We take care of our bodies by taking a shower every day. We take care of our teeth by brushing them every day and have deep cleaning a few times a year. We take care of our health by exercising and going to a doctor for regular check-ups. Similarly we take care of our automobiles by filling it up with gas weekly and taking it to our mechanic for service every 3 to 5 thousand miles

So why don’t we take care of the outside of our cars? Isn’t your automobile the second biggest investment you made after your home? Wouldn’t it make sense to keep outside looking shiny and as good as or better than inside?

Have you ever seen a car so dusty that it is difficult to see through a glass window which carries a message from a concerned citizen -”wash me”?  My personal favorite example of untidiness took place a few years ago when our good customer brought his Toyota Camry for collision repair and requested that we do not wash his car after repairs are completed and specifically not throw away any newspapers from the inside. You might want to know how many newspapers were in the back of the car. Well, they packed the back seat to the point of where you could not see through the back window.

Let’s make a New Year resolution to keep our vehicle clean in 2015. It even rhymes so it must be necessary. All it takes is to wash it once a week and to detail or polish the outside paint of your car may be once every three months. You will be surprised how much better you will feel about yourself driving a clean, shiny vehicle. The feeling is similar to one you experience to when you get out of the shower and put a new set of clothes on.

And it’s not just your vanity or a pride of ownership that is at stake here, keeping your automobile’s paint at maximum shine brings its value up. You might still object to this by saying – I am a very busy individual and simply do not have any extra time required for weekly car washes and especially quarterly details which would most likely leave me without my car for a full day. To which I say – make time, just like you make time for personal grooming, make some time for grooming of your vehicle.

If you simply do not wish to do it yourself, there plenty of carwashes and detail shops all over town who are willing especial accommodations for you. Or you can call me directly at Hilton Auto Collision Center and we will pick up your vehicle detail it and deliver it back to you for no extra charge and provide you a daily car rental if needed. So what are you waiting for? Put this on top of your New Year’s resolutions for 2015, to keep your vehicle clean.
