Love is in the air here in Melbourne, Florida. We at Cassels Garage want to wish you and those you hold dear a very Happy Valentines Day. We are so grateful to share this season with all of our customers and we hope you can feel the love.
Now, we have all probably heard some Valentine’s Day horror stories or cautionary tales. We thought it might be useful to give our readers a bit of help in this department. Not that we aren’t happy to fix your busted windows and slashed tires, we just don’t want them to be caused by a bad reaction to your Valentine’s plans. Brevard County is feeling the love this February and so should you. So, we thought it might be fun to put together a list of a few tips that might help you woo your special someone this Valentine’s Day.
Keep it simple
Your Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be extravagant. Do not feel the need to go bankrupt to get your point across. Yes, presents are nice, but why not make it an experience your partner will never forget? You don’t have to spend all your money to show them you love them. You can achieve this by doing something thoughtful or unexpected. Again, it doesn’t have to be this big display. Small acts of love are usually the most memorable. Think about what your loved one’s interests are and see if you can come up with something that would make them smile, which leads us to our next tip.
Make it Personal
It doesn’t take much thought to pick out a teddy bear or a piece of jewelry. Take the time to plan something out that has some meaning. If your partner sees that you put more than just a fleeting thought into whatever you get or plan for them, they will enjoy it so much more. Think about what makes them happy or excited and plan your Valentine’s Day around that. Make your loved one feel loved and understood this year.
Get Their Car Tuned Up
There is nothing more romantic than someone going the extra mile to get your car taken care of. We know it might sound a little silly, but going out of your way to make sure your significant other’s car is all tuned up is actually super thoughtful. Saving your loved one the time and effort of rotating their car’s tires or getting an oil change is very thoughtful and will make your loved one feel very lucky. And we happen to know the perfect garage to bring your loved one’s vehicle to!
At Cassels Garage we hope that you are all feeling the love this Valentine’s season. We hope you found these tips helpful to both your 2018 Valentines Day plans and for many Valentine’s Days to come. Stop on in today to get you or your loved one’s vehicle serviced. And if it doesn’t go well, we are here to fix those busted windows and slashed tires. Cheers!
November is upon us and along with it comes some upcoming holiday travels. Here in Brevard County, we are so lucky to experience warmer temperatures while many of our fellow Americans up north suffer through bitterly cold winters. While much of the country will be experiencing their first snowfall of the year soon, we have the privilege of soaking up some sun rays. And although we don’t exactly get to experience all 4 seasons, it is still important to prepare your car for some cooler days to come.
Unfortunately, summer break is slowly coming to an end. Soon your teen drivers will be going back to their respective Brevard County schools for another engaging academic year. In previous posts, we have provided some helpful tips for beginner drivers hitting the summer roads for the first time. At Cassels Garage we find it vital to supply our customers and readers with tips for a successful driving experience. Soon your beginner driver will be driving himself or herself to school for the first time and this may come along with some new obstacles. Read below for some pointers for both parents and beginner drivers who are about to make their first solo journey to school.
For some families summer is a time of relaxation, but for others the opportunity to travel creates a more crowded schedule than the routine busyness of commuting and carpooling and sports practices.
In the middle of the last century, tinkering with the family automobile in the garage or under a shady tree was a routinely wholesome father and son activity. This was a common sight fifty years ago, but it seems rare today. Part of the reason is that sons had not developed addictions to video games yet, but another reason is that vehicle engines are more complicated now. This new reality can be frustrating to handy do-it-yourselfers who enjoy tinkering with their own equipment, but when you factor in the opportunity costs of other ways you could be spending your time and energy, fewer vehicle owners are finding it practical to do their own repairs.
School is out for summer, and now it is time for the family road trip, one of our favorite American pastimes. Here at Cassels Garage, we have seen an upswing in Brevard County residents prepping their vehicles for the road ahead. Are you one of the many folks getting ready to hit the road? If so, here are a few simple but often overlooked tips from a veteran road tripper.
First, remember that competition is good for the customer.
Try to avoid stopping for gas at an exit that has only one gas station. You and your family are likely to much prefer your experience if you choose a gas station that has several neighbors and plenty of competition. The prices will be better, the bathrooms will be cleaner, and the overall experience will be much more enjoyable.
We teach our children many very detailed things about Santa Claus. He lives in the North Pole and employs elves to make toys for the children of the world, or at least for the nice ones. On Christmas Eve, he magically visits the home of every deserving child delivering toys by sliding down the chimney, even in homes that do not have a fireplace. His magical journey is made possible by eight reindeer pulling a sleigh (and lots of toy cargo). We learned these things from our parents, but where did they and their parents learn them?
One more thing to be thankful for this season is the ease of travel in our day. Just one hundred fifty years ago, if part of your family moved to the west coast it was a grand farewell. “Have a nice life, and we will look for a letter next year if you survive the journey.” Now you can catch a plane tonight and have breakfast with your family on the other coast tomorrow morning.
