The summer months are one of the peak driving seasons of the year, and the hot weather and increased travel will put additional strain on your vehicle. To ensure that you are prepared for your summer drives, you can make an emergency kit for your car that contains supplies that you will need in the event of a breakdown or collision. Here is a closer look at what you should include in your summer emergency car kit:
Set of Tools
If your car breaks down unexpectedly on the road, a set of tools can help you make emergency repairs. When creating your summer emergency kit for your car, make sure to include basic tools such as jumper cables, pliers, wrenches, and a tire pressure gauge. By ensuring that you have the equipment needed to make simple emergency repairs, you will limit the amount of time you spend broken down on the side of the road.
When the weather heats up, your tire pressure will naturally increase. This increase in pressure can put you at risk for a sudden tire blowout. To ensure that you are ready to repair a blown out tire, your emergency kit should include a spare tire that is in good condition, as well as a tire jack and lug nut wrench.
Fresh water is an important component of any emergency car kit. By carrying water in your car, you will be able to refill your radiator if your engine begins to overheat. In addition, you will have access to drinking water if you end up stuck on the side of the road in hot weather.

The collision repair process is a mystery to most people. You take your damaged vehicle to an auto body shop, and when you come back a few days later, voila! Your vehicle is as good as new. In fact, quality collision repair makes expert use of art and technology to repair almost all kinds of damage. Here’s a brief look at the magic behind the quality collision repair process:
Before repairs can really begin, the auto body experts need to understand what they’re dealing with. After carefully examining the damage to your vehicle, the team members will explain which repairs are necessary in a clear, honest manner. We’ll also negotiate with your insurance company so you don’t have to pay an exorbitant amount for repairs.
Checking vehicle systems
After we analyze the exterior damage, we’ll document mileage, fuel level, and overall vehicle condition to ensure that your vehicle doesn’t need additional repairs. We’ll also clean your vehicle inside and out to make the repair process easier.
Duplicating factory finish
One of the hardest parts of collision repair is duplicating a vehicle’s paint color. Luckily, this is our specialty. Instead of applying slapdash patches of mismatched paint, we use advanced computer technology to match your paint color as precisely as possible. We then apply the paint in a pressurized downdraft “clean room” to minimize paint defects.
Quality control inspection
After reassembling and repainting your vehicle, our auto body specialists will perform a final inspection. During the inspection, we run through a checklist to ensure that your vehicle is as close to pre-accident condition as possible. We’ll then give your vehicle another thorough cleaning and give it back.
For high quality collision repair, bring your damaged vehicle to Dave’s Body Shop. We won’t just repair your vehicle—we’ll stand by our work with a Nationwide Lifetime Limited Warranty. Call us today at (801) 566-3906 if you have any questions about our auto body services.
