Living in Selden, NY, you experience the damage that snow and winter weather can cause to your property. At XL Brokerage Inc. we know that your car or vehicle will also take the most damage since they travel the snow-covered roadways daily as you commute to work and other areas in this weather. Below are some of our best tips to protect your car from this damage.
Keep your car washed
That’s right. Throughout the winter season, make sure to periodically have your car washed to remove the salt build-up from the roads. This can rust the undercarriage of your car, depreciating the value of it and also exposing this area to the elements.
Keep it covered
If you are one of our clients who has a garage, make sure to use it through the winter months. When you park your car on the roadways, you are not only covering it in snow but also salt from the snowplow that is traveling through the night to keep the roads cleared. This will minimize any external damage.
Fill your fluids
Before the weather gets too cold, it is essential to fill up on the following:
- Fresh oil change
- Brake fluid
- Power steering fluid
These fluids should be at their proper levels prior to the frigid temperatures so that they can continue to operate your car and do so successfully in the winter weather. If these fluids are too low during the winter, they can keep your car from operating and leave you stranded in the cold.
