    Look for your car:

    You may not remember clearly where your car was parked last night, so the first thing you’ll need to do is to find it.

    Get the right tools:

    Use a snow blower or shovel the car by using brushes and brooms that have smooth bristles. Hard bristles can give scratches to your car and remove off paint.

    Start digging:

    If your car is stuck, then dig around the vehicles until you are sure that all tires are free. After you have cleaned the snow off your car, shovel a path to your car. Or do it before cleaning off the snow from the car. Now start your car and turn on the heating system. If your locks won’t open, don’t try to force-open them, use a de-icer first.
