How to keep your car or truck looking its very best for the length of ownership.



Your "wheels," your "get around town mobile," your "grocery getter," your "weekend warrior," the "daily driver"; no matter what you call it or use it for, there is one thing that’s certain: we all want our vehicles to look their very best. Have you started noticing your car or truck is getting old? Do you feel like you are not the only one that has noticed the faded paint, scratches and oxidation? Do you feel like giving your car a face-lift?



You aren’t alone. There are preventative measures you can take to help protect your vehicle from harsh elements and daily paint destroying threats; for example, simply using a high-quality cover like the Platinum Shield car cover or the Platinum Shield truck cover goes a long way to help prevent premature cosmetic issues on your "weekend warrior".



When it comes to automobile ownership, you know that anything mechanical will eventually wear out or break down, and the cost of those repairs can be quite expensive. According to the Travel Services Giant AAA, the average repair cost is between $500 & $600, and the average cost of owning and operating a vehicle, AAA said, is about $8,500 this figure includes monthly payments, insurance, and gas. AAA says “that 1 out of every 3 motorists cannot afford to pay the repair bill without incurring some form of debt.”



That’s some serious cash flowing out of your bank account each and every month, and this isn’t even counting the unforeseen issues that come from daily use & storage of your car or truck. The daily debris, dirt, construction dirt, enemies from above and harsh grime from below all are threats to your car or truck’s finish. These repairs can cost from several hundred to several thousands of dollars to correct; in some cases exceeding $1800 for these cosmetic repairs.



Here are three quick, simple, and effective things you can do to make your vehicle look like it did the day you bought it. These tips will change the way you and your friends look at your vehicle!



#1 Waxing your car is fairly quick and easy. The best part is the return on investment! When you properly wax your vehicle, the exterior will shine like it did the day you bought it. This will help to keep the appraised value and resell value higher VS. no maintenance whatsoever.



#2 Removing paint residue left on by another vehicle is something you do not have to take your vehicle to a professional to have the paint residue removed. You can quite easily do it yourself!



#3 Vacuuming the interior of your vehicle can give a whole new life to your interior. Your seats and carpets will look and smell better than they have in years!



In the long-run, one of the most inexpensive ways to protect your car or truck is by shielding its finish from any and all harsh threats. Vehicle protection is a major part of resale or trade-in value. To protect your vehicle, use a quality cover like the Platinum Shield Truck Cover to protect your investment for years to come.
