With the new year in full swing, you may already have found some ways to make your money go further, but have you thought about the money you could save on running your car and car maintenance in general?
Here are some tips from our team on how to get the most out of your vehicle whilst still keeping an eye on your budget.
1 Plan ahead when it comes to filling up the tank
Don't fill your tank at the last moment. You could be spending more than you need to on petrol. Plan ahead so that you can take advantage of the cheapest fuel in your area, or along any route you have planned. Fuel is relatively cheap right now and there are many mobile apps and websites that will give you the rundown of the cheapest places to buy petrol.
2 Compare the insurance markets
When it comes to buying car insurance, it really does pay to take your time, and as the advert says "compare the market". In doing so, you could save yourself hundreds of pounds compared to last year's quote.
3 The cheaper tyres could cost you more in the long run
If you need to change your tyres, it isn't always the best decision to choose the cheapest. Cheaper tyres could wear out quicker and could also prove dangerous if you chose part worn tyres that do not meet legal requirements.
4 It's often cheaper to arrange your minor damage repairs without involving your insurance company
If you have noticed minor damage such as scratches or minor dents on your vehicle, it is often cheaper to give Dentfix a call before involving your insurance company. Our repairs are often cheaper than your excess and we would be delighted to provide you with a cost effective quote.
5 Arrange regular servicing of your vehicle
Sometimes in life, you need to spend money to save money, and servicing your vehicle is one of the best ways you can do this. Regular servicing will help to keep your vehicle running economically and safely, and will also help to protect the value of your vehicle. A full service history is often the one thing that potential buyers will be looking for when considering your vehicle over another similar model.
