Always Keep Your Semi Truck Stocked With These ItemsThere are certain things all truck drivers should keep in their cab, no matter how long they have been on the road. Check out our list below to make sure you're prepared in case of an emergency. If you need expert semi truck and trailer repair while on the road, Custom T Repair offers 24/7 mobile service anywhere in the Greenbrier, Arkansas area.

Emergency Supplies

You will need to wait a while before a tow service arrives if you become stranded in a remote area, so it’s best to be prepared. Stock your cab with the following items:

  • Road flares and reflectors - set them out after you have pulled off the road as far as possible to improve visibility and help you avoid accidents
  • First aid kit - a basic kit should contain different sizes of bandages and topical medicines for minor injuries
  • Tool Kit - a kit for minor truck repairs is always handy. Keep tools such as wrenches, pliers, a screwdriver, electrical tape, and a flashlight
  • Map - In case your phone dies, you need to know where you are
  • Blanket - If you break down in a cold climate, a thermal blanket is your best option
  • Rations - Have some non-perishable snacks and water on hand. Nuts, dried fruit or meat, and protein bars will help you stay satiated

An Overnight Kit

Many jobs require late-night driving and overnight travel. Pack these items to stay comfortable:

  • Pack soap, shampoo, and any other shower essentials you normally use. Place them in a waterproof pouch that’s easy to carry
  • Deodorant/wet wipes
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • A full change of clothes
  • Extra glasses or contacts
  • An extra phone charger or battery
