During the winter months, the weather conditions mean that we have to pay a lot more attention to caring for our cars and making sure that they are safe to drive. Ideally in the winter in particular it is best to keep the car tucked up in a garage when not in use, but many of us do not have a garage to store the car in. So here are some of the best things that you can do for your car over the winter months…

In the winter, cars are more prone to breaking down, so do your checks before you head off on a journey, especially a long one. Check the tyres, make sure you have enough fuel, check your water, coolant and engine oil levels too.

It is also a good idea to be prepared for a breakdown, as they can happen even to the most prepared and vigilant person of all. Make sure you have blankets and a flask of hot drink in the car in case you have a long wait for a rescue, as well as a fully charged phone to be able to contact someone for help. You might also want to keep a book and some cereal bars so that you have some food and a way to stave off the boredom.

 

It is also a great idea to have a professional like this MOT Gloucester based company have a look at your car regularly and when you think you may have a problem. This will help to head off any possible problems that could result in your vehicle breaking down.
