Now that the third lockdown is here, the chances are that you won’t be driving your car as much as you were before.

As such, it is imperative to make sure you leave it in a condition that’s as safe to drive as possible for when you next come to use it.

From checking the tyres to ensuring it’s stocked up on antifreeze, there are a number of things you can do to keep your car in its best possible condition.

Join us as we run through what some of these key things are, helping you use your time in lockdown in a proactive manner.

Wash Your Car

While your car is sat dormant on a nearby road or driveway over the coming months, leaves and other types of debris are likely to make it look a lot less spick and span than normal.

Therefore, it’s important to check on it regularly throughout the lockdown, taking the time to remove any debris that you can see both externally and under the hood.

Likewise, why not get the power washer out and give your car a good clean?

This will not only ensure it is looking great when you next come to use it, but it will also give you something to do to pass the time while stuck at home.

Check Your Tyres

When it comes to leaving your car undriven for a prolonged period of time, there is a high likelihood that your tyres could deflect slightly.

As such, it’s imperative to keep an extra eye on them throughout the lockdown.

After all, the last thing you want is to come across a flat tyre when you’re finally able to get away on that post lockdown road trip you’ll have been longing for.
