From our team to yours, we wish you a safe, happy and healthy 2023! Please consider East Coast Moving 910-755-2058 for all your relocation needs.
1. Test the battery.
2. Check the tire pressure.
As temperatures drop, so will tire pressures—typically by about 1 pound per square inch (PSI) for every 10 degrees. This is why it’s important to check the inflation pressure on your tires regularly during cold weather.
3. Examine antifreeze levels.
Check the coolant in the overflow tank when the engine is cold and turned off. If the level is low, add a 50/50 solution of coolant and water to maintain the necessary antifreeze capability.
4. Apply water repellent to your windshield.
Scraping ice-covered windows can be easier than you think. Apply a water repellent such as Rain-X to all car windows when they’re clean and dry. Then, when you scrape off the ice this winter, it will be much easier.
TIP: Never pour hot water on icy windows—the rapid temperature change could cause them to crack.
5. Clean your headlights.
Cloudy headlights reduce your ability to see and be seen at night, especially in snow and fog. Improve visibility with a headlight restoration kit, which removes the haze from headlight covers. These kits are available at most auto part stores.
6. Let a professional look at your brakes.
Car brakes don’t always give a warning when they’re worn low or experiencing other problems, and you don’t want to discover there’s an issue with them when you’re on an icy road. Have them checked before winter arrives.
7. Prepare an emergency kit.
Always keep an emergency kit stocked for winter weather. Curate your kit to best reflect the climate of your area, or area that you’ll be traveling to. The kit should include:
- Bag of abrasive material (sand, salt, cat litter) or traction mats
- Ice scraper with brush (if applicable)
- Jumper cables
- Gloves, hats and blankets—enough for everyone who may ride in your car
- First-aid kit
- Snow shovel (if applicable)
- Flashlight with extra batteries
- Window washer solvent
- Cloth or roll of paper towels
- Warning devices (flares or triangles)
- Drinking water
- Nonperishable snacks (energy bars or granola bars)
- Extra clothes
- Basic toolkit (screwdrivers, pliers, adjustable wrench)
- Mobile phone preprogrammed with important numbers
East Coast Moving, LLC was happy to see those warmer days in Florida several time in November.
Overall, so many customers are relocating to the northern part of the coast. Mostly to be near family, or for health reasons. They can have that weather from one transplant to others. LOL East Coast Moving still has as many or more, coming to call the Carolinas home. New builds, on waiting lists for apartments and townhomes, storage for the time being; this area is really bustling.
Thank you for your business, since 2003 serving you professionally with passion.
Merry Christmas from the teams at East Coast Moving and Daisy too.
As Nicole makes it’s way to the Carolinas, there are a few things to keep in mind.
We are expecting strong rip currents and beach erosion, and as a result, it’s encouraged to stay away from the water. Gusty winds are also on the radar, so it’s a good idea to to remove any outside furniture or any type of debris that could be impacted by strong winds. Also, to help reduce water damage, ensure your gutters and drains are clear.
With the fall season here, there are a lot of leaves already on the ground. These leaves can easy clog the storm drains if blown into them.
This storm is not expected to impact southeastern North Carolina as much as Hurricane Ian did, but it’s still a strong storm that residents should be mindful of.
Join us for our Annual Christmas Parade on Main Street Shallotte!
