Take Your Car for a Walk
First I want to thank you for your business. I also want to share a concern with you and update you on how we are continuing to provide our customers with the automotive service that they need.
The past several days have been wet ones. Heavy rains create slippery roads causing accidents. A lot of those accidents seem to be cars sliding into a pole or a tree.
I suppose it is possible that poles and trees become magnets when it rains, sucking metal cars into them. Although it is more likely that excessive speed or worn tires are a large part of cars spinning or sliding off the road into those poles or trees.
My concern is, a lot of cars are sitting in the driveway. As a result maintenance items may be forgotten or overlooked. Items like tire pressure for example can have a huge impact on the way the car handles. Especially in wet weather.
Cars are designed to run. When they are left to sit for long periods of time things can deteriorate . Tires can get extremely low on air pressure, brakes can get rusty, batteries can get weak, and the gasoline in the fuel tank can go bad.
It would be a good idea to get you and the car out of the house for a few moments once a week. Check the air pressure in the tires. Check the fluid levels under the hood and take the car out for a walk around the neighborhood.
No need to stop anywhere, and of course observe all of the social distancing recommendations, just simply put down the phone, turn on your favorite music, do the speed limit and take the car for a drive.
If you find something on the car needs attention, we are open. We are fully staffed and are able to offer all normal services. Please know that our hours are from 9am to 5 pm Monday thru Friday. Currently we are accepting drop off appointments only and access to the building is restricted to staff only. Drop off and pick up of cars is done thru a walk up window in the front of our store.
If you need our services just give us a call. In the mean time take that car for a short ride and watch out for those magnetic poles and trees on rainy days.
