How To Protect Your Mercedes-Benz’ Resale Value
A vehicle is most likely the second biggest investment you’ll ever make, next to buying a home. So you want it to last as long as possible and provide you with a nice sum of money when you ultimately sell it, right? Well, there are things you can do to make sure you get the most money out of your Mercedes-Benz. Here are a few tips from Mercedes-Benz Brampton, your #1 Mercedes-Benz Ontario dealership.
- Carefully choose your parking places. The more bumper scratches, dings, and faded plastics you have, the more negative impact there will be on your car’s resale value. That’s why it is wise to choose parking places away from other cars. Empty spots in the far reaches of parking lots are also smart choices, even if your passengers protest. Don’t park in spots that expose your vehicle to passing or turning vehicles, either. Try to park in a garage to protect it from the harsh effects of sun and ice, too.
- Keep your mileage as low as possible. When going out, if your friends or family have an older, depreciated vehicle, let them drive and offer to help them with gas. Instead of taking your car on a long driving vacation, rent a vehicle to avoid the wear and tear and added miles to your vehicle. A used car, truck, minivan or SUV with 50,000 miles will sell for more than one with 85,000 miles.
- Wash and wax your Mercedes-Benz often, ideally twice every month. Avoid car washes that use tumbling or twirling scrubbers. The scrubbers actually mar the finish. Wax your vehicle at least twice a year to protect the luster, remove blemishes and prevent fading.
- If your vehicle gets a scratch or sent, repair it immediately. Paintless dent repair technicians often offer to make house calls these days, which makes it easier.
