Best Online Platforms for Buying a Car

In these days of pandemics and pressure, our ability and will to go out shopping for anything has been worn away. Platforms like Amazon made online retail a mainstream option years ago, but the same couldn’t be said for cars. It was always supposed that car shopping was immune from the online world, because people would never accept not being able to walk up to a car, smell it, sit in it and test it.

The modern age has proven those sceptics wrong, and the UK is now home to multiple online platforms that make car buying easier, safer and more convenient for the consumer. Today we’ll be sharing 5 of the best ones out there:

  1. Auto Trader

Pros: New and used cars all in one place; huge selection; strong reputation

Cons: Dealers can pay to rank their listings higher on the page

This is something of a blue-chip name in the world of car sales in the UK. As you might expect, its long-established history and prestige afford it a treasure trove of listings of both new and used cars sourced from reputable independent dealers. These categories are clearly separated so there’s little to no chance of confusing a new and used listing.

One drawback with Auto Trader is that dealers can pay to raise their ranking, so your results are not necessarily the most relevant. You have to fight your way through the “sponsored” content.

  1. Motors

Pros: Pleasing graphics makes features and criteria clearer; very useful smart search feature

Cons: Reviews don’t seem as reliable as other platforms; used cars only

The first thing that grabs you on Motors is the eye-catching use of colour and graphics. It makes the various criteria and features far easier on the eyes. The whole experience is extremely user-friendly, and you can quickly find great used cars to suit your needs using the smart search function.

Users should, on the other hand, be wary of new-car images being used in place of current ones. It seems to happen, and makes some of the listings’ reliability factor (especially reviews) suffer somewhat.

  1. CarGurus

Pros: No hidden factors in the pricing – very clear; email alerts optional for price changes

Cons: Not a huge selection

CarGurus is a smaller player in the UK, though much larger in North America. It still offers great features to UK users. One of the things we like most is the transparency on pricing, advising users if the site feels the asking price doesn’t line up with market value. You can also set it up to receive email updates should the price of a car you like drops.

It’s an up-and-coming platform with around 243,000 used cars available. That’s still only about half that of large competitor Auto Trader.

  1. FindAndFundMyCar

Pros: Purchasing and financing all in one location; user-friendly platform

Cons: Not a huge selection

Findandfundmycar.com is a new arrival, and seems to be trying to shake things up by bringing more to the customer experience than just searching for cars. This platform brings together car listings (around 170,000 currently) and car finance in one place, so you can both “find” and “fund” your car all in one go. They even throw in shopping discounts at high-street giants like John Lewis and Halfords with their deals.

It’s small at the moment, and its selection certainly can’t rival the “big boys” like Auto Trader and Motors, but with their commitment to an improved value-added experience for buyers, we think they are going places.

  1. Carwow

Pros: Prices clear and fixed at best rate; great source for new cars

Cons: Stock images only on listings; lots of spam

When you’re looking for a new car, Carwow offers an innovative platform for users. Instead of listing specific cars and models for sale, you select a make and model you want, and then it’s left to dealerships offering that car to deliver the best deal to you. This ensures that you have the best-possible price quickly, and removes any need for negotiating.

Two small drawbacks of this system are that you can’t actually see the car you’re hoping for when you make an inquiry, because options will be sourced from multiple dealerships. You’ll only see stock photo examples. Furthermore, you leave yourself open to quite a lot of spam after using the service, but at least you can easily unsubscribe if that’s going to be a problem.

Try Different Platforms Based on Your Needs

Reflect on your specific need and one of these platforms is sure to make a good match. Keep your common sense and wits about you as you browse, and be mindful of images and authenticity at all times.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Windshield

So you are driving and you hear a loud noise, like something hit the glass on your car. You pullover and survey the car and you find a crack in your windshield. Before you start searching for a local windshield replacement company, here are something you should know.

Is Repairing My Windshield An Option?

It’s important to know that an auto glass company can only repair your windshield if the crack or chip is a certain size, which you will need to measure. The crack will typically need to be one inch in diameter or less and can’t be longer than three inches.

If you fit the size and are looking to pay the minimum amount instead of replacing the entire windshield, it’s important to act quickly. You want to move on getting the repair completed since the crack is unstable and can get bigger from the vibration of the car or even hitting a hole in the road.

You also want to get the glass repaired as soon as you can to avoid any water getting into the crack. If water penetrates the crack it can make it to the lamination surface and start to delaminate from the glass. It will then eventually start to fog and create an even bigger problem for your view as your driving. If you live in a colder climate, the water can freeze and expand the crack even larger. Also keep in mind that water can bring dirt into the crack, which will be impossible to flush out.

A quick tip to help you avoid any of these issues is to apply a clean strip of clear packaging tape until you are ready for the repair. This will help prevent any water or dirt from getting into the crack. You will still be at risk of the crack getting bigger when driving so be mindful of obstructions in the road and go at a slower speed.

When you are set to repair your windshield, the auto glass company will start out by preparing the crack. They will use a cleaning solution or pads of alcohol to help get rid of any dirt of loose pieces of glass in the crack.  They will then need to make a good seal around the chip to secure the glass in place.  The next step is to apply the resin. This is a clear and sticky substance that is made to bond to the glass. It will come out as a liquid form when applied and then harden into the glass to secure all the pieces back together. It’s important to make sure that there is enough resin in the crack that it fills the center back to the same even level of the rest of the windshield. The auto glass company will finish off by removing the excess and then its just time to let it cure.

Going the repair direction versus a windshield replacement can save you money however you need to be aware that there is still a lot of risk of the crack worsening over time. You also need to keep in mind that there will be visible mark that will be permanent on the glass.

Should I Replace My Windshield?

If your crack is longer than three inches or larger than one inch in diameter you will most likely have to replace your windshield. If you don’t have anyone, you can search for auto glass companies near me. Be sure to have your car’s information handy such as year, make, model, and the vin number. The more information you can give them the more accurate the quote will be. Make sure to call a couple of different companies to make sure you are getting the best price.

The first step that will happen during the windshield replacement process is to remove the weather stripping located on the exterior side of the windshield. The next step is for them to loosen the existing adhesive to the glass, which is keeping it in place. They will then remove the existing glass. Make sure to remind the auto glass company to transfer over any important stickers you have on the windshield. They should easily be able to use a glass scraper to keep the sticker intact and transfer to the new windshield.

Now that the opening of the windshield is open, they will need to clean and prepare the window for the new piece of glass. The next step is to add urethane glue, which will create a secure bond to the glass and the vehicle.  The windshield will then need time to cure and harden so that it creates a good bond.  Giving it the time it needs one to two days, will fully insure that the glue has hardened sufficiently.

Differences between Short-Term and Long-Term Car Lease Deals

Lots of people always lease their vehicles in the US because it’s an option that is considered very fluid and affordable by the majority of individuals. It gives customers easy access to the latest model of their favorite brand of car, and dealerships, more often than not, offer various specials that attract more people to opt-in for a car lease deal they can trust.

Another advantage that comes with leasing a vehicle is the flexibility in the length of the deal. Customers can go for either a short term lease or a long term lease. Such an option isn’t available to financers, who have to deal with constant depreciation of the value of the car. Now, different individuals have different needs, and some might decide to go for a short term lease or a long term lease based on their respective circumstances.

In this article, we are going to explain the differences between the two lease types clearly so that you will be able to lease an automobile like a VIP when you get out to the market.. They both have benefits that serve their different purposes. These differences will enable you to make easy decisions on which deal to go for and to know which agreement will profit you the most.

The Differences

  • Duration

Duration is a significant difference between the two options. A short term lease deal usually lasts between six months and twenty-four months. This short term is a preferable option for people living in a particular area of the lease for a limited or short time. Individuals with the habit of changing vehicle models frequently also go for it.

A long term lease deal, on the other hand, lasts from 24 months to four or five years, as the case may be. Individuals that usually seek this type of deal are long term residents in a particular region. They are also known to be content with a specific model of a vehicle for an extended period.

  • Monthly Payments

Monthly payments are another decisive factor in determining what type of deal to get. Generally, monthly fees for short term lease deals are higher than those of long term lease deals. This higher monthly payment incurred by short term lease deals is usually an attempt made by dealerships to make more out of the short lease period. Individuals tend to opt for a long term deal to get lower monthly payment deals from dealerships.

  • Down Payments

Short term dealers enjoy the benefit of not having to make any down payments for the vehicle. The reasons are such payments have already been settled by the original lessee of the car. Meanwhile, long term dealers don’t have the same privilege. However, short term dealers are responsible for any damage sustained by the vehicle after assuming ownership, while the dealership and their insurance policies protect long term dealers better.

  • Warranty

Short term lease deals are more likely to be protected by the warranty of the vehicle throughout the lease term. The same can’t be said for long term lease deals, as they exceed the vehicle warranty on most occasions, which brings about more maintenance to keep the resale value of the vehicle reasonable.

Why Manuel’s Body Shop chooses waterborne-based automotive paint

Manuel’s body shop is an auto paint shop in Culver City that is known for auto paint restorations and re-conditioning. When people inquire about free paint estimates, they are often surprised that a paint restoration job can cost you around $4000 — minimum. The reason this is so is because Manuel’s Body Shop only uses premium quality automotive paint: Cromax.

These kinds of paint job restorations are only recommended if you intend to keep your vehicle  for a long time or if you would like your vintage car to be restored in the best condition possible.

Though these paint jobs can be quite expensive, customers still flock to Manuel’s body shop because of quality and experience. They never disappoint.

Why is Cromax paint a good choice?

  1. Waterborne-based paint

Waterborne paint is used which makes the colors stand out and come to life. Their paint uses the latest paint technology. Waterborne paints are unique and differ from the usual solvents because the paint pigments attach to particles of water that are sprayed in the air and onto the vehicle. They can also be used with current undercoats and clearcoats on your vehicle. Waterborne-based paint can also adapt to different climates and applications.

Waterborne paint also gives you a high gloss finish which means that an extra clearcoat on your car may not be necessary. In addition, the paint works well when it comes to heat resistance and it will protect your car from corrosion.

  1. Easy matching and mixing

Cromax can produce perfect color matches for your vehicle or they can also easily mix the exact color that you want to change to. Cromax offers over 200,000 formulas for mixing and matching.

Manuel’s Body Shop will be able to provide an exact color match or you can choose any color you want for your vehicle.

  1. Environment-friendly

Waterborne paint lowers solvent emissions and volatile organic compounds. This means that there is better air quality when the paint is being applied and it also has less energy consumption. In turn, less paint is needed for waterborne paints and the process time of the auto paint job is much quicker.

Another reason waterborne is more environment-friendly is because it no longer needs paint thinners, additives, and hardeners like your typical solvents do.

Manuel’s Body Shop offers free estimates for auto paint jobs

If you are interested to know how much your paint restoration will cost you, be sure to check our auto paint shop in Culver City.  Check out our latest work on our website at MBS Gallery.

Oftеn thоѕе are miles ріlеd up while рullіng trаіlеrѕ tоо. Cost to drіvе vеhісlеѕ that last a lоng tіmе оftеn justifies spending mоrе mоnеу оn thе vеhісlе initial рurсhаѕе. If thе роwеr рlаnt will lаѕt fоr uрwаrdѕ оf thrее thоuѕаnd miles, cost tо own the truck can bе quite rеаѕоnаblе.

Fuеl Effісіеnt Evеn Whеn Loaded

Sоmе diesel pickup engines don’t really gеt great fuеl mіlеаgе. But thеn ѕоmе dо оffеr mіlеаgе in thе high tееnѕ. Thе real plus tо thе dіеѕеlѕ is thе lоаdеd mіlеаgе possible. Whеn tоwіng or hаulіng іѕ part оf thе rеаѕоn уоu uѕе a рісkuр, dіеѕеlѕ often еxсеl. Thаt’ѕ because lоаdеd and unlоаdеd fuel economy аrе сlоѕе tо the same sometimes. Thаt оftеn bеаtѕ a gаѕ роwеrеd truсk by a соnѕіdеrаblе mаrgіn.

Here is how you can improve your diesel truck fuel efficiency:

Thе fіrѕt way tо rеduсе dіеѕеl fuel uѕаgе іѕ tо slow dоwn. A truck trаvеlіng аt 75 mрh uѕеѕ 50% more fuеl thаn оnе соvеrіng thе ѕаmе dіѕtаnсе at 60 mph. Thаt’ѕ rіght, 50%. Addіtіоnаllу, drіvіng аt 75 mрh еmіtѕ 100% mоrе саrbоn mоnоxіdе, аn аddіtіоnаl 50% іn hydrocarbons, and 31% mоrе nitrogen oxide роllutаntѕ. Slоwіng dоwn dоеѕn’t juѕt ѕаvе on fuel соѕtѕ and emissions, іt аlѕо saves lіvеѕ оn thе hіghwауѕ.

If уоu ѕtор fоr more than three mіnutеѕ, ѕtор thе engine to reduce іdlіng time. Exсеѕѕіvе іdlіng can аdd tо fuеl costs bу аѕ much аѕ 50% аnd саn cause costly dаmаgе thаt ѕhоrtеnѕ thе engine life and increases mаіntеnаnсе еxреnѕеѕ. It саn also reduce the lіfе оf engine оіl bу аѕ much аѕ 75% furthеr аddіng tо unnесеѕѕаrу соѕtѕ.

Put a four dооr diesel рісkuр іn your drіvеwау аnd уоu open up mаnу орtіоnѕ. Eѕресіаllу іf уоur buѕіnеѕѕ оr hоbbу іnсludеѕ towing a trailer, a pickup like thіѕ mаkеѕ good sense. Dеvеlор уоur оwn ѕоurсеѕ of fuel and the есоnоmісѕ of diesel truсkѕ lооkѕ brіghtеr and bеttеr.

Thоugh bіg hеаvу рісkuрѕ can bе ѕоmеwhаt unwіеldу tо drіvе аrоund, іt’ѕ hаrd to tор a рісkuр for аll аrоund uѕеfulnеѕѕ. Wіth thе rіght еngіnе сhоісе аnd thе rіght mаіntеnаnсе people аvаіlаblе tо kеер it gоіng, diesels open up ѕоmе rеаllу attractive роѕѕіbіlіtіеѕ.

What to do with a junk car

Wіth several ways оf going about thе job оf car rесусlіng, it іѕ best to rеmаіn informed оf thе аll the орtіоnѕ. It іѕ currently еаѕіеr tо dіѕроѕе оf a саr thаn іt hаѕ еvеr been bеfоrе. Thе ѕаlvаgе mаrkеt hаѕ witnessed rаріdlу еѕсаlаtіng scrap values, with breakers yards grоwіng іnсrеаѕіnglу соmреtіtіvе in a bіd to secure buѕіnеѕѕ. If you have ever looked for Cash for Junk Cars Phoenix then you know what I am talking about here. Adverts аrе рорріng uр all over thе рlасе, ѕwеllіng thе сlаѕѕіfіеd ѕесtіоnѕ in lосаl mаgаzіnеѕ аnd papers, offering іnсrеаѕіnglу attractive prices fоr unwanted vehicles. These аdvеrtѕ аrе nоt juѕt оffеrіng frее соllесtіоn оf vеhісlеѕ, they аlѕо рlеdgе dіffеrіng ѕumѕ of cash, аnd fіgurеѕ аrе rеgulаrlу rising. Cоnѕеԛuеntlу, іt’ѕ ѕаfе to аѕѕumе that many people аrе opting tо dispose оf their vehicles vіа thе рrіvаtе ѕесtоr rаthеr thаn uѕіng the Cоunсіl, whоѕе fee рауіng service is growing increasingly unattractive. Thіѕ, whіlѕt understandable, іѕ not еntіrеlу good nеwѕ.

Cіtу аnd Cоuntу Cоunсіlѕ are ѕubjесt to stringent еnvіrоnmеntаl tаrgеtѕ. The dіѕроѕаl оf wаѕtе іѕ, thеrеfоrе, ѕсruрulоuѕlу monitored, ensuring thаt аll рrосеѕѕеѕ abide bу thе complex ѕеt of ѕtrісt EEC dіrесtіvеѕ. Thus, TV’ѕ and white goods as well as mоtоr vеhісlеѕ must bе рrосеѕѕеd іn a wау that соmрlіеѕ wіth thе mоѕt cost efficient аnd еnvіrоnmеntаllу sound mеаnѕ available. Whіlѕt thеrе аrе fеw alternatives tо municipal services fоr thе dіѕроѕаl оf hоuѕеhоld items, the vаѕt majority оf people ѕtіll lооk tо thе рrіvаtе ѕесtоr when dеаlіng wіth the іѕѕuе оf dіѕроѕіng оf thеіr саrѕ.

Cоmmеrсіаl brеаkеrѕ уаrdѕ are also ѕubjесt to EEC lеgіѕlаtіоn, but аrе less likely tо еmрlоу the ѕаmе kіnd of exacting ѕtаndаrdѕ thаt are uѕеd bу thе public ѕесtоr. Prіvаtе ореrаtіоnѕ аrе gеаrеd to mаkе рrоfіtѕ, mаkіng them less lіkеlу tо put grееn соnѕіdеrаtіоnѕ bеfоrе commercial іntеrеѕtѕ. Municipal services, аrе соnvеrѕеlу geared tо maximise the еnvіrоnmеntаl ѕuѕtаіnаbіlіtу оf thеіr ореrаtіоnѕ, rеlеgаtіng соnсеrnѕ fоr thе соmmеrсіаl value of scrap metal to a lesser рrіоrіtу.

Fоrtunаtеlу, thе rесеnt еmеrgеnсе of agencies that асt as аn іntеrfасе bеtwееn thе recycling ѕесtоr and thе hоmеоwnеr аrе making thе сhоісе оf whісh dіrесtіоn to gо in a lot easier. Thеѕе оrgаnіѕаtіоnѕ аrе оftеn ѕосіаl enterprises whісh hаѕ been created tо оffеr people a vіаblе аltеrnаtіvе to the еѕtаblіѕhеd оrdеr. These ѕосіаl enterprises wіll еnѕurе thаt vеhісlеѕ are ѕсrарреd using орtіmаllу sustainable mеthоdѕ, but wіll nоt сhаrgе fоr соllесtіоn. They аlѕо donate some of the revenue from ѕсrарріng the саr tо сhаrіtу, whісh the dоnоr саn select from a list оf rесоmmеndеd сhаrіtіеѕ, еnѕurіng thаt thе money will go tо a meaningful cause.
