Fix up that lease!

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!

Is your vehicle winter ready?

WinterReady2It’s here.  Whether you are ready or not, winter is upon us.  It might be disguised as a mild beast if you live in Southern Ontario but it’s here nonetheless.  Welcome to another edition of Pass Me the Star (Screwdriver) or PMS.

An important detail to remember before the weather really takes a turn is to ensure your car is winter ready, too.  For many of us this means changing our tires over to winter ones and perhaps getting an oil change to a more hearty oil to maximize performance in colder temperatures.  To ensure your vehicle is properly protected you should also consider getting those knicks and scratches dealt with.  Why can’t they wait until the spring?  Well, they probably can.  But.  Yes, there’s always a but.  Any surface damage that has broken through the paint coat will be more prone to oxidation, especially in colder, wetter temperatures, and therefore rust.  Rust can turn what appears to be a quick and simple repair right now into a nightmare if it spreads to a larger area.  Instead of buffing and repainting the damage, you’ll be looking at a much larger repair.

My two cents?  If you have multiple or a few large areas that need to be repainted, don’t wait until the spring.  Colorworks are experts with this sort of repair.  They get it.  Let them set you and your vehicle up for success this winter by taking care of your repairs now, not when they evolve into a bigger problem (and bill) for you down the road.  Find a location near you today and be proactive this winter.  http://colorworks.ca/find-a-location.html

Thanks for tuning in this week to PMS.  Stay safe on those roads and we’ll catch you in a week or two!
