Car repair costs can fluctuate anywhere from a few dollars to a few thousand. Unfortunately, car repair costs depend on the part that has broken.

So you’re finally looking into buying a car and you’re kind of really freaking out because you need to make some big decisions ASAP but you don’t know what to do. In retrospect, you probably should have replaced your old car after the emergency alarm system began experimenting with new sounds every time you slammed the door just a little too hard. There’s also the issue of the trunk latch not working and currently being taped shut with duct tape. Oh, and the air conditioning stopped working last week just in time for summer, but it’s kind of alright because two windows are permanently stuck open…

But the truth is, you’re strapped for cash right now and you’ve accepted that you probably always will be. Generally you’ve decided that eating actual food is more important than having an air conditioned car but t

So why don’t more people use them? Here are five reasons to start:

Cheap car shipping

If you’ve got a vehicle to move, doesn’t have to be a load on your mind. Auto shipping is a cost effective, safe, and convenient option for your RV transport, motorcycling hauling, car moving, or boat transport needs. Of course, auto shipping is an expense, but hiring professional auto shipping is much less costly than other methods of vehicle transport.
One option for vehicle transport is to simply use the vehicle itself, but that is neither a cost efficient nor a convenient option. Most people who choose auto shipping do so because they bought a new car online. Having the car shipped then removes the need to put what might be many miles on the new car. This is true for motorcycles and recreational vehi

Google may change the future of driving and automobiles forever. The leading internet company, previously developing self-driving cars with the option for a human driver to take over in the event of an emergency, is changing gears (no pun intended). Google’s latest automated vehicles do not even have a driver’s seat. In fact, there is no steering wheel, gas pedal, or brake. What is Google trying to accomplish, and how will it impact the future of transportation?

Google Releases Self-Driving Vehicles Without Brakes, Gas Pedals, Or Steering Wheels

Car ownership can rank among the most demanding freedoms one can take on for some. This is especially true for owners of Audi vehicles, since it is such a unique brand. It doesn’t have to be complicated though; here are some auto maintenance tips for Audi owners to help keep your car on the road, out of the car repair shop, and to keep your wits away from their end:

1. Change and Top Off All the Fluids Regularly

Any vehicle only runs because of the fluids in it, whether it be gasoline, radiator fluid, oil, or transmission fluid. Some fluids are absolutely essential for the car to even turn on. Without gasoline, for example, your engine won’t be able to emulate even one horse’s power. Some fluids aren’t quite so obvious. You

It’s that time of year again: College graduates are moving out of their dorms, finding new jobs, and many families are moving during the summer months in order to get their kids into school by the start of fall. But what does all this mean? Transporting issues. Sure, you’ve got the moving van, but what about the car? Here are a few reasons why auto transport companies are your best bet for an easy relocation from point A to point B.

What is Vehicle Hauling?
Vehicle shipping is normally used when people are faced with the choice of driving their car, or taking a plane and hiring someone else (or, hello family relatives!) to move their car.
