Auto Tip of the Week:   
Keeping you and your Car Cool!
Keeping cool is paramount, not  just for ourselves but also for
our cars. In addition to checking the level of coolant fluid in your car, go the extra mile and inspect the state of the hoses and the coolant reservoir. Keep an eye out for leaks, especially at joints and connection points, such as where a hose connects to the engine block. Also, squeeze the hoses (when the engine is cool) every once in a while to make sure they feel firm and not excessively squishy or soft.

For all your 
Car Care Needs !

  Insurance Tip! 

Six factors that affect your car insurance rate:
  • Driving record, accidents and violations.
  • Where you live - rural or urban areas.
  • Age & Gender; males are a higher risk.
  • Marital status; married people have fewer accidents.
  • Previous coverage and whether it was canceled for nonpayment.
  • How often you use your vehicle; which increases risk the more you use it.
  • Call David at 912-961-9617
