Winter... it's about being prepared

With the recent downfall of snow blanketing most of the country we thought we'd share with you some of the things St Albans Car and Van Hire do to ensure our hire vehicles are safe and fit for winter roads.

Way back in September we began adding winter screen wash and anti-freeze to all our hire vehicles, then as the weeks go on and the days get shorter we add more screen wash so that it gets more and more concentrated ready for any plummeting temperatures. Saving you from potential frozen windscreens!

Every time a vehicle is returned we run through an extensive checklist to make sure (amongst many other things) that oil levels, water levels, tyre pressures, screen wash levels, tool kits, lights and spare wheels are all in perfect working order.

We also supply and leave an ice scraper in all our vehicles throughout the winter so that you're never caught out.

We would always advise customers to allow extra time for driving in poor weather conditions, and to take a warm coat and other sensible provisions with you whenever making a journey.

It pays to be prepared, you'll probably never have any trouble on the roads, but the day that you do you'll be pleased to have planned.
