BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — In the latest Guest Post, Jessica Bridges, blogger for Advance Auto Parts, discusses six car care prep tips to ensure safe travels this summer.

“While the days of icy roads and snow tires may be long gone, that doesn’t mean it’s time to get lax about car care. Although summer is synonymous with fun and relaxation, it also means scorching temperatures, afternoon thunderstorms and greater overall wear and tear on cars due to all that increased vacation mileage,” writes Bridges. “Providing proper car care education helps to establish a strong level of trust — which is crucial for securing a strong, repeat customer base.”

In the blog post, Bridges shares the following summer car care tips:

  • Check tires
  • Change oil
  • Keep engine cool
  • Replace wipers
  • Ensure A/C is working
  • Inspect brakes.

“If you offer repair services, you might think a more expensive repair bill is better for your bottom line. However, by educating your customers on these simple prep tips, you’re actually setting your business up for more profits by establishing trust — which in turn builds a stronger, repeat customer base,” explains Bridges. “Customers will appreciate your honesty, and then maybe even spread the word to their friends.”
