Your stuff is all packed up and secure in the truck. You turn to say goodbye to your house. The family starts to pile into the car. You hug your spouse and head for the driver’s seat.
After a quick seatbelt check, you’re all packed up and ready to go…or are you?
It is incredibly important to be prepared for your car trips, especially long ones. You may have mapped out your route, but there are a lot of variables that could affect your trip. What if you get a flat tire? Maybe one of your children gets a paper cut while coloring? Or there’s the inevitable throwing of the food.
A lot can happen in a 14 hour car ride. It’s a good idea to be prepared. You probably already have emergency numbers, insurance, registration, and the owner’s manual, but what about the other emergency kit items?
As a Pearland moving company, we take pride in delivering your items safe and sound. We want you to arrive at your destination safe and sound as well, so we have put together a list of items to pack for your trip.
- Spare Tire- Be
sure to have your mechanic check your spare before you leave. You don’t want to figure out that it is flat

you have everything needed to fix that tire. Sealant could also save you from
the trouble of changing a tire for a small leak.
- Medical Equipment-

medication especially prescription or allergy medication.
- Food- You don’t

hunger strikes. Pack some snacks and
water so you have something to nibble on if you are in a secluded area.
- Other Necessities-
There are plenty of other items you can add to that emergency kit. Paper and pencil, moist towelettes,
flashlight, duct tape, a small hammer and jumper cables are all good ideas. You’ll
want to be prepared for any situation, so do some research before you hit the
