She's been giving her new Kitchen Aide ice cream attachment a good work out and perfecting the chocolate recipe. Meanwhile across the county Randy gave his own Kitchen Aide some love with some fresh strawberries. Let us know which one is your favorite. As you can see, Jameson is partial to his mom's Chocolate.

Have you ever bought a new car at a dealership and the sales representative said you had to get all of your service and maintenance completed at their dealership to maintain your warranty? This has been a problem throughout New Jersey for years as it instills fear in the consumer that they don’t have the freedom to perform any maintenance or repairs on their own or by their favorite auto repair shop. With the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, these fears are no more and consumers have the freedom to take their vehicle anywhere for service, or service it themselves, while still maintaining their warranty.

STRESSFUL TIMES

There are a lot of things going through everyone’s minds right now, most especially the uncertainty about so many things. You may be working from home, hours cut back or possibly facing or have lost your job. We feel for you and we are going through similar struggles ourselves.

SCHEDULING

There are many of you that your norm is to be a road warrior and now your commute is a left turn at the kitchen with a quick stop for your coffee. Green light to continue into your office (dining room) and get to work. We realize that your day is full and running errands on that “lunch break” (which probably never happened). You are doing your best to juggle so many things - The job, the kids, the food, the endless amounts of dishes, the list goes on. How will everything ever get done?  We can help you with that. 

HOW WE CAN HELP

We want you to know that we are happy to pick up/drop off your vehicle and take care of those issues that you might have been putting off because you need your car to get to work, school and sports. Now all those things that have suddenly come to a halt.

If you are considered an essential worker, first of all we want to thank you for what you do. We know that there are a lot of you that are putting yourself at risk for the good of others. Getting to your job is stressful enough. The worry you feel about the condition of your vehicle is something that we want to take off your shoulders.

Keep Your Vehicle Moving...

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Apr 15, 2020 8:30:00 AM

KEEP YOUR CAR MOVING

Right now we are all under the governors orders to stay at home. That in turn means that you are most likely not traveling the roads and there is probably a good chance your vehicle has not been moved in a few weeks. We can not stress enough how important to keep your car moving.

 

Cars are not meant to be parked. They are meant to be moving. There are problems that can creep up on your vehicle if it sits for an extended period of time, particularly when there has been a lot of rain, like we have experienced this spring. 

BRAKES

The brakes can rust up. If the vehicle isn’t moving and the brakes are not being operated to clean off those rust spots, more rust can build up.  As rust is invasive, this can cause your brakes to perform improperly, resulting in a safety concern.

Pineapple

Carrot Cake  


Ingredients

For the cake:

2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/3 cups vegetable oil

3 extra-large eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 cup raisins

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 pound carrots, grated

1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple

For the frosting:
3/4 pound cream cheese, at room temperature

1/2 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pound confectioners' sugar, sifted


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter 2 (8-inch) round cake pans. Line with parchment paper, then butter and flour the pans.

For the cake:
Beat the sugar, oil, and eggs together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light yellow. Add the vanilla. In another bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups flour, the cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Toss the raisins and walnuts with 1 tablespoon flour. Fold in the carrots and pineapple. Add to the batter and mix well.
Divide the batter equally between the 2 pans. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely in the pans set over a wire rack.

For the frosting:
Mix the cream cheese, butter and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until just combined. Add the sugar and mix until smooth.

Place 1 layer, flat-side up, on a flat plate or cake pedestal. With a knife or offset spatula, spread the top with frosting. Place the second layer on top, rounded side up, and spread the frosting evenly on the top and sides of the cake.

Understanding The Inspection Requirements For Your Commercially Registered Vehicle

By Bill DeBoer on Mar 19, 2020 4:47:40 PM

The vehicle inspection program in New Jersey has made changes in recent years that many people may not know about. Some of these important changes were made to commercially registered vehicles as well. If you’re unsure whether your vehicle has a commercial registration, check your registration card and look for the “registration code 11”. The license plate of the vehicle will also begin with an “X” if it is commercially registered. These vehicles fall under different guidelines than regular passenger vehicles and here are a few of the important factors you need to know about the process.

My Nan's Corned Beef Recipe

By Bill DeBoer on Mar 6, 2020 6:31:28 PM

My Nan, Ruth Salmon, was from Hazelton, PA; Pennsylvania Dutch country. She married my Grandfather John Paul Salmon in 1946. His family migrated to America from Ireland during the potato famine. Although Nan wasn't of Irish heritage, she did everything she could to make him happy. His family was large and they loved to gather for all occasions, especially Saint Patrick's Day. Her first attempt at St.Patrick's Day dinner was a disaster. But after a few trials, she nailed the "Best Corned Beef in America and Ireland!" Well at least according to John. 😉 From that day forward Nan's St. Patrick's Day Dinner always drew a crowd and she was famous for her corned beef. She kept her recipe a secret until late into her adult life. It was a way she could get all the kids and grandchildren (and now great grandchildren) together.

DeBoer's Auto Works with National Fleet Companies

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Feb 24, 2020 12:48:47 PM

 Some business owners employ mobile workforces. They need to provide company vehicles to their employees. In some cases business owners, or a  general manager will make decisions to maintain the fleet and make sure that all the services on the vehicles are being kept up on. In other cases, businesses will hire a fleet company which is contracted to handle all of the maintenance of the fleet. In the case of national fleet companies, they can dictate which automotive service shops can handle your vehicle. There are times when going to these locations for service is inconvenient for you. We at DeBoer’s Auto work with many national fleet companies.

Make Paying For Fleet Services Simple At DeBoer’s Auto

By Bill DeBoer on Feb 14, 2020 11:49:53 AM

Bill processing can be complicated for business owners, and many times it’s unnecessary. For example, when it comes to your fleet, how many times have you received multiple bills in the mail, even though you only brought it in for service once? Not only is this frustrating, but it’s also time-consuming in sorting everything out to ensure you’re only paying for the services and repairs provided.

Educating and Empowering Women  At Our Car Care Clinic

By Bill DeBoer on Sep 5, 2019 8:36:00 AM

Being the damsel in distress is not as glamorous as they portray it in the movies, this we know. 

You may have found yourself wishing the knight on the white horse was on his way to “save the day.” I think your mama probably set you straight on that one. ;)

Today we do have it pretty easy though. The cell phone,  AAA or roadside assistance, the GPS locator. It gives us a sense of safety and ease. I don’t want to burst your bubble here with a loud siren that screams, "you are fooling yourself." I like subtle. There are times and circumstances when you are really going to be stuck. With a little bit of knowledge you could turn a looming three hour wait and towing expense around.  Just by using the ol’ noggin’ and a little elbow grease, you can become your very own hero. 

 

Imagine if  you could turn your experience of  getting your vehicle repaired completely around.

Did you ever feel that when you are at the shop and the service guy is telling you what is needed to fix it that you slip into “blah blah I can’t hear you.” It’s like you are being spoken to in another language.

Many facilities don’t take the time to educate or to explain to their clients (male or female) what their vehicle needs and why. Being intimidated or overwhelmed can really turn a routine maintenance situation or an unexpected repair into a daunting experience. Being able to ask the right questions, and have a bit of knowledge can result in a much more pleasant encounter.  

Females spend an enormous amount of time in their vehicles. Juggling work, home, kids, sports and recreational time. It makes a lot of sense for you to have an understanding of what your vehicle needs. If your kids eyes are watery and they are sneezing, I bet you could probably narrow those symptoms down to something you recognize and treat or make the decision to go to the doctor.

About Our Women’s Auto Seminar

On October 19th, we will be hosting our Women’s Car Care Clinic. It is a great opportunity for you to come in for just a few hours and get an enormous amount of education about your vehicle. The clinic is free to our customers and starts at 2 PM, space is limited, so please reserve your seat in advance by calling 973-827-4047 or clicking here. As a special bonus, Lourdes of the Vine will be presenting a wine tasting and pairing following the seminar.

The seminar will be presented by our very own Colleen. She really runs the show over here at DeBoer's Auto. She doesn't just talk the talk (which she does eloquently) She is an absolute cracker jack in, on, above and below just about any vehicle. She’s going to teach you some very important information about your vehicle. You can expect to gain a bit more independence, time and money.

Getting your hands dirty isn’t such a bad thing

Bring in your fair tickets and get $10 off An oil change*

By Bill DeBoer on Aug 1, 2019 9:45:10 AM

We love living, working, and raising our families in Sussex County. The NJ State Fair or The Sussex County Farm and Horse Show have been part of our history since what seems like forever.  It's not just something to do, it's the event of the year for local residents and business owners. There will be vendors coming from across the country to sell their products or provide their specialty culinary treats.

The rides, ferris wheel, the games and prizes. 4H competitions, all those animals, tractor pulls, pig racing, sausage & peppers, fried oreos, funnel cake and cotton candy. How could you possibly consider not going?

We know that going to the fair can add up to be a big expense. Maintenance on your vehicle can be easily justified to put off until later. We also know that putting off maintenance on your vehicle can lead to bigger headaches and bigger tickets down the road. We'd like to give you a couple extra bucks in your pocket for your trip to the fair.  

Bring your fair tickets when you come in for your oil change August 2th -9th and we'll give you $10 off you oil change. Schedule today at 973-827-4047 Schedule Appointment Now

*Offer valid on services scheduled and completed August 2-9th, 2019 only.

Investing in Your Old Car Versus Buying a New One

By Bill DeBoer on Dec 28, 2018 9:01:00 AM

 

Invest or buy new

One of the most common customer questions we get at DeBoer’s Auto is whether it’s worth it to pay a significant price to invest in their current car, or if they should just buy a new one. The simple answer is it just depends. When your car gets a certain age, there will come a time when it needs new tires, new brakes and other high ticket items. By the time all the servicing and maintenance is done, your bill could approach $3k-$5k quickly. So is it worth it to make that investment in your current car, or sell it and buy a new one? Here’s what you need to strongly consider before making a decision.

Despite the fact half the drivers on the road are women, there’s a huge disparity in women’s car knowledge compared to men’s. We could speculate and debate about the reasons why that’s the case. Instead, we at DeBoer's Auto understood the importance of educating women about their cars and decided to do something to help change that. When it comes to any subject, the more you know, the more confident you are. On Saturday, October 27th, we presented a two-hour seminar designed to familiarize women with their cars so they’ll be more confident drivers and consumers.

How Much Does Your Vehicle Cost You Just to Drive It?

By Bill DeBoer on Dec 7, 2016 9:56:40 PM

We all know the cost of buying a vehicle has risen steadily over the years. But have you ever really considered how much it costs you to simply drive your vehicle after you’ve purchased it, regardless of whether it’s new or used? It’s not necessarily a simple calculation. There are several factors to consider. First of course, you’ll more than likely finance your vehicle. Therefore, you’ll have interest rates and taxes to take into account. You’ll also need to factor in fees and taxes, insurance, and depreciation. Lastly, one needs to consider the physical costs of operating the vehicle, like fuel, maintenance, and routine parts like tires, windshield wipers, and fluids. Sound complicated? Not terribly. Let us help you with the calculations!

Your Car - The Next Big Mobile Ad Platform

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Nov 27, 2016 12:38:48 PM

Once a far-away Jetsons-type concept, the driverless car revolution is coming sooner than many might realize, and savvy dealers will need to be prepared for the changes that it brings. From your technology to your communications and sales processes, the self-driving car revolution will touch virtually every part of your business. It’s a big change, but it’s also an exciting opportunity for dealers to find new and creative ways to connect even further with their target audience.

 



recent article in Ad Age, titled The Next Big Mobile Ad Platform -- Your Car: How Marketing Will be Impacted by Self-Driving Cars, discusses the dramatic evolution of the driving experience. With distracted-driver safety concerns gone, drivers will now be able to work, play and engage with their devices, vehicles and surroundings. Even the vernacular will change… technically they won’t even be drivers. They’ll be passengers!

Imagine if the already significant amounts of time people spend in their vehicles afforded still more opportunities to connect, communicate and consume media. From an advertising and communications perspective, that cultural and experiential shift will change the way passengers experience what is in and around their vehicle. Billboards will very likely decline and may even be replaced entirely by augmented reality on phones, mobile devices and even car windows. Opportunities will exist to “complement, not disrupt, passenger experiences with branded overlays of real-world places and geo filters that make the outside world seem a bit more magical.” Geo-local content will explode, as apps offer deals and messaging based on specific businesses and locations. Apps like Google Allo can be car specific, enabling chat and search tools.

Keeping your car running in the best condition possible all comes down to whether you keep up with the preventive maintenance. People sometimes downplay the importance of tire rotations, but it’s a task that shouldn’t be overlooked. It’s a simple process of moving the tires to different positions on your vehicle in order to prevent them from wearing out prematurely. While this seems easy, it’s best to let a car repair shop do this task to prevent any mishaps.

Save Thousands by Maintaining Your Old Vehicle

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Oct 21, 2016 4:51:00 PM

 

What’s that clunking noise coming from under your hood? Why is the check engine light on? Will it be a $200 repair this time? Or $2,000? Most of us are familiar with the frustrations of multiple repairs on an older vehicle.

Why Manufacturers Don't Want You to Service Your Transmission Every 30,000 Miles

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Sep 12, 2016 10:27:00 AM

You really like your body, right?  That vessel you move around in every day?  That body of yours is incredibly useful for getting you around and helping you in doing all of the things you like to do.  It’s made up of anywhere from 50-70% water.  That’s why health professionals will advise you to stay hydrated to remain healthy.  The other vessel you use frequently would be your vehicle.  And though your car doesn’t need the water you do, it still needs proper fluids to keep it running smoothly and happily for a long time.  Ah!  Of course!  Oil!  Yes, your car’s motor oil definitely matters, but it has a very important sidekick (Think of it as Robin to your oil’s Batman)-your transmission fluid.  And this other life’s “blood” for your vehicle matters just as much for your favorite car or truck.  How often should you check your transmission fluid?  How often should you change it?  And then the million dollar question-should you believe the schedule set forth for such checks listed in your auto’s manual, including when to service your transmission at all?
