Summer motoring tips for car insurance customers from IAM

Monday, 26 April 2010

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has offered advice to car insurance policyholders on how they can prepare their cars for the warmer weather, which should be arriving in the UK soon.

Motorists have been advised by the IAM, which is a charity committed to raising driving standards in the UK, to take their car to a place that specialises in under-car cleaning to get rid of any residual salt that could be corrosive, leading to rust on the car.

To make sure any car insurance customers with hayfever are not too affected by the warm weather, drivers should replace the car's pollen filter as well as ensuring the air-con is well maintained to avoid any discomfort for hayfever sufferers.

IAM has also suggested that drivers regularly refill the washer fluid in their car to make sure there are not many flies on the windscreen and it has advised replacing wiper blades so there are no scratches left on the windscreen.

Peter Rodger, IAM chief examiner, said that car insurance customers should deal with repairs as they occur so they are not too overly expensive to deal with in the long run.
