Check the TiresTires are a vital piece to a successful road trip. Before you hit the road, check the wear of your tires. If they are worn down, it may be time to consider replacing them. In addition to the longevity of your tires, it's also important to double check your tire pressure before you head out of town. Ensure all four tires are at the suggested air pressure level. This can help promote even tire wear and increase the life of your tires.
Change the OilIf you are getting close to needing an oil change, it's best to get that taken care of before heading on your road trip. To help promote a smooth running engine, regular oil changes are vital for your vehicle. Give our maintenance department a call today to schedule your oil change before you hit the road.
Pack an Emergency KitAn emergency kit in the trunk or back of your vehicle can come in handy. From flashlights to orange safety cones, it's important that this kit is well stocked and ready for you to use, should you need it. It's also a good idea to have jumper cables stashed away in your vehicle, should your battery run down for one reason or another.
Bring Plenty of SnacksEspecially if kids are traveling with you, it's important to have plenty of food on hand for your road trip. Many times children and adults will get cranky if they get hungry and that does not make for a pleasant situation inside a vehicle. Don't forget the water to keep you and all of your passengers well hydrated on your trip.
