No one ever likes to think of an emergency happening while driving, such as a flat tire, running out of gas, the car breaking down, etc. Unfortunately these things do happen though, and for that reason it’s best to be prepared with a roadside emergency kit.

A roadside emergency kit includes a variety of items that are meant to help you in different emergency situations. The kit is meant to be stored in your vehicle at all times so you always have it.

Here are some key points to consider regarding a quality roadside emergency kit:

  • Pre-packaged vs. self assembled: While you can collect all the items on your own and store them in your vehicle, a pre-packaged roadside emergency kit takes all the guesswork out of it. Furthermore, it is usually packed in a container, bag, or pouch which makes for simple and neat storage in the vehicle.

  • Budget vs. content: Roadside emergency kits can be picked up all over the place, and range in price depending on the amount/type of items included in it. Instead of focusing on the price it’s best to take a look at what items are in it. Some of the key items are reflective lights, a basic first-aid kit, a flashlight along with spare batteries, a warm blanket, gloves, a small shovel, jumper cables, water, snacks, a tow rope, duct tape, a utility tool, and more.

A roadside emergency kit is a kit that contains various items that may be handy in an emergency situation. It is meant to be stored in your car at all times.

Richard was an outstanding mechanic. After he arrived, the first thing he did after taking the initial pictures of the car is an assessment into what work was asked. He quickly verified that I did not need brake fluid and my front brakes even-though it affects his personal commitments and time, which I think is highly appreciate and thorough professional. He was detailed oriented - took time to make sure that all the issue are fixed. He paid attention to detail in overall car assessment- he goes above and beyond. He was also teaching me through the process which I found highly educational and appreciate him providing the information ensuring and making me comfortable what he was doing and explaining patiently all the questions that was thrown at him. When he works - you know he's highly skilled and experienced and knows his stuff. He is highly experienced. He is a "Master" mechanic in true sense :)
