A Foldable Shovel Device
Digging out your vehicle if it gets stuck and can’t move can be extremely difficult, especially if you’re stuck using your hands. You might wish you had a shovel, but can’t fit it in your model. Thankfully, that’s not the case with a foldable shovel – an item we recommend you bring in a winter emergency kit. They can be bought online or at a military surplus store.
Portable Air Compressor
Tires often get hurt the most by winter and fall driving, as a loss of air pressure due to cold temperatures can lead to them being damaged. You should make sure that you bring an air compressor to keep your tires topped up, letting you drive safely no matter where you are or where you go. These use the 12v outlets of your model to keep you going!
A Bag of Cat Litter
Yes, cat litter, or a similar absorbent. These are good for adding traction on ice, letting your vehicle move easier, and get unstuck if needed. You should add these items to your list of winter emergency supplies, as you can find them easily and they do a lot to help you!
These are just three of many great winter emergency items we recommend you bring with you this winter in Akron, OH! To learn more about what to bring, or to have your model inspected before the winter hits, contact our dealership today!
