Are your car and tyres ready for winter?
I know, I’ve mentioned the ‘w’ word – but it is coming, and with the season change the weather conditions change. Roads will become slicker, icier and more precarious which is why you need to make sure your car is ready to handle whatever the British weather throws at it. This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about car care – as its an integral part of us travelling around the country vlogging & blogging, it really is something I take seriously.
|Are you ready? How about your car?|
Tyres are something that can be neglected.
Winter means new coats, hats, scarves, blizzard proof wellies.. But what about the car? We might get treads on our feet for walking, but when driving place to place we need to make the same considerations. Making sure you have new tyres in the coming months means your car is more adapted to the slippery, unpredictable roads that the new season brings and it doesn’t always mean visiting a garage and waiting around trying to make sure oil doesn’t get on your clothing!
|You can shop for tyres online now – no more hunting around backstreet garages!|
When I was younger, I used to go everywhere with my Father who was a mechanic. That meant sometimes heading out to garages in Bradford and hunting for tyres – something I remember as being a dirty, long job. I can still smell the oily, greasy smell of the garages and taste the cheap hot chocolate that they served!
Luckily for me as I’ve gotten older, you can sit back on the comfort of your own sofa and buy tyres online now. Point-S.co.uk allows you to shop for your summer, winter or all year round tyres from the comfort of your own home.
The site is incredibly easy to use – simple forms such as the one above allow you to find the perfect tyres for your vehicle and a local garage to get them fitted. So much better than trawling around your town or city looking for the best place to go, right? You don’t have to go elsewhere to have them fitted either – you can have them delivered when and where you want them to be delivered.
Not only do you save time as you can just point and click, you save money by looking for the best deal for you – not to mention the potential petrol you save if there’s a place local that you don’t know about!
So, there really is no excuse for not being prepared this winter – why not double check your tyres and make sure you’re covered?
