Winter can be the harshest season of the year and it can easily strike at the heart of a driver’s transportation. In those situation, it’s important to be prepared with the proper equipment for the job. While you can’t take your entire garage, you can certainly store a few important items in your car. Here’s are a few suggestions on what to store in your car for winter from all of us here at Cambridge Classic Ford.
- Blankets – If you’ve ever been stranded in a snow drift in a car that won’t start, you already know how important blankets are. It’s important to stay warm when you’re trapped on the side of the road awaiting help. There’s no knowing how long you’ll be out in the cold and a car can’t stay warm forever. Pack in several blankets in case disaster strikes.
- First Aid Kit – You should always have a first aid kit in your car in case of an emergency. This simple item is incredibly important during winter. Slipping and falling can result in a nasty injury while car accidents are a constant threat as well.
- Jumper Cables – It takes more current to start a car and some batteries can die under the strain. Having a pair of jumper cables increases the likelihood you’ll be back on the road sooner rather than later.
