Posted by All Solutions Insurance | Posted On July 17th, 2015 | General, road trip, Road Trip Preparation

Its summer time, the perfect season for a road trip! Schools out, its time to hit the road, but before you pack you bags and hit the highway, make sure you are prepared. A road trip checklist necessary to make sure you get to your destination and back without any problems. Here are some simple steps to prepping your ride:

  • “Get a full inspection. There’s no way around this one. The many moving (and not moving) parts of a car should be checked before any extended drive, especially if the weather is particularly hot or cold. Unless you’re a car expert in your own right, be sure to bring your vehicle to a reputable pro. A tire pressure check, oil change, and batteroad-trip2ry test are some of the things that need to happen before your vehicle gets the green light.
  • Have a lifeline. While changing a flat tire is an essential skill, you could end up in a situation that requires a helping hand, such as changing two flat tires at once. Check with your auto insurance company and see if you have or can sign up for roadside assistance. If you’re concerned about the expense, you can always cancel it after your trip.”

Some essentials you may need for your road trip:

  • a map! whether its on your phone, or printed out, make sure  you know where your going and plan your route out
  • first aid kit
  • road-trip-signyour drivers license, a copy of your insurance and your car registration. Putting these three things in a ziplock bag may help keep you organized on your adventure
