Bosch Car Service – Value preservation guide

What should you note when parking your vehicle?

The first choice for increased value of your vehicle is basically a covered parking space - be it in the form of a garage, a covered carport or a tarpaulin during long periods outdoors. Caution: In some countries there are legal regulations with regard to the legibility of license plates. Therefore, keep yourself informed before buying a tarpaulin whether these may be used in the relevant countries.


What is especially important in car care and exterior cleaning?

Ensure that the car washes are modern as far as possible, because the conventional brushes can cause damage to the paintwork of your vehicle in the worst case. If you prefer to clean your car yourself, handle especially the high-pressure cleaner carefully: Always keep the nozzle at a sufficient distance to prevent any damage to the paint, tires, headlights and wheels. In particular, following winter, you should perform a paint and underbody wash to thoroughly clean the entire chassis to remove any rust-promoting thawing salt residues.

exterior cleaning

The following parts should be regularly cleaned and maintained:

• Rim (in particular, alloy wheels)

• Paint (e.g. with a polish, car wax or touch-up pens for repairing minor damage)

• Rubber and chrome-plated elements (e.g. with rubber conditioner or polishing paste)

How do you keep the interior of your car clean?

The regular use of a vacuum cleaner is recommended for retaining the original look of your vehicle interior even after several years. You should also treat the individual fittings with appropriate care products.

You should perform a thorough internal cleaning of your vehicle at least twice a year. Also pay attention to any spots where moisture or even dampness can be observed, for example, under the mats. If in doubt, please consult Bosch Car Service for troubleshooting and option for the professional elimination of the defect.

How do you remove small scratches and stone chips in the paint on your car?

Even the smallest scratches or stone chips can reduce the value of your car considerably. Nevertheless, the effects of slight parking dent or superficial scratches can be easily and inexpensively repaired by so-called "smart repair".


Ask Bosch Car Service for an inexpensive "smart repair" to increase the value of your car or a used car.

How can maintenance and car care contribute to retaining the value of your vehicle?

The so-called "checkbook care" is the linchpin for the long-term value preservation of your vehicle. In addition to car care, regularly performed inspections and maintenance as well as their documentation can also give you the best points of argumentation for maximum resale value of your car. Wear parts are replaced in good time, any existing defects are detected and eliminated immediately after consultation with customer on request.
