5 essential items to keep in your car boot

by | Sep 18, 2019

Whether you are driving in town or taking a break from the city life and exploring the countryside, there are some things that you should always have in your car. Here’s what the team at Repairy believes is essential in every car’s emergency kit.

1. Flashlight


This travel essential can save you from a lot of situations. You wouldn’t want to be stuck at the side of the road without any light in the dead of night. With a good light source, you would also be able to change a flat tire.

Repairy Tip: Keep several spare batteries in your trunk so that you will not run out of juice while on the road.

2. Small Shovel

The terrain in Victoria can often be unpredictable especially in the regional areas. A shovel in your trunk can come in handy when you find yourself in a sticky situation. Whether it’s mud, dirt, or snow, the shovel could just be your car’s saviour.

3. Jumper Cables

Flat car batteries are a common occurrence. If you’re not a member of a roadside assistance company, waiting for help could cost you hundreds of dollars. It is important that you know how to use jumper cables. You can watch tutorial videos online, or ask a mechanic to teach you the right way to use the jumper cables.

4. Reflective Triangles

Being stranded at the side of the road can be dangerous especially at night for incoming traffic. Early warning devices such as reflective triangles will make sure that other drivers will see you in advance. You can also use LED lights as an alternative warning device.

5. Spare Tire

This is something that should be found in your boot. However, a spare tire is useless without a tire iron and jack. You should make sure that you have those tools in your car as well.

These are just some of the essential items that we recommend that everyone should have in their car. Remember that being prepared will go a long way.
