Summer Preparation Check ListApr 10th, 2020
Spring is here, which means that summer is just around the corner! Just like winter, it’s important to take the necessary steps to to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive. Download our summer preparation check list and be prepared.
With the change of seasons, this is the perfect time to make sure your oil, coolant, transmission fluid and brake fluid are changed/topped up. These are all important elements to help your vehicle run properly. Keeping on top of this could help avoid costly repairs in the future
With the warmer weather in our future, there will be an increase of wildlife and pedestrians on the roads. Ensure that your lights are in working order to increase your visibility.
Your winter tires were good to you this past winter, but it’s time to change them for your summer set.
The ice and snow may have made your wiper blades dull over the cold months. If they need to be replaced, this is the time to do so.
To protect yourself and others on the road, ensure that your brakes are in good working condition. If you notice that they aren’t performing the way they used to, it’s time to get them checked out.
Like your brakes, your battery is extremely important to the performance of your vehicle. No one wants to get stranded on the side of the road with a dead battery.
Extend your spring cleaning from your home to your driveway because there is nothing better than a freshly cleaned vehicle. Swap out your winter floor mats for your summer ones and take your vehicle to a carwash.
Emergency supplies can include, an external phone charger, first aid kit, bottled water, non-perishable food items, extra clothing, blankets, a flashlight, and candles. Always be prepared for the unexpected.
A CAA membership can come in handy if you run into vehicle trouble.
