Wintertime can be a very risky time for vehicle ownership. To make sure that both your car and your family stay safe this winter, here are some simple Ellesmere Port Winter Safety Checklist items you should make to prepare for the onset of the colder months. Download our full Ellesmere Port Winter Safety Checklist guide here.
There are three groups of checks: your car, yourself, and of course to ensure you know a reliable and trustworthy garage that can put right any problems with your car.
This covers the basic checks such as the condition of the brakes, tyres, battery and fluids such as screenwash and anti-freeze. It is easy to ignore these basic checks between your services, but it could massively affect the chances of you breaking down in the freezing weather, so it really is false economy not to do them. Remember your tyres must have at least 1.6mm of tread to comply with the law, but you will actually want significantly more in the winter months for the best performance and safety, perhaps even switching to a set of winter tyres.
The next step is to make sure that you have everything you need. It is easy to forget to load your car with basics like sunglasses, shovels, ice scrapers, de-icer and blankets. Not to mention all of the documentation for breakdown cover and emergency recovery.
It is important to find a local and trustworthy garage to do any work on your car. A good garage will offer free of charge written quotations and will always consult with you before they carry out any work on your car.
