Educating and Empowering Women  At Our Car Care Clinic

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. 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

Investing in Your Old Car Versus Buying a New One

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. 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.

Your Car’s Winter Survival Guide

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. on Dec 21, 2018 9:34:00 AM

Driving during a winter event is never fun.
