Five Ways to Prepare for a Road Trip
Five Ways to Prepare For a Road Trip.
1. Clean your car before and during your trip.
Go ahead, leave the napkins and gum wrappers under your seat. Don't sweat the dog hair in the back bed ... but you'll be sorry. A few days into your trip, when the old gum wrappers are joined by new fast food wrappers when dog hair starts sticking to your luggage and your gear, you'll rue the day you failed to Stop by Koons Automotive to get your car detailed before your trip!
2. Check your vehicle.
About a week before you leave for a long road trip, have Koons Automotive check your car's fluid levels, brakes, tires and anything else that could cause problems. Be sure your spare tire is fully inflated and that you have jumper cables and extra wiper fluid on hand.
3. Have a loose plan.
Delays are the one thing that you can count on when driving significant distances. If you overschedule your road trip, know that things aren't always going to go your way.
4. Get off the highways
Unless you have a specific destination and a strict schedule, there is little point in hitting the roads to see the country if you don't spend some time on the back roads.
5. Have your documents
If you are traveling without current documentation of license, registration or insurance, you could be in for a world of hurt if you are pulled over for any reason. Stop by Koons Automotive and our on-site insurance reps from Next Level Insurance can make sure you are covered for anything that might occur.
