Will A Mercedes-Benz Car Cover Help Retain Resale Value?

Will A Mercedes-Benz Car Cover Help Retain Resale Value?

Any Mercedes-Benz is a fine automobile and worthy of the very best care. In fact all it takes is a little extra care for the vehicle to retain more of its value. That’s important at trade-in time. There’s no better way to keep your fine machine looking “just waxed” and in mint condition than using a Mercedes-Benz car cover when the car is not in use. To see how using a car cover will affect the resale value of your Mercedes-Benz you need to understand how the used car buying and selling industry evaluates used cars. In most cases, buyers and sellers alike use the information published by Kelly Blue Book (KBB). The “Blue Book” value of any automobile is based on a condition grade of poor, fair, good or excellent. The value difference between a car in fair condition and the same automobile in good condition is typical $1,000 or more. On a recent model Mercedes-Benz, the difference is much higher. This is only a single example. In my research, I discovered other Mercedes-Benz models with a much higher value difference between excellent and good, including the incredible CL65 AMG Coupe.  Only Lexus has a value drop close to the Mercedes-Benz line for minor discrepancies and damage to the paintwork. Could it be Mercedes-Benz’s new ceramic paint system that’s making the difference? I suspect that it is.

You might be asking yourself if a ready-fit car cover is appropriate. After all, they are available off-the-shelf at a mere fraction of the price. My strong recommendation is that you don’t even consider it as an option. Based on my own personal experience with cheap car covers, I only recommend products made by Cover craft and Cover king. Their custom-fit covers are premium quality and they are made right here in the USA. Plus, both companies feature computer-controlled construction using the best fabrics available anywhere in the world. You get a perfect fit for your car, guaranteed. I think the incredible fit shows off the classic lines of the car, but the real purpose of making it so snug is to prevent the possibility of damage to your vehicle’s fine paintwork. While your local Mercedes-Benz dealer can order a “factory original” car cover for you, I promise you that it’s not the same quality. The real issue is that your dealer can only offer you one fabric choice. If one fabric was suitable to all climate conditions, I guess that would be okay, but it’s not. If UV protection from the sun is your only concern, a factory cover might do the job, but it’s not really the premium quality your Mercedes-Benz deserves. For the money and piece of mind, a high-quality Cover craft or Cover king custom car cover is the smart choice. They offer the best fit and the widest selection of materials for indoor, outdoor, weatherproof or something for all use conditions. What’s more, you will have a choice of colors and special features, such as custom logos.

Hey ladies, a custom-fit car cover also makes a wonderful gift. I know, because I received one as a holiday gift more than ten years ago and I still have it today. So, if your special man is a car guy and loves to pamper his Benz, pamper him with the gift of a cover for his car. It’s a gift he will appreciate every time he uses it. If you’re considering giving one as gift for Christmas, Valentines Day or even a Birthday, think about where and how he will use it. If your Mercedes-Benz man pampers his car and tucks it away in the garage before going to bed, what he needs is an indoor car cover. If he drives an SL model, remember that storage space is tight, so a heavy 4-layer cover will be an issue. If he needs protection for outdoor parking, be sure to compare fabrics that work both indoors and out.

In all cases, consider a locking cable and a storage bag. The locking cable helps with theft protection. You will sleep better at night knowing both car and cover are safe and sound. A custom-fit car cover from Cover craft or Covering is one of the few car accessories that will help you retain the long-term value of your Mercedes-Benz. My research shows that a recent model Mercedes-Benz decreases in value by 5% or more when the condition of the paintwork drops from “excellent” to “good”. This is likely due to the cost to recondition the ceramic paint system that’s unique to your car. All it takes is a few door dings, minor scratches or paint chips and your vehicle will no longer be pristine. That’s why it’s so important to protect it. When you keep it covered you keep it safe from a dangerous world that will otherwise chip away at the fine finish. Most people are faced with the dilemma; car cover or garage. They definitely want to protect their car. They are sensible enough to realize that if they don’t do something about it, all their hard earned money, and favorite car, will go down the drain. Cars that are protected have a longer life expectancy than those that are not. Fact.

So the question remains; get a garage or a car cover?

Well, look at the possibilities. Many people will find that even if they wanted a garage they don’t have where to put it. Property is small and expensive nowadays. If there is space to build, people would prefer to add a room to the house for living, not for the car. This is aside from the monetary aspect. Garages are expensive to build. There is planning permission to get, architect, builders, and this is only the beginning. The expense is enormous, and there’s the upkeep too. However, say these aren’t problems, the money and space is there. So what to choose. Practicalities. In all due respect, there is nothing more practical to protect a car than a car cover. A car cover, due to it being so compact, can be taken around everywhere. This is to say, that wherever the car is, so is its cover. The cover can come along in the trunk of the car, and be able to protect the car anywhere in the world from anything. This is something that garages cannot compete with!

In addition, cars aren’t even always so safe in garages either. In the majority of cases, garages are not spacious places, in fact they’re usually quite tight. This therefore means that often people have to squeeze past the car to get from one end of the garage to the other. In doing so they may inadvertently scratch or dent the car. In addition, a garage does not keep the car dust free like the car cover will. In fact it is usually garages, where people do not frequently clean, that create more dust than ever. Many keep their old junky items, full of dust, in the garage, and therefore keeping the car in there, is simply an invitation for layer upon layer if dust, and even dirt too.

How to Buy Car Wash Dealership

If you decide to buy a car wash dealership, you can start your own business by taking a dealership from a recognized and trusted brand. Dealership is a risk-free and easy way to start a business .But you need to make significant investments for both capital and time. Make sure you know what you will receive for your investment before you get a dealership.

Steps To Get Dealership

Decide how to pay for the dealership. Ask yourself how much money you can make and how much money you can afford to lose. If you need a loan, you need to carefully calculate how you will receive this credit and how to proceed after receiving the credit. Costs will vary depending on your business location and specific dealerships.

Make sure you have the necessary skills to manage your car wash business. If you have worked on the car wash in the past, it will be useful for you to know how to carry out the daily tasks. If you do not have experience, be sure to receive training that includes basic business management when purchasing dealership. It is very important to know how to manage your dealer’s business money and how to hire and manage employees. If you don’t have these skills, you may want to consider working with a partner who has the skills, or you can study by attending business management courses.

Evaluate companies that offer different auto wash dealerships for you. Dealership systems have different ranges. For example, you can run single-person operations where customers can go and pick up the service right there on the spot, or you can set up a big business where you can wash hundreds of cars per day, which require larger investments. The best way to find the right one for you is to participate in dealership fairs. You can talk to different companies’ authorities, evaluate and compare different car wash companies, and you can understand which ones are right for you.

Carefully review the disclosure information that the company has to provide to you before purchasing the dealership. These documents contain detailed information about the operations of the company and the company. You will also find a list of what kind of facilities you will have as a dealer and how much you expect to spend on opening your new car wash. You may also want to know what costs are not reimbursable and how much other expenses are, such as establishment opening license and facility construction. The disclosure of this information also indicates to you how much company experience the company authorities have and whether they have cases of lawsuits, bankruptcy or mortgaged property. Check how much you need to get training. Find out where these trainings are and how useful the training you receive at the end of your initial training period can help you. In fact, it is ideal for a company representative to help you with the problems that arise when setting up your business. This is especially true in the first year of operation. It will be useful for you to have a lawyer when you are reviewing dealership documents.

Find out more about what they think about their firm by contacting various dealer owners who have already done this job. Learn the advantages of being a re seller and also ask about your disadvantages. Find out if they have regrets about getting a dealership. If you have serious problems with the dealership system, you should investigate different companies that you can work with.

After paying the required deposit and filling in the company’s application form, contact the car wash dealership. Perform this step if you are confident that you can handle the car wash job and get a good profit from the money you pay. Each firm has different procedures and screening procedures for dealers. For this reason, you have to accept all the demands of the company that gives the dealership. You may also need to provide references, business plans or other types of documents as evidence of financial stability and wealth.

After acceptance into the dealership, sign all the final documents that the company has given you. Pay the necessary fees. Read everything carefully to make sure what is expected of you and what can be changed and what the terms and conditions are.
