You’ve heard people say, “It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity”? Well, here in North Carolina, it is both! Summertime temperatures soar, and humidity levels keep the sweat pouring. We know how to beat the heat: we drink plenty of water, exercise indoors or during the coolest parts of the day, and, best of all, head to the beach or the mountains to find relief. But what about our cars? Extreme heat can cause damage to our vehicles - especially when we’re putting extra miles on with road trips. How do you protect your ride?

In North Carolina, you need more than a tank of gas before you head out to work, to run errands, or to drive to your favorite trail or fishing spot. You also need auto insurance. State Motor Vehicle Law mandates that all drivers maintain minimum liability coverage of $30,000 bodily injury/each person and $60,000 total for all people, $25,000 for property damage, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. 

Being a safe, cautious driver is not enough; you need the coverage, and the peace of mind, that comes with auto insurance. If you are involved in an accident, you need to know it can help protect you from financial worries. 

Summer brings so much beautiful weather. It warms up, the flowers bloom, and we can ditch our winter coats. Yet spring also brings storms. They can be both beautiful and awesome to witness, enthralling, and destructive in turn. From hailstorms to tornadoes, spring can turn from beauty to damage in the span of a few minutes. You have a good handle on how to protect you and your family, even your home. How do you protect your car from storms, though?

If you are looking to get out of spring cleaning duty in the house, we have a professional tip: get outside and do some spring cleaning on your car. It’s more fun, and if you choose the right music, you will even thoroughly enjoy it.
