Is it time for you to head back into work? Due to Governor Kemps decision to start phase 1 reopening of businesses, the roads will likely become more crowded. If you have been working from home for the past several weeks, it will certainly feel weird to be back on the roads. If you haven’t been driving your car due to being quarantined there are some important things you need to check in order to ensure your car is ready to hit the roads again:
- Cars can typically sit without being driven for two weeks without developing issues. But if you haven’t driven it more than just a couple weeks here’s some things you should check on: battery, tires, gas tank, and unwanted animals.
- When a car has not been driven for weeks, batteries will slowly lose their charge. This will give you issues when it’s time to start your car.
- Tires can easily develop flat spots when they are unmoved for an extended period of time. If your tires are looking a little low, you can quickly have them filled with air for free at any Discount Tires location.
- A gas tank that isn’t fully filled with fuel will eventually collect moisture which can lead to a corroded gas tank.
- Unwanted visitors may take up residence in the nooks and crannies of your car if it’s been sitting in the same spot for an extended period of time. You can easily check by looking around the interior and exterior of your car.
- When returning to the road be aware of any new construction since you’ve been quarantined. Also, give yourself a little extra time getting to work on your first day back.
