Motorists and owners of Reich caravan taps have been advised to deal with car maintenance problems as soon as they arise.
Vlad Samarin, editor of Samarins.com, said that if chips or scratches are left they can corrode and become much more expensive to fix.
"Similarly, if birds target your car regularly, it might be a good idea to keep a spray bottle with water in your car - so you can wash the bird droppings off before they cause stains. Bird droppings are very acidic and abrasive," he added.
Car owners should also ensure they clean windscreen wipers when they clean their car, he added, as dirt and sand can become trapped underneath them and cause scratches to the glass.
Meanwhile, Halfords chief executive officer David Wild, said that motorists are spending less on cars and bikes as a result of the current climate.
Car enhancement sales in the year to July 1st dropped by ten per cent, while auto maintenance spending dropped by 2.2 per cent.
