Save, Save, Save!

Do you like money? Are you interested in finding out how to save money? Have you been forced to cut back on luxuries and general spending due to the current
state of the economic climate in the UK?

If the answer to these questions is yes – which it will be for the overwhelming majority of us – then you’re in luck, because by the time you’ve finished reading this article you could be in a position to make extra savings for the rest of your life.

The recession has forced most of us to limit our spending, but one aspect of life which proves difficult to cut back on is driving. All of us need to drive, but how can we limit the costs? The obvious answer is to get a smaller, cheaper vehicle or start driving less. And when it comes to cheap small vehicles I know a lot thanks to my time at Croydon Used Car Sales.pound_sign_2__large

But saving in this way impacts on quality of life; walking to work may mean earlier nights and earlier mornings, which means less free time. Getting a smaller vehicle will equate to uncomfortable journeys when the whole family is in the car, and might not be as nice to drive as that smooth BMW 3 Series that you’re used to. You may not like the idea that something could go wrong with a used car at any given time and you won’t have any sort of guarantee, and it will end up costing you even more. Well what about pre reg cars which are technically used cars as they have been registered, however buying a pre reg is actually more like purchasing a new car?

Have you ever considered saving money on MOT and servicing? We pay for these every year but most people don’t actually know what a good price is for an MOT or a service. It is important to get a good quote, especially considering the additional costs you might have to pay if there are any issues with the exhaust or the radiator.

But how do you go about saving? The standard protocol is to go down to your local garage and accept the first price put in front of you, because how are you to know if you could get the same service for cheaper elsewhere?
Well fortunately, all of that is about to change thanks to an online service and MOT centre comparison site which has been set up by leading UK automotive website

Users can input the make and model of their car, as well as their address, and within seconds the system will display a list of garages along with pricing structures sorted by proximity to the postcode.

The service is incredibly easy to use and could save you money every year for the rest of your life.
