Our Top Ten Services for Getting Ready for Winter

  1. Tire Inspection – We’ll take a look at your tires, making sure the tread and pressure are appropriate for the coming icy weather, and you can even change them to snow tires if you so desire.
  2. HVAC Inspection – Your HVAC systems keep you comfortable in the cold, so we’ll pay special attention to your heater, defrost, steering wheel warmers, and seat warmers.
  3. Brake Inspection – The ice provides new challenges for drivers in the winter, so we want your brakes to be at their best to handle the careful driving required.
  4. Battery Inspection – You never want to be stranded in the cold, so it’s best to make sure nothing’s impeding your battery from functioning at its best during the winter.
  5. Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection – Since the cold can exacerbate cracks and chips, it’s best to get them taken care of before the winter’s ice arrives.
  6. Battery Testing – Your battery can be affected by the cold weather, so we’ll check to make sure you’re not close to needing a new battery. If you are, we can help get you a new battery as well.
  7. Check Windshield Wiper Blades – Vitally important to your visibility are your windshield wiper blades, and we’ll make sure they’re in good shape to take your winter precipitation out of your vision.
  8. Change Washer Fluid – To prevent freezing, you want to change your washer fluid to a winter blend.
  9. Check/Replace Engine Coolant and Antifreeze – The coolant levels should be at the right place so that your engine can avoid overheating and your cooling system can avoid freezing.
  10. Roadside Safety Kit – Preparing a roadside safety kit will keep you and your loved ones safe in case of an emergency.
