The staff and management of the Benson Group, including their automotive specialist teams at over 100 locations in Ontario and Quebec wish to extend their warmest season’s greetings to all their customers for a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.

the fuel tank near full will reduce the likelihood of gasoline or diesel condensation problems and will add extra weight for improved traction and handling. Please remember posted speed limits are for optimal road and weather conditions only and extra time should be factored in to any winter trek.

With this time of increased travel, busy highways, and less than ideal weather and road conditions, the Benson team wants to remind everyone to plan ahead for trips no matter what the distance. Take extra time to clear all vehicle windows, exterior lights and surfaces of snow and ice. Make sure your auto has plenty of washer fluid, winter tires, and an emergency roadside kit. Pack cargo, luggage, and gifts with care, because, in the event of a collision, anything loose in the passenger compartment can become a fast-moving projectile which can cause injury. Keeping

The Benson automotive stores will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day to allow their staff to enjoy the holiday time with family and loved ones. Your automotive needs are always on the top of the Benson Group’s list and their outlets’ experts will make sure that you have the right part at the right time for the best price available. Roadside emergency kits are available in a variety of types for both commercial and personal use. Please drive safely and give your family the best gift of all; you safe at home to share these special times.
