Cars can prove to be quite a costly accessory in our lives and whilst for many it is an absolute necessity, there is no reason to blow most of your wage each month on running your vehicle. The cost of a car alone is substantial enough without needing to fork out huge amounts each month on the running and the caring of your car. If you are looking to reduce your monthly spends then the car would be a good place to start and here are just some of the ways that you can cut down on how much your car costs you each month.
When your car insurance is up for renewal, make sure that you pore through your options with a fine toothcomb. Far too many people simply accept the first offer that comes along or they decide to allow their existing policy to continue, both of which could see you paying more than you should do for the rest of the year. Head to a site like Chill. ie and find out if you can get an even better offer on your car insurance for next year.
Many of us get sucked in to buying any number of gadgets and pieces of tech for our cars and the spending could soon add up. Try to remember that the car is for purpose and whilst there is nothing wrong with improving the way things are inside the car, we should all remember that there is a lot of junk on the market that we simply don’t need.
Cleaning your car on your own is something which the majority of us have the capability to do and for the sake of a couple of hours of your time every fortnight, you could save a lot of money each month. You may think that spending four or five pounds on a wash and valet may not be much, but over the course of a year it will really add up. Fill up that bucket and start saving money.
Driving style has a huge impact on how much your car will cost, in many different ways and a smart and calculated driving approach can really help you to save some money. Firstly there is the fact that you are less likely to be involved in a potentially costly accident; secondly you will do far less damage to your car’s parts through your method of driving, and finally you will use significantly less petrol as you go.
Car sharing is a great way to not only save some money but also to improve road conditions and help to protect the environment. There are many apps out there which can help you to get in touch with other people who are taking the same route as you and you can alternate driving with sharing each day.
These are just a few of the ways in which you can save money on your car each month, if you have any others that work for you, let us know in the comments section below.
