Prepare your car and yourself for the winter

While the snow is great during the holiday season, the salt that comes along with it does serious damage to cars if the proper steps are not taken. To prevent damage from the salt, it’s important to winterize your car. In the beginning of the winter season, wash and wax your car thoroughly to keep the exterior of your car from rusting. Do this once every month or two to keep your car healthy.

Once you’ve taken care of the exterior of the car, put together an emergency kit just in case something should happen while you’re driving. This kit includes things like a warm blanket, extra clothes, a flashlight, flares, spare food, and anything else you think you may need in the event of an emergency.

 By taking these few simple steps, you ensure the health of both you and your vehicle for many years to come.
