What is Undercoating?




What is Undercoating?

Having grown up in Vermont spending a lot of time at my father's auto body shop in Barre, Vermont (the predecessor to Ayer Auto, Inc.), I quickly learned two things: 1) the damage that New England winters cause to vehicles; and 2) the importance of applying high quality undercoating products to one's vehicle.  As vehicle purchases are often the largest expenditure consumers make, it is financially wise to protect that investment by taking the time to have a highly trained and experienced technician, properly and fully undercoat your vehicle.  This is done with the goal of combating the rust and corrosion that so quickly destroys vehicles.  For my friends in warm weather states, undercoating is equally effective and worth considering, as it provides protection to the vehicle from all types of moisture, dirt, sand, and debris, encountered both on and off road.
                                                                              

Undercoating is sometimes confused with rustproofing.  Undercoating is focused on the underside and chassis of a vehicle, while rustproofing focuses on spraying protective wax to areas of the vehicle that are vulnerable to chipping and the accumulation of moisture that can lead to rust and corrosion.  Depending upon one's particular driving pattern and situation, undercoating and rustproofing often go hand in hand and are both highly recommended.  

At Ayer Auto Body, we are proud to be one of only four authorized shops in the state to utilize the high quality products from Noxudol.  I encourage everyone to call our knowledgeable staff and learn how we can help you protect your vehicle and keep it running for many years to come, no matter what Mother Nature may bring.  When you buy your next vehicle at Ayer Auto Sales, we can also conveniently arrange to undercoat your pre-owned vehicle before you take it home.

How to Buy a Used Car



How to Buy a Used Car

 

Buying a car can be both an exciting and frustrating experience.  In order to guarantee success and avoid frustration, first, be sure to set your budget.  Then do some research using any of the great online resources that you can access free of charge.  When reviewing these resources, be sure to check reliability ratings and ownership costs.  Next, do a search for your targeted car by make and model, within a set mileage radius of your home and/or place of business.  During this time, you will be able to determine a fair market price, select options, as well as consider mileage and condition level.  Don’t forget to check the vehicle history report.


Now that you’ve completed your research, you’re ready to contact the seller, arrange a test drive, and in-person inspection.  Once you’ve completed all of these steps and narrowed down your used car search, all that is left is to negotiate the best price, arrange for any necessary financing, complete the required paperwork, and arrange for insurance coverage and registration plates.  


 At Ayer Auto Sales, our experienced professionals aim to take all the stress and legwork out of your car buying experience.  Our vehicles are thoroughly checked for quality and condition and are serviced by our certified technicians at Ayer Auto Service and Ayer Auto Body before being placed onto the sales lot.  Ayer Auto Sales prides itself on doing all the homework for our growing base of loyal customers.  We provide every customer with vehicle history reports and offer several options for financing, trade-ins, warranties, and more.  You can find us online on our website, Facebook, and YouTube page where we post 360-degree videos of our vehicle inventory several days per week.
