Light Check

When the sun starts to set earlier and with BC’s fickle winter weather, having working lights on your vehicle is essential for safe driving. Crompton Brothers can help ensure that all aspects of lighting are up-to-date, so you’re always visible while hitting the roads in cold months – fog or no fog!


Keep the elements from determining your driving experience! With Crompton Brothers’ checks, you can trust that even in low visibility conditions, you’ll be able to see clearly and drive with confidence. Don’t risk being unprepared for unexpected weather – stay a step ahead and make sure your vehicle’s heater/defroster is always ready to go!

Washer Fluid

Winter driving can be treacherous, but having a reliable set of windshield wipers, plenty of washer fluid, and antifreeze will ensure you stay safe on the roads. Put your trust in Crompton Brothers – their experienced technicians know how to prepare your vehicle for whatever Mother Nature has in store!

 The Coquihalla Cams

Driving between Kamloops and Hope can be a wild ride – travelers, beware! The highway is flanked with formidable avalanche chutes that harken the steep terrain all around. In winter, it’s kept open thanks to powerful machinery like avalanche guns mounted on platforms nearby. Check the BC Highway weather cams for the Coquihalla road conditions before starting out. Driving this route has its risks: strong snowfall makes it tricky even for experienced drivers to stay safe while traversing the path; plus there’s also an uphill grade in summer months which could put your car at risk of overheating if you’re not careful or well-equipped enough. Thankfully though, Highway patrols are frequent, but cell service is spotty and cannot be counted on.
