Having a car may feel accomplishing, but maintaining it to ensure that fresh car feeling never goes away involves a lot of work and money. 

When you add them together and factor in all the money you've spent on insurance, road tax, servicing, accessories and everything that allows you a functioning vehicle - you're losing thousands in your car, which also depreciates by the year.

Let us help you take a closer look into some of the unnecessary car expenses that you might not have realised and how to avoid them next time.

Insurance

We're not saying you shouldn't get insurance because it is important and definitely necessary.

Your insurance policy is a good place to start to help trim off some expenses for your car. Most of us tend to stick to the same policy and renew it year after year without really looking through the pricing and details. Comparing prices at least once a year can help save you money and allow you to get the best option at a competitive price.

Another opportunity for you to look at is: If you've been in a long-term relationship with your insurance agent, consider asking or negotiating with them for a discount. They may be able to help you upgrade to better coverage at a cheaper rate. Either way, you'll still be saving more and landing yourself a better insurance plan.

Premium Gas

We all definitely want the best for our cars - better fuel, sophisticated tyres, new rims with the latest accessories like dashcams and humidifiers.

Of all of this, trust us when we say that paying extra for that nozzle filled with premium gas is definitely not worth your money or ego. However, the difference between regular and premium gas is quite significant. Unless your car requires premium-grade fuel, regular fuel works just as well to keep your car running efficiently. You can definitely skip this upgraded expense and put your money somewhere else that can benefit you in the long run.

Car Servicing

Hear us out.

Not every issue with your car requires a professional to look into and need their expertise to fix it. 

Many of these issues are mostly minimal, like replacing your wiper blades to even filling the air for your tyres can all be done via a simple tutorial on YouTube and shopping for parts or accessories at your local hardware store. All you need to do is schedule some time out, grab some tools and get into the work and you'll be well satisfied with these small fine-tune yourself.

We definitely don't recommend skimping out on these fixes if you know that professional service is what's right to get the job done. If you don't have the ability or the means to do it, definitely send it to the professionals. Just be sure to check around for a mechanic that's reliable or the one you've registered at, as some manufacturers make it mandatory for all auto parts and services to be completed by professionals to preserve the warranty.
