November is a transitional month for my company. Weddings in New England slow down and we start preparing for all the holiday events in December. My staff and I go through all the equipment, lighting, photo booths and decor to make sure it is ready for an intense three weeks of daily use. One of the top items on our prep lists are the vehicles we use. Nothing worse than getting a call on a busy Saturday in December from staff that their battery is dead or locks froze. Can’t do the gig if the transportation breaks down.
Here is a quick list of ten things you should do to your vehicle before turkey day.
1. Check your battery. …
2. Change your wiper blades and refill your wiper fluid. …
3. Consider getting snow tires or chains.
4. Check your tire pressure and rotate. …
5. Check your four-wheel drive. ..
6. Check your anti-freeze mixture. …
7. Stock your car with emergency supplies. …
8. Change the oil and adjust the viscosity.
