Car Tips


car-exteriorRemember that the exterior of the vehicle is the first thing that attracts any buyer. If it is clean, blemish and scratch free, untarnished and shiny, the buyer will be immediately attracted towards it. It is a good idea to repaint the rusted areas, have the loose parts fixed by a mechanic and any chips or cracks properly fixed.

Car ScratchedAlso if you notice any scratches on your vehicle, clearly root away any scratches by sanding the damaged paint on the body of the car, with utmost care then repaint. This job is best left to a professional body shop, so that the paint job is not noticeable. Ensure that the external parts such as viper blades, tire rims and mufflers are in good shape, so they do not look worn out, cracked or non-functional. If they are unrepairable, simple pay a bit extra and replace them, your investment should pay off when you sell your car.

worn tiresNote that the tires have the right tread and can be cleaned with special gels to bring back the glow in the rubber. It is not a bad idea to replace the tires, if they are worn out as no one would like to pay for a vehicle that is essentially not road ready. used tire shops are all around Canadian cities so getting some used tires in good condition should not be a problem and is an inexpensive investment.

car-interiorThe interior of the vehicle is equally tempting for the buyer, providing it is neat, clean and polished, seats are shampooed, the air vents and floor is properly vacuumed and dusted. Also it must be kept in mind that the vehicle does not carry any sort of odour, and the upholstery is clean. The buyer will be happy to pay the price for a vehicle that is presentable and also carries a modest cost and is mechanically in excellent condition. It must be borne in mind that the vehicle must also be mechanically in good condition that the engine is lubricated, the fluids are topped and the battery is fully functional.

Ontario Drive Clean Presenting the buyer with safety and emission papers is a bonus definitely worth investing in. Take your vehicle to an Ontario Drive Clean registered mechanic to fix your car up so it passes these tests. Once you have done all these things, you should be able to get more than you ask for, and your time and money spent will be well worth it.

cracked-windshield-killsThe windshield of a car is one of the most important safety devices for the passengers. So, just like a vehicle is equipped with airbags, that act as shock absorbers in the case of a collision and seat belts that help the inmates of a vehicle to be buckled in safely, similarly, windshields also play a vital role in the safety of the driver and passengers. It is to be noted that a damaged or cracked windshield must be repaired at the earliest to ensure that passengers are safe.

AutoGlass companies sometimes make unnoticeable mistakes when installation or repairing a windshield. It may even be as little as not wearing gloves that may cause grease and grime to slip into the bonding area of the windshield, or, improper cleaning practices that may include dust to enter into the bonding glass, which eventually allows for the weakening of the installed windshield. Moreover, failure to use appropriate and standard materials for installation purposes. One such example is the use of butyl tape instead of urethane. Butyl tape is an inferior adhesive, only holding to 60lbs per square inch. Whereas, urethane, is a stronger tape that may hold to 600lbs per square inch. Hence, allowing greater stability to the windshield. This is why it is important to choose an expert with extensive experience, offering lifetime warranties.
