Preparing your car for the winter freeze

on Friday, 07 December 2012. Posted in N21 Experts





We have been told to expect very cold weather next week. We recommend NOW is the time to make sure you prepare your car, before the extreme cold weather hits
 
Make sure your antifreeze and screen wash levels are at their maximum. 
 
Check your tyres are fully inflated and make sure the treads are above the legal limit - ( tread depth gauges are available to buy). 
 
Have de-icer and an ice scraper in your car so you can completely clear all your windows before driving. 
 
A car dehumidifying pad can help stop your car misting on the inside too. 
 
Snow has also been forecast so it's always worth keeping some snow chains or snow socks in your car along with a snow shovel in case you get stuck. 
 
Its also worth making sure your driveway is free of snow and ice so you can get to and from your car safely. 
 
Bags of de-icing grit are available as well as all the items mentioned above from Auto Store. 
 
Lastly, if the snow is too bad and driving is impossible, we also have in stock sledges! You won't get very far.. But you'll have a lot of fun trying !!
