Roadside Assistance Service Survival Tips

What to Carry in Your Vehicle at All Times

No matter how careful you are when it comes to the maintenance of your vehicle, your car will at some point break down. Whether it is because of a flat tire, dead battery, faulty transmission, or even run out of gas. It is best to have a plan ready at all times to respond to any of these setbacks. Use the following roadside assistance service survival tips to help make sure you and your passengers remain safe and comfortable at all times.

Pack a roadside emergency kit

Pack an emergency kit to be prepared in the event of a breakdown or any other mechanical issue. Most of the items listed below are inexpensive and can be found at your local hardware store or online.

The recommended roadside emergency kit will need to include the following:

  • jumper cables
  • road flares
  • tarp
  • flashlight and extra batteries
  • duct tape
  • bottled water and non-perishable snacks
  • multipurpose tools
  • small, easily storable fire extinguisher
  • cell phone charger
  • refillable gas jug
  • extra blankets

First Aid kit

  • hand sanitizer
  • band-aids
  • antiseptic
  • bug spray
  • aspirin
  • cotton balls
  • bandages
  • gauze pads
  • tweezers

However, if you’re looking for just the basics, choose an emergency kit that includes the following:

  • multipurpose tools
  • First Aid kit
  • jumper cables
  • road flares
  • bottled water and non-perishable snacks
  • cell phone charger

Make sure that you don’t lose any emergency kit components. You can create a list and tape it to the outside of your emergency kit box. This way, you will have a detailed document as a reference as you pack up after a breakdown, and you know what needs to be replaced.
