Edmunds.com, Popular Mechanics, AutoGeek.net and many other car care professionals all recommend that your car should be washed 1 to 4 times a month and a full wax and polish at least once a year.
Here are some Do’s and Don’ts we believe in when it comes to routine car wash maintenance of your paint;
Don't... wait for a layer of crud to accumulate before washing. Dead bugs, bird droppings, and chemicals from the atmosphere all leach acids that can strip away wax and eventually eat into your car's paint. If left too long, they can cause damage that requires sanding and repainting the area to correct.
Do... wash off dead bugs, bird droppings, and tree-sap mist as soon as possible. Other than this, a weekly car wash will keep the finish in its best shape. In addition, if you live in an area that suffers from acid rain, rinse your vehicle off after a period of rainy weather. Otherwise, acidic chemicals in the rainwater will be left on the surface after the droplets have evaporated, leaving a mark that can permanently mar the paint.
Don't... wash your car when the body is hot, such as immediately after driving it or after it has been parked in direct sunlight for awhile. Heat speeds the drying of soap and water, making washing more difficult and increasing the chances that spots or deposits will form.
Don't... move the sponge in circles. This can create light, but noticeable scratches called swirl marks. Instead, move the sponge lengthwise across the hood and other body panels. And don't continue using a sponge that's dropped on the ground without thoroughly rinsing it out. The sponge can pick up dirt particles that can scratch the paint.
Do... rinse all surfaces thoroughly with water before you begin washing to remove loose dirt and debris that could cause scratching. Once you begin, concentrate on one section at a time, washing and rinsing each area completely before moving on to the next one. This ensures that you have plenty of time to rinse before the soap dries. Start at the top, and then work your way around the car. Use a hose without a nozzle and let the water flow over the car from top to bottom. This creates a sheeting action that helps minimize pooling of water.
Do... work the car-wash solution into a lather with plenty of suds that provide lots of lubrication on the paint surface. And rinse the sponge often. Using a separate bucket to rinse the sponge keeps dirt from getting mixed into the sudsy wash water.
Don't... let the car air dry, and don't expect a drive around the block to do an effective job. Either will leave watermarks caused by minerals in hard water. In addition, don't use an abrasive towel or other material that can leave hairline scratches in the paint.
Do... use a chamois (natural or synthetic) or soft terry towels. If you choose towels, you may need several. It's best to blot the water up instead of dragging the towel or chamois over the paint. The drying process can be speeded up by using a soft squeegee to remove most of the water on the body, but be sure the rubber is pliable and that it doesn't pick up bits of dirt that can cause scratches.

Travel is best when you’re not worried about it, one unforeseen worry is often returning from your trip to find you can’t start your car due to a dead battery, but Expressway Airport Parking is always looking after your car battery or your Hybrid/Electric car! The average car battery has a 3 year life, we often forget about it and assume it will start our car every time, but if you’re at the end of your battery’s life and you leave your car idle for a week or more it could be just enough to drain below the necessary 24 volts to turn your car over. This is where Expressway Airport Parking shines in taking care of you and your car.

Car sharing is the fastest new model of car rental and an exciting new feature at Expressway Airport Parking; it’s the availability of cars for rent via TURO.com. TURO is a car sharing company that facilitates cars that are sitting idle at Expressway’s parking lot. The share economy, which strives to allow people to utilize their cars while they aren’t using them, creates a marketplace based on peer review that will allow people to choose whom they do business with. According to Auto Rental News, over 2million people will rent one of 30,000 cars available through a car share app in coming 2016 up double in the last 5 years! Currently cars are available through TURO.com to be rented that are located at Expressway Airport parking, sign up at TURO is free and the phone app is free allowing you to locate car share availability anywhere in the country.
An interesting demand we see at Expressway Airport Parking are customers who will come park at Expressway and rent a car to travel regionally where airlines are not logistically or financially cost effective. Often times this is the best financial option for the company expense report and allows the business traveler save the wear and tear on their car.
You might say, “I wouldn’t rent my car out to a stranger!”, however the share economy is a “Review based” economy the KEY is each seller or buyer leaves a “Review” on the other on how well they dealt in the transaction and based on the strength of those “Reviews”, your fair dealing with other sellers and buyers boosts your status as a reliable dealer. Turo sets renter eligibility requirements of 21 years of age minimum and a clean driving record. The car owner must have a car with less than 100,000 miles and both renter and owner are provided property and liability coverage through Turo. Turo also provides 24/7 roadside assistance. So with the peace of mind that your renter is screened, the car that is rented must be low mileage and late model, and $1,000,000 of insurance coverage is in place, all that is left to do is review your renter or owner’s performance of the rental transaction. Over time an experience rating protects everyone from the standpoint of providing a trustworthy marketplace.
Generally speaking you will find a more economical rental rate as opposed to the conventional labor intensive rent a car companies with lots of facility over head.
