Minneapolis, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2013 -- Appearance is everything, shabby paint work can cause your vehicle to lose value even if the car is in perfect mechanical order peeling lacquer, rust spots and fading paint will really put off any potential buyers.
One online car covers retailer, carcoverz.com say they are experiencing increased sales and demand for their product, they put this partially down to the sites increasing internet presence and improving website rankings but they think that increasing gasolene costs might be a factor too.
Mary, a spokesperson for the company said "it is surprising how weather can take its toll on car paint work. Car paint is susceptible to damage from sun, heat, rain and snow what a lot of people don't realize is that if a car is parked up for a long period of time bird droppings and tree sap can really damage any cars appearance.
Scratches, dings and dents can cost you hours upon hours of buffing and potentially hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in repairs but peeling paint can be even more of a problem the only solution to which is often a complete re-spray."
Mary believes that more people are chosing to leave their cars at home for local journeys to school or work, etc. Not driving so much or only using one car within the household is a very easy and effective way to economize.
