If you’re like most people, you probably keep cleaning your car lower on your priority list. However, keeping up with a maintenance routine could be seriously beneficial when it comes time to sell your vehicle. It’s fact that detailing your car regularly will boost its value.
We agree with the Logan Daily News in saying your vehicle should receive a deep cleaning at least four times a year, or once every season. This “deep cleaning” should include vacuuming and shampooing all carpets, treating your leather interior, and detailing your dashboard and other compartments.
In recent years, there has also been debate over waxing. Is it really necessary now that vehicles come with clear coat to protect the paint? The answer is yes. That clear coating is much thinner than you’d think, and won’t provide an adequate amount of protection from the sun and other elements. A good rule of thumb is to wax your car once each season. Consider setting a reminder on your computer or phone to make sure you take this commitment to your car seriously.
Of course, the safest way to boost the value of your vehicle is to bring it to a professional four times a year for a full detailing. At Rick’s, this includes washing, waxing, shampooing, leather treatment, and engine and wheel detailing. We’ll even apply a protectant to keep the plastic parts of your automobile from discoloring.
Remember, regular maintenance is much easier than damage control!
