Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Reports show that nonfatal vehicle collisions increase during adverse weather, especially snow and ice. Compound that with December having some of the darkest days of the year, drivers need to take extra precautions, not only with their driving habits, but with vehicle maintenance as well. In fact, every year there is an approximately $ 42 billion economic toll due to winter weather related accidents.
Drivers who do find themselves in a fender bender during the holiday season can find used and discounted auto body parts at Automotix.net, a site that connects buyers with sellers of used auto parts. They also sell rebuilt engines and transmissions with one year warranty and 90 day price match.
People should first try to stay off the road if possible during high risk times, but if you do go out, make sure to check the simple things, like your windshield fluid and that your headlight covers are clear, recommends Gavin Heathcock, Director of Business Development and Sales at Automotix. Little problems can lead to big trouble on the road.
Auto owners should take their car to a trustworthy mechanic for a more in depth look at the engine and steering system. If the car needs more in depth preventive care, work with the mechanic to find quality used parts and aftermarket upgrades from retailers like Automotix.net to keep the vehicle on the road. During this season, buying everything brand new gets expensive, especially since people are on tighter budgets because of their holiday shopping. Using certified used parts will ensure quality and safety for you and your family while saving money, says Heathcock.
Another winter necessity Automotix connects drivers to is affordable auto insurance. With the increase of collisions over the dreary winter months, drivers need to check that their coverage and deductibles are appropriate for the value of their car. Carrying full coverage can save money and the car if owners lose control on icy patches.
Auto owners interested in doing their own maintenance can find repair manuals and can ask auto experts questions. Automotix ensures fast nationwide delivery for parts, and international shipping is also available.
