Be ready in case you get stuck in the snow

We have heard over the past weeks of people getting stuck on snow. We have learned that not a lot of people know how to act in these cases. 

ShipMyRide’s Team, has done some research and we put together some tips that may become handy if you ever encounter yourself in this situation. 


FIRST of all, we recommend to ALWAYS wear warm cloths when going out; dress in layers and with appropriate rated boots and jackets. You never know when you might have to be out in the elements to change a tire, or repair anything outside the comfort of your vehicle. 

TIP: Having a survival kit and preparing your trunk for emergencies is always handy. Click on this link to read more on this.

If you get STUCK IN THE SNOW, follow these recommendations

  • DON’T PANIC -Try to stay calm and don't go out in the cold.
  • STAY WARM - Stay in your car: you will avoid getting lost and your car is a safe shelter.
  • SAVE ENERGY - Don't tire yourself out. Shoveling in the intense cold can be deadly.
  • LET AIR IN - Let in fresh air by opening a window on the side sheltered from the wind.
  • AVOID TOXIC GAS - Keep the engine off as much as possible. Be aware of carbon monoxide poisoning and make sure the exhaust pipe is not obstructed by snow.
  • WARMTH - If possible, use a candle placed inside a deep can instead of the car heater to warm up.
  • BE VISIBLE - Turn on warning lights or set up road flares to make your car visible.
  • SAVE BATTERY POWER - turn on the ceiling light; leaving your headlights or hazard lights on for too long will drain the battery.
  • MOVE - Move your hands, feet and arms to maintain circulation. Stay awake.
  • BE AWARE - Keep an eye out for other cars and emergency responders. 
  • KEEP DRY - Try to keep clothing dry since wet clothing can lead to a dangerous loss of body heat.


Please drive safely and check for weather forecasts. We want your trip to be as safe as possible. Visit  ShipMyRide for car shipping quotes across Canada

Leave room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you and the vehicles next to you.Do not use tail lights of a vehicle as a reference for distance. When snow starts falling, visibility is low. This means that if you are able to see the lights of the vehicle in front of you, you are probably to close. Know your driving limits. Be able to recognize which weather conditions are too severe for your experience on driving. If you have to stop, STOP. It’s better to stop and keep yourself and the…

Brand new Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 S

Brabus, one of the most famous tuners when it comes to Mercedes-Benz cars, decided to extract even more horsepower from the 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo that come with the AMG C63 S.
To achieve this, they have switch to the B40-600 PowerXtra power kit that allows the car to generate the extra 88 hp, thus the total power of this coupé is a whopping 591 hp. Additionally, the torque has increased by 73 pound-feet of torque to reach an earth shattering 590 ft-lbs.
With this big change in the heart of the C63 AMG S, stepping on the throttle pedal will take you from 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds,  achieving a top speed of 300 km / h while at it. In addition to these mechanical changes, Brabus also worked on the body of the C63 in order to substantially improve aerodynamics.
