6 ways to keep your car safe this winter.

Ultimate Valet Cambridge top tips for keeping you and your family safe on the road as the weather becomes winterly.

1. Keep your windscreen clean and clear

Visibility can be tricky in the winter with often less than ideal weather conditions. The frosty, foggy mornings are already here.

2. Top up with antifreeze

If the water in your engine cooling system were to freeze during the cold months, you could face some very expensive repairs. To avoid this, it’s important to keep your car topped up with antifreeze. One of the many useful and protective actions it has for your car is to lower the freezing point of water making it less likely for the water to freeze in wintry conditions.

3. Keep your lights clean

With shorter days and longer nights, winter is a time when we use our lights a lot. By keeping your lights as clean as possible then we are doing our best to ensure we can see, and be seen, by others on the road. If your headlamps require restoring due to being cloudy and hazy, then I can remedy that with the Headlamp Restoration service.

4. Keep your wiper blades clean

It’s always a good idea to pull back the windscreen wiper arms to give them a gentle wipe down, and around the wiper mechanism to remove any debris. This will stop grime from being smeared over your freshly cleaned screen and will mean they are better at keeping rain and snow from affecting your visibility.

5. Keep your car germ-free

As it gets colder our immune systems are taking a beating from bugs and viruses that are doing the rounds, muddy shoes are being worn and damp paws are being tracked into the small, enclosed space in our cars. So don’t forget to book an interior valet with us, to keep your interiors looking and feeling fresh and disinfected.

6. Carry the right gear

Winter essentials for the car include an ice scraper and a de-icer to make sure you can properly defrost your windscreen. We also recommend keeping some sunglasses in the car to prevent the low winter sun glare. It’s always best to be prepared.
