Pep Boys Provides Useful tips to Help You Stay Safe While Driving This Holiday Season
Tip Number One: Perform Travel Car Care Before Driving Home For The Holidays
Philadelphia, PA - As many plan to travel for the holidays and put in countless hours in the car running from store to store buying gifts, it's easy to forget how important it is to stay safe while driving. Pep Boys' (NYSE: PBY) car care experts are here to help with their roadside emergency guide, which can easily be found here.
The Pep Boys online guide contains a complete list of items to keep in your car for any roadside emergency. If you don't want to buy all the items separately, Pep Boys offers an easy and convenient pre-packaged emergency kit that contains all the items you need.
The online road safety guide also instructs drivers on what items to keep in the car to stay safe this time of year. With one of the most common roadside emergencies being a flat tire, tire sealant is a great item to keep handy. This temporary solution can get you to a safe place to wait for help or to change your tire. If you get stranded, keeping your car visible to oncoming traffic with road flares is critical; road flares and reflective triangles are great items to keep in your trunk to provide an added measure of safety. And if you ever need a tow, call 1-800-PEP-BOYS, an easy and inexpensive way to get your car off the road and to one of over 6,000 Pep Boys service centers nationwide. Pep Boys will dispatch a premier towing service to your location and tow your vehicle to a Pep Boys for possible service regardless of mileage traveled.
If you'd like more guidance in person, Pep Boys' ASE-certified technicians can help you decide what to keep in your car in case of an emergency this time of year. Pep Boys encourages you to visit a local store and talk to a technician with any questions you may have about winter car care. For your convenience, Pep Boys is open seven days a week and is open at 5 a.m., nationwide on Black Friday, November 28 to assist you with your car care needs.
