Getting Ready | For Winter Breakdowns

Post image of Getting Ready | For Winter Breakdowns

I know I keep saying it, but winter is approaching. In fact, some would argue that whilst some of the leaves on the trees are still green, the temperature indicates that perhaps winter has already arrived. We still have a little light on the way to work, but the evenings are now pitch black, and it is only a matter of time before we wake up to frigid frosts and a dingy dark world. We all rush to book breakdown cover to look after us as the light fades, and pack blankets in our cars just in case.

Of course, the risk of all this winter weather for our cars is marked. The wet can cold increases the rusting on cars, especially for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have a brand new automotive beauty. In addition, the snow, ice and rain make driving conditions nothing short of perilous, and the rate of crashes and problems flies sky high. Electrical problems are rife, and crawling along in slow traffic jams whilst trying to get home is enough to push plenty of cars over the edge.

Emergency Kit

As well as needing an emergency kit in your car to enable you to cope with all the potential breakdowns in the depths of winter, you really ought to make sure that you have some form of breakdown cover. If you don’t then you will have to fork out the money for a call out, and finding someone out of hours can make life a whole lot more difficult. Remember that a car, although a luxury product, isn’t infallible – and in winter you will pay the price if you don’t have some form of protection for when the almost inevitable car issues start to happen.

OK, so this may not be the most positive article. But I am talking about winter, and nothing goes hand in hand with winter more than the British ability to moan about the weather. The upside, of course, is that we are prepared – so when we do find that the cold has made our battery die, we know what to do!

    Breakdown insurance and even a car warranty can prove to be extremely useful as the winter months roll in. I also carry some additional road salt in my boot to put under my tyres if I need additional grip before moving out.

    I also have this kit in my car in case of emergencies. Also, you will want to add extra pair of clothing, blankets and energy bars to that kit. You never know when you will be stranded inside your car during the winter season. Having this on hand would make any emergency situation a little bit easier to handle.
