Whether you are doing routine maintenance or doing up an old car I have what you need, although I do not normally carry fluids such as oil and screenwash. I carry both imperial and metric spanners up to 50mm or 1 3/8W, and the BSF equivalents. The loose sockets are up to 32mm. Occasionally I get the bigger sockets but are usually for 3/4″ or even 1″ Drives. The sets are mostly new.  A decent set should cost £30+ but, IME people are reluctant to pay it. Having said that I do have some better quality sets in the £40-£60 range. Most of the old spanners are good names such as Britool, with a smattering of Geodore, Bedford, and so on.

I  usually have axle stands and/or ramps. I have foot-pumps and usually inflators that work from the cigarette lighter. I don’t tend to stock the jump starters as the batteries deteriorate but I normally have mains chargers

I have bought in De-icer, basically for myself but will sell at £1 per bottle.


Open Ended Spanner Combination Spanner Ring Spanner
