Benefits of Oil Change

Benefits of Having Your Oil & Filter Changed at a Dealership in Washington, NC

Getting your oil changed regularly is a crucial part of maintaining your vehicle. If you have a little mechanical know-how, you may think changing your own oil is a good way to save money. But actually, it can be cheaper to have your oil and filter changed by an expert technician. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of letting the professionals do your maintenance.

You Don't Have to Clean Up

You can't change your mind once you remove the oil drain plug. Oil will go everywhere if you're not careful, so you have to wear gloves and avoid spills on clothing or the ground. Anyone who does laundry knows how challenging it can be to remove any kind of oil stain from clothing.

It Will Save You Time

On top of creating a big mess, changing your own oil can take much longer than having a trained professional do it. You might spend more time reading directions online than actually changing your oil and filter.

It Will Save You Money

A do-it-yourself oil change might cost more than you think. You need to buy the right materials and have the correct tools to get the job done. All of these little expenses can begin to add up, and before long, your efforts to save money have backfired!
