Football season is almost here, which means it is almost time for tailgating! Tailgating is the perfect way to spend time with your family, while still getting some quality time with your vehicle. There are, of course, a few necessities of tailgating, but it is easy to forget about equipping your car. Don’t worry; the team at Yorba Linda Auto Service has covered it. We are here to help you and your vehicle ready for tailgating:

  1. Plan ahead! It is important to check the weather to see if you need to prepare for any unexpected weather conditions. To keep everyone dry, you might want to include a pop-up tent or bring Panchos for your guests.
  2. Tailgating wouldn’t be complete without the food. It is crucial to keep the food properly stored to prevent it from both spoiling and spilling. We recommend bringing along some paper towels and hand sanitizer to stop messes from spreading and to keep your guests happy.
  3. Throwing back a cold one while enjoying the game is something everyone seems to associate with tailgating, which is why it is incredibly important to appoint a designated driver.
  4. Create a checklist of what you need for your tailgating adventure to be a success and ensure everything can fit safely and securely in your vehicle.
  5. After the fun is over, it would be helpful to perform a thorough examination of your car and the area around your vehicle, specifically looking for any broken bottles or sharp cooking equipment.
