How A Pre-Trip Checklist Can Make Your Holiday Travels Better

We know you're eager to hit the road to enjoy your time off for the holidays, but before you do, you should make sure both you and your vehicle are completely ready. That means planning your trip out and making sure you know your route and knowing when to stop, and having a list of things both to do and take on the road.

  • Have a plan to stop along the way not only to refill your fuel but also to let people stretch and take restroom breaks
  • Minimize distractions by having your passengers occupied, but pull over if there are issues that need to be addressed
  • Have an emergency roadside kit
  • Have very warm attire, blankets, and even food along in case you end up stranded and have to stay in the car a while
  • Stay in a hotel if you're going to be traveling late so that you don't fall asleep on the road during late night hours

You want to make sure the risk of emergency roadside stops is minimal, so that's why you should have our dealership service your vehicle before you go. Our mechanics at Hansel Ford perform all the checks necessary to keep you safe on the road and will perform maintenance if your vehicle is at risk of breaking down. Bring your vehicle to our Santa Rosa, CA location prior to your departure, and we'll get to work on it. On behalf of our dealership, have a safe trip and Happy Holidays!
