You know how much I love cars, checking out new trends and new vehicles for car reviews, but what you don’t know is how important my own car is to me! I have met a few people over the years who love their cars and will do what they can to keep in running in great condition, including checking out some cheap tyres online for their car model so they always have a spare in case they break down, as well as keeping a toolkit in their trunk. Very versatile people I’d say and it goes to show how much they care.
I came from a large city in Brazil, as large as Philadelphia, having a car to navigate my city was not an option, you needed a car if you wanted to get anywhere, because public transportation is not good at all!
When I moved here, I could not drive immediately, as I didn’t have my own car. I believe it was one of the hardest times for me, to be dependent on my boyfriend to go grocery shopping or simply run errands. That made me appreciate, when he gave me a brand new car and restored my freedom! It was a gift I never took for granted!
I have nurtured my love for cars and taking care of ours, ever since! We don’t skip oil changes or service time to ensure our vehicles are in top shape! You can head down to any local auto repair shop Chantilly VA, Texas, wherever you live really for these checks but make sure you do them regularly.
I learnt most of this advice from one of my friends who owns their own fleet for their company and have to constantly think about the maintenance of all of their fleet vehicles so they have a reduced chance of breaking down. However, rather than using my new skills (haha) he uses more professional businesses like Ferguson Truck Center to do vehicle inspections, oil changes, and everything else to ensure the reliability of his vehicles, plus they also do emergency breakdown repairs, which is perfect when you are running a fleet of vehicles! Fleet insurance becomes important in these scenarios. Thus, in cases such as this, using various insurance sites to compare motor trade insurance could prove useful.
Anyway, I also rely on vehicles to fulfill my blogging obligations! I know you see all the pictures of the events I attend across Social Media. Just this past week alone, I was in NYC, Philly and North Jersey to attend blogging events! Having a reliable car, is not a choice for us, it’s something we take very seriously, because our lives and income are at stake.
So I want to share some of the steps with you, that we follow, to ensure our vehicle is in top shape:
- We bring the vehicle for oil changes as soon as the sticker or maintenance light comes on, depending on the vehicle.
- We bring the vehicles for service and maintenance routine check ups when they are due
- We often repair minor things in the vehicle before they actually break down, it’s all about preventing it!
We trust our vehicles to Walmart as an auto center that takes care of one of our most precious assets; we recently took one of our vehicles to get the oil changed at our local store and the auto center, which not only performed a complete inspection, but used our favorite brand, Quaker State which my husband has been using for 3 years, to give the best performance to our vehicle!
They also placed us in a waiting room with TV and internet and cleaned our vehicle after finishing the oil change! I was so impressed how courteous and careful about every detail they were in the process, instead of most places, where you are just a number in line!
They came twice to give us an update on the service and how long it would take to finish and we only had to wait a few minutes for it! They also asked for feedback when we were called to pay for the service!
