How To Prepare Your Vehicle For Holiday Travel

It’s almost time to hit the road and go see the family for the holidays. To prepare your vehicle for holiday travel, we thought it would be wise to provide a checklist showing how you can prepare for smooth, stress-free driving. 


We hope you enjoy this helpful pre-trip checklist.


  • Check your tires for proper tread and full inflation.

  • Pack all the tools you would need to change a flat tire.

  • If you’re planning to drive in the snow, be sure to bring tire chains.

  • Make sure your battery is fully charged and shows no signs of corrosion.

  • If your brakes are squeaking or squealing, have them checked.

  • Is your car in need of oil change service? Get it done before you go.

  • Do you have an emergency kit?

  • If you’re driving in snow or plan to travel on isolated roads, do you have enough water, snacks, and warm blankets to keep you safe if you’re stranded?

  • Is your Check Engine light on? If yes, make sure your auto mechanic checks it out.

  • Have you packed all of your holiday gifts for your family and friends?

  • Did you make sure to pack your medications, underwear, extra shoes, and some gloves in your luggage?


Unfortunately, CARSTAR Robert’s Collision no longer offers these auto repair services, for we have transitioned completely to exclusive auto body repair. Still, when you make sure your vehicle is prepared for holiday travel, it reduces your risk of getting in an accident.


If, however, you do end up getting in a collision at some point during your holiday travel -- including a trip to the mall to buy presents and you acquire a few door dings -- we invite you to CARSTAR Robert’s Collision for auto body repair.
