Whether you own a car, an SUV, or a UTV, being safe and ready for any situation is important. Vehicles, such as a 4×4, should have the right tools and equipment, which you can use in case of emergency.
Your everyday sedan should have its spare tire at the back. Installing a small LED light bar is also a great idea. The things you keep in your vehicle will depend on the type of vehicle and how often you use it. Here are some of the kits you should always have in your car:
1. Repair and Maintenance Kit
This kit is crucial for those who love long drives. Jumper cables, wrenches, screwdrivers, and tools for changing tires are good examples. If you know your vehicle well enough, you’ll know which tools to buy. If you’ve just bought your first car, you can never go wrong with any basic repair and maintenance kit. As you spend more time with your wheels, you can make the necessary adjustments.
2. Survival and Safety Kit
This is a must-have for family trips or off-road adventures. A first-aid kit, a flashlight, matches or a lighter, reflective triangle or flares, and drinking water are the most important items to put in this kit. Anything that will keep you safe in case you have a flat tire at night on a highway should be readily available.
3. Comfort and Convenience Kit
This must include tissue paper, wet wipes, an umbrella, barf bags, an extra shirt, blankets, a sweat towel, and your mobile phone charger. The things you’ll put in this kit will depend on your lifestyle and how often you stay in your car.
It’ll be up to you how much you’ll want to load into each kit. If it will give you peace of mind that you’ll be ready for anything, you should have it in your car.
