This season always reminds me of my arrival in Canada during a cold winter nine years ago. I was new to the country and everything was covered in snow, this made it even more special, more… unique. It was like I was a kid again, amazed by the novelty of a new place. I remember my first snowball fights and snowmen, rolling a snowball and being completely amazed that it actually grew larger, jut like I had seen in cartoons when I was a kid.
With this new place also came new driving rules and techniques; winter driving was not something I was used to before.
I remember my first winter driving, the nervousness; the respect for snow and ice; and the weird sensation of snow hitting your windshield on a snowy day as if I was aboard the Millennium Falcon. I failed my first driving test when I skid into the middle of an intersection because it was snowing when I first took the test (I understand now that it was a good thing I failed because I obviously was not ready for it). Today I am much more comfortable and feel safe behind the wheel during winter, with some solid years of experience behind me, I always keep in mind my first lessons learned. My speed and driving are always according to the weather conditions, I always take my time and leave enough distance between my vehicle and the car in front, and I am always aware and cautious of snow and ice on the road.
Stay safe and thanks for tuning in!
Hi there and thanks for tuning in to PMS (Pass Me the Star [Screwdriver]). This week I’m excited to talk about Spring…specifically Spring Cleaning.
This is usually something that I grumble about doing – but do love the end result. It can take a lot of time and work to clean up an apartment, house or yard. What if I told you that it didn’t have to take as long to clean up the winter knicks and scratches on your car – or even better – that you didn’t have to do it?
Spring cleaning applies to your vehicle, too. Winter can be tough on our cars and spring is the perfect time to spruce them up to avoid more potential damage (like rust!) throughout the spring and summer. Colorworks Express Autobody Centers are the go-to local business for your spring time spruce up for your vehicle. Check out a location near you today and call or email for a free estimate. Not only will your home and yard be looking fresh and ready for the season, but so will your vehicle.
Catch you next time and thanks for tuning in!
Hi again and thanks for tuning in to PMS! (Pass Me the Star [Screwdriver]!). Spring is beginning to peep out (or has already sprung depending on where you are) and with the refreshing weather and transition also comes other points of turnover. For many, this might be switching over/out a leased vehicle.
I don’t know about you, but my car certainly has a few knicks on it (I really should get them fixed) – it’s not a lease though. If you are returning a lease in the near future you really should consider fixing up anything “new” on your vehicle before taking it back to the dealership. Why? The dealership may charge you large fees – more than what you’d pay at an autobody shop.
If you need dent repair; bumper repair; collision repair; and/or any sort of car body repairs Colorworks Express Autobody Centers is your best bet to avoid those service fees at your dealership. Consider getting a free estimate at one of their many locations sooner rather than later. If it can save you time, money and stress that seems like the surefire way to go in my opinion!
Thanks for tuning in this week and I’ll catch you next time!
Hi there! Welcome back to another edition of Pass Me the Star (Screwdriver) or PMS for short. This week I’ve been thinking about what makes me really happy during my day. With the days getting shorter the early darkness blues start setting in. To help combat this I think about one thing that happened during the day that left a positive impact.
For the most part, it’s usually the people I work with in the office and not the detailed task list. People can truly make your day. A well-placed smile or holding the door for someone can be their turning point from what started off as a crumby slog.
A few weeks ago this radio ad popped up that a Colorworks customer in Barrie provided after he received great service from Darcy and Liz. He definitely sounds pleased with his experience and mentions Darcy and Liz by name. They had a positive impact on what was a pretty rough day for this person.
If you are located in Ontario, Alberta or British Columbia and having one of those rough days because you’ve been in a minor collision or found a scratch or dent on your car, call Colorworks. Their shops and staff are ready to help you with your repair, walk you through an insurance call, and be supportive and friendly in what they know is a difficult and stressful time. Take the stress out of your life completely and call Colorworks.
Check out the radio ad attached to this note below. Thanks for tuning in and catch you next week!
