Below are our tips on protecting your Car this winter.

1. Wax your car

Salt and grit flying up from the road and from the lorries can damage your car’s paintwork so applying a good wax protection to your paint work before gritting season begins will help to keep your car’s paint in good condition.

You should also get a bodywork professional garage to seal the undercarriage of your car to help protect it from the impact of corrosive salt and grit.

2. Clean your tyres regularly

Your tyres will pick up salt and grit in the treads and then every time you drive they will throw it up underneath your car, into the bodywork, so keep your tyres clean throughout the winter so your car is not damaging itself on every drive.

3. Wash your car regularly

Make sure you wash your car regularly throughout the winter, particularly under the wheel arches and the underside of the car, to keep it clear from any build-up of salt and grit from the roads.

4. Avoid driving through puddles

If you can avoid driving through large puddles in the winter as they will gather the salt from the gritting lorries as well as dirt and debris, all of which could damage your car’s body work.

5. Don’t drive through road gritting times

If bad weather is predicted you can guarantee the salt and grit lorries will be out in force the night before so try to avoid driving during these times otherwise you will be exposing your car to fresh salt unduly.

6. Clean your car of snow

If you are not driving your car regularly, keep it clear of any snow build up both on the car and underneath it, otherwise you will end up with car problems and it probably won’t start. Try covering your car or keeping it in a garage if it’s not going to be driving during the winter.
