I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.

How to Store Your Summer Auto for Fall and Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Sep 26, 2016 at 05:34PM by Michelle Bogle)
used auto dealership vancouver bcAs sad as this may sound, the lazy days of summer are over and the first day of fall has come and gone. And, with that comes the need to store your used vintage Mustang convertible or zippy Focus RS and switch over to a more rugged vehicle, like the Explorer or the F-150.
 
But, before you abandon your summer wheels and welcome in the new season, there are a few things to keep in mind when storing your automotive:
 
Cover It
A garage or an enclosed storage facility is the best place to store a vehicle because it will keep your car or truck protected from the elements and at a stable temperature. If you have to leave your vehicle outside, then invest in a quality car cover to help keep it clean and dry.
 
Detail It
Speaking of clean, you should also wash and detail your vehicle before storing it, so that stains and droppings don’t eat away at the paint while your vehicle sits for the season. Don’t forget to also clean your wheels and the undersides of your fenders. If you have time, a quick coat of wax is also a smart idea.
 
Change the Oil
If you plan on storing the vehicle for more than a month, then be sure to give it a final oil change before hibernation sets in. This will protect your engine from any sitting contaminants.
 
Fill It Up
Similar to an oil change, if you plan on storing your vehicle for more than a month, be sure to top up the fuel tank with gas to avoid any condensation from building up. It’s also wise to add a fuel stabilizer to the tank to stop any rust from forming.
 
Drive It
Any battery that is left to sit for a long time will eventually lose its charge. To avoid this problem, it’s advised to start your car every two weeks and take it for a quick 15-minute drive to recharge the battery. This will also prevent any flat spots from forming on your tires.
 
Deter Critters
Critters, like mice and other rodents, love to nest in stored vehicles because they are a safe haven from the cold. To deter them from calling your beloved Mustang home, be sure to seal off any areas that they can get into, like the exhaust pipes or the air intake. While you are at it, leave some mothballs along the perimeter of the vehicle for an added deterrent.
 
Insure It
While it may be tempting to let your insurance lapse while your vehicle is in storage, your insurance company may raise your rates in the future for having a gap in your coverage. It’s best to speak with your broker to discuss your insurance options for storing your car or truck.
 
But, what if you have to store your summer vehicle, but don’t have a secondary auto to drive throughout the fall and winter? Well, that’s an easy problem to solve – simply visit our dealership in New Westminster, B.C. to check out our extensive inventory of quality used cars, trucks and SUVs.
