Let’s face it; life is busy, and there’s plenty of things you’d rather be doing with your free time than dealing with lengthy lists of chores. A fast-paced life can come with great rewards, like a dream car; and fortunately, it doesn’t take as much time as you might think to keep that dream car running smoothly! Here are our top tips to make car maintenance easier, so keeping your lifestyle car in top shape can fit in with your lifestyle.
Get your car detailer to come to your workplace
So you know that getting your car detailed is important, but you’re struggling with the wasted time? Time to consider an on-demand mobile car wash and detailing service! Your car detailer can meet you at your place of work, or at your home, and get to work with a whole lot less fuss. And you may even be able to get a bit of a discount if some of your colleagues get their cars detailed at the same time; easier and cheaper for both of you, and your car detailer will be thrilled to make better use of their time too!
There’s nothing like the feeling of driving your car into work needing a wash, and coming out that evening to an immaculate, freshly washed and vacuumed vehicle – without having to drive anywhere, wait around and so on. Too easy!
Use a mobile mechanic
Getting to a mechanic is one of life’s great #firstworldproblems; dropping your car off, picking up a rental vehicle, and having to schlep back to the mechanic’s the next day. What if you could get it all sorted with a phone call, without having to send your car off anywhere or waiting in line? Well, a mobile mechanic like Brisbane’s Dr Roadworthy is the answer! When you hire a mobile mechanic, you can get your routine servicing and repairs done fuss-free in the location of your choice; and in the case of Dr Roadworthy, they’ll even offer log-book servicing, authorised roadworthy inspections, and pre-purchase inspections in Ipswich, Logan, Beenleigh, Browns Plains and Brisbane (QLD). From brake checks to timing belt replacements, and all manner of other maintenance and repair jobs, you don’t have to wait until you’ve broken down on the side of the road to use a mobile mechanic; you can enjoy the same quality of services you’d expect from an in-premise mechanic, at your home, business, holiday home or just about anywhere else, during hours that work for you.
Schedule preventative maintenance
An a busy sort of guy or gal, you no doubt use calendars and schedules to keep on top of a whole lot of tasks; so just add vehicle maintenance to that list! You can schedule in reminders to organise preventative maintenance for your vehicle, and even ask your mechanic to maintain service records for your vehicle. This makes the process so much easier, and it’s one less responsibility for you to bear.
It’s best to pre-plan your regularly scheduled services in advance, even when you’re using a mobile mechanic; that way, you won’t have to rush things when you see your kms tick over.
Fuel up BEFORE you run out of fuel!
Okay, so this might sound a bit obvious, but when you’ve got a lot on your plate it’s easy to miss the little things; and running out of fuel unexpectedly and waiting for roadside assistance is a fair sight more time-consuming and annoying than fuelling up on time. If you’re finding it hard to find the time to visit your local service station, a few handy tips include:
- Think about when your least busy days at work are, and plan accordingly.
- Mondays and Tuesdays are the quietest days at the service station, as it tends to be busiest right before the weekend. And it’s not just about days; times matter too, so avoid filling up during rush hour on the way home! By squeezing a trip to the servo into your Tuesday lunch hour, you’ll have more time on your hands later.
We hope this guide has made maintaining your car a bit easier, so you can squeeze in more valuable time for the things and people you love!
