A Clean Car is Money in the Bank

Purchasing a new car is a major financial investment. Keeping it clean is an easy and inexpensive way to protect its resale and trade-in value, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"Many motorists procrastinate when it comes to cleaning their vehicles," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Whether you do it yourself or have it cleaned professionally, proactively keeping your car clean on the outside, and tidy on the inside, will pay big dividends when it comes to maintaining your vehicle's value over time."

The Car Care Council suggests five simple steps to keep a vehicle clean, helping protect it from the elements and preserve its value.

  1. Declutter - Start the cleaning process by removing excess clutter from inside the car as it can be distracting and hazardous, especially when debris finds its way near the gas and brake pedals. Don't forget to clear out items that have accumulated in the trunk as they can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency.
  2. Clean the Interior - The next step is to thoroughly clean the interior, wash the windows, and clean and install floor mats. Be sure to vacuum on a regular basis. A clean and orderly interior allows you spot issues in the cabin so you can get them repaired before they get worse.
  3. Wash the Exterior - Give your car a good wash from top to bottom using products specifically made for automobiles. Always clean the tires and wheels before washing the body, and don't use the same washing mitt or cloth for both.
  4. Wax Twice a Year - Waxing not only protects a vehicle's finish, but it also makes subsequent washing easier. Before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign particles on the paint. It is important to note that waxing should be done in the shade, not direct sunlight.
  5. Fix Chips - If you find minor paint damage, cover the paint chips as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. For a quick fix until you can get paint touchup supplies, dab a little clear nail polish on the scratch.

    Needed to have my brakes looked at after being told i needed to have them replaced right away by another business. After a few minutes they actually told me I wasn't in dire need of having them replaced. I opted to go ahead and have them done just because the squealing was annoying. But I have to say, I appreciate the honesty. They have a nice waiting area as well although I was only there for about 45 minutes. They offered the best prices after calling around and their professionalism was outstanding. Thanks guys.

    I can't believe no one has reviewed this wonderful place yet!! I went here for some A/C repairs and was so glad I did!! They were more than helpful getting me in right away and the customer service was exceptional! The waiting area is well decorated and inviting(unlike most service shops) also the staff was So friendly! I was asked more than once if I wanted a bottle of water or anything to drink:) The guys were beyond helpful explaining what was being done and trying to get my car repaired quickly so I could be on my way! My A/C is still blowing cold and it was a pleasant service experience. I Definitely recommend Velocity!
