3 Simple Lockdown Car Care Tips
Battery: Stop your battery going flat by keeping it charged. All you need to do is start the engine and keep it ticking over for around 15 minutes once a week. Remember to do this outside of a garage (if you have one) and never leave your car unattended.
Brakes: If your vehicle is parked up for a long time it's possible that the brakes could seize up. So, while the engine is running simply move the car forwards and backwards a few times and use the brake.
Tyres: Check the condition of your tyres and the pressures, inflating them if they need extra air. Look out for damage, like cuts or bulges.
