Evans Halshaw urges drivers to get a grip this winter

blasts, plunging temperatures and threats of snow, local Vauxhall retailer, Evans Halshaw, is urging drivers in Saltash to get prepared for the cold road ahead
with Vauxhall's winter tyres, winter accessories and Winter Safety Checks.
To ensure drivers maintain a sure footing
whatever the weather, the retailer on Gilston
Road is keen to remind drivers of Vauxhall's MasterFit Winter Tyre
With a range of tyres available to suit
customers' vehicles, Vauxhall MasterFit dealerships will supply and fit tyres
for all popular Vauxhall models so that motorists are ready for the cold snap.
Ben Darnell, Dealer Principal at Evans Halshaw, explains: "In cold conditions, and particularly on
snow and ice, drivers run the risk of skidding, and so we want to remind
customers of the importance of winter tyres in offering improved grip and
"In temperatures at or below seven degrees
centigrade, the tread compound on standard summer tyres starts to harden and
lose grip. The compound used in the production of winter tyres however contains
more natural rubber, which means drivers can be assured of better flexibility
and grip when taking to the road. This can reduce braking distances by up to 10
per cent in rain and up to 20 per cent in snow."
And in an
effort to ensure drivers in the area keep moving whatever the weather, Evans Halshaw is also offering Auto Sock Snow Socks
from just £49.95, which simply slip over the driving wheels of a vehicle to
give extra grip.
Quick and easy
to use, they
work by creating friction between the wheels and the road surface and can be
used on all makes and models of vehicle.
What's more, being light and compact, they are ideal for storing in the car for when snowy and icy road
conditions strike and offer a less bulky alternative to snow chains.
Ben Darnell continues: "It's
often difficult to avoid driving on snow and ice during the winter months and
so we're keen to ensure that drivers in the area are not only fully prepared,
but able to get out of slippery situations when adverse
conditions take hold.
"Whether it's getting home from work or
getting the kids to school this winter, Auto Sock Snow Socks provide extra grip
that could make all the difference."
In addition, Evans
Halshaw is also offering a range of convenient products by Autoglym, to
help ensure drivers keep a clear view behind the wheel.
With Autoglym De-Icer and Concentrated
Screenwash, both available from £3.99*, drivers can be confident that their
visibility won't be compromised when the weather takes a turn for the worst.
with Winter Safety Checks
Finally, with many families planning trips up
and down the country to visit friends and relatives over the festive season, Evans Halshaw is encouraging motorists to get
set for long journeys by taking advantage of Vauxhall's thorough 25-point
Winter Safety Check, including fluid top ups, for just £35 RRP.
To give customers complete peace of mind, the
dealership's expertly-trained team of Vauxhall MasterFit technicians will

brakes, tyre inflation, wiper blades and more. In addition, the safety check
includes engine oil, brake fluid and radiator coolant, topping-up fluids where
