Hi there and thanks for tuning into PMS! Here’s the short version of what I’m thinking about this week: spring maintenance for your vehicle. Let me elaborate.
I was traveling in May (I know, lucky me) and noticed that most of the vehicles had a lot of damage on them while walking around. I couldn’t believe it. I’m talking paint peeling, dents all over, bumpers held on with rope, the works. I kept thinking, how are these vehicles not rusting out? This would never fly back home. But that’s just it, our winters and early spring (even late fall) are brutal for harsh condensation, salt, and cold. Where I was traveling doesn’t have to deal with that.
Spring maintenance is more than just a wash and wax. It’s checking out your vehicle for those little (or large) scratches, dents, even rust bubbles after winter. Spring and summer are the best time to get your car repaired because (touch wood) it’s usually drier and you can actually enjoy your new finish before it gets covered in salt and slush.
Canada is a beautiful place to live and we get to see all four seasons. This means that our vehicles suffer more wear and tear than other areas of the world. Staying on top of your spring maintenance checks will save you more in the long run as you’ll avoid greater damage (and bills!) caused by rust.
So…go and and give your vehicle a once over before you set out on road trips, picnics, and fun times for the summer. Bring it into any Colorworks location for a free no hassle estimate.
Thanks for tuning in and catch you next week!
