Travelling Soon? Winter Checklist!

I have had some fantastic times away in this country and count myself very lucky, but I do often have a sense of wanderlust about what I would see and where I would go, should I have the ability to hop in on a plane and see somewhere new. Currently, I am spending loads of time seeing different parts of the UK (I have been to Yorkshire, Bournemouth, Hampshire and Portsmouth in the last few weeks)

Traveling in the UK

The likelihood is that I will be travelling within the UK, which means paying attention to the car and ensure it is safe. One of the best ways to do this is to ensure that your car is serviced on a regular basis. This allows your car to get the once over and make sure it is safe to drive. The good thing about car servicing like this is that it may help you avoid larger vehicle problems in the future because it highlights problems before they arise.

Checking Your Car Before You Go Anywhere

Whether you're going on a road-trip or not, it's important that you ensure your car is roadworthy for the cold weather that is fast approaching. For starters, you need to make sure your MOT is up to date. On top of this, your car would probably benefit from being serviced, just to make sure it is in its best possible condition. Make sure you check things like oil, water and petrol at home before you set off anywhere too. The last thing you want is for your car to break down and you be left stranded or for there to be a risk that anyone could get hurt!

One of the most important things is to ensure that your car tyres are up to the job! It is easy to assume that as long as your tyres look okay they're fine to travel with, however, you need to get these checked by a professional to make sure they're roadworthy, and replace them if they're not! Buy cheap tyres in Stirling only from Fife Autocentre. They offer a wide range of good quality tyres - all under one roof!

Regular Checks

Whether it's winter or not, keeping your car in tip top condition is essential. Make sure that you get an expert to look at your car on a regular basis and carry out a full service. This helps to make sure that your car is in its best possible condition. Car services look at the general motorbility of your vehicle but also checks things like car lights and tyres to make sure everything is good to go.

Be Travel Safe

Driving conditions become much more difficult in the cold weather. So while a trip to Las Vegas would be lovely, if you're staying in the UK it is essential that you get your vehicle checked for driving in much harsher conditions. Don't forget to check things such as your air conditioning/car heating because we're set for a cold winter and the last thing you want is to be travelling in a car that feels like an ice box!

Just take steps to look after your car, prepare for winter and to make sure you and any passengers are as safe as possible.
