How To Keep Your Vehicle Looking Brand New

There are numerous preventative measures you can take to be sure your vehicle is protected throughout the seasons. These become especially useful as winter arrives and your vehicle is exposed to road salts and other harmful elements. Here are some things you can do to prevent rust and corrosion from deteriorating your vehicle.

1. Rust Proofing

Rust proofing, if done every year, can add years to your vehicle's life by preventing the start of rust from ever forming. This is especially useful to new vehicle owners, or those who've had their vehicles repainted. 
Rust Proofing | Auto Truck Depot
Rust proofing is done with a light liquid, pressurized spray that is designed to stop rust from forming. The spray is applied to inside body sections and hidden areas of your vehicle, such as joints, fold, seams and spot welds. These areas are highly vulnerable to rust formation, and rust proofing prevents it from starting.

2. Undercoating 

Another highly vulnerable area for rust formation on your vehicle is the undercarriage. The undercarriage of your vehicle is routinely exposed to gravel, salt, rocks and other road debris that will cause harsh damage if left unprotected. 
Undercoating | Auto Truck Depot
Undercoating is a rubber and petroleum based product that's applied to the undercarriage and wheel wells of your vehicle. There are 3 components that make up undercoating.
  • Latex Rubber - this lets the coating move and expand to adjust to changing temperatures
  • Plastic Resin - this increases the durability and lifespan of the product
  • Tar - provides sealed protection against moisture, salt and other debris that has a potential to cause rust. This also makes your ride smoother by creating a barrier against rocks and road noise
Undercoating will ultimately increase increase the life of your vehicle while simultaneously making your ride smoother and more comfortable. This treatment only needs to be done once, because undercoating is guaranteed for the life of your vehicle.

3. 3M Paint Protection

We've covered how to protect the hidden areas of your vehicle, such as seams, welds and the undercarriage. The next step is protecting the paint and outer surfaces of your vehicle with 3M paint protection
A clear film is carefully applied to the vehicle's surface, including challenging grill work, wheel openings, bumpers and other areas that require extra safeguard.
  • Provides a clear, virtually invisible urethane protective coating
  • Shields against stones, sand, bugs and road debris
  • Boosts vehicle trade in value
  • Lifetime guarantee for as long as you own your vehicle
The film is virtually invisible and acts as a shield against moisture and other debris to help keep your vehicle looking new for years to come.

Winterize Your Vehicle at Auto Truck Depot

Winter is a word that many of us in Canada don't like to use. This could be for a variety of reasons, whether it's an aversion to the difficult  climate that comes with it or simply the lack of warm, sunny days. But winter isn't the end, my friends! We are Canadians, and what do we do in the face of cold, snow, and adversity? We bundle up, pad our gear, and truck on nonetheless! Don't let winter slow you, or your vehicle! Bring your truck, car, or van in to Auto Truck Depot and we will get you set to ensure that the winter conditions don't inhibit or damage it. We may be a couple months away, but it's never too late to get your truck in order.
Undercoating is just one of many options that the Auto Truck Depot offers to keep your vehicle in tip top shape. Salt is great for keeping ice off the roads and preventing slippery conditions, but when you're cruising at highway speeds that salt is flung up into the underside of your vehicle.
There's a lot of important stuff down there, like your muffler, oil pan, exhaust, and countless other pieces of metal that make your vehicle run smoothly. A buildup of salt is bad enough, but when mixed with water it provides the perfect breeding ground for colonies of rust. Our professionals will apply undercoating to protect your vehicle's guts not just from rust, but also guard against impacts from rocks and other road debris to prevent cracking and other damage. Not only that, but undercoating will even dampen vibrations and travel noise! For more details, check out the link above.
It isn't just your vehicle's underbelly that is subject to rust. Until we stop building our vehicles with steel, the majority of their components can rust. On the surface, rust can be an annoyance, damaging your vehicle's paint and panels and leaving it looking old and worn. But that's not the worst scenario. Deep inside the crevices of your truck, there are hundreds upon hundreds of spot welds, joints, elbows, and other vulnerable locations. Salt and moisture build up in out of sight places is often overlooked and is nearly impossible to clean. The result? Patches of rust forming on the chassis of your vehicle, on support columns, sway bars, axles, and countless other places. If left unchecked, these rust patches can severely damage the steel and affect the structural integrity of your vehicle. Our professionals will apply Rust Check to help stop the formation of rust, and even remove some of it! Check out our services page to find out more!
We also perform the highly precise task of applying paint protection film on your vehicle. This film not only helps seal out moisture to aide rustproofing agents, it also protects your paint from rocks, bugs, and other road debris that could cause chips and peeling paint.
A dirty vehicle interior can not only be gross and annoying, it can also present health hazards. Buildup of insects, eggs, dust, dirt, and other materials that may have been dragged in by your boots and clothes can lead to colds, allergy problems, and many other inconveniences. Besides, who wants to sit for hours in a dirty car? Don't wait for spring cleaning, bring your vehicle in to Auto Truck Depot for our professional detailing, and we will ensure that when you're sitting in your car keeping warm this winter, you'll be comfortable.
We offer a wide variety of interior cleaning services and packages, including leather and fabric protection to prevent stains and make cleanup easier, and various interior and exterior detailing packages. Check them out and make sure your vehicle is ready for the upcoming winter months!

Wash Your Vehicle Monthly to Keep it Looking Great

Think back to the day you bought your vehicle. What did it look like? Chances are, if you’ve had your vehicle for a while, it doesn’t look nearly as good as the day you brought it home. Objects get older, this is true, but it doesn’t mean you have to sit back and let your automobile get old and dingy looking. There are many things you can do to keep your vehicle looking its best into old age!

For example, once every month or so, you should wash your car’s exterior thoroughly. Make sure you use non-abrasive, non-damaging cleaning products and that you wash your vehicle by hand, not through a commercial carwash!  It’s a good idea to combine your regular cleanings with another great auto care service (or two!) offered by Auto Truck Depot. If your vehicle is regularly getting wet, as is the case when you wash it often, choosing to take measures to protect it from rust is a wise idea.
Fortunately, there’s an auto care service available known as “rust check,” and it can stop rust before it even starts! When you combine this service and other services like it with regular washings, your vehicle is sure to shine!

Show Your Vehicle You Care with Auto Care Service

So many people just drive their cars around day after day, not thinking about what shape it is in or what services it might need. As long as the automobile runs, the need for services or repairs don’t cross the average person’s mind. The truth is, however, that you need to have your car serviced regularly to avoid being left in the cold. Even the very best of vehicles can have a fault or some other service need that you don’t notice until it’s too late. To truly protect your wheels, regular maintenance is an absolute necessity.

In addition to regular service needs, you may also find that you can benefit from an additional auto care service or two. One prime example is having a rust check performed. This valuable auto care service takes notice of the very first signs of rust and takes action against them. When rust is left to its own devices, it only gets worse and spreads to other parts of your vehicle, causing infinite damage over time. Having this service performed, however, can get rid of the rust that has already formed and keep further rust from happening.

In addition to having any existing rust remedied, you will want to keep your vehicle away from conditions that can cause rusting. When you wash your vehicle, always take care to dry it carefully. Also avoid parking your vehicle in areas where it can come into contact with moisture, especially when you don’t plan to use your automobile for extended periods of time. If you use these and other services from Auto Truck Depot, you should quickly find that your vehicle is in the best shape of its life.

For the Best in Calgary Auto Care Service

It’s important to frequently have auto care service performed on your vehicle. Depending upon the services you receive, you can help to make your vehicle look better, function more efficiently, and last longer. Auto Truck Depot is an expert at good auto care service and provides a wide range of options for helping your vehicle be the best that it can be. The only hard part is deciding which services you want! Fortunately, if you can’t settle on just one, you’ll be glad to find that all services are very affordably priced, making it possible to do everything you want without breaking the bank.

If you could only get one great service performed on your vehicle, we strongly recommend the window tint. Getting your windows tinted involves only a simple application process and in just a short time can add style and practicality to your vehicle! Tinted windows keep your vehicle’s interior from getting overly hot, reduce the sun’s glare when driving, and protect your vehicle’s windshield, seats, and dashboard from sun damage.

What’s more is that you  can make your tint all your own! Choose from a wide array of different tint colors and shades and from various light transmission levels. Just be sure that you are aware of the tint laws in your area, so that your little alteration won’t turn into legal trouble for you!

Once your tinting service is complete, you’ll be able to make those long trips to the beach and then return to your car afterwards without having to suffer and sweat in extreme heat. Plus, you’ll have the tools to be a better, safer driver and to protect yourself and those you care about the most.

A Rust Check is Auto Care Service You Can’t Afford to Skip Out On

It’s no secret that Auto Truck Depot offers many different types of auto care service. While some of them are fully optional, you really won’t want to skip out on using Rust Check. Sadly, many people don’t think of using anti-rusting products until it’s too late and their beautiful automobile has already been blemished by the first signs of rust. If you’re one of the lucky few with a car or truck that has no rust, then you can benefit greatly from using this excellent service.

It is a liquid oil-based product that is very light and simple to apply. It has the ability to penetrate deep into all of your vehicle’s tight cracks and crevasses, places where rusting is likely to occur and, unfortunately, to go unnoticed until it’s too late. Don’t worry, though. Once you’ve finished applying this auto care service, a thin sealant is formed to protect your vehicle.

Even if your automobile is already showing the first signs of rusting, you can still use this great product. Just be sure to remove rust blistering before you apply the product. Also, if you have a vehicle that is very prone to rusting or if you drive your vehicle frequently in moist conditions, which can cause rusting, be sure to use the coat and protect for extra protection against rust.

Whether your vehicle is new or used and no matter what its make or model, this service can help you out. Extend the life (and beauty!) of your automobile by taking just a few minutes to order and then apply this excellent product.

Rust Check is an Auto Care Service You Need

All cars need auto care service as they are all subject to damaging and just plain ugly rust, especially if they are regularly exposed to lots of rain or moisture. The good news, though, is that you can do something to protect your automobile, before it even starts showing signs of wear and tear. Thanks to the rust check auto care service offered by Auto Truck Depot, your vehicle can be protected.

All you have to do to start taking care of your auto in style is to purchase the Rust Check product. You apply it to your entire vehicle, ideally before any signs of rust have occurred. The product will then settle in your vehicle’s nooks and crannies where it will push out water and form a thin, invisible sealant. This sealant is what will protect rust from forming on your automobile. However, you may use it if surface rust already exists. Just remove the rust blistering before applying.

This awesome auto care service has been around since the 70s, and people have been trusting it ever since. Quite simply, that’s because it works. Nothing else will keep your vehicle in better shape or provide it with such protection. Plus, the rust product lasts indefinitely. There’s never any need to reapply as there is with other products. Once you’re protected, you stay protected, which means you save money without having to worry about what it’s doing to your vehicle.

So, for best results, always get products you know you can trust, and use Auto Truck Depot for all of your vehicle care needs. You will certainly be glad that you did once you see the results.
