Road Trip Preparation

Preparing for a road trip has never been easier. When getting ready to head out for a road trip this summer, remember to pack an Emergency Kit for your car. The emergency kit should include a first aid kit, a wind-up flashlight, some jumper cables, a fire extinguisher and finally a toe rope. Wherever you go, road trips can throw many obstacles your way. Prepare yourself and consider bringing a spare tire and a portable GPS navigation system.

Road Trip Planner

Worried about forgetting something important? Create a road trip checklist! This will prevent you from having to end your road trip early and have you prepared for whatever obstacle is thrown your way! Road trips can certainly create a mess inside and outside of your car. Make sure to fill up your windshield washing fluid to wipe away dirt and any “pesky” bugs that find their way to onto your car. Other great items to keep handy are car wipes and seat cleaners for those inevitable road trip spills and messes.

Be Confident

Road Trip Tips

Take the Time Now, and Save Time Later. Follow These Steps to Prepare Your Car for Summer Road Trips:

    If your battery stops, you stop. Make sure that the pit stops you make are only the ones you plan, by checking your battery life and making sure your car is in good standing. Regular battery maintenance will prolong the life of your vehicle.
    Tire pressure naturally changes over time. It is imperative to check tire pressure as seasons change. Proper tire maintenance will provide you with even road wear during your road trip. Plan ahead and make a note in your calendar to check your tire pressure as the seasons change with an accurate tire gauge.
    Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Ensure that your motor runs smoothly throughout your road trip by checking the oil level and by making sure that you are using the best oil for your vehicle.
    A simple cooling system inspection, be it a top up or a flush and fill can help prevent your car from overheating. Keep your vehicle from acting up in the hot temperatures during this summer’s road trip!
