Spring is right around the corner and road trips are getting planned! Spring cleaning is more than just getting your home ready, it also means it's time to get your car ready for spring with these 8 steps.
Think of it as a checklist!
2. Check your tire pressure. Similarly, low tire pressure is never something to let sit. Whether your car’s tire pressure light has been flashing or not, it’s always smart to check your tires before you start on your springtime road trips. Many car mechanics or gas stations will do a free tire pressure check. But if not, the cost is extremely minimal.
3. Get your windows tinted. Before you head out on the road for that spring break trip, make sure your windows are tinted. Not only does it provide you with a great driving experience, it will reduce your risk of break-ins while on your trip. Additionally, tinted windows protect your skin and car furnishing from otherwise harmful UV rays.
4. Buy a remote car starter. It’s never too late to buy a remote car starter.Remote starts allow you to unlock your car and get the AC going, so you never have to stand out in the heat fumbling for keys. Some remote starters even come with GPS capabilities, which let you track your car in case of a break-in.
5. Clean your car. Wash it down on the outside, and vacuum it on the inside. Winter is a long season. So, debris tends to accumulate both outside and inside the car. Start the spring season fresh with a fresh feeling car. Call us for a list of recommended dealers
6. Spruce up the paint. If you have any scratches on your car, now is the time to fill them in. Some marks you can touch up yourself if you have the right tools. Otherwise, take your car in to your local mechanic for a full paint fix up. It’s best to have the paint fixed now while the snow is off the car, but before the pollen starts to settle. Do you have any small dents? We do paint-less dent removals at Premier Tint Pros.
7. Work out the kinks. Now is also a great time to finally get to all the small things in your car that need tending to. Things like: cracks in the mirrors, a broken radio, ripped up upholstery, etc.
8. Be sure the AC is working. The last thing you want is for the spring and summer heat to hit and your AC is broken. Things often have a way of breaking when they aren’t being used. After a long winter of only using the heat, check that your car’s air conditioning is working properly with no leaks or rumblings.
