Looking after your car on a tight budget can seem difficult but there are some ways you can cut back safely.
Maintaining your car on a budget
There are some things that go without saying you need insurance, tax and an MOT certificate to ensure your car is road worthy. You also need to ensure that your car is safe for yourself and any passengers you have but having said that there are a few ways to bring the costs of running a car down.
When your car insurance renewal comes through the price is often a lot higher than it was the previous year. You can very easily compare prices using a comparison site such as confused.com. This may be a bit of a pain to do but you could save £100’s each year.
Fuel prices have risen dramatically since I learnt to drive 13 years ago. I remember spending just £30 per month, now I’m lucky to spend £100 each month. But you can compare your local fuel prices online to get a little more for your money. You can compare your local fuel prices using this link Click Here.
Ask a friend
If you know any mechanically minded people you might ask them to take a look at any potential problems before you head to a garage. If its something simple such as a wiper blade you might be able to put it right yourself.
Regularly check your car
Regularly check your tyres to ensure they have enough air and tread on them (or ask a friend if you have no idea) and check your oil every now and again. Another thing to check is washer fluid, there is nothing worse than running out midway through your journey.
Go for something with good MPG
This might be obvious but the more mpg your car will do the more budget friendly it is. Find out which cars have the Best and Worst Gas Mileage 2018 with a simple google search.
