Holiday Shuttle Service While Your Car is in the Shop
How do you combine holiday shopping with getting your vehicle ready for your holiday travels? It’s simple. Make an appointment to drop your car off at Beck’s and we’ll shuttle you to and from the Mall or other local shopping center.
Getting Your Vehicle Ready for the Holidays
With holiday shopping on your mind, no one wants to worry about their car not starting or getting stuck in the snow. That’s why it is important to have your vehicle checked out prior to the really cold weather arriving.
Extremely cold weather can take its toll on batteries. Unless you take your vehicle in to have the battery tested, there is no easy way to determine the condition of your battery.
If your battery is over three years old, you may want to have it checked by an auto technician. You can scrape away corrosion from the posts and cables and make sure the connections are tight.
Make sure your car’s heater and defroster are operating properly. There’s nothing worse than not being able to see out through your windshield or not having heat in your vehicle.
The level and concentration of your engine coolant should be checked. A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is normally recommended. While you are at it, don’t forget to check the belts, clamps and hoses for wear and tightness.
Windshield Wiper Blades
Replace old windshield wiper blades and stock up on windshield wiper solvent. We all know what it is like to try to look out a dirty, streaked windshield when it is snowing, sleeting or raining heavily. It‘s no fun and can lead to accidents.
Worn tires will be of little use in winter weather. Examine your tires for adequate tread depth and uneven wear. Rotate your tires as recommended and make sure your spare and jack are in good condition.
Dependable and Safe
Most of us don’t have the option to not drive in cold or inclement winter weather. So it is important that your vehicle be dependable and safe as you travel during the winter months.
Take the time now to have your vehicle checked out and enjoy a season of worry-free driving, especially as you head to the Mall.
