How to Prep Your Car for a Road Trip

It’s summertime and you know what that means… road trip season! For most of us, it’s been a while since we’ve been able to travel. That’s why now is the perfect time to hit the road and explore national and provincial parks, go camping, or visit relatives and friends around the country. Road trips are fun when they’re running smoothly, but they can also be stressful when things don’t go to plan. It’s important to prepare ahead of time to reduce the stress of travelling. You can follow these 5 simple steps to ensure your car is prepared to handle your journey safely.

1. Get your car cleaned

You’ll likely be spending hours in your car, so having it detailed before hitting the road will make your trip much more enjoyable. Nobody wants to be caught being the driver and having your friend or relative dodging the Tim's cups and other clutter as they get in the vehicle! It’s also just a good idea to remove any unnecessary items from your car to make more space and reduce the weight of your vehicle.
