Garage Dollies and Car Care Products

Certainly, maintaining your car's condition and appearance is essential, and having a well-organized and equipped garage can greatly facilitate effective car care. Here's a guide to setting up a garage car care routine:

1. Organize Your Garage:

  • Clear clutter and create space for your car. A clutter-free garage makes it easier to work on your vehicle and access your car care products. 
  • Car dollies are designed to ease and streamline the process of moving a vehicle to and from the showroom or your garage when you are working on it, either for those that cannot or choose not to actually drive the vehicle. For this reason, there are a large number of different types of heavy-duty car dollies on the market – each offering a different size, weight rating, and shape to match the specific needs of your classic truck.

2. Gather Essential Tools and Supplies:

  • Ensure you have all the necessary car care products from our line from Lanes Pressional Car Products.
  • Invest in quality tools such as wrenches, sockets, pliers, jacks, jack stands, and more for basic maintenance and repairs.

3. Regular Washing:

  • Set up a designated area in your garage for washing your car. You can use a hose, bucket, and a gentle car wash soap.
  • Use a foam cannon to apply a thick layer of soap, which helps lift dirt and grime, minimizing scratches during the wash.

4. Clay Bar and Polishing:

  • Choose a well-ventilated area within the garage for clay barring and polishing.
  • Use a clay bar to remove contaminants from the paint surface.
  • Apply polish to remove imperfections and restore shine.

5. Waxing and Sealing:

  • Apply wax or sealant to protect the paint and provide a glossy finish.
  • Use applicator pads or dual-action polishers for even application.

6. Interior Cleaning:

  • Set up a space for interior cleaning with access to a vacuum cleaner and interior cleaning products.
  • Vacuum the interior thoroughly and clean surfaces using appropriate cleaners and brushes.

7. Tire and Wheel Care:

  • Have a designated spot for cleaning and detailing your tires and wheels.
  • Use a wheel cleaner and brushes to remove brake dust and grime.

8. Regular Maintenance:

  • Create a maintenance schedule for oil changes, fluid checks, and other routine tasks.
  • Keep your tools organized and easily accessible for quick maintenance tasks.

9. Safety and Comfort:

  • Install proper lighting in your garage to ensure good visibility during car care activities.
  • Consider adding a workbench or a sturdy table for working on smaller tasks.

10. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

  • Always wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and safety goggles, when working on your car.

11. Storage Solutions:

  • Use shelves, cabinets, and hooks to keep your car care products organized and easily accessible.
  • Store larger items like jacks and jack stands in a designated area.

12. Regular Inspections:

  • Perform regular visual inspections of your car's exterior and interior to catch any issues early.

Remember, the key to effective garage car care is consistency. Regular maintenance and cleaning will not only keep your car looking great but also contribute to its overall performance and longevity.
