Read on to find out more.

Set Your Priority 

Prioritize you and your company’s safety first; everything else comes after. You should check all the safety specs of your vehicle and store all the necessary items you might need, like packed-food items, medicines, extra clothing, camping equipment, etc.

Shake Up Your Vehicle Fluids

Ensure that you quickly check all the fluids in your vehicle and see that there is no leak or change in quantity or level. Pore over the air filter and other small compartments for spotting debris.

Ramp Up Your Tires

See if your tire has any issues, like if its spokes have been erased, and focus on your tire tread to ensure that it is not rubbed off. 

Jack Up the Vehicle Joints

Scrutinize the ball joints of your vehicle. You should tie rods and jack up the wheel bearings when required. 

Gear Up for the Weather

Take note of what the weather will be like at your planned destination. Be prepared with appropriate clothing and protective gear like rainwear, sunglass, sunscreen, hats, etc. It is always better to have a sleeping bag with you, even if you are not planning to stay overnight.

Up Your Replenishment

Pack more than what you need, especially food. That may sound greedy, but it is advised to do when you embark on a journey without much planning. 

Top Up Your Vehicle

Keep your gas tank filled and overwhelmed, not overwhelmed, obviously! Fill up the gas regularly during the trip. That way, you can ensure that you will not need to worry about missing gas stations at every stop.
