Care tips for seldom-used cars

Maintenance can help you be a responsible vehicle owner. When this is for a car you only use sparingly, it is just as important. There are various ways you can look after it while it is sitting unused. This is through things like cleaning and using car covers.

Preparing For Storage

You should clean your vehicle if you plan on leaving it for an extended period of time. This should include a wash to remove any dirt or debris, polish, and wax, from top to bottom. It is also very helpful to spray unpainted metal with an undercoating to protect it from rust.

You should also top off vehicle fluids. This includes coolant, brake fluid, and others. Fill up your fuel as well if you are storing for a couple of months because this will help stop moisture build up in the tank. The oil needs changing at the same time as it contains contaminants which are damaging when you leave them sitting in your car.

A high quality cover that offers a secure fit is valuable for your vehicle. This will prevent a build up of moisture while allowing for air flow. It also acts as protection from dirt and scratches. This is a wise investment when you are storing a car. You can choose one that matches the shape of your vehicle and we even have custom car covers on offer.
