To save on car insurance is important to note that the premiums calculated are different, since they are based on a variety of factors and many web sites provide all the information regarding the savings in premiums and get multiple quotes.

Quotes can be a great way to save precious time and energy while searching for auto transport carriers. They instantly connect you to a lot of players in the industry and thus saving your time. There are numerous listing sites and directories providing this service. But there are few which only include the quality players in their listings. So, choose the best ones from the available ones to ensure you get only quality quotes and do cross reference the listings with actual Auto Transport Carriers .

Companies that provide you with listings and directories of car moving companies can save a lot of your time, money, and effort. Generally they work on the principle of taking an input from you for your shipping requirements like types of vehicle, shipping date, destination, type of transport open/enclosed etc. and comparing with their database of the shipping companies and the facilities they provide.

The comparison gives estimates that are available for your comparison and proceed for the booking. All this process is free, fast and simple. The companies that charge you for providing a quote are generally not worth taking seriously. The entire process can be wrapped in a couple of days at most as compared you doing the legwork of taking out contact details of all the companies in the vicinity, contacting them and then haggling with them over small details. This might be a little exaggerated but the amount effort, time and money spent in this way is really not the smart way to work.

By getting the quotes you understand the price factors at play, save time, amount, and determine the reputation of the shipper. Also the biggest benefit finding economical rates by doing the least amout of effort possible. Generally good listings should serve the following purposes:

1. Provide carriers that ship safely, securely

2. Reduce research time to find reliable and licensed car movers

3. Provide cheap auto shipping rates

4. Provide the cheapest car transport in your area

Many companies that provide quotes also have good customer care departments which are there to solve your queries and thus, can act as live customized search engines for your needs. The benefits listed above should be a motivator for you to ditch the phone and take your search online.

Toyota South Africa Motors Announces Major Investment in Gauteng

20

Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) today (17 January 2011) announced a R363 million investment into a new Parts Distribution Warehouse in the Ekurhuleni municipality. The warehouse is being developed in two phases and will serve TSAM’s local and export markets.

The new warehouse represents the largest single investment by TSAM in the Gauteng Province and it follows a five year R8 billion investment programme into its manufacturing facilities in Prospecton, Durban. Upon completion the new facility will cover 80 000 m2 and it will be the largest of its kind in Africa.

-The development of a distribution warehouse of this size and scale is one of the clearest signs that we are committed to South Africa and intent on remaining South Africa’s most popular vehicle manufacturer,- says Dr. Johan van Zyl, president and CEO of Toyota South Africa Motors and Managing Officer of Toyota Motor Corporation. According to Van Zyl the new Parts Distribution Warehouse will allow the company to further improve the availability of service and replacement parts on all of its vehicles, while the efficiencies gained from its world class management systems will serve to contain the cost of these parts.

The new Parts Distribution Warehouse will boast state-of-the-art management and workflow systems that will ensure optimal man and machine separation. By utilising these technologies the new facility will become one of the most modern facilities in the global TMC network.

The first phase of the new Parts Distribution Warehouse will open in May 2012 with the first round of daily deliveries to the more than 220 Toyota, Lexus and Hino dealerships in Southern Africa. This phase will feature 39 000 m2 of warehouse space and 3 000 m2 of office space. More than 800 of TSAM’s staff compliment of 7 793 employees will be based here. The second phase will include a further 38 000 m2 of warehouse space and is scheduled for completion by or before 2015.

-Toyota South Africa will remain an integral member of Toyota Motor Corporation and will continue to produce vehicles in South Africa. In making this a reality we believe that the government, through the actions of the Department of Trade and Industry and the Automotive Production and Development Programme (APDP) has created a stable and predictable environment in which we as manufacturers can make investments such as the one that we are announcing today- says Van Zyl.

Energy-Efficient Electric Motors Now Built to Order by Groschopp

Electric motors and the new, modern energy-efficient motors are a far cry from the items one would have found back in the early years of the nineteenth century, emerging from the experimental workshop of Michael Faraday in 1821. The experimental setup he invented proved that the application of an electrical current through a magnet created a field which induced linear movement. However, it was not until ten years later that the practical application of an electric motor capable of turning machinery was invented and demonstrated by the British scientist William Sturgeon. .

The motors were expensive to manufacture and also expensive to repair, because of the components. It was not until about 1855 that practical, affordable, and reliable electric motors first appeared on the scene. The forerunner of all modern energy efficient motors and electrical motors in general was invented around 1873 by Znobe Gramme. The “Gramme Machine” was the first electric motor that was an efficient power source for diverse types of machinery. The story goes that the motor was invented purely by accident. Sometimes, the great breakthroughs in science and engineering through the ages has been a combination of luck and accidental discovery.

Practical electric motor design and manufacturing has revolutionized society as a whole, especially with the introduction of fractional horsepower motors (FHP), which are electric motor units with a power-rated output of 746 watts or less. The consumer-led boom, immediately following World War 2, led to the rise in these types of electrical motors which are the mainstay of washing machines, refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, and other domestic and commercial applications and appliances.

Modern vehicles would be incomplete without FHP units: adjustable seats, windscreen wipers, central locking systems, electric-operated sun roofs and convertible roofs. In fact, some thirty-five percent of all FHP motors is used in the manufacture and assembly of cars, trucks, buses and other vehicle types. Without modern efficient electric motor design and manufacture, the industrial and residential landscape we are used to would be completely different than it is now.

Groschopp is a trusted and respected manufacturer of highly engineered fractional horsepower electric motors and gear motors for OEM and distribution products. For more information about electric motors, contact details, and other types of motors, log on to the website today at

How To Buy A Properly Sized Motorcycle Helmet

19

Before you start your search for a motorcycle helmet, or take the next step towards buying a helmet, you should be aware of how motorcycle helmets are meant to fit. When buying a helmet, how do you know that it fits correctly? Buying a helmet that offers maximum protection requires you to have an understanding of the proper sizing and fit. For both safety and comfort, it is essential that you wear a proper fitting motorcycle helmet. Many new riders end up buying a helmet that is too large. While this may be comfortable, it may not be tight enough to remain on your head during a crash, and will therefore provide less protection than a properly fitted motorcycle helmet.

Most helmet manufacturers have size charts to assist you in choosing the appropriate size. Most helmets come in small, medium, large, and extra-large. Keep in mind that not all helmets are made the same; sizes often vary between manufacturers. Before buying a helmet, you’ll need to have an idea of your approximate size. Measuring the head is a good starting point for determining your correct motorcycle helmet size. Measure around your head at a point about an inch above the eyebrows, which will result in the largest possible circumference. Hat size can be another rough starting point for determining your motorcycle helmet size.

When buying a helmet, always be sure to try it on, either at the store or when it arrives in the mail. When trying on a full face motorcycle helmet, make sure that the helmet rests just above your browline. Try to fit your thumb between the helmet and your forehead. The helmet should rest so closely against your forehead that there is no room left to fit a finger. Conversely, if you feel like the helmet will leave red marks on your skin or it’s so tight that it is uncomfortable to get onto your head, it may be too small. Make sure that it does not obstruct your field of vision. Shake your head to check that the helmet feels secure, not too loose, on your head. If you wear prescription glasses, make sure that you’ll be able to wear them comfortably with the helmet.

If you are a woman, it is also crucial to understand the differences between men’s and women’s helmets. Although these differences are subtle, and you may even not notice any stylistic differences, buying a helmet that fits you correctly is crucial if you want for maximum protection while riding. If you accidentally end up buying a helmet designed for men, it will not fit as well as a helmet designed for women. In addition to potential design variations, most women’s motorcycle helmets are slightly smaller than the same size in men’s motorcycle helmets.

Auto Accessories Modifying Your Ride

Do you have a car? Of course, most the people especially those people in this generation want to own a car that could get attention. For sure, you have seen that movie -The Fast & The Furious-. You will see how and cool and fast their cars are. Many people want to own like those cars especially those people who are into racing. But the downfall of having those types of cars is they are very indeed expensive even if you will just modify your car to like one of those in that movie. But if ever you have money to modify your car, then all you need to have are auto accessories.

Auto accessories are those things that are attached to your car to make it more cool and attractive. Each model of cars has its own accessories. So, makes sure that you only buy those auto accessories that fit the style and model of your car. In modifying cars, you actually have two options; you could either modify them yourself or you could bring them to auto shop. Of course, it would cost you lesser if you’ll do it yourself. All you need to have is the auto accessories that you need to use. Unlike if you bring them to auto shops, you need to pay those people who will modify your car. But if ever you have a friend who owns an auto shop, then you could get some discounts from it.

Before you modify your car, make sure that you already know what type of auto accessories you want to use for your car. And, try to picture out the outcome of the style that you want. Try to think from headlights, seat covers, rims, tires, body and even the engine. You could ask someone who has an expertise in modifying cars for suggestion and ideas. For sure, when you have your car done, your friends will really admire your car a lot. Of course when that happen, that would also give you a good feeling of satisfaction that your friends like what you did to your car.

Buying A Second Hand Car In Zambia

6

So, you are thinking of buying a second hand / used car in Zambia, but you do not know where to start, what to look out for, and how much you should spend on what. Remember, to find that perfect second hand / used car you need to have patience and some knowledge- it will take effort to source a good second hand car in Zambia and you will need to restrain yourself until you find the right car at the right price.

Never rush into buying a used car in Zambia. This part is where the patience comes in! You need to start with a list of cars you would like and then start finding car sales and used car dealers across Zambia. Make sure to not only look for a used car dealer in the city you will be residing, but also look in other major cities like Lusaka, Ndola and Kitwe- in the end you must be sure that you know exactly what the Zambian car market has to offer.

Now, the question is where will you start looking for a used car in Zambia? If you’ve already checked the major car dealerships, the next step would be to take a look at the local newspapers like the Times of Zambia, Post Newspaper Zambia and the Daily Mail(specifically the classified sections) and surf the Internet for used cars by just going to one of the major search engines and typing in “car sales Zambia”, “used cars Zambia” or “second hand cars Zambia”. You can also contact local auction houses who are selling bank repossessed cars.

Some newspapers or publications we recommend include the Times of Zambia look out for the Post Newspaper Zambia. The Times of Zambia in Lusaka or the Goleka.com, which is also available online, will have plenty of cars to choose from. The Post Newspaper Zambia have a pull out weekly called Sangwapo all have sections where you can look for second hand cars and used car sales.

As the new owner of a used car you should enquire as to the costs for repairs and availability of spare parts. This will all give you an idea as to what the first service will put you back. Foreigners also need to apply for a Traffic register number before being able to register or licence their new car. For this you will need two colour passport size photographs and a copy of your Passport.

Always remember that when you are buying a used car you should read through the sales documentation carefully. In most cases the car is bought or sold without any warranty at all and in the condition as is.

This in effect means that you have to buy the right car. Buying a cheap car that isn’t in a good condition and will break in 3 months just is not worth the time and hassle.
