Organising your garage ...

It is so easy to use your garage space as a dumping ground and if you are not carefully you will find a few years down the line that you cannot use your garage in a practical way as it is full of items that you no longer use or often need.

Cluttered garages severely limit the usefulness of this vital...

When our families are growing, we can never seem to have enough space in our vehicles. Preparing for holiday trips is usually a nightmare as we try to fit children, dogs, suitcases and beach paraphernalia into our family car sometimes having to resort to buying a roof rack or box to accommodate bikes and scooters, but as our children leave home some of us find that the advantages of running a smaller vehicle outweigh the need for a larger one.

Are we all going to be ...

The current government is encouraging us all to think about switching to electric cars as the pollution levels across the world rise at a tremendous rate causing a growing number of health issues but is it really feasible to expect us all to do this in the near future? Up until recently the main concern was the range an electric car could travel on a single charge, but it has been shown that newer electric cars have a range exceeding two hundred miles. So, what are the current benefits and drawbacks for the customer thinking of switching? The benefit to...

Buying a private number...

If you are looking for a quirky gift for the avid car lover or just want to get something a little personal for yourself or a loved one, then a private number plate may be perfect. A private number plate also known as a cherished plate or personalised number plate is a plate that has been selected by the owner or someone else to be assigned to a vehicle.

If you are looking to buy a second hand vehicle there are a number of points that you need to consider. One of them is mileage as many parts on a car are only designed to last a certain number of miles before they need to be replaced – such as a cambelt. If you go to look at a car which is very low mileage for its age, you may have doubts as to whether the mileage is genuine. On average, most cars do about ten thousand miles per annum.

If you are looking to buy a new car then you may be given the option to part exchange your old one. Garages will often offer you a price to part exchange your vehicle which will be knocked off the price of the vehicle you are buying. This price is usually less than you would get if you should it privately but if you were looking to buy a car that was quite a lot of money, then you are more likely to get a better price for your part exchange. Although you will get more money by selling your...
