How to Prep Your Accessible Vehicle for the Holidays
The holiday season is a time for family, friends, and feasting. Although this year will be a bit different with all the masks and social distancing because of COVID-19, many people will still travel to visit family members and celebrate together.
With the upcoming holiday hustle-and-bustle and the looming cold winter weather, it’s more important than ever to have an accessible vehicle that you can count on. Follow the steps below to make sure yours is ready to go when you are.
Regular maintenance improves the longevity of your accessible van or SUV. Ensure the tires have adequate pressure and tread. Check fluids such as coolant, oil, and washer fluid. A fresh battery can help a vehicle start better on chilly mornings. The easiest thing to do is to schedule an appointment with the Bussani Mobility, and our expert technicians will take care of everything for you.
Mobility Equipment Maintenance
As with vehicle maintenance, caring for your mobility equipment is essential. Make sure all the bolts and screws are tight. Lubricate hinges so they move freely. Emergency preparedness should include checking straps and placing a belt cutter in an easy-to-reach area. For peace of mind, our qualified professionals will inspect and tune up your mobility equipment.
After vehicle and mobility equipment maintenance are checked off the list, prepare for the holiday season by making the journey more comfortable. Check the cabin air filter and replace it if needed. Store a blanket for personal warmth. Keep the gas tank more than half full for worry-free driving in case of inclement weather or heavy traffic.
With a little preparation, your accessible vehicle can be ready in no time for holiday travel. We encourage you to schedule a routine vehicle maintenance visit now before the holiday rush starts.
