Cost management tips to help you through the tough times

Last month, we were hit with the biggest fuel price increase South Africa has ever experienced. And hard-hit motorists are definitely feeling the crunch. In this blog, we take a look at how the clever cost management of your vehicle can help lighten the burden on your pocket.

Put a plan in place

The price of vehicles is increasing and so is the price of parts, making second-hand vehicles more attractive to consumers. Car owners should ensure they have some kind of maintenance plan, warranty and insurance because there will be a knock-on effect on major services and replacement parts. It is wiser, in the long run, to pay monthly for these services than to have to shell out large amounts when parts have to be replaced due to accidents or mechanical failure.

Regular maintenance will also help to avoid breakdowns which can hit motorists hard. A breakdown comes with its own set of hidden costs such as towing, parts, mechanical labour and car rentals, not to mention the possible impact on your mobility and productivity.
