Planning for Your Road Trip
The northern part of the country may be facing snow and wet weather but in the south, mild winters mean you may have some options for getting away on the roads after the Christmas season is over. This is a good time to check over your car and your auto insurance as Sarasota may be your starting point. No matter where you end up you need to know that your car is good order and that your policy will cover you wherever you are.
Make sure your mechanic gives your vehicle a thorough overhaul if you are planning a long trip. You should check the pressure and treads on your tires, including your spare and your tire changing equipment. All the electrical components should be tested and you should plan a grease and oil change. It might be a good idea to take a basic first aid kit, spare coolants and possibly some extra oil just in case.
Give your insurance agent or company a call to make sure that your coverage is adequate for when you are away. The last thing you need is to find out there were exclusions that may affect a claim on your auto insurance. Sarasota, goodbye! The open road is beckoning…
