The holiday season is finally here and for many of us that means traveling. We all are familiar with creating packing checklists, checking them twice and making sure we are over prepared for whatever the holiday may bring. However, while remembering to pack the gifts, that extra charger, our toothbrushes and ensuring the kids don’t forget their jackets, we often overlook the importance of roadside assistance tools.

Did you know that according to NBC News, approximately 60% of people don’t know how to change a flat tire? As if that weren’t scary enough, according to 28% of new cars sold in 2017 didn’t even come with a spare tire. If you find yourself in the lucky 40% of the population who does know how to change a flat tire, can you imagine being stuck on an empty road with no cell service, the kids crying in the back, and no spare tire? That would likely put a damper on your holiday vacation to say the least.

Changing a spare tire may not be the easiest task, but it can be done and it’s worth learning how to do. According to, you should always have the following tire-changing essentials in your car: a spare tire, a jack, a lug wrench, a flashlight with working batteries, flares, reflective triangles, gloves, wheel wedges and a flat tire repair kit. Having these items in your car is essential. And knowing how to use them is even more important. This holiday season, make sure you don’t overlook the importance of roadside assistance tools when you’re making your list and checking it twice.

From Brenkus Realty Network to you…Happy Holidays and safe travels!
