It has been a Slow Month so lets get Gutter Cleaning

Well, car enthusiasts it has been a slow month. I hope you have all had a good Christmas. I did, in fact I still feel bloated now. I have avoid buying and selling cars for a while, hence the low post counts recently.

Instead I have been focusing my attentions on a bit of DIY. Firstly my gutters were a right mess. I borrowed a ladder from my neighbour (thanks Chris) and got up there to try and fix it.

Not a good idea! I was completely unprepared and it was just plain unsafe. So I asked around for a good company that does gutter cleaning in Altrincham. I soon got a couple of recommendations and chose a company that charged me a fair price and did a great job. They also do roof cleaning to a high standard too.

I kept Chris's ladder and went up to inspect the work afterwards and it was perfect. There really is no point in trying this sort of thing on your own.

Preparing your car to sell

Selling a car sounds simple doesn't it? But there are some things you need to keep in mind, such as how to get the best price, the rules and regulations and negotiating. These tips may help you to sell your car quicker and for a higher price.

When someone wants to sell his car, he needs to have the title. He will also need to decide if he is going to keep the plates he has or get new ones. He may choose to have the person buying the car transfer the plates. If he has a vanity plate, he will probably decide to keep the plate and transfer it to his next vehicle.

When you decide to sell your car through a private deal, you need to make all the arrangements with the newspapers, the online sites, and any place else you want to advertise your car. The owner may also choose to put up the venerable for sale sign in the car window. The for sale sign is the least effective method, but it does occasionally attract the attention of passersby.
