Is It Worth It To Get Your Young Driver’s Car Serviced?

With COVID-19, a lot of youngsters are out of school way earlier than expected. What we thought was going to be a normal school year certainly isn’t. Before we tell you five reasons to get your young driver’s car serviced, we first want to acknowledge some things: We appreciate all teachers and educational faculty. We often take for granted all of the hard work, time, and effort you make to teach. On a dime, you have had to pivot and educate outside of the normal classroom environment. Cheers and love to you for taking on this herculean challenge while facing a global pandemic. We appreciate all parents who are juggling all of the duties of work, home, and educating your kids. None of us could ever have pictured how hard it would be for parents to continue paying the bills, working (if you’re lucky enough to still be working), making sure your kids met with their teachers every day, clean and maintain the household, and put food on the table. Wow! We love you and f ... read more

How to Protect Yourself When Buying a Car "As Is"

Many of us feel confident knowing that we will be getting a pristine car by buying new and driving it off the lot in immaculate condition complete with a manufacturer's warranty that covers repairs for several years, however, the reality is that many of us purchase used cars that are sold "as is." Buying used is a bit riskier than buying new. However, there are several things you can do to be proactive and protect yourself from unexpected repairs before purchasing a used car that will minimize the chances of encountering more significant and unexpected repairs. "As is" is a legal term used to free the seller of any obligation or responsibility for the mechanical condition of a vehicle once the title changes hands that means "all issues known and unknown" become the buyer's responsibility once you have taken ownership.

Here's What Happens When You Organize Your Car

We spend an increasing amount of time in our cars as commutes take longer and our work gets farther away from our homes. Coupled with the number of errands we run, our time in the car steadily increases. Think about your vehicle as a part of your home, although it is a mobile unit, our family spends time there, and we would like everything to be at our fingertips when needed. Distractions are dangerous when out on the road with other drivers. Keeping the number of distractions at bay increases our safety. It is nice to know where everything is and know that it is secure. It feels good knowing where everything is, and it also can help keep you safe. Avoiding distractions will help keep you alert to your surroundings and your eyes on the road. Have you or your friends been in a car accident where something in the car flew, causing a severe impact? This hazard can easily be avoided by having secure storage locations for items in your vehicle. It is a simple thing you can do to keep you a ... read more

It has fluids coursing through its veins, so to speak. It can get worn out and start breaking down. It can also age and not run like it did when it was younger. Therefore, we recommend showing your love for your vehicle by taking i ... read more
