On Long Island, winter snow storms happen well into spring. If you're out on the roads, you'll want to be prepared if you find yourself stuck in a storm no one knew was coming. Or, let's face it, with the uncertainty of weather reports, a storm you didn't believe was coming, because you've been lied to about the severity of a snowstorm before. Maybe you're driving carefully down an icy road and end up stuck in a huge snow bank.

Anything can happen! Regardless of the reasons, you might find yourself stuck in cold weather conditions whilst in your car. Don't get caught without the necessities.

What do you need in your car for the winter season?

Some basic items, like an ice scraper and a first aid kit. However, many people forget some out of the box items. We've created a checklist for our clients, and now we're sharing it with everyone. I'm sure it doesn't cover everything, but it does give a great start to prepping your automobiles for the winter months (and on Long Island, the spring months, too.)
  • First Aid Kit
  • Water
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries for your flashlight
  • Flares
  • Cell Phone Charger
  • Tire Chains
  • Snowbrush/Ice Scraper
  • Blanket
  • Snacks
  • Gloves & Boots
  • Jumper Cables
  • Sand/Kitty Litter (for traction under your tires)
  • Full Tank of gas, or at least a half a tank of gas, before setting out on your car trip

Before hitting the road on a long road trip, contact us to go over your auto insurance policy. You don't want to be caught far away from home with an auto insurance policy that is expired, or doesn't give your the proper coverage on your car and driver.
