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.

    Went here based on the good reviews and made a great choice. The service was almost half of what was proposed to me by the dealer. And very competitive with other mechanics in the area. They had great customer service, gave me a fair price and the best part was how fast they were. My car was ready next day exactly when they said it would be ready. Plus they gave me a complimentary car wash under the hood and all around. Will definitely recommend and come again in the future.

    Recently my BMW 328i was at another shop getting gaskets replaced, I had to take it back after they cracked the valve. In the process of them redoing it, one of my coolant hose was put on the wrong way & my alternator started eating the hose causing coolant leak. I refused to take it back & instead brought it to Fabian at revolution imports. He was able to point out what happened & got the issue fixed next day. I wish I would've brought my car in sooner!! Fair prices & most importantly honest, reliable work.
