Cheap Vehicle Leasing UK Guide to Winter Driving

As a provider of cheap vehicle leasing UK, cars and driving are the two main things that we love! We are coming up to one of the most challenging times of year to drive – Winter – even if you don’t live somewhere which is prone to heavy snow. Normal winter weather such as rain, ice and going dark early can make driving more hazardous wherever you live. But there are a few things you can do in order to make sure you get home safely in the winter months.

Prepare Your Car

Whether you own your vehicle or have got it through a car leasing UK company, you should stay on top of servicing it. You can do a lot of the simpler things yourself, such as brake fluid level, oil level, and screen wash level. It is also a good idea to top up your coolant with an anti-freeze to help prevent any of your pipes cracking when the temperature drops as well.

Cold weather is also a bit of an enemy of car batteries as well, and if your car struggles to start on cold mornings it could be a sign that your battery is on its way out. You should also keep a close eye on your screen wash levels throughout the winter, as you will be using more on a daily basis and so you should make sure it is topped up regularly and that your windscreen wipers are replaced quickly if they start to smear.

 

Carry an Emergency Kit

As well as carrying a first aid kit in your car, it is also worth adding some emergency kit for your car in the winter months as well. This could include: a tow rope, a torch, a shovel and maybe even a spare coat or blanket in case you find yourself stranded. De-icer is always useful in winter as well, as it will make clearing your windscreen much easier first thing in the morning.

Change Your Tyres

If really bad weather is forecast, then you may want to think about changing your tyres to winter tyres as well – they often cost no more than a normal tyre.

These are just some of the tips we have for driving in Winter, more to follow next month. In the meantime, if you want to check out the best car lease deals UK then contact us on 01625 704 396 or send us an email to sales@ambervehicles
