Getting Extra Money for Your Car Upgrades
Apr 29, 2014 | Views: 113
Don’t lose hope yet, because there are a few things you can do to get extra cash for your car update. Being creative and exhausting some different options will help you get the car you always wanted while staying within your budget. Here are a few ways to find extra money for your car upgrades.
Improve your car’s function
Cosmetic improvements are always a great addition, but you might want to consider something a little more practical if you want to save money. Improving your car’s function is one way to make your investment worth the cost over time.
Think about improvements that increase the resale value of your car. These will help you save money on future repair costs and keep your car running longer. If you still want your car to stand out cosmetically, you can try combining the two ideas. An example would be adding new suspension in a bright color to pop underneath your car.
Check car forums for great used parts
Especially today with the addition of social media, there are vast amounts of good car forums in every part of the world where you can find great new ideas, parts and advice on all things cars. Do a quick search and find forums that have users located close to you and buy parts, make trades and learn some new tricks to make your car fantastic.
Social media is also a house for these types of interest groups. Search your preferred site and follow [url]forums in your niche[/url] to get news and other information about cars. You can easily then contact other members and communicate via social media to make trades and create a new base of networking.
Make changes that will lower your car insurance
As a continuation of the first point, you can actually earn the money back that you spend on your car upgrades by lowering your car insurance. Check with your provider to understand what is raising the price of your car insurance and what improvements you can make to your car to lower your monthly payments. Most options will probably involve making the car safer, like upgrading your airbags or installing a security alarm system.
Take out a small loan
If you have a big project that you want to tackle with your car and the spare change from your cup holders is not enough to make the difference, you can take out a small, easily repayable loan. Check out sites like InstaLoan.com that will actually let you use your car as collateral to get the money you need now. You might have to reduce the amount of gas you burn each month to make the payments, but your new and improved car will thank you for it.
