A Guide To Buying Your Ideal Car

Nothing is as exciting as shopping for, and buying, your first car. With car dealers treating you like royalty, the fresh smell of a new car, car tech, and different colors to choose from, it is easy for one to be caught up in the moment or make the wrong decision. It is for this reason and more that you should never make a rushed decision, especially on your first purchase.  You might, however, want to research more about your ideal car, the various available options, and what you want in the car. Outlined below are some of the factors to consider when shopping for a new car.

1. It’s Long Term Value

For how long are you looking to use the car? Do you wish to use the vehicle for as long as it runs?  Do you really need a new car? These are some of the questions to ask yourself before choosing either a second-hand or a new car. Most new cars, according to AA, lose around 40% of their market value one year into use. Some cars will depreciate much faster than others; another reason you need to be concerned about your choice’s depreciation rate before the actual purchase. A little research on this will help you make a more informed decision.

2. See If It Fits Your Lifestyle

What are you looking to use the car for? Will it fit in your garage? Will everything you use daily (e.g., pushchairs) fit in the boot? Will it be capable of handling the terrain around you? These are some of the factors to consider when shopping for the ideal car. This should, at least, come before choosing the racy sleek black, yellow, or vibrant red colors of your favorite cars.  Only go for a car that will not only fit your lifestyle but also come in handy when you have to make a few lifestyle changes.  Citroen recommends making a list of must-haves before walking into a dealer’s shop. Be sure to create a column of what is essential, and the added extras you would be happy with according to your budget.

3. Consider Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) As An Additional Feature

Autonomous emergency braking is an advanced feature that helps monitor various traffic conditions and brakes the car accordingly, especially if the driver doesn’t on time. This is especially useful and crucial in emergencies that could lead to crashes. According to research conducted by Thatcham, AEB systems have helped reduce real-world rear-end collisions by approximately 38%, a reason they recommend ensuring your car is at least equipped with one. The AEB feature doesn’t, however, come standard in most vehicles; hence worth adding to your must-have features.

4. Consider Your Payment Options

Always have your car finance options in check before walking into a dealer’s shop. Consider all available options, and choose the one that suits you best. The dealer might also outline other payment options you could be interested as well.

5. Stick To Your Budget

The rule of thumb when shopping for a car is to compare prices from various dealers, both online and offline.  Check with every car dealer you can think of to get an idea of how much the car costs. Some dealers will, of course, be more affordable than others.  Nevertheless, having an idea of the lowest price you can get the car for, gives you a better chance of negotiating and getting a better deal. Parkers and What Car are a perfect example of examples you can compare various car deals.

Do not let the dealer or salesperson talk you into paying more than you had budgeted for. State your final price and stand by it. Only sign the papers after you are in agreement, not before.

6. Pick The Best Time To Buy

As weird as it may sound, the time you choose to buy the car can have a significant impact on how much you have to pay in the long run. According to Auto Trader, most dealers will have lots of stock to shift between September and March, and just after a new number plate format has been introduced.  August and February can also be an excellent time to buy a car. This is because most dealers will be looking to clear old stock.  You might also want to visit the showroom during the weekday and avoid weekends at all costs. You are better placed to get a better deal on Friday than you would during the weekends. This is because the dealer is eager to hit their weekly target.

Quad Bike – ATV Security

Datatag And iTrack

Data tag and data tool have been around in the motorcycle industry for many years and with great success returning 100’s of machines back to their rightful owners. But just because the advertised in the motorcycle sector it doesn’t mean that the system will not work on Quad Bikes or ATV’s for that matter. Any item of value can be datataged which means that even Buggies and Minimotos could be tagged too.

Datatag were started in the 1990’s with the thought of making a reduction in theft and placing the bias back into the owners hands. The system was designed with a small transmitter that would be buried onto a machine and then could be picked up if scanned by someone who had a receiver. These receivers were only available to police forces. So should the police have cause to scan a vehicle like a motorcycle or agricultural machinery then even if the identification on the machine had been removed then the transmitter/transponder would send the correct signal back to the receiver confirming the identity of the item.

Only recently a piece of plant and machinery that was hired from an A-Plant Hire Centre in the UK. The skid-steer was stolen from the midlands and quickly shipped from the UK to Gibraltar and then carried across the Mediterranean Sea and down through the Suez Canal to Oman where it was unloaded and trucked into Sharjah, in the UAE.

UK police worked tirelessly with international authorities making sure that the vehicle was kept under surveillance until they arrived. The men that were caught in possession of the vehicle were quickly arrested and charged with handling stolen goods. The datatag system was used to give clarification to the police that the item was in fact the one stolen from the uk.

The data-tag system can be placed on any expensive item and is recommended by most leading insurance companies in the UK for Plant and Machinery as well as Motorcycles and Quad Bikes. There is a substantial discount package available to people who have Datatag installed on to their machines and this is then transferred to a new owner should the vehicle ever been sold.

Unfortunately these systems are not like some of the conventional tracking devices that can be moved from one vehicle to another and have complete permanent fixture to the vehicle once installed.

i-Track is a PGS based system which again is fitted by Datatool UK. The system much like any other in it’s class will show up an a screen if you ever need to find your machine if it has been stolen. As well as this it uses the mobile GSM Global Network via the masting system. This allows iTrack to constantly confirm the whereabouts of the machine as a secondary confirmation.

Below you will find some of the key areas that Datatag have insisted are big selling points with their system and, knowing the GPS market I would agree that everything seems to be covered.

  • Probably the smallest and most compact commercial tracking system available increasing options for covert fitment.
  • Rechargeable internal battery back up in case the main power supply is disconnected i.e. the vehicle battery.
  • iTrack will advise if vehicle battery or internal battery level is running low keeping your vehicle covered at all times.
  • The most advanced movement detection system immediately alerts Datatag in case of unauthorised movement.
  • Automatically sets a “Geographical Fence” or “Invisible Security Fence” around the vehicle and raises an alarm if the vehicle or property leaves this secure area without consent or permission.
  • Lower battery drain than any other system currently on the market.
  • Mud and waterproof – capable of working in the harshest of conditions means it’s ideal for Quads, Agri, MX Bikes, ATV’s and Buggies.
  • iTrack is future proof – It can be upgraded to the latest UK Thatcham Category 5 status using the Keyless “Smartcard” operating system.

And looking at all of those Unique Selling Points I’m sure you would feel pretty confident that should your Quad Bike or ATV ever go missing, that you would be paired up again very soon.

Why Your Domain Name is Critical to Online Success

The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names…Chinese Proverb

How do you choose a good domain name? Why should you fuss and bother so much over the agonizing process? Is it really that important to “get it right?”  Every day I hear business owners pondering this question. Over and over the mantra is “I need a good domain name but all the good ones are taken!”

Choosing a domain name that captures your business brand, is optimized for local search, and is scalable for your growing and rapidly changing business needs can seem overwhelming. Does it have to be that difficult a process for such an important task? NO! As a matter of fact, it is a lot easier than you think if you follow a few common sense tricks and traits and implement a little creativity in the process.

Basically, selecting a domain name requires employing the following critera:

·         Must be easy to spell in order to avoid confusion

·         Easy to pronounce/read

·         Free from .info or .biz TLD’s that are difficult to remember

·         Uses no hypens, underlines or dots between words and letters

·         Short so it is easy to remember

·         Does not have words that end with one letter that is also the first letter of the next word (ie: firsttimeecommerce.com)

·         Is easily brandable

If you have any friends who are really good at games like Scrabble or Boggle or are champion crossword puzzle solvers, it can be a useful exercise to have them help you with the naming conventions for your site.  Keep in mind, when you create your domain name for your website you are creating the one thing that has the single most long-term impact on your eventual site traffic. Choose well! Whatever name you choose will reside not only on the web but on your business cards, letterhead, invoices, and any other PR material you decide to generate. It must be easy to give verbally over the phone and in conversation so make sure it is easy to spell and say intelligibly. Select a domain name that makes sense and is easy to remember.

In the days of strictly brick and mortar businesses naming your company relied heavily on originality. You had to make sure your business’ name was nothing like your competitor’s so your business stood apart. It is not that much different today! Now you want to make sure your domain name communicates who and what you are all about, is ‘brandable,’ and works as a solid email address too. That way you are marketing even when you send out emails.

According to Ries and Trout in their books, “Positioning: The Battle of Your Mind” and “The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing,” domain name selection is a form of positioning. It is often the first point of contact that consumers have with you and your marketing messages. It is subliminally critical, according to Ries, to make a positive first contact with your target audience. Your name must convey specific information that is categorized from the consumer perspective.  For example, when people look for car repair shops do they look under the word “auto” or “automotive”? Do they look for a “dental” or “dentist”? Think like a consumer and how they will search for your business and how will they remember your name again and again when you select your domain name.

How do you make your name easily located, remembered, and differentiated from the hundreds of thousands of others on the Internet? Differentiation is important but the real goal is to attract the greatest number of potential customers to your site. By incorporating the right balance of keywords, geo-targeting, and branding you can potentially dominate your market with just a little effort.  

Keywords are the trigger words that the local search engines use in combination with a few other SEO tricks to assign your site a “position” in web directory listings. Keywords are similar to categories in that they are the words and phrases used by consumers who are seeking information on the Internet. Geo-targeting is a physical location associated with your business. The search engines know where you are located and through the consumer’s IP address he/she is using to search a directory on the internet the internet knows where they are located geographically.  Many searches on Google will generate a search result that has a map with local listings followed by “normal” search engine listings related to the search phrases used. The businesses that show in the map list all have geographical relevance to the search. These things all become linked to the naming conventions you employ when creating your domain name. For example, if you have a The Pizza Palace in Seattle and you sell gourmet pizzas you should seriously consider selecting a domain name that incorporates keywords, geo-target and branding elements: GourmetPizzaPalaceSeattle.com or Seattlegourmetpizzapalace.com

The name is somewhat alliterative (Pizza Palace) so it is easy to remember, has a geo-target (Seattle), and keywords (Seattle, gourmet pizza, pizza). It is also not too long and easy to read. It is critical to try and strike a balance when trying to incorporate all three of these elements in selecting a domain name. As long as it is catchy and easy to remember and strikes that balance you can’t help but have a winner on your hands. The right domain name is worth its weight in gold.

Now hurry out there and buy your domain name before someone else does!

Drivers License Numbers – How to Search for a Person with a Drivers License Number

Sometimes you may have to find someone who has, for whatever reason, made it hard to find them. It may be that they simply moved on without a forwarding address, but it also may be that they are deliberately hiding. It does not matter – hard to find is hard to find.

The reason you are searching for someone does not matter. You may want to search for a person simply to get in touch with an old friend. But you may also be searching because, for example, they owe you money or you need their help in a legal matter. Or you may be searching because you are considering hiring someone who needs to have a clean driving record.

The reasons you have their license number can vary as well. You may have their driver’s license number because they had to provide you with a copy in order to, say, cash a check or sign a lease or apply for a job.

Regardless of why you have it or why you are looking for them, if you have someone’s driver’s license number, finding them or information about them can become much easier, although not necessarily free to do.

While searching for people when you have other details can often be as simply as typing the information into your favorite search engine, the likelihood this will work with a drivers license number is practically nonexistent.

If you are checking someone’s records for employment purposes, you will need to access Registry of Motor Vehicle records. You can request someone’s driving record and other related information yourself, or you can use a third-party service. You also need the permission of the person who’s driving record you are requesting. You can make your request in writing or in person from any DMV office or examination station.

On the other hand, if you are trying to find someone and do not have their permission, you will likely need to use the service of a private detective or specialized third-party service as such records are not made public to just anyone without permission. There are exceptions to the permission requirement, such as for use in court proceedings, but using a third-party (be it a detective, attorney, etc.) will likely be worth the money.

Pros and Cons of Installing a Cold Air Intake On Your Truck

Increasing the performance and power of your truck does not necessitate installing a new motor or transmission, though those can definitely be options. One easy to install option that is gaining popularity with the truck crowd is that of the cold air intake. Cold air intakes have long been a staple of racing and street racing cars, but they can just as easily apply to your truck. Why would you install a cold air intake on your truck? Let’s look at how they work, first.

A cold air intake system takes the place of your OEM air filter and intake system. Ordinarily, you will need to remove the original breather box, as well as the tubing that leads to the engine. By installing a cold air intake, you can add horsepower to your truck. This happens because a cold air intake brings in cooler air to your engine. Cool air is much more dense than warm air. This means that your engine can burn fuel much more efficiently, increasing your available horsepower. While the gain will not be incredible, it will be noticeable.

The cold air intake system is usually routed in a similar fashion as your OEM system, at the engine. As it travels out from there, though, it will terminate at a different location. This is usually low down the engine, behind the headlights, or even lower down. The object is to get the intake as far from the heat of your engine as possible. This is the only way to get air that is cold enough to do the job right.

What else does a cold air intake do for your vehicle? It can increase fuel mileage under certain conditions, though this is not why most people install them on their vehicles. The primary reason, of course, is to add power in the form of speed and torque. Some of the more popular brands are K&N and Volant. Understand, also, that adding a cold air intake to your truck will change the way your truck sounds. While it won’t sound like a street racer, it will definitely sound different.

Now, let’s look at some of the drawbacks to adding a cold air intake.

First, there is the expense. While they are relatively inexpensive when compared to other truck accessories and performance enhancers, they do represent at least a modest investment. You must also modify your vehicle; many times by yourself. Some dealerships will not install these devices on trucks, while others will charge considerable labor fees.

The single largest drawback, though, comes in the form of water. This threat is much more prevalent in shorter vehicles, such as passenger cars, but it is present for trucks as well. The placement of the air filter makes is possible for water to splash up from the road or mud hole into the air filter. From there, it is sucked along the intake tube until it gets to your engine. Once there, it wreaks havoc. Granted, it takes more than a few drops of water to disable your engine, but the threat is present and must be considered when debating adding one of these systems to your truck.

That said, there are few drawbacks to this, especially in exchange for the additional horsepower that you will enjoy. You can find a number of quality systems that will work well in this situation, though K&N has been a trusted name for years. Their filters are designed to last for a lifetime, with only cleaning required to continue using the filter.

Home Based Franchises – A Whole World of Opportunities For Your Own Business

If you’re looking for a way to start a business out of your own house but aren’t sure what you could do to become an entrepreneur, you may want to consider some home based franchise opportunities. These are ways for you to enter into a ready made operation with less risk and more profit potential if you’re interested in working from home.

Before you make a decision to jump into this option, you’ll want to learn a little bit more about what’s available for you. However, we should start at the beginning.

What is a Franchise?

Before you can decide if his is how you want to start working from home, you need to understand what a franchise is. Most of us have spent money at a franchise before. If you’ve ever bought a Happy Meal or a Subway Sub then you’ve been to a franchise operation.

Although these are not home based franchise opportunities, they are examples of franchises that have been operating for a long time and doing quite well. They are proof that franchises can be big money makers not just for the head of the company but for the individual owners of the restaurants.

How Does A Franchise Work?

Basically, here’s how a franchise starts. Company A opens its doors in one location. The company has a great service or product, as well as an effective marketing plan, which makes it successful at that location.

Maybe the owners of Company A decide to add a few more locations in their community and those also do well. It’s clear that people in other parts of the country would also be interested in what Company A is selling but they don’t want to be responsible for all of the locations in all parts of the country.

Instead, they make a deal with Person B who is looking for a way to start a business but aren’t sure what to sell. They create a partnership. Person B agrees to open up a location for Company A. In exchange, Company A supplies the business and marketing plans, as well as the product or service being sold.

Of course, Company A doesn’t do all this for free out of the kindness of their heart. Person A is usually charged some upfront fees for the service (this would vary from company to company) and must give a portion of their profits back to Company A regularly.

Of course, the benefits are clear. Person B is going to get a great deal with a ready-made company that could literally start making profits immediately. Company A gets a stream of income and is able to spread their company around the country easily. It’s a win-win deal for everyone involved.

Working from Home Franchise Options

A work from home franchise is essentially still a business, but one that you can run from your home based office or one that does not require investment in commercial premises. Although if the venture really takes off, then sometimes renting an office can be an option.

If you’re interested in starting a franchise from your home, you may be surprised at how many different choices are available. Below are a few ideas that are worth considering.

Local Directories and Magazines

These are essentially either a written publication or an on-line directory. Revenue is generated from these types of franchise predominantly from advertising.

It is entirely possible to start your own on-line directory but unless you are prepared to do a significant amount of software configuration it is probably best to purchase a franchise for this so you can concentrate on income generation as opposed to development

Education and Learning Franchises.

Ideal if you are keen on education. With these typically you will be selling online courses for either children or adults or even both. Overheads are low but you will need to be happy contacting cold customers or concentrating on generating referrals.

Training, marketing material and brand name normally form part of this home based franchise opportunity from the likes of ComputerXplorers for example.

Cleaning Franchises.

There is a whole host of home based opportunities in this market across a broad spectrum of industries.

This could range from home and office cleaning opportunities for example Merry Maids. The key here is to realize that you won’t be doing the cleaning but would be developing and winning cleaning contracts and then recruiting employees to fulfil the contracts. Your income is the difference between the contract rate per hour or job and the employee rate.

Automotive Franchises.

Another huge market for the home based entrepreneur is the automotive field. Franchises here will require a certain amount of mobility so would not be suitable for a stay at home mom for example unless they were employing a managerial strategy and outsourcing or recruiting.

Typically automotive franchises could include bumper repair, dent removal, mobile valeting and windscreen replacement to name but a few.

The list of home based franchise opportunities is almost endless and if you are a true entrepreneur there is no reason why you cannot find one that is suitable for almost anyone if you want you own business bad enough

Just make sure you do your research and know what you’re getting involved in before you make the commitment. Then you’re going to be on your way to becoming a successful working from home entrepreneur.
