prior to us being able to quote on repair and plating costs. Parts also must be free of grease and oil.
Please do not grind or sandblast your parts prior to sending to us. Generally this results in extra repair work which in turn is extra cost for you.
We cannot guarantee completion dates. You will be given an estimated time when we expect to have your parts finished but we cannot guarantee a date your parts will be finished. Our number one goal is to produce quality work - not meet a deadline. Restoration work on pot metal and show quality finishes take a great deal of time and attention to complete. Please try to plan ahead.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Debit, and cash. Sorry, no cheques.
We require a 50% deposit on all orders.
