WHEN IS THE OPTIMUM TIME TO TRADE IN?

Published

2 minute read

Consider Safety

Conventional wisdom will tell you the optimal time to trade in your current vehicle is, “Just before it starts costing you more money.” Without a crystal ball you won’t be able to predict unforeseen expenses. One major consideration is safety. Like everything, the safety technology within vehicles can become dated. A vehicle that once held a top safety rating may now be lower on the scale in comparison. As a result, could be less likely to protect you in the event of an accident. Consider the things you don’t see or use everyday when you’re deciding whether to trade your “perfectly good car” in on the latest and safest.

Examine Wear and Tear

Your vehicle is worth more now than it ever will be. Every kilometer you put on, every scratch, dent, or ding, and every new model that comes out, decreases the value of your vehicle. Repairs will either have you locked into that vehicle because you’ve invested in it with various repairs or even large bills for an engine or transmission. Another scenario could be that you’ll end up trading it in at a fraction of the ‘in good running condition’ value.

How much warranty do you have remaining?

If you have a vehicle that’s coming close to the end of the warranty this is generally a good time to look at a new vehicle. The latest statistics say that vehicles without warranty cost on average $1,500 a year to maintain. If you are someone that keeps your vehicle longer than the factory warranty supports, we also have a range of products to keep your vehicle protected and under warranty.

Contact us at Kipp Scott GMC Cadillac Buick to find out whether now is the best time for you to trade into a safer, more reliable vehicle or if an extended protection plan is the best route for you.

Business Spotlight: Capturing Life’s Most Memorable Moments

Published on

Vannessa Brown is a professional birth, motherhood and family photographer specializing in the documentation of life’s “unplanned, unposed, and unexpected moments.” From a child opening its eyes for the very first time, to a father holding his wife and new baby beside the birthing pool, to a toddler gently cradling their new sibling on their lap, Vannessa is passionate about capturing the beautiful and fleeting moments of birth and life. 

With an academic background in engineering, Vannessa began to explore photography when she was pregnant with her son, and it was her research on birthing that inspired her interest in birth photography. Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Vannessa Brown Photography was officially launched in 2011, and after photographing her first birth in May 2012, Vannessa never looked back. 

As a photographer, each experience brings with it its own unique demands – for periods of up to 5 weeks, she has to be available at a moments notice, and it can take up to 50 hours to properly document a single birthing experience.

In the last 8 years, she has documented nearly 100 births in hospitals all across Edmonton, in birthing centres, operating rooms and midwifery clinics, as well as home births in bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms. “It is an honor,” she says, “I am so grateful and thankful to the families who trust me to be a part of these life-changing events.” 

Much of her focus and creative approach has been informed by her own experience as a mother of two. From the moment of the actual birth, to the weeks and months after bringing a new child home, it is easy for special memories and moments to get lost among busy schedules and exhaustion. “You think as a mom, you’ll always remember, but you don’t,” she says, “it breaks my heart that I don’t remember all of the little things.” 

According to Vannessa, it is common for clients to be on the fence regarding birth photography. However, having been on both sides of the camera herself, as both the photographer and the photographed, “It is worth it,” she states simply, “these are details that are unique to each family’s journey. They are priceless.” 

In addition to birth photography, the packages offered by Vannessa Brown Photography include the Family Documentary Session, the Motherhood Session and the Family Mini Session, all specifically designed to capture life as it is. With a focus on real personalities and authentic family dynamics, Vannessa captures the moments you never knew you didn’t want to forget. Sessions can take place in your home or on location at a favorite local restaurant, park, or play area, creating real and lasting memories beyond the classic “Sunday best” family portraits.

Over the last weeks, the Carnival parking lot has been home to food trucks, a move which was initiated last year.
