4 Convenient Purchases You May Not Have Thought Of Making Online

Millions of people buy products online in the 21st century. Everything from deodorant to planes can be bought without ever leaving the questionable comfort of your computer chair. On the other hand, many products are still mainly purchased in brick and mortar stores, and have yet to take off online. However, there are hundreds of automotive products that you may not have thought of purchasing online, and for one reason or another people always feel the need to head to a store to purchase them. Let's take a look at some items that can conveniently be bought online.

1. Windshield Washer Fluid

Most people don't bother to refill the fluids in their car, and instead rely on a mechanic to do it for them when they find themselves visiting one. In certain climates where precipitation is plentiful however, drivers can find themselves running out of fluid much quicker than anticipated. Ordering windshield fluid online is much quicker than traveling to a store, and often cheaper as well. And no need to hire a mechanic when the fluid arrives, the process of refilling is as easy as pouring a glass of water.

2. GPS Units

Why let luxury car owners have all the fun? Manufacturers such as Garmin and Nuvi offer their standalone GPS units online, and one can compare hundreds of models versus the few that are often on display at electronic stores. Ordering online also guarantees your unit will have the most up-to-date maps, compared to one which may have been sitting in a showroom for months. Installation is simple as well: just stick or clip the unit onto your windshield or dashboard.

3. Touch Up Paint

Over time, every car develops dings, dents, and chips. No matter how safe you are, simply driving a car results in minor blemishes. Instead of paying someone a costly fee to fix these, why not order a bottle of Touch-Up paint and take matters into your own hands? Most cost less than ten dollars, and will save you hundreds compared to the alternative.

4. Tires

Manufacturers such as Carlisle sell tires online which are delivered in days, and can be installed with a little online research and some elbow grease. Carlisle tires online even offers ATV and trailer tires, which are even simpler to install.
