Here at Autopro Alignment & Maintenance, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers and friends in Kamloops a very happy holiday season. To celebrate the holidays, we want to share some of our favorite holiday tips – tips that will help you keep your car safe and running smoothly during the busiest time of year.
Prepare Your Car for Winter Weather
As temperatures start to drop, it’s important to make sure your car is prepared for winter weather. Make sure to check your tires and if need be, replace them with a good set of winter tires. Consider getting snow chains if you plan on travelling on especially icy roads. Also, make sure your windshield wipers are in good condition and fill up your windshield washer reservoir with anti-freeze solution so it doesn’t freeze over during a cold snap.
Pack an Emergency Kit
It’s always a good idea to pack an emergency kit for your car when travelling during the holidays. The kit should include items like blankets, snacks, water bottles (filled with warm beverages), an ice scraper/snow brush, jumper cables, and road flares. You may also want to include extra clothing such as hats, gloves, and jackets in case you end up stranded in the cold weather. Be sure to also include items such as first aid kits and flashlights with extra batteries if you plan on doing any night driving.
Check Your Lights
This is one of the most important aspects of safe driving during the holiday season – make sure all of your lights are working properly before taking off on road trips to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. In addition to headlamps and brake lights, check that turn signals are working properly (both front and rear) so that other drivers can easily see which direction you are turning or where you intend to go when merging into another lane. And last but not least – be sure those fog lights are turned off when there isn’t any fog around!
We hope these tips help keep you safe this holiday season! From everyone here at Autopro Alignment & Maintenance in Kamloops BC – have a wonderful holiday! Thank you for choosing us as your go-to auto shop – we look forward to seeing you again soon!
