Winter Car Essentials

As the snow, rain, sleet, slush, hail, ice and other winter weather inches closer and closer, its important to make sure that you and your car are prepared in case you happen to be on the road when the storm hits. The last thing you want is to be stuck in the snow or stranded on the road in the middle of nowhere. To avoid this from happening, there are a few essentials you should consider keeping in your car this winter.

Jumper Cables

No matter what time of year, you should always keep jumper cables in your car. This won’t only be benefit you if your battery dies, but you may be able to help a stranger revive their car battery as well.

Portable Battery

Whether you need to call for help, look up directions to the nearest gas station, or want to waste time on social media until a tow truck shows up, your phone needs to be charged. A portable battery will allow you a full phone battery life and more to get yourself out of a sticky situation.

Blanket

If you get into an accident, stuck in the snow, or your battery dies, you and your passengers will need to stay warm until help arrives. Keeping an extra blanket or two in your vehicle will give you an extra layer of warmth while you wait.

Flashlight

A flashlight can help you see in the dark as well as alert oncoming traffic that you’re on the side of the road or to signal for assistance.

Small Shovel

Keeping a small, portable shovel in your trunk can really come in handy if your car gets stuck in the snow. You can use it to dig out under your tires to free your car.

First Aid Kit

This should be in your car at all times. A first aid kit can provide a quick fix to a small cut or help with more serious injuries until proper help arrives.

I got my windshield replaced recently and it took less than an hour. Then as I was driving home the rear view mirror fell off. It kept doing it so I rode back and they replaced it. No haggling or anything. With this kind of service I will keep coming back. I am a repeat customer as they do not dissapoint!

Decent prices on the parts you need. Honest and informative workers. Reasonable and efficient service. They’re also pretty well stocked and will likely have the part you need for just about any replacement or repair. If not, they’ll order it for you and usually have it in a day or so. Overall, no real complaints on my end. I’d recommend this place.
