We received a great email testimonial from a new Krown customer back in August 2016. He brought in his brand new 2016 Toyota Tacoma to have rust-proofed. Not only did he send us a wonderful thank you email, but he also posted his thoughts on an online Tacoma forum! Here's what he had to say:
"Just wanted to let you know that I had a great experience at your shop yesterday. I had the white 2016 Tacoma in for the Krown rust proofing treatment. I was able to watch Michael apply the the treatment to my truck and I feel that he did a first rate job. Great guy.
Thanks for letting me watch the process and take a few pics. I knew I was in good hands when I saw the sign in the lobby, LOL. Hopefully I will be able to send some business your way from my circle of friends.
Here's a thread I started on Tacoma World:

When people think of rust proofing, cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs often come to mind. Trailers are often overlooked when it’s time to rust proof your vehicle. Depending on what you use your trailer for, you may not even think that it needs rust proofing and you would rather save money by leaving it be. Here are some things to consider when it comes to rust-proofing your trailer.
Rust and Your Trailer
Trailers are just like vehicles: they have metal parts that are just are susceptible to corrosion and trailers can rust just as quickly as a car if it is left unprotected. Even if your trailers doesn’t get used often, it is still exposed to moisture and other elements that can cause and accelerate corrosion and you may find your trailer full of rust when you really need to use it.
Trailers can often be overlooked for maintenance, so the dangers of rust spreading can be higher than on your vehicle. You may not even notice a rust problem at first glance, which is why thoroughly inspecting your trailer is important, no matter how much or little it is used.
Prevention vs Repairs
Perhaps your budget is limited and you don’t want to spend extra money rust proofing a trailer that you use once in a while. However, Driving.ca points out that preventing the rust problem in the first place will be cheaper than repairing the damage after rust has settled in. Even a minor rust problem can cost you hundreds of dollars and if it spreads, the repair costs could be so high it may be cheaper just to replace the trailer.
Every spot of your trailer is vulnerable, including the frame and suspension system, so protecting these areas is important if you want to have a usable trailer for when you need it. It is especially true if you use your trailer often for work purposes.
How You Can Protect Your Trailer
While there are many rust proofing methods you can use to help protect your trailer from rust damage, drip oil rust proofing has been proven to be extremely effective at preventing corrosion. Krown uses the drip oil method, and the oil-based product is a non-toxic mix that is environmentally friendly and offers maximum protection to your trailer.
So when you are ready to rust proof your vehicle, don’t forget to bring your trailer along for the ride as well. The dangers of rust damage apply to your trailer just as much as your vehicle, so contact Krown for more information today!
We all want our vehicles to be rust-free. Rust can lead to expensive repair bills and can even cause you to buy a new car.
Purchasing rust-proofing for your car is a good way to keep your car living long and strong, but there are other steps you can take to help protect your vehicle from corrosion. Here are a few tips on how you can help keep your car rust-free.
1. Car Care
Washing your car or even just taking it to a local car wash can be often overlooked due to your busy schedule. Dirt, mud and corrosive elements can build up on the body and under body of your car, which can lead to rust forming.
Winter months can be especially hard on your vehicle. The weather may be extremely cold and washing your car may be the last thing on your mind, but keeping your car clean during the winter is extremely important. Many cities and towns use salt to keep the roads safe, and the salt can build up on the body and especially underneath your vehicle.
Salt accelerates the formation of rust and can cause bad corrosion problems if left alone. It is a good idea to wash your car every two weeks or once a week if the roads have been salted. Waxing your car can also help prevent any damage from corrosion as well.
2. Be Aware of Your Cars Surroundings
What type of environment do you park your car in? Parking in puddles, dirt or other moist areas can allow moisture to build up in your vehicles undercarriage, which raises the risk of rust forming. Also, if you leave your vehicle exposed to the elements on your driveway, you run the same risk, especially during the wet season.
If you have a dirt driveway, you may want to think about investing in laying some concrete down to avoid expensive repair bills that could be headed your way. And purchasing a car shelter if you don’t have an attached or detached garage at your home, that way your vehicle will be protected from the elements.
3. Your Gas Tank
Many people only pay attention to how much gas is in their gas tank just so they know when they need to fuel up again to get to where they need to go, but how much fuel you keep in your tank can have an influence over corrosion.
Driving.ca has a great article where one of the things they talk about is how the temperature difference between liquid fuel and the outside can increase the amount of condensation build-up. By keeping your fuel tank topped off, you can decrease the amount of condensation, which will help decrease the chances of rust forming around your fuel tanks.
