How Alarms Can Protect Your Automotive Investment

How Alarms Can Protect Your Automotive Investment

Have you heard this from a friend? "The thief broke my back window, climbed in and broke the shifter. Next, they rolled my car down the driveway where another vehicle was waiting to push it away. The police found my car 2 blocks away stripped clean and left for dead."   For any vehicle owner, one of their worst nightmares is having it stolen. Insurance will give some ability to replace it.

How to See Better Using LED Lighting on Your Snow Vehicles

Vehicle lighting is helpful during the winter months, so we’d like to focus on snowmobiles in particular right now. We frequently get customers needing additional lighting for their snowmobiles only after they’ve been in a hazardous situation that causes them to realize stock equipment’s shortcomings. Michigan only requires a headlight and taillight on snowmobiles, and that works fine if you’re staying around a well-lit area. However, as soon as you venture off the beaten path, it’s very likely that your stock equipment is insufficient. Though we’re focusing on snowmobiles, we will point out that most of the same principles apply to other off-road vehicles such as quads, and even to bicycles. Regardless of what you’re using to get around, it’s still winter, and we’ve got a bit to go before the sun doesn’t set so quickly. Let us talk you through some considerations about your snowmobile lighting so that you don’t end up e ... read more
