In the era of online shopping when countless holiday gifts are available at the click of a button, putting in a little extra time and legwork can mean a lot. The Car Care Council offers these thoughtful and practical ideas for gift-givers who want to go beyond a simple mouse click for their family and friends this holiday season.

“We live such busy and stressful lives these days and sometimes simply taking a chore off of someone’s plate can be the most thoughtful gift,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “The gift of car care will not only let your family and friends check an important task off their list, but it will help keep them safe on the road.”

An oil change and inspection: Regular oil changes are the best way to keep a car running in peak condition, but some drivers find it to be an onerous chore. If this sounds like someone you know, an oil change and inspection may be the perfect gift. Whether you take their car to a trusted professional technician or do it yourself, your family and friends will appreciate the time and effort you put into their gift.

A car wash and detail: Keeping a vehicle clean and detailed helps protect the paint, interior and wheels from harsh weather and damaging chemicals. A busy driver in your life will appreciate you taking the time to have their car professionally cleaned and detailed or doing it yourself.

A roadside emergency kit: For the traditionalist who can’t imagine a gift that isn’t wrapped up and under the tree, the Car Care Council suggests putting together a roadside emergency kit, including items such as jumper cables; emergency flares; a flashlight with batteries; blankets and extra clothes; water and non-perishable snacks; a first aid kit; a portable USB charger; an ice scraper, snow brush and small shovel; and the council’s

      Schaeffler is launching a range of aftermarket bearings, seals and housings for agricultural equipment and machinery. 
      Schaeffler’s comprehensive line of OE-quality bearings are specifically engineered to the precise performance parameters of agricultural applications, including tractors, harvesters and tillage machines.
      Reliable and dependable bearing solutions are critical in minimizing equipment downtime. Schaeffler’s heavy-duty bearings are designed to support the constant vibrations and high shock loads of agricultural machinery. 
      The bearings feature a unique corrosion-protection system – Schaeffler’s Corrotect coating – that facilitates reliable operation in every environment and helps increase the operating life of heavy equipment and machinery, according to the company. The three-piece-seal concept retains the high-quality grease and helps prevent contamination and moisture from reaching the interior of the bearing.
      Schaeffler is further expanding its product line with metric-sized bearings and is providing both metric and imperial-sized bearings for agricultural applications in North America. Equipment owners and operators now can choose from more than 200 easy-to-mount options for a diameter range of 10 to 120 mm. The new metric offering compliments Schaeffler’s existing line of imperial-sized bearings, which already includes more than 400 SKUs.  
      Aftermarket bearings for agricultural applications include radial-insert ball bearings and housing units; sealed deep-groove ball bearings and angular-contact ball bearings; tapered roller bearings; and bearings with hexagonal and square bores.
