How to Get Your Car Summer Ready

Summers nearly here and any grime or imperfections are sure to show up on any vehicle that isn’t in the best condition. Here are some top tips to get your car summer ready:

Top Up Your Paint Work – Do you have any minor scrapes or scratches on your car? If you do, now is the time to get them taken care of. The summer shine on your car is sure to bring out any marks, making your car look a little battered and damaged.

Change Your Wheels – Putting alloys on your car can make it stand apart from the rest. Depending on the type you can add sophistication, style and grandeur to your car.

Tyres – Checking your tyre pressure when there is a significant weather change is important. If there is a sudden surge in temperature it could cause your tyres to overinflate, this is the same with colder weather, they can underinflate, both putting you and other drivers at risk.

Wipers and Windscreen Wash – As there should be less rain (we hope!) in the summer months, your windscreen is more likely to suffer from dried on dirt. Topping up your windscreen wash and replacing worn wipers can help to remove this more easily.

Air Conditioning – Being in the car on a sweltering day can cause irritation amongst drivers. However if your air conditioning is in good working order you can enjoy the sunshine whilst sitting in a comfortable temperature inside your car. So get your air condition system checked and ensure it’s in full working order.

Wash It – Now this may seem like an obvious thing to do, however many people are guilty of leaving their cars unwashed during the colder months due to the rain and other elements. This allows grime and dirt to build-up on your car, and if dried on through warmer days can be more difficult to remove later on.
