6️⃣ THINGS you need to CHECK before driving away into the distance on your ROAD TRIP adventure 🚙
🙋🏻♀️ First of all - I hope you had an amazing 🐣 Easter break and I assume you are now recovering in a 🍫 🥚 coma!
💫 EDUCATION & SAFETY💫 are key elements of what The Family Travel Company delivers.
👩🏻⚕️Conducting a HEALTH CHECK on your vehicle - not just before you leave for the trip, but when you return, is ESSENTIAL!
👩🏻🎓 This is just 1️⃣ area of education where we support your safe travel when considering a Road Trip.
🐣🚗 Have you just come back from an Easter Road Trip? Or, are you still away? Did you conduct these below checks?
🚗 TYRES ➡️ Tread Depth / Condition & Pressure. Don’t forget about about the spare ... (make sure you have one!!)
👩🏻🔧 TOOLS 🧰 ➡️ On the subject of spares. Remember, you need (the right) tools to carry out a tyre change.
❓How confident are you changing a tyre...
👀 Check OIL Level. That’s right, now is the time to find out where the lever is to ‘pop the bonnet’ and get your hands a little dirty!
😎 Check COOLANT Level. You already have the bonnet up, so it would be rude not to! Plus you don’t want your vehicle overheating 🚗 🥵
💡 LIGHTS. This takes 2️⃣! 👫! Indicators, brake lights, headlights, hazard lights ... every light!
Whilst you are behind the wheel - do a quick test of your wipers too!
🧼 How CLEAN is your vehicle? Can you see out of your windows? Have you got any windscreen washer fluid left? Is your number plate visible? What about the inside of your car....?
🤔 Are you unsure how to carry out some of these checks? Don’t worry - I understand. 👫
This has become second nature to me due to requirements in my previous careers. However, I still get a professional 👨🏼🔧 to do a quick check if I am embarking on a loooooooong journey! 🚗🚗🚗🚗🚗🚗
Over the next few weeks I will going into more detail about each 1️⃣ - the WHY & the HOW.
Stay tuned! And most importantly stay SAFE! ✊🏻
