Things You Should Keep In Your Car

What to keep in your car | Weimer Ford

There may be plenty of things you keep in your car, but do you have the essentials in case of emergency? Look over this checklist and make sure your car’s trunk is packed with the tools and items to handle the unexpected.

Jumper Cables

Batteries die, and usually quite unexpectedly. Keep jumper cables around in case you find yourself in need of a jump.

First Aid Kit

In an emergency, you’ll definitely want a first aid kit for your car. Keep one stocked with items such as bandages, antibacterial ointment, painkillers, scissors, tweezers, and hydrocortisone cream.

Bottled Water

You never know where you might be stranded and for how long in the event of a breakdown. It’s always good to have water on hand. Bottled water can also be used to clean cuts if needed.

Paper Towels

This kitchen essential comes in handy in all kinds of scenarios, whether it’s used for a spill or for wiping your hands clean after topping off the engine oil.

Phone Charger

This item has only become essential in recent years, but now it’s always a good idea to have one. Many drivers rely on their phones for directions and will use it to call for help in an emergency, so it’s important to have a way to keep your phone ready to go.

Make sure your car is running the way it should by scheduling a maintenance check at Weimer Ford.
