Getting Started: Basic Supplies
Let’s say you are building an auto repair garage from scratch. What type of equipment and tools would you need? Great lighting is a must, so make sure you have a lot of lighting options to help you see properly under the hood and underneath the vehicle while making repairs. Safety is also important, so it pays to have a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, smoke alarm and even a carbon monoxide detector installed. Check the batteries twice each year to make sure that everything is in good working order. If you are working on something new, don’t forget to stop by LaCava Brothers to get a repair manual for the exact make and model of your vehicle. It is a good idea to have this on hand even if you are very experienced with auto repairs.
Jacks and lifts are also important, so you can get your vehicle safely up off the ground for work and repairs. Choose from a simple jack and stand set on up to a professional-grade lift for your garage, depending on your unique needs and budget. Locking tool boxes are important to make sure that everything stays where you put it. If you have any amount of tools in your garage, you will want to ensure that it is well locked and protected. Secondary protections on tool boxes are extremely beneficial as well, so it pays to plan ahead when purchasing equipment, tools and storage options for your auto repair garage.
