If you’re going on a trip that doesn’t fit your routine, inform someone and let them know your route and expected arrival time.

There are some basics to do before you start driving in winter. Remove snow, ice and frost from your car to improve both your visibility and to ensure other participants see you. Don’t forget to clean your licence plate – it must be visible at all times to both other drivers and the police. If you want to make sure your car is properly cleaned, book professional detailing at Approval Team. Warm up your vehicle – it will help reduce condensation on windows and allow your engine to run more smoothly. Never do the warm-up in a closed garage – vehicle exhaust fumes can lead to coughing and breathlessness and being under long exposure is a health risk. Gently detach windshield wipers from the surface before turning them on. Activating them before checking if they are frozen to the windshield could cause damage and breakage. After checking all of the above, you should be ready to hit the road. Ensure that you are well rested and alert so you and other traffic participants can stay safe on the road. And, you can always get a new ride from Approval Team! Apply today and find a safe and reliable pre-owned car that fits your needs!
