How to look after your car during lockdown


If you’re working from home during the COVID-19 lockdown, here are some tips to keep your car healthy and ready to face the rigours of everyday driving when we emerge from isolation.



Try to rotate your wheels at least once a week, just to make sure they don’t deform from being in the same position all the time. Also check if
your tread depth is up to the required standard.



Your battery may discharge power if you’re not using your car. If you can, purchase a trickle charger to constantly keep your battery topped up.
