Why your car needs a tune-up before a long-distance move [Video]
If you plan to drive a long distance to your new home, it's best to get a tune-up before heading out on the road.
The last thing you want during an interstate move is the headache and additional cost of car repairs, not to mention the logistical issues that could crop up if you can't get to your new home before your movers.
Make a point to schedule a tune-up for your vehicle with a trusted local mechanic. Let them know you'll be traveling across the country so they can check the relevant parts of your car. While it's an additional expense, it's much more manageable and convenient than coordinating a major repair en route.
