PA Commercial Insurance: Winterize your Vehicles!
The heart of winter is right around the corner, and we all know how difficult it can be to drive in inclement weather. As a business owner with PA commercial insurance, it’s important to winterize your company’s vehicles to ensure the safety of your employees and avoid damages. Here are some tips:
- Make sure your insurance is up to date. Check your commercial auto insurance policy to ensure all your vehicles are covered for accidents and damages.
- Perform necessary maintenance. Make sure your inspections are up to date, your oil has been changed, and there are no damages to the vehicles that need to be repaired. Also install new windshield wipers, refill washer fluid, and change to snow tires.
- Create emergency kits. Make an emergency kit for each vehicle. Include flares, blankets, a flashlight, jumper cables, energy bars, and bottles of water. Also make sure each employee carries a shovel and an ice scraper in their trunk.
- Always be prepared. The above steps will help you be prepared, but you should also always keep track of the weather. Know when it’s supposed to snow, and try to get your driving done before then. Make sure your employees know where they’re going, too. If necessary, provide them with GPS systems so they don’t get lost during bad weather.
Being prepared for winter weather is the most important thing when it comes to staying safe. Check your PA commercial insurance policy to make sure all of your vehicles are covered. Safe driving!
