Winter Emergency Car Kit

Emergency kit , car jack, jumper cables for car on white back ground

The best car emergency kits will include everything you need to endure worst-case scenarios during the winter months in Jersey City, and here at Land Rover Englewood, we want to do everything in our power to keep our drivers safe and sound on the roads near and far from home. Building a winter emergency car kit can be stressful–but it doesn’t have to be!

We’ve put together a comprehensive list of what you’ll need below! Most supplies can be picked up at our parts department or at your favorite local department store.

Winter Car Safety Kit

Even if you’re not planning to make any major trips this year, here’s what you’ll want to include in your winter car safety kit:

  • Battery cables
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Flashlight with backup batteries
  • Warning signaling cones
  • Safety vest and roadside triangles
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit
  • Gloves and blankets
  • Rain poncho
  • Rags
  • Boots
  • Winter hat
  • Hand and foot warmers

We know that the prospect of making emergency repairs on the side of the road is never really an appealing one, and that goes double when the temperature starts to drop near Fort Lee and New York City. Although you may have access to roadside assistance, carrying an emergency tool kit for your car could come in handy one day. If you’re not sure of what tools to include, just reach out to our parts team.

Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

Although the items highlighted above are often enough to keep you safe while you wait for help to arrive, those who do a lot of winter driving and those who want to be prepared for anything would be wise to include a few extra things in their trunk:

  • Tow strap: If you get stuck in a ditch, you may need to wait hours for a tow truck to arrive. Carrying a tow strap allows a wider range of vehicles to help you out of a bind, so you may be able to get moving again more quickly.
  • Fire extinguisher: Even in the winter, you need to be prepared to put out fires! You’ll want to secure a fire extinguisher that’s appropriate for automotive use at our parts department.
  • Long-lasting food and water: Granola bars and distilled water can last for up to six months before they need to be replaced. You’ll want to stock up on emergency rations, since hunger makes even small emergencies seem that much more stressful.

Be Prepared for Winter With Land Rover Englewood!

We’ve covered all of the items that you’ll want to have in your winter emergency car kit, but there are a few more things you should do to get ready for the colder months!

  • Winter tires can dramatically improve your handling capabilities and provide a much safer ride.
  • Since cold weather can take the last bit of energy out of a dead battery or prevent other components from operating at their best, it’s a good idea to schedule a winter tune-up with the service center at our dealership. (If you’ve been having electrical issues, we can help you determine if the problem falls with your battery or your alternator.)

If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out!
