Another year has come to a close, we’ve made our new year’s resolutions and we’re ready for new adventures. It’s the perfect time to share some basic pro-tips for a new year refresher.

  1. Now that the holidays are over, what do I do with my Christmas tree?
    Learn how to transport your tree properly to ensure the vehicles stay clean. Also, check with your local city government websites on recycling programs such as the tree chipping event hosted in January by the City of Vancouver.
  2. Worried about driving in winter conditionsWatch out for black ice and poor conditions, and don’t forget that you can book vehicles with snow tires!
  3. Remember the campsite rule when your booking is finished: leave your Modo even better than you found it. A quick check for clutter and personal effects, as well as returning the seat to a neutral position and making sure the gas tank is at least 1/4 full will help the next member get their trip started on the right foot!
  4. Have a little extra time at the end of your booking? Have your Modo cleaned and earn free drive time!
  5. Keep that motor running! Remember to do a quick assessment before you walk away from your vehicle to ensure the dome light and headlights are both turned off. Leaving the lights on can cause the battery to drain leaving the next member stuck in their tracks.
  6.  Unfortunately, accidents do happen. If it does happen to you it’s crucial that you collect the other party’s information. This includes:  getting the plate number, the driver’s name and their driver’s license. Please phone us as soon as possible – don’t email us – after the accident happens. Questions about insurance?

  7. Do you have the latest update for your Modo app? Read more tips on the app here.
  8. Perhaps one of the most important things to remember about your Modo booking is – always fob out at the end of your trip! Learn more about fees and fines here.

These pro-tips are simply friendly reminders and we’re happy to have respectful, conscientious members in the Modo family.
