Crazy Cheap Cars is ready to get your car prepped for winter!

It seems like beautiful fall weather just started, but it won't be long before snow arrives! At the Crazy Cheap Cars service center we want to make sure you're ready to take on slick roads in Batavia NY in the coming months.

Get Winter Tires

One of the first things you can do is order snow tires if you don't already have a set. These help you grip the road better in the winter, they have a different tread pattern than your all seasons, and their rubber reacts better in cooler temps. They are more expensive, but they are a worthwhile investment when you consider the enhanced control and peace of mind. If you already have a set or once yours have arrived, schedule an appointment with our service center team for a winter tire changeover. And we suggest doing so sooner than later!

Check Your Battery

A dead battery in the winter can be downright dangerous, and it's a situation that can be avoided. Our service center team can assess your battery's health, and if you need one they can order the right option for your vehicle. You should start getting your battery inspected once it's older than three years, but here are some signs that your battery might be nearing its end:

  • Slow engine start
  • Dim headlights
  • Flickering cabin lights

This simple service can lessen any unfortunate surprise when you're in Lockport NY.

Build Your Emergency Kit

There are things we can help you with, but there are some steps you can take to help ensure winter safety this year. A big one is making sure you have an emergency kit in case of a roadside mishap in Lancaster NY or when vising relatives out of state. You can buy pre-made kits or make your own with a few purchases and items you might already have around your home. Your kit should have the following:

  • Collapsible shovel and extra ice scrapper
  • Kitty litter or traction pads
  • Flashlight or headlamp
  • Matches and whistles
  • Old blankets or an emergency blanket
  • First Aid Kit
  • Extra gloves, hat, socks, and hand warming packs
  • Jumper cables or portable battery pack
  • Gatorade and high-energy snacks like jerky and granola bars
  • Emergency cash and pre-loaded debit card
