5 tips for a successful collision repair

Nobody wants car accidents and car dents, but unfortunate events happen from time to time. The best thing to do is to be mentally prepared for any situation. As the premium auto body shop in Toronto, Modern Automotive is happy to share helpful tips for people to understand the basic process of collision repair.   

Don’t hesitate to ask questions 

Car owners are not mechanical professionals, so they will not know every detail about collision repair. Just like you will call appliance repair technicians when you have a problematic fridge. When there is a need to repair a car dent, he needs to know the costs, time frames, and warranties. It is true that people tend to trust in a local service provider, but it is always recommended to have a clear picture of the services from the auto body shop. Nobody wants to find hidden costs after the repairs.

Use certified technicians 

When a car owner plans to work with an auto repair shop, he needs to figure out if the technician is certified by the auto manufacturer or others. A proper certification means that the technician receives professional training to perform quality repairs. People are more likely to receive great services from certified technicians.   

Check the source of replacement parts 

It is important to understand where the replacement parts come from. Are those parts qualified? How about the costs? It is always worth being well informed of the prices.  

Get a complete quote 

A car accident might affect many parts of the vehicle. Before the repair, the car owner should have a clear understanding of which parts need repairs. Common repairs include bumpers, dents, paints, filters, cracked glasses and doors. Try to go over each item carefully and ask questions when necessary.  

Don’t have to use the recommended auto body shop 

While it is easier to go with the auto body shop recommended by the insurance company, a car owner still has the right to choose the right service provider after a thorough research. After all, reliable and effective repair is the priority.  

It might be stressful when faced with collision repairs. That’s why Modern Automotive wants to shed light on the process to help car owners to get prepared for any unexpected accidents. If you live in a remote area, you can simply search on Google to check your nearby service providers with good SEO ranking and reviews.

4 benefits of upgrading your commercial lock

Commercial locks are one of the most important things when it comes to security. Upgrading your commercial locks can give you peace of mind. A reliable local locksmith Markham can easily do the job for you.

This article lists the benefits of upgrading your commercial lock.

Ensured security 

Upgrading commercial locks provides better security. They are made to protect buildings and businesses and make it impossible to break in.

As a business owner, your job is not only to make sure your business is well-maintained, but also secure. Having a high-security lock system in place can ease the burden of worrying about security and lets you focus on the other aspects of your business.

Standard pin tumbler locks are a security risk. They are the easiest to manipulate. High-security commercial locks are much more difficult to pick because they use diagonal cuts or biaxial cuts on the pins. By upgrading your locks, you prevent lock-picking intruders from entering your business unauthorized.

Upgraded locks are durable 

Locks should be replaced after some time for the best security, so upgrading your locks gives you a more durable and long-lasting lock. Different locks are more durable than others, so you should choose one that won’t need to be replaced for a longer period of time. This can help save you money in the long run. 

Customizable locks 

Most commercial locks are customizable, meaning they are designed to be customized for various purposes. By upgrading your commercial locks, you can customize your lock based on your needs. 

Rekey options and key tracking 

A lot of commercial locks allow you to reset your locks anytime. If any key is lost or stolen, you can reset your locks by changing the system so that the stolen key will no longer be accepted while the other keys will still work. 

Electric doors with commercial locks allow you to track keys with tracking software. You can administer a key system that lets you keep track of where keys are. This will help you find lost keys and determine which keys can be used where if you have different locks at multiple entry points. The keys provided with commercial locks also can not be duplicated. The best part is that you don’t need any IT specialists to help you, and a reliable locksmith can easily set up the system for you. Then you can just use it efficiently.  

 Using a professional to upgrade your commercial locks is the smartest decision you can make when it comes to security. It is worth the money to invest in a reliable, quality lock system, especially when you think about what is at stake. Moreover, a smart lock might also increase the curb appeal of your business by matching the styles of the windows and doors.  

A quality lock system should last years, and having a professional locksmith install the system ensures you get the most out of the lock system.

top tips for buying wedding rings (randor jewellery)

pic-2Top tips for buying wedding rings

The engagement ring is one of the most thought-about pieces of jewellery one will ever buy. It has to be perfect, right? But what about the wedding ring? It’s just as important! After all, it will spend forever on your beloved’s finger, snuggled right up against that engagement ring you took weeks to pick out. So, how do you find the perfect wedding ring? Here are some top tips to make buying that important piece of jewellery as effortless and fun as possible.

Know your budget

Once you get inside that jewellery store it’s very easy to be tempted to spend more than you can necessarily afford. Because of that, it’s important to go into shopping for your wedding ring with a clear idea of what you can afford. As a general guideline, consider allotting about 3-4 percent of your total wedding budget to your rings. The more you can afford to spend on your wedding, the more you can afford to spend on your rings, and vice versa. Having a budget before you step foot in the store will help you to stay focused. Don’t look at rings you can’t afford! Remember, there are beautiful choices at every price point.

pic-3Be metal savvy

There was a time when most weddings came in a choice of either gold or, well, gold. Nowadays, there are so many choices in terms of metals it can be daunting to make a decision. However, familiarizing yourself with the options can help narrow down your choices. Gold is still the most popular choice for wedding bands, but these days gold isn’t just gold. There is rose gold, white gold and traditional yellow gold to choose from. Then there is platinum (a more pricey choice) and titanium, which offers a more budget-friendly choice. Budget isn’t the only consideration when choosing metals, however. Certain metals look more complementary on certain skin tones. In addition, some people’s skin is more sensitive to certain metals than others, so you should take that into consideration as well. Finally, personal preference should always guide the choice as well.

Look for a deal

Never buy in the first store you visit. Even if you end up circling back to that store to buy the ring you saw on your first trip out, it’s always a good idea to visit more than one store to look for the perfect ring at the perfect price.

pic-1Rings don’t have to match

Although it is common for brides- and grooms-to-be to purchase rings in a set, it’s not necessary to do so. Each person’s ring should reflect his or her own personality and taste, and that could mean that they don’t necessarily match. This is also true of cases where perhaps one ring is a family heirloom and the other is a new purchase. It may be impossible to truly match one ring to the other, but by choosing rings that match each person’s personality the result will be a set of rings that is truly unique to the couple.

When it comes to wedding rings Toronto stores have an abundance to offer. There’s something for everyone!

cocktail recipe : petit punch vieux (d.w. alexander)

dwalexander - cocktailsI don’t often share any cocktail recipes on my site because, quite frankly, my skills and knowledge in regards to alcoholic beverages are quite limited. I rarely drink, but when I do, I tend to leave the bartending up to the professionals. 

When Nick from D.W. Alexander approached me to feature a cocktail on my blog, I jumped at the chance to do so. Not only could I learn how to make a delicious drink at home, but it would be coming from from the experts! The fact that they are also Canadian sealed the deal, in my mind.

D.W. Alexander is a Toronto-based bar that dates back to 1877. With infusing the past with the present, D.W. Alexander has become one of the cities top-five speakeasies. It’s obvious to see why.

dwalexander - barPetit Punch Vieux

There is nothing better than summer. This is the season of relaxation and holydays when you are able to put all your worries behind and enjoy your life just a little bit more. Naturally, summer brings hot temperature, short sleeves and cold drinks, all of which are great for our mood.

Whenever a person is planning a vacation or thinking about summer, he always has a picture of tropical island in his head. Unfortunately, most of the people don’t have the means to travel to tropical paradise each year. Many of us can only imagine that vacation in our heads. Luckily, with the introduction of Petit Punch Vieux, that tropical island is just a little bit closer than before. This cocktail was invented by Benjamin Jones, an employee of Clement rum distillery located on Martinique. Of course, given that the mixture has rum in it, this was actually a good commercial for the Clement rum itself. Although the drinks seems jovial and naïve (especially judging by its name), it is quite a strong beverage. It is great for summer but the fact that it is filled with alcohol and has pretty stiff taste, means that it can be drank even during the winter. Lime is a great addition to the cocktail, reducing the strength of the rum for just a little bit.

Petit Punch VieuxIngredients

2 ounces Martinique rhum agricole vieux, such as Clément V.S.O.P. or La Favorite
0.5 ounces cane syrup, such as Petite Canne
2 fresh lime wedges

This drink is served in a small Old Fashioned glass. First, you need to squeeze the juice from one lime wedge while rubbing the rims of the glass with the other. Then, toss in one spent wedge inside. Fill with ice, syrup and rum and mix until the cocktail is chilled.

Cocktails such as this are great for summer. They are just the refreshment that we need when we visit a local bar or club. You can find similar drinks at D.W. Alexander cocktail bar, one of the famous Toronto lounges.
