When Do You Make Vehicle ready for Winter?

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.

In majority parts of Canada winter is freezing cold except BC coast where winters are moderate with little snow. During this season, people are most concern about the safety on the road driving with piles of snow. For vehicle owners or drivers, when do you think is the right time to get your vehicle ready for winter? Is it when the snow flies or before it flies?

According to the article I have read from the Insurance Hunter website contributed by Scott Marshall –the Director of Training for Young Drivers of Canada, his guidelines is to put the winter tire before the snow falls. He says that winter tires are not certainly only for snow, in fact it works better when the temperature drops 7 degrees Celsius and colder compared to the all-season tires. In addition, it is a good idea to put them on the month of October then take them off in April. Are you in the same arrangement with the Director? You know that preparation is for your own safety. In preparation for winter vehicle, pre-winter vehicle inspection is the major part that any vehicle owner must be done. To make sure that anything is in working condition, it is advisable to bring the vehicle to the mechanic. In addition to such preparation, it is also a good idea to have your winter survival kit ready in your trunk.

    For the first time in many years,my husband and I are not using winter tires on our car but putting the all-seasons – with few miles on them – to the test. We’ll see how it goes!
