However, you shouldn’t just throw everything in the back. In fact, you should strategically pack your N Charlotte Toyota using tips from our new Toyota dealership!

How to pack your N Charlotte Toyota

Before you head out on the road, you should learn how to pack your N Charlotte Toyota! It may seem like a thoughtless task, but it actually requires a process and some thought! Use our tips to get your N Charlotte Toyota ready for a road trip.
  • Keep important items easy accessible and on-hand. You should always have access to items like your driver’s license, car registration, and proof of insurance when you’re behind the wheel. If you have other items of importance, make sure you keep them close by on your road trip.
  • Pack heavy items on the bottom. Heavy suitcases, containers, and other items should be placed at the bottom when packing. This prevents other items from being damaged.
  • Keep your rear view clear. Once you start stacking lighter items on top of the heavy stuff, make sure you don’t stack too high. You should make sure that you don’t block the rear windshield. Double check once you pack up that you can see the road in your rear view mirror.
  • Don’t weigh down the roof. If you’re taking advantage of the space above your N Charlotte Toyota, ensure that you’ve tied down cargo safely to your roof racks. Do not put anything too heavy on your roof, as you can make the car top-heavy and increase the risk of a rollover.
Are you stopping for the night on your trip? Instead of unpacking your belongings on your stop, pack an extra overnight bag! This bag should have overnight necessities such as toiletries, pajamas, a change of clothes for the next day, a phone charger, etc. Keep this bag in an easy to reach spot so you don’t have to dig when the time comes to stop.

Keep your N Charlotte Toyota passengers happy!

If you’re going to be on the road for a while, you’re going to need ways to keep yourself and your passengers entertained and happy. In the backseats, pack items such as:
  • Snacks
  • Bottled water or juice
  • Toys, games, coloring books, etc.
  • Tissues and wipes
Don’t forget to make a playlist of your favorite tunes to stream wirelessly from your device using the Bluetooth wireless connectivity. You could also enjoy music using the available Entune App Suite, with access to internet radio like Pandora and Slacker Radio.
