Money-Saving Tips for the Motorist
Let’s face it, owning a car comes with a lot of expense; after the initial payment for the vehicle, you then have to tax and insure the car and with the cost of fuel always rising, it is easy to see why some people don’t drive their own car. Let’s not forget the maintenance and repairs that every vehicle owner must carry out, which adds up to a sizeable amount and with that in mind, here are a few tips to cut down on your motoring costs.
- Used tyres – There is currently a trend for wide wheels and when a car owner wishes to put wider wheels on their ride, they also have to acquire wider tyres. This means that many tyre shops have a wide selection of partly used tyres and you can save a lot of money if changing all 4 tyres.
- Used parts – If you need a new radiator or alternator, instead of paying for a new one, visit your local car breakers yard, where you will probably find exactly what you’re looking for. When a car is scrapped, due to old age or accident damage, all of the usable components are stripped, reconditioned and offered for sale to car owners.
- Compare service prices – If you are in need of car body repair in Chichester, ask several garages to quote for the repair. This is easy to do using Google and you can save quite a lot of money by shopping around.
As you can see, there are a few ways that you can reduce your motoring costs and we all want to save money.
