How to Dig Your Car Out of 4ft of Snow…

…Without Scratching the Paintwork.

You will need:

Shovel, dustpan, scraper

  • Waterproof gloves (not necessary but bloody useful)
  • A shovel
  • A plastic dustpan
  • A scraper




Orange car under 4 foot of snow

Shovel off all but the last foot of snow, starting with the top and working down.





Using dustpan, remove the final foot of snow

Then use the plastic dustpan to take off the final foot.





Clear snow from windscreen wipers with a scraper

Finally, turn the engine on and take off the last bit with the rubber ice scraper.

Get all the bits around the windscreen wipers – trying to move them covered in snow can short your circuit.
