Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Bill's Auto Service and Towing! We hope that you had a great holiday and have more happy holidays to come. We know that the holidays mean that many of us will be traveling to visit friends and family over breaks and the winter months. If you are currently planning a road trip for the next couple of months, we urge you to use the tips listed below as a guide to keep you and your family safe on the road.
- It's always a good idea to pack an emergency kit in your vehicle. You never know what situations you might encounter on the road, so having essential items will be a great help if you find yourself with a flat tire or in an accident. We recommend having the following items packed in your vehicle: spare tire, jack, wrench, flashlight, flares, cell phone charger, and first aid kit.
- Make sure that you have lots of blankets and extra coats packed in case you get stuck in the cold. Traveling around the winter holidays can bring delays on the road so always be prepared to stay warm.
- Have extra water and snacks packed in your vehicle, especially if you are traveling with kids. You may want to also consider having activites and games planned to keep kids occupied on long drives.
- Set an appointment to have your vehicle inspected by the experts here at Bill's Auto Service and Towing before you leave. We will inspect vital components such as fluids, tires, engine, and more to ensure that your vehicle is ready to handle a long drive.
If you need anything for your vehicle, don’t hesitate to stop by Bill's Auto Service and Towing today. We hope you have more happy holidays to come!
