Don’t recycle? You should. Here’s why
I admit, I might be a little late to the party, but I had a pretty great experience last week when I bought my new car. Well, my used car that’s new to me.
My old car was on its last legs and I knew it wouldn’t pass inspection without having to have a lot of work done on it. I figured now was as good a time as any. I bought that car used, too, from a great dealership that unfortunately closed about 2 years later. It wasn’t because of any bad business or anything, they had a great reputation in town. I think they retired and moved somewhere tropical.
Anyway, because one of the very best used car dealerships Ottawa had to offer was no longer an option, I didn’t know where to go. No one really knew what to recommend, either. There had to be a place for the best used cars Ottawa had to offer were ending up after the popular dealership closed, but no one knew where it was. Or at least no one was telling.
I decided I was on a mission. I was going to find the next best used car dealership and tell everyone about what I discovered. It took a lot of time, but I visited as many as I could fit into a month. I looked at so much inventory and talked to so many salespeople that I actually had to develop a way to chart everything to remember.
Of course, the goal was to buy a car. That was why I started looking into this in the first place. So, once I narrowed it down to the top 3 contenders, I got a little more serious. I asked questions about financing, warranties, and inspections. One of the 3 wasn’t willing to provide the warranty I wanted so I eliminated them.
When I got it down to the last 2, I’ll be honest. They were so great that I only chose the one I did because I loved the car so much. I guess you could say that they had better inventory, which would put them over the top.
I told all my friends about my experiment and am trying to get some independent confirmation. Unfortunately, no one is willing to go visit used car dealerships just to collect information like I was, so everyone will just have to take my word for it.
Next thing I did was look for who has the cheapest auto insurance. Which is a lot harder than it sounds. After a bit of searching I found a great website: http://verycheapcarinsurancenodeposit.net and decided to buy some very cheap car insurance no deposit. It’s not the best coverage that’s for sure, but it is the cheapest auto insurance you can buy.
I recently purchased a second car and am currently searching for insurance with reasonable rates. It will serve as a work vehicle when I start my summer job as a delivery driver and will need to insure it soon. It was a cash purchase but the vehicle is dependable, and I want to make sure the insurance is dependable as well. A few people have told me to just purchase cheap car insurance no deposit. I must admit the idea is very tempting but can I really trust this option?
I know this is an extremely popular among motorist but I also need to know that I can rely on it in the event of an accident or damage to my vehicle. Most people say that it is extremely reliable and offers great coverage for vehicles. My sister purchased some a few months ago and had a fender bender last week. She says that filing the claim was easy to do and the company responded in record time. What more could you ask for, right? I think I’m overthinking the entire process and should break down and call around for rates. Although I won’t be making a deposit, I still expect great coverage with affordable rates.
After weeks of putting it off, I finally broke down and called around today. I am happy to say that my second car is now fully insured. Did I mention the rates are cheap and there was no deposit required? The agent that assisted me took the time to explain every detail of my new policy and I may consider switching my other vehicle over to this company also. There are quite a few incentives offered by the company and not to mention, I get extremely reduced rates for insuring multiple vehicles. I will think about this a little more but for now, it’s time to prepare for my new gig. Also I found my no deposit insurance here: http://www.verycheapcarinsurancenodeposit.com/. In case you’re wondering.
I will begin making deliveries in a week and can’t wait to see how much I earn the first month. The best news is that I’m not spending a large portion of my earnings on insurance for the vehicle. I have already earned the money back that I used to invest in the new vehicle. My level of excitement is elevated to above normal at this point and I am excited to see how much money I’ve saved by the end of summer.

Last week I survived a storm. Not a big deal? Well, humour me. In England, the most extreme weather we’re accustomed to is when wind and rain combine to turn umbrellas far and wide inside out. So an actual storm with a name was a pretty big deal. The storm was called Doris. Who names these things? And why do they choose names that aren’t acceptable to humans under the age of 89?
I mean as far as global extreme weather goes storm Doris was as gentle in nature as the kind 89-year-old she was named after. But someone did die after being hit on the head with a Starbucks roof tile. That’s not meant to be funny by the way, it’s just an actual fact. So it was, like kind of bad. Definitely, the worst weather England has seen in recent history.
Why am I telling you this? Because storm Doris has forced me into financial disrepute!
I casually made my way home from work last Thursday only to find that my entire garden fence had been ripped from the ground and broken in half. No man has the strength to cause that much damage for no apparent reason. It must have been Doris.
Not the worst thing to happen. But I can’t afford a new fence, and the remains are unsalvageable.
That means I’m going to have to head to a loan company near me to borrow money with an extortionate rate of interest. Just so that my dog doesn’t run wild across both of my neighbours landscaping jobs. Making me even more unpopular than that time I accidentally drove a quad bike through the fence and halfway across Mr Next Doors prize blooms.
I guess I’ll just wave goodbye to my passable credit rating now then.
Want to help the environment? Get a new car. Seriously. If you’re driving an old clunker you’re emitting much more pollution than you need to.
I’m always trying to convince people to scrap their old cars. The number #1 complaint they have is about paying for car insurance.
They think that they’ll have to pay so much more to get coverage.
But that’s wrong! Car insurance on a new car can be cheap. I’ve written a little guide on how to find cheap car insurance. Don’t let insurance be the reason you’re destroying the environment….
#1 Compare as many companies as possible. Automated tools exist so you don’t have to do this manually by calling in companies. Here’s one tool I recommend: http://www.autoinsurancemonkey.com/car-insurance-near-me/
#2 Ask for a discounts. Every insurance company offers some discounts. Many you’ve never heard of. After your done comparing online rates with the tool above, call in and ask discounts. You can get discounts because of you’re employee, possible clubs your in, you church even. There’s a ton of ways to get a discount!
#3 Get less coverage. A lot of people go overboard and buy full coverage auto insurance. For most people this makes no sense. Buy coverage you need. Don’t pay extra for nothing.
#4 Don’t buy a gas guzzling car. Usually you’ll end up paying more for insurance and hurting the environment! If possible, but an electric car. Insurance for electric cars is much cheaper. So in the long run even if the car is more expensive you’ll save money!
That’s it. Finding cheap car insurance is easy. Most people don’t bother to compare even 2-3 companies, or even ask for discounts. That’s why they overpay and complain. Always switch companies every 2-3 years. You’ll save way more money. Loyalty to one company does NOT PAY.
Remember, the environment is number #1!
