Don’t Get Stuck with an unexpected repair bill from your lease company!

Mar 24, 2015

  If you’ve ever leased a vehicle before, you’re sure to understand the anxiety people feel as the time to lease turn in winds down.  Your vehicle has been good to you for the past 24/36 months, but all of the times when you have been less than good to it may now come back to haunt you.  In your estimation, the vehicle is still in very good shape; it’s clean, no major damage, nothing to be too concerned with.  OK-yes it does have a couple of door dings and that one scratch on the fender, the bumper has a minor scuff-buts it’s not likes its cracked or dented…its hardly noticeable.  You’re sure the vehicle will pass the lease turn read more…

Should I repair or replace my bumper?

Feb 6, 2015

Repair or Replace? As a society, we’ve become accustom to living in a Throw-Away World something breaks we toss it and buy a new one.  From the latest electronic gadgets to home appliances to the furniture in our homes products today just don’t seem built to last.

One of most common items being replaced today are plastic bumpers. Yes you read that correctly most bumpers today are made of plastic. They are lightweight, can be painted any color imaginable and best of all from a manufacturers standpoint are inexpensive read more…
