4 Best Tips For Packing Your Car

2017 Nissan Altima interior - packing your car for vacation or moving

One of the biggest problems when traveling or moving is trying to fit everything in your vehicle (2017 Nissan Altima, anyone?). We’ll share some of our favorite space-saving tips that will make packing your car a breeze!

  • Pack similar items together – Make sure that you have breakable items at least kind of together. This will help you make sure that they’re placed carefully in a low-risk area of the car.
  • Take advantage of all space – The trunk isn’t the only place to store things in a car! Store items under seats and anywhere else you can find it.
  • Use bags, not boxes – As you may realize, it can be hard to fit a squared-off object into a rounded car interior. By packing in bags your cargo becomes more pliable and easier to fit.
    • Bonus tip: use vacuum bags for even more space!
  • Use an overhead carrier – There will always be times when you just need more space than you have. Add a carrier to the top of your car and pack it with the items you know you won’t need until you reach your destination.

Whether you’re going on a road trip, leaving for vacation or moving, let’s face it: space is always coveted when packing your car. Make the most of it with a new 2017 Nissan Altima sedan from 171 Nissan in DeRidder, LA!

Holiday Travel Tips

Happy holidays from everyone at 171 Nissan! If you plan on traveling, whether to see family and friends or to take a relaxing vacation, there are a few things you can do to ease the stress. Traveling this time of year means crowds, delays, and high ticket prices. Thankfully you can avoid all of those things with our holiday travel tips!

Crowds. Generally speaking, most people like to travel during the middle of the day, resulting in large crowds. To avoid getting caught up in the crowd, it’s important to pick the right time to fly. Early mornings and late at night are the best times as most people are at home or have already left for the day.

Delays. Some delays simply can’t be avoided but you can lower the chances you’ll have to deal with one. Early morning flights don’t see delays as often as other flights as they’re the first to leave the airport. If you do experience a delay, it’ll likely be shorter than the one that stems from it later in the day.

High Ticket Prices. Paying less for your ticket is as easy as booking your flight far in advance. Ticket prices tend to rise as more seats are booked and the holidays draw nearer. Book early and save some money!
