Cities are packed, jammed, polluted, and tough to move around in. It doesn’t matter whether you live there, work there, or just visit. Getting around the city can be hard work, uncomfortable, and even thoroughly unpleasant. But what turns you off about the city might not bother the guy sat next to you. Perhaps you don’t like the bus because the noise of shrieking kids on the school run gives you a headache? Or maybe you just don’t like the smell of the subway? Does the mode of transport you choose say anything about your personality or outlook on life though?
There is nothing so frustrating as having your lawnmower break down during that last patch of grass in the front yard. You know what needs to be fixed, and only if you could find the Phillips screwdriver that you thought was sitting on top of your work bench. Perhaps your wife’s car is burning more oil than normal and you wanted to add an extra bottle of oil to her car before she left for work, but couldn’t find where you had left the extra gallons of oil that you had used to fix your own car.

If you’re hitting the road with your family on your next holiday, you might already be dreading it, and we honestly wouldn’t blame you. There’s a lot that can go wrong on a family road trip. For instance, the car could break down and then you could be stranded on the side of the road with one or two disgruntled little angels in the back seat. Then, of course, there’s the endless ‘are we there yet’ if they are bored or uncomfortable. The good news is that there are a few ways to make road trips with the family a lot easier and we can show you how.
Car ownership is a real pricey deal. When you’re buying a car, you’re spending a lot of money to own it. When you’re selling a car, you are going to spend cash getting the car into a good condition so it can be sold for the highest price possible. When you own a car, you’ve got to spend money on gas and ensure your car is in a road legal condition. As well as this, when you’re owning a car you need to do maintenance to get the most out of the car. Guess what? This costs money.
