By Bill DeBoer on Aug 4, 2021 12:29:35 PM

Getting a state vehicle inspection is something everyone has to do. The inspection itself often doesn’t take a long time, but when you consider the wait time you might experience to even get an appointment, it can become burdensome. DeBoer’s Auto wanted to eliminate that burden by ensuring we have enough licensed New Jersey inspectors so you won’t have to wait as long. We’ve discussed a little bit about how that benefits you and what our new licensed inspectors had to go through to become licensed.

Importance Of Having Replacement Keys For Your Vehicle

By Bill DeBoer on Aug 3, 2021 2:10:24 PM

There are many reasons why it’s beneficial to have replacement keys for your vehicle. Losing your keys is one reason, locking them in your car is another, and simply having peace of mind that you have another set laying around can’t be overstated. Nowadays, getting a replacement key isn’t as simple as making a copy at your local hardware store. Many new vehicles use key fobs instead that have to be programmed to your vehicle, so they are a little more difficult to make. Here’s what you need to know about the importance of having replacement keys for your vehicle.

There might come a time when a single tire on your vehicle is beyond repair for some reason. While it makes the most sense to a vehicle owner to simply purchase a single tire to replace it, we are here to tell you why that’s rarely a good idea.

Vehicle manufacturers often have different regulations in place when it comes to maintaining their vehicles.

So when you get your tires on your vehicle replaced, ask the mechanic shop what they do with them afterward. Or better yet, ask for them back and find some creative ways to repurpose them. The worst thing that can happen is to throw them in the landfill, so consider these other uses for your old tires instead.

Cookie Day Pecan Sandies

Cookie Day is a tradition that my best friends family has done since she was a little girl.

By Bill DeBoer on Dec 24, 2020 11:45:00 AM

 As the year 2020 comes to a close, and we look forward to 2021, we thought it would be a great time to discuss what the future of driving looks like. Vehicles have evolved drastically over the past several years, and all indications are even more significant changes will be occurring in the future. A lot of this is because of the data vehicles can collect nowadays about a person’s driving habits, so manufacturers can build vehicles according to the needs of their customer base. This is part one of a two-part series to help you better understand the future of driving.

It connects you to many things you have to do throughout the day, and you may spend hours in your vehicle every day. While positive emotions are common when the vehicle is running smoothly, those emotions can turn negative quickly when it breaks down.

Why Using Top Tier Fuel In Your Vehicle Is Important

By Bill DeBoer on Dec 1, 2020 11:45:00 AM

In the 1990s, the Clean Air Act was put into place that regulated the mixture of the gasoline that’s put into vehicles. It set forth some bare minimum requirements for the mixture of gasoline as well as made some strong suggestions regarding the amount of detergent to use in the fuel dispensed at pumps. The problem people were experiencing in the 1990s and even today is the buildup of carbon in vehicles. The hopeful solution with this is top tier fuel. Only some gas stations in the area offer top tier fuel, but you can also search on the AAA app to find locations that offer it. Here are some of the reasons why top tier fuel is worth it.

Buying a new vehicle every few years can get expensive and make you pay a lot more than you need to for automobiles.

Grilled Chicken w Avocado and Caprese Salad

By Bill DeBoer on May 28, 2020 11:36:49 AM

Who doesn't love a fresh Caprese salad? It's a gift from your garden saying thank you for all your hard work and tender loving care you've given it all spring. The fact is that we are Jersey and WE are the real deal when it comes to Jersey tomatoes. Oh, they are just so delicious! Fresh off the vine, sliced with a little sprinkle of S&P Yummmm.

It's still a few months until the "goods" are ripe and ready to pick, but

we've been pretending since last Labor day, and have made due

with what's available, so lets use what we can until then.

Electronic Work Orders - Helping You Live Life Uninterrupted

By Tina Ormond on May 19, 2020 4:42:39 PM

Remember when your life used to be simple?

It can be difficult imagining a time when life was not as complicated as it is now. Work, family, friends, food shopping & cooking, cleaning & fixing your home, maintaining your yard, entertaining guests, community events, planning vacations, hobbies, and maybe even some exercise! And for some of you, this list is not even close to comprehensive.

With all of these important things in your life competing for your attention, thinking about your auto maintenance is, frankly, overwhelming.



So that's why here at DeBoer's Auto we like to use the Electronic Work Order.

Service Your Vehicle Anywhere In New Jersey Without Fear Of Voiding Warranty

By Bill DeBoer on May 14, 2020 11:45:00 AM

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.

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Apr 16, 2020 8:30:00 AM

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. With the availability of our loaner vehicles we can make it as seamless and as sanitary as possible.We are taking every precaution to ensure that you as well as our staff are protected.

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.

Time Is Money For Fleet Owners

By Bill DeBoer on Apr 13, 2020 6:45:00 AM

As a fleet operator, the last thing you can afford is to have your vehicles in the shop for days at a time. Not only are you spending money on the work that needs to be done to them, but you’re also not making any money. We understand this completely at DeBoer’s Auto, so we prioritize getting your fleet in and out as quickly as possible with the highest quality of workmanship. Time is money for fleet owners and here are some of the ways we can increase our speed of service.

By Bill DeBoer on Apr 9, 2020 11:44:14 AM

Owning or managing a fleet can be a stressful job. Setting a budget and sticking to it is challenging since so many unexpected things can happen to vehicles that drive up the costs of operating them. DeBoer’s Auto has worked with many fleet operators over the years and has a better understanding of their risk management strategies as a result. Not only can these strategies keep your business moving forward, but they can also minimize direct expenses and keep insurance numbers as low as possible.

Pineapple Carrot cake

By Bill DeBoer Jr on Apr 3, 2020 11:53:35 AM

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.

Keep Your Business Moving Forward With Personalized Fleet Services

By Bill DeBoer on Mar 24, 2020 11:35:05 AM

At DeBoer’s Auto, we believe all vehicles can go 250,000 miles without any issues. However, this requires regular and timely repairs and maintenance to be achieved. By doing so, you could realistically save upwards of $100,000 when you factor in the cost of paying for expensive repairs due to ignoring warning signs or even buying new vehicles every couple of years. This isn’t very time efficient nor cost-effective for fleet owners, so we offer personalized fleet services to help you keep your vehicles on a regular schedule for maintenance and repairs to ensure your business is moving forward.

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.

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.

Why Our Auto Repair Shop Loves to Educate and Empower Women (Women Seminar - 2018)

By Bill DeBoer on Oct 6, 2018 10:05:00 AM

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.
