Completing easy repairs for your car is a great way to bump it up into the next price range. A mechanic won’t tell you this but there are certain repairs that anyone can do, even beginners.
If you can get the parts for cheap and do the work yourself you won’t have to settle for a low offer on your car. Instead, you’ll make a better profit margin, and have extra time to spare as well.
On the other hand, be sure to only attempt the repairs if you are willing to put in the effort to understand the process. Otherwise, you won’t get as much money. Here are our recommended repairs that have the best return on investment.
1.Replace the Battery
Without a working battery you won’t be able to get your car to turn on consistently. At a repair shop you can expect to pay over a hundred dollars to replace it. This cost includes labor, supplies and time.
If you’re going to do it yourself, however, all you have to do is pay for the cost of the battery. With Western Auto Wrecking you can find some of the best prices on the market, which improves your resell value even more.
Replacing the battery is arguable one of the easiest replacement projects. The only tools you’ll need are a couple of wrenches.
2.Change the Air Filter
Air filters are even less expensive and easier than batteries are. You can get one new for as little as $20. Not only is it simple but it’s important for the health of those in the car as well.
This is one service that repair shops love to mark up, so learning to do it yourself will save you a lot of money. All you need to do is unscrew the air filter panel, take out the old filter and add the new one. It really is that simple.
3.Replace the Brake Pads
Nothing frightens potential buyers more than weird sounds that doesn’t belong. When your brake pads start to wear down they can add to this problem. Have ever noticed an out-of-place squeaking noise when braking on a cold day?
This is a significant sign that your brake pads need to be replaced. This repair is a little more difficult than air filters and battery replacements. However, the parts to complete it cost less than $50, so you can make a good investment off it.
