Getting ready for winter

FOLLOWING a treacherous winter of snowfall and plummeting temperatures last year, Vauxhall retailer, Thurlow Nunn, is encouraging motorists in Wisbech to prepare themselves for the colder months with a comprehensive range of winter accessories.

In an effort to increase road safety this year, the retailer on Cromwell Road is offering a number of winter car care accessories, including the popular and highly effective AutoSock Snow Socks; tyre covers which give vehicles extra traction on snow and ice, reducing the risk of an accident in slippery conditions.

Last year, insurers paid out millions to motorists in 278,000 claims during the winter months alone and many of these claims were for accidental damage caused by driving on slippery roads. The risk of having an accident in these conditions is seriously reduced through the use of the AutoSock Snow Socks and the extra grip they provide.

What’s more, these innovative tyre covers are far less bulky and awkward than snow chains and are easily fitted over the driving wheels of the vehicle to create greater friction on the road. Plus they can be reused time and time again.

Colin Vertigan, General Manager, from Thurlow Nunn said: “Here at Thurlow Nunn we pride ourselves in caring for our customers’ safety as much as anything else and our winter accessories range demonstrates this perfectly.

“While we know that most motorists are careful when driving in cold winter conditions and wouldn’t choose to make a journey if the roads were too dangerous, sometimes driving on treacherous roads is unavoidable; whether you need to collect the children from school or travel home from work. This is why we are offering these products to our customers, so that the risk of them having an accident this winter is substantially reduced.”
