Treat Your Partner to a Sweet Ride with Car-Related Valentine’s Day Surprises

One of the most exciting parts about Valentine’s Day is finding new and surprising ways to show your partner how much you care. Instead of leaving a note on the bed or sending flowers to their workplace, make your love known in an unexpected location—their car! There are lots of ways to hide Valentine’s Day surprises in a car or truck. Here are some of our favorites.

 

Leave a Note

Leave a short and sweet love letter on your partner’s dashboard, windshield, or steering wheel. You could also write the things you love about your partner on post-it notes and stick them all over the inside of their car.

 

Give a Clean Start

Does your partner tend let his or her vehicle get a little messy? Surprise them by having their car cleaned inside and out. For an added sweet touch, purchase a car vase and leave some flowers inside.

 

Heart-felt Decorations

Make sure your partner takes your love with them on the road by leaving sweet and thoughtful decorations he or she will love. Pick out a decorative steering wheel cover or a cute air freshener that will make your partner think of you. Anything you can do to make your partner feel loved and cherished during their daily commute is a gift they will never forget.

Why It’s Better to Service Your Vehicle at a Dealership

Your car is one of your most important assets. It allows you to travel to work, take your kids where they need to go, see friends, get food, and all other kinds of important life activities. Unfortunately, many people do not treat their cars as they should. Here is why you should service your car at a dealership.

Quality

Dealership mechanics are backed by major car companies, which means the car companies put their word behind their service technicians. Local mechanics range from very good to very bad, but you know exactly what you’re getting when you take it to a dealership.

Better Tools

As they are backed by major corporations, dealerships often have the latest and most effective tools for their mechanics to use. Local garages can’t always afford access to these tools right away.

More Organization

Dealership garages are generally much cleaner and more organized than local garages, which leads to efficiency and less problems. There are also usually nicer waiting areas for customers at dealerships to allow you to wait in comfort.

While it’s always good to support locally owned business, you simply don’t always know what you’re getting at a local mechanic. When you’re talking about your car, one of your most important investments, it’s often better to go with the sure thing.
