Four Steps for Sending Your Car Away to College



Mom and College Son Standing Together

Seeing your child off to college is an emotional transition, especially if they are going far away from home. Sending them away in the family vehicle can create even more worry and stress. A little advance planning and a well-maintained vehicle can offer peace-of-mind to parents, says the non-profit Car Care Council.




  1. Get a sendoff vehicle inspection: College is a busy time for students and it is likely that car care at college will not be top of mind. Be sure to schedule a thorough vehicle inspection before packing up the car so you can rest easy knowing your child is driving a road-ready vehicle.

  2. Make an emergency plan: Discuss a plan with your child in case they experience a roadside emergency. Be sure they know who to contact for roadside assistance and stock the car with an emergency kit, including jumper cables, emergency flares, a flashlight with batteries, blankets and extra clothes, water and non-perishable snacks, a first aid kit, a portable USB charger and a fully charged cell phone. To be prepared for inclement weather, include an ice scraper, a snow brush and small shovel.

  3. Hit the books: Encourage your child to learn about auto care by reviewing the Car Care Council's online Car Care Guide and becoming familiar with the owner's manual. The printed Car Care Guide fits easily in a glove compartment and covers the most common preventive maintenance occasions and procedures that should be performed to keep cars safe, dependable and efficient.

  4. Stay on schedule: To stay on top of routine vehicle maintenance, sign up for the council's free Custom Service Schedule and receive email service reminders and recall notices so that you and your child are aware of any issues and can address them in a timely fashion.

    First time here I had a problem with my car I didn't know what's going on and I'm like not again since I just took my car to a shop in Boca .. Thank God I met a honest mechanic he found loose wire that created that problem , I took him 10 mn and my surprise was fulfilled when he didn't charge Me, that's what I call HONESTY and KINDNESS.

    Brought my car here last week & they did an excellent job in repairing my car. The price they charged was half from what I was quoted at firestone & tire kingdom.
