How regular car services can help you save on insurance
Determining the value of your car
Did you know that the age of your vehicle can determine its value? Apart from your car's actual age, its general status can also determine how much you pay for your insurance. If your vehicle is no longer brand new, or if it's no longer in the best shape, you might save on your insurance by getting a proper evaluation done.
During your regular services, your CRS Automotive technician can alert you of any impending issues that may affect your insurance premium and any future claims. This information will help you to fix anything that can cause accidents and will help you to understand whether it is worth paying for additional add-ons in your insurance coverage, such as collision insurance and comprehensive cover.
Well- maintained tires improve safety and performance
The maintenance of your tires directly affects your vehicle's safety and the performance you can expect from it. By getting your tires checked and rotated when necessary, you won't have to replace your tires as regularly, and you'll be spared the cost of paying out of pocket for insurance claims that could have been avoided through regular tire maintenance.
Keep tabs on your brakes
If you're driving around with worn-out brakes, you're asking for a massive hike in your premium if you need to claim for an accident. By keeping your brakes in tip-top shape, you'll avoid potential accidents ranging from minor fender-benders to massive, fatal collisions. The risk is not worth the cost of replacing your brakes when they need attention.
