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 sockets and spanners up to 32mm or 1 1/4″ (BSF), and the Whitworth equivalents. Occasionally I get bigger ones but the sockets are usually for 3/4″ or even 1″ Drives. The socket 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 am now carrying new trolley or bottle Jacks and 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 recently picked up a variety of parts and spares, some generic and some model specific. You may have to dig about a bit to find them though. I have also a couple of cleaning and maintenance sets from new cars.
Combination spanners have the same size at both ends, one ring and one open. The sets I sell are this type but I also have bundles of single make sets that can be just ring or open ended. I have a good selection of metric spanners of all types at present.
