Road trip safety for your long-distance move

One of the main factors for a safe road trip is the condition of your vehicle. Therefore, it’s a good idea to have it properly serviced prior to your move to make sure your car is “fit” for the trip: Make an appointment for a proper inspection by a professional car mechanic to make sure that

  • the motor runs smoothly
  • the brakes are fine
  • the motor oil is fresh and clean
  • the tires are in good shape, etc.

Even if your last car inspection has been very recent, there are some last-minute checks you should perform before getting on the road:

  • tire pressure (check the spare tire as well!)
  • level of oil, water, windshield wiper fluid
  • completeness of the first aid and emergency kit in case of an accident or breakdown
