As the last remnants of winter melt away, you might have noticed that the sun has been peeking through the clouds and brightening up your day, which can only mean one thing â€“ spring is finally on its way. With the changing of the seasons comes less harsh weather conditions, and car drivers across the UK utter a collective sigh of relief.
No more will your car be covered in the residue of road salt and water marks from the constant drizzle and threat of snow. Here at Cars Equal Cash, we have put together a few helpful tips for getting your car looking in tip-top shape as the days get longer and the sun reappears!
If you changed your tires over winter, good for you. However, now is the time to change back to all weather tires to ensure your winter set stay in good condition for next year. Different weather conditions require different things from your tires so it is always best to ensure you are using the most appropriate tire for the time of year.
Your car will have accumulated never-ending layers of dirt, mud and salt over the last few months but now is the time to get rid of allÂ the winter grime. Whether you choose to go to a car wash service or take on the challenge yourself, be sure to get in all the nooks and crannies and finish off with a wax to make your car look as good as new.
You might want to think about having the interior cleaned, too. Vacuum inside thoroughly including the seats and dust your dashboard. Wash and dry your floor mats to ensure they match your freshly cleaned car!
Have a Clear Out
Itâ€™s as easy to accumulate bits and bobs in your car as it is in your home, but every once in a while it is good to buck the trend and have a clear out. That pair of wellies you’ve been meaning to put in the garage have been sat in your boot for almost six months now, so seize the day. That bag of clothes you’ve been meaning to drop off at a charity shop is sat taking up room and weighing down your car, so add that job to your diary, give your boot a good clean and save yourself some money on fuel in the process.
Spring is a great time to get your car checked over. Bad weather wear and tear isn’t always as obvious as a crack in your windscreenÂ and you never can be sure what damage has been done until your car has a health check, so get yourself booked in.
Of course, if your car doesn’t look like it will make it to spring and youâ€™re looking to make a change this year, then why not consider scrapping it with Cars Equal CashÂ – we pay the best prices so you can be sure that your next carÂ will be yours in no time at all.
