Handy tools you should keep in your car

There are a few items you can buy on eBay that can come in handy if you need to make small repairs to your vehicle.

Keeping spare parts on hand can save you time and money. They can also keep you safer and help you deal with surprises.

One of the most important things you should have is a standard toolset with wrenches, screwdrivers and sockets. These common tools can be used to take care of a variety of simple repairs. Most sets are small enough to slide under your seat.

It’s also a good idea to keep a tyre gauge in your glovebox. Get in the habit of checking the air pressure of your tyres every once in a while, especially before long road trips. This can help you get the most out of your tyres and also help you save money on petrol.

A new set of jumper cables can save the day when your battery dies and also let you help others when they have the same problem.

Buying spare tools and car parts online to keep in your vehicle can help you save money regardless of how much you know about auto repair. Just remember to leave the bigger tasks for the professionals.
