Before moving, you should consider getting your car serviced and tuned up one week prior to the date of your move. Even if you’re moving a shorter distance, your car will likely be driven quite a bit and may be loaded up. Plus after your move to your new location, you’ll likely have a lot errands to run to change your address, stock your cabinets and purchase other supplies. In addition, it may take some time for you to find a new mechanic so it’s one less thing to worry about once you move.
Get a tune up, oil change, top off all fluids and make sure your tires are full and in good condition. There is nothing worse than packing up your car and breaking down on the way to a new home.
