Trusted & Transparent Online Car Selling platform myTukar is urging drivers to ensure they keep cars in a safe, roadworthy condition during the current MCO (Movement Control Order). With just a week and a half to go, the MCO will be over and we can all go back to our normal lives.
The Road Transport Department has offered extension and relevant deferred payments on road taxes through the MCO, it remains our responsibility to keep our cars in a roadworthy condition.
myTukar CEO Fong Hon Sum commented, “Now more than ever it is important to get into the habit of carrying out regular basic checks on fluid levels and tyre pressures to make sure your car is in good shape.”
When it comes to tyres, make sure the tyres have the minimum amount of tread left. Otherwise, it is time to find new replacement tyres as soon as the MCO is over. Perhaps, there might be several tyre shops open, if your car needed new tyres or you can subscribe to mobile auto services to assist with all auto related services.
myTukar has a list of auto tips on car maintenance and cleanliness’ to help inexperienced car owners conduct cleaning and basic maintenance. The list includes interior cleaning, sanitizing, warming up car and the right solutions to use for cleaning or sanitizing.
myTukar is also reminding drivers that they should only be leaving home for essential travel, which includes travelling to/from work and shopping for necessary items, medical needs.
However, car servicing is not a valid reason for leaving the house. If your car is due a service then it will have to wait until the MCO is over. But there’s no need to be concerned, as timescales are seldom strict with car service intervals, so waiting a few more weeks is unlikely to be a problem.
