When winter rolls around, drivers need the proper skill set and equipment to effectively maneuver an Executive Coach Sprinter or any large-scale fleet. CoachWest offers luxurious coach bus rentals equipped with state-of-the-art features and seating capacities of up to 40 persons. Fleets that are large and loaded with technology require thorough inspection and daily upkeep to thrive in cold climates and function accurately. Winterizing your executive coach is a simple process that requires maintenance like any form of transportation. Today’s blog by CoachWest demonstrates how to prepare your executive coach sprinter for the winter ahead.
Seasonal Inspection for Your Executive Coach Sprinter
Freezing temperatures hinder the functionality of your fleet, especially the ones used infrequently, enhancing pre-existing conditions. The sooner you repair any issues in your fleet, the better prepared your coach will be for the winter. Some commonly inspected vehicle parts include:
- Coolant Fluids
- Windshield Wipers
- Power Steering
- Engine Oil
It is crucial to inspect buses like the Executive Coach Sprinter with high-end technology features. Digital touch screens, rooftop solar charging systems, cameras, wireless internet routers, and more are all susceptible to damage in the event of an accident or missed examination.
Equip Your Executive Coach With the Proper Tires
Investing in efficient tires is significant when winterizing your executive coach. If you plan on driving your bus through heavy snowfall, snow tires are essential. For less intense winters and icy grounds, ensure your weather-resistant tires have plenty of treads attached without cracks. At CoachWest, we inspect our tires daily and replace them immediately at any sight of deficiency.
Evaluate your heater to guarantee it is blowing warm air and free of debris. During the summer, heaters are of no use, so the possibility of heater failure is high. Consult a mechanic if you believe there are any leaks in your system.
In the event of an emergency, drivers must respond accurately. It is easy to forget how to drive in icy conditions and make simple mistakes that could veer you off course. Ensure your driver understands speed, control, slow steering, and maintaining distance from nearby vehicles if they need to brake quickly. At CoachWest, we train our drivers to handle emergencies and receive refresher courses on driving in extreme weather conditions.
