Sunday Car repair a big help for people who work the usual 9-5. For many of us, the weekends are the only time we have to get things done. Anyone who only has a couple of days to get things done, knows how annoying Sundays can be. It seems like everywhere is closed, and you simply have no time to get things done. This is especially disappointing when we’re talking about car repair, because you might have to leave your car in for a day or two.
So what’s the alternative? Bring your car in on a Sat or booking time off during the week to get the problem fixed. Both time consuming and in some cases very costly. And that’s if it’s not an emergency! If you wake up on a Sunday morning to find you’ve got a flat tyre, then you’re very limited in your options. Luckily Sunday car repairs are just round the corner in Onehunga!
When to book in for Sunday car repairs
Car repair is a normal part of owning a vehicle, and is just a necessary evil that every car owner must accept. However, there’ll come a point when you must decide if it’s worth fixing a vehicle, or if you would be better off simply buying a new one. We’ve put together this short article to give you some help when it comes to making that decision.
When the car repair is more expensive than the actual car
It may seem obvious, but some people continuously fork out for car repair to keep an old car on the road. It may be for sentimental reasons, or some may think they wouldn’t get anything if they sold it, so might as well keep it going, but this is just throwing money away. It’s time to invest in a new vehicle.
Think about future repairs
Talk to your mechanic about the state of your car and what could possibly go wrong with it in the next year or two. If you need some car repair jobs now, and it’s only going to be a temporary measure, then there’ no point in paying a grand now, only to be back again this time next year with another problem.
Older cars tend to be more dangerous on the roads. Not only are they more likely to break down, but they weren’t built with the incredible safety features of modern cars. If you’re considering whether to book in for car repair or go for a new car altogether, this should definitely be a factor in your decision making.
Factor in other costs
It’s not as simple as the repairs costing X and a new car costs Y, so it’s worth it. You need to think about other costs, such as insurance for a new car, weekly payments if you’re not buying it outright, any repairs a new car might need. Work out how much you’re going to spend on car repair with your old one over the next 24 – 48 months and how much a new car will cost over the same period.
Remember, Sunday car repairs aren’t offered for everyone, so call us today and save yourself having to give up your Saturday or book time off work!
