Tips for Planning Your Holiday Road Trip

It's a good idea to prepare early for a long road trip. Having a tune-up before you go is a good start, and our mechanics at Chilson-Wilcox are determined to be your local resource before getting behind the wheel. We will check the oil, refill fluids, check the tires, battery, and engine - ensuring that you are in great shape for the long road ahead!

Bring an emergency kit with you in case of an accident or breakdown. It should have a flashlight, blanket, first aid kit, and some basic tools. Make sure your GPS system is working to help with directions. If you don't have GPS or it does not work map out your route ahead of time. Pack snacks and bring bottled water or something to drink for kids and adults. Drive late at night or early in the morning to cut down on some of the heavy traffic when your travel.

With these tips, your road trip should be safe and enjoyable away from the Painted Post, NY area. Have a happy holiday season from our team at Chilson-Wilcox!
