Can you believe it’s August already? Where did the time go? Now that we’re here, it’s time to start preparing for the back-to-school season.
Got backpacks, pencils, pens, and paper? Check!
Got your laptops and tablets ready? Check!
Is your family vehicle fully serviced and all set for the first day of school? Maybe?
How about the vehicle your teenager drives? Is it ready to transport your student safely to school and back? Maybe?
We know Summer is the time when most of us go out and play. As we approach the final days of Summer (last minute road trip, anyone?) it’s time to make sure your family vehicle is equally ready for back-to-school.
Here are five ways to get your vehicles ready for the school year:
Check your brakes.
Without properly working brakes, your chances of a traffic accident rise exponentially. Just to be sure, bring your vehicle into Placentia Super Service for brake inspection and service.
Install Bluetooth for hands-free driving.
If you have a newer vehicle with Bluetooth already installed, congratulations! If you have an older model car that isn’t self-equipped with Bluetooth capabilities, you can purchase what you need from an electronics store.
See and be seen clearly.
From a clean windshield and wiper blades that smoothly sweep over the glass surface, be sure everything is clean and functional. Same goes for your headlights, taillights, parking lights, interior lights, and dashboard lighting. You can’t see and be seen clearly if you don’t maintain these items.
Prepare your emergency kit.
No one expects to be in an emergency, so many people don’t bother having an emergency kit. But, you’ll never know when you’ll have to flee a fire or try to escape a tsunami. It’s best to pack a fully stocked emergency kit with medical supplies, blankets, water, and food, just in case.
Check your spare tire kit.
If you have a spare tire, periodically check to make sure it’s inflated. If you have a jack, wrench, and other equipment that accompanies your spare tire, check it to make sure it’s properly working. No one wants to be stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire for long.
