#1 Gas Can
People run out of gas a lot more than you think so an essential tool to make sure you have is a gas can or if you’re a professional, a gas can WITH gas. Everyone has at least one story of how they ran out of gas and most can tell you the circumstances of how it caused problems that day. You can save the day with this simple and inexpensive item.
It’s hard to change a tire without the proper tools. Many vehicles don’t have a jack in them. In fact, some cars don’t even come brand new from the factory with a jack. If you are providing roadside assistance, you need a stable jack that can hold a large amount of weight.
#3 Air Compressor
If you are helping to change a tire or if the tire is out of air, it’s a lot more convenient to fill it or test it with air right on the scene. This saves you trips back and forth and makes it so you may not have to remove the tire at all.
#4 Jump Starter
You can always use jump starter cables but the new technology has become more portable and affordable than ever before. A small power supply with included cables can jump start a car or truck easily without having to hook up to another vehicle’s battery.
In general, you’ll need a comprehensive tool kit so you have a way to tighten loose screws, remove lug nuts, etc. A few of the problems experienced on the road can be fixed with a few simple tools.
