What to check before leaving for a road trip
24/05/2017
Carpooling is a great experience!

Either if you offer a lift club service or just want to share a ride with someone, hitting the road is always an amazing experience. 
Here the official JumpIn Rides list of what to check before going on a trip with your car! Follow those safety checks when you offer a lift and ensure the driver is doing them when you look for a ride.

Engine oil: Just pull out the dip stick and wipe it off on a clean, lint-free rag, then insert it again inside and check at which level is the oil. This will tell you whether you need or not to add more oil.
Brake and coolant fluids: check it, although people usually replace them every 2 years. Water for the windshield wipers: it gets dusty on the road.
Wash the car: especially if you are driving at night, a dirty window reduces visibility.
Lights: check if they all work correctly.
Emergency equipment: Spare tire, warning triangle, map and a telephone are a must-have.
Tyres: check pressure and tread (should be no less than 1.6mm)

If you are swinging by Cape Town, try , our trusted supplier. They provide affordable tyres at a discounted rate for JumpIn Rides users. Just set location and time and they will change your tyres without requiring you any effort. All old tyres are either recycled or removed to Redisa.
