If you’re driving around Massapequa, you want to make sure you’re prepared for the unexpected. In addition to getting regularly scheduled maintenance, check out this helpful emergency car kit guide from Land Rover Freeport, and take another step toward getting ready for your next road trip or off-road adventure.

Emergency DIY Kit

When thinking about how to put your emergency car kit together, a number of important factors are worth taking into consideration, such as:

  • Who will be in the car? – If it’s just your daily commuter, you won’t need to pack items for more than one person. But if you have a large family or pets you’ll be toting around, then make sure there are emergency items for everyone – friend or fido.
  • What is the regional terrain and weather like? – Driving through Garden City, you’re not going to need to plan to drive through a hurricane, but you could come up against difficult terrain in the Massapequa area. It’s best to plan ahead, but don’t pack more than the essentials.
