Canada’s 5 best-selling vehicles for the first 6 months of 2018


Best selling vehicles in Canada

This June, there was a 2 per cent drop in total sales  and the first-half of 2018 ends as the second-strongest start to the year in Canadian history.

Canadians have bought and leased more than 2 million vehicles in 2018 for just the second time ever, but that’s with fewer total sales than last year.

More Canadians are acquiring new vehicles by getting into longer-term loans, having been attracted to car dealer showrooms with strong incentives but still the Canadian auto industry may not be as healthy as it appears on paper. 

Vehicle sales in the first 6 months of 2018

According to Global Automakers of Canada, 1.04 million new vehicles were sold between January and June. Surprisingly the most popular vehicles on which the industry depends for great swathes of volume, are suffering substantial demand decreases.

Honda and Toyota, for instance, sold nearly 5,000 fewer Corollas and Civics in the first-half of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017.

Moving Tips - Changing homes isn't always easy

We recently moved offices and got us thinking about all our customers that have to relocate to a new home.
While packing, we decided to put together some of the things we did to make our move as smooth as possible. We thought this would be helpful for people moving to a new city, or a new home.


Before you start packing
Clean before your start putting things in boxes. You don't want dust coming from the old place to the new one.This will also help you get rid of things you really don't need or want anymore.Once you have sorted the things you actually want to take, you can decide whether you can donate the things you don't need anymore.Separate your items in categories like: glassware, cleaning supplies, bedding, etc. This way when you pack, you can sort things in a more organized way.Label your boxes. By category, or by room, you  can even mark which side must go up.Before you disconnect your electronics, take a picture, this way you will know where all the cables go.Update …

Fuel-efficient driving techniques by the Department of Natural Resources Canada

If one of your resolutions is to save money, or be more conscious of your expenses or even help the environment, we have a way you can do all these.
The ShipMyRide team did some research on an interesting topic, which is how we can be more fuel-efficient while driving.
Fuel-efficient driving can save Canadians hundreds of dollars in fuel yearly, improve road safety and prevent wear and tear on your vehicle. By adopting these 5 fuel-efficient driving techniques, you can lower your vehicle’s fuel consumption daily and carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 25%. 1. Accelerate gently
The harder you push your gas pedal, the more fuel you will be using. In the city, you can use less fuel by easing onto the gas pedal gently. For example, to be as fuel-efficient as possible, take 5 seconds to accelerate your vehicle up to 20 kilometres per hour from a stop.
TIP: Imagine you have an open cup of coffee on the dashboard. Don’t spill it!
2. Maintain a steady speed
When your speed drops and spikes…

Canada's Gasoline Prices - Understanding Changing Prices

There are several factors that affect the prices at the pumps in Canada. Some prices might change day to day or pump to pump, or even province to province.

It’s hard to keep up, but below is some basic information that can be used to understand the fuel prices at gas stations.

The price at the pump for a litre of gasoline is calculated by the price of crude oil, the cost of refining that crude, marketing and distribution costs, taxes and, of course, profits to the seller (considering the people/company who extract the oil all the way to the pump with the end product).

Prices vary from province to province due to the cost of transportation and taxes provincial and municipal.

The amount of fuel a station can sell may also affect end price. Potentially, a station that sells more fuel and other products, may be able to offer their products at a lower price than a station that sells less fuel.



A strategy that some gas station retail sites use is to offer food, car washes, personal items, l…
