Book A Seasonal Car Service: How To Prepare For Car For Winter 2021

If you want to save money and keep your family safe this winter, you need to practice preparedness with proper tire changeovers and seasonal car service.

Whether you decide to go pro or do-it-yourself, a little goes a long way, and your local TIRECRAFT can help.

Read on to learn more about how to prepare your car for winter 2021, or contact your local TIRECRAFT to speak directly with a seasonal car service specialist near you.

Shift Into Winter: Prepare Your Vehicle For Snow, Ice, And Salt

Install Winter Tires

According to research by the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC), more than 8 in 10 Canadians believe that winter tires have saved them from being involved in serious collisions, and OPP studies show that they can reduce braking distances by upwards of 30%.

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Installing a proper set of snows—that is, a set of four matched winter tires that carry the alpine symbol (i.e. the three-peak mountain snowflake or 3PMSF) on the sidewall and have no less than 3.5mm of tread—is the single most important thing you can do to keep your family safe on the road through winter.

If you need a new set, or you’re interested in exploring all-season or all-weather alternatives, get in touch with your local TIRECRAFT. In addition to seasonal car services, we offer all the best winter tire options, and our tire consultants are completely honest and unbiased, with no obligation to push any particular brand or model. We just want to help you find what’s best, and we make that possible using a personalized needs assessment.

And if you’ve already got a set, we can help with your seasonal changeover and storage, too.

Get Your Car Winter-Ready With Seasonal Car Services

Preventative maintenance is key when the winter weather hits. Make sure your battery, brakes, lights and fuses, cooling and heating systems, electrical and exhaust systems, and belts and hoses are good-to-go, top up any fluids, and change your wiper blades to winter blades.

If you prefer to leave it to the pros, we can handle all of these seasonal car services in a single visit, and you might even be eligible for extra savings and prizes through one of our seasonal car service promotions. And if you’d rather do-it-yourself, we’re your one-stop-shop for any tools, equipment, and winter parts that may be needed.
