Truck Accessories For Your Garage

Truck Accessories For Your Garage

These days many people cannot fit their vehicles into their garages and so they just become extra storage space for their house. However, if you are one of those lucky people who have a garage large enough to house your truck then there are plenty of truck accessories available for your garage. If not then they can mostly be just as well used with a car port or driveway.

One of the sad facts of life is that trucks have a tendency to drip oil, mud and general dirt onto whatever surface they are standing on. The oil stains the concrete and the rest just makes the garage a mess! To try and solve this problem it is probably best to install a durable garage mat to catch any unwanted liquids and dirt. They are easy to install and can be cleaned by a simple hosing down. If you are not worried about dirt and your truck never leaks oil then you may still want to invest in some small car mats which can be put under tires while you are doing detailing on your wheels to stop any of the tire dressing getting onto the floor.

If your truck can only just squeeze into your garage, or is in a 2 berth garage then you may worry about the doors knocking the walls or other vehicles when you open them. The best truck accessories for this situation are special plastic door ding guards or wall guards so that the open door has something softer to bang against when opened.

Backing a large truck into a constricted space isn’t the easiest maneuver to make. Luckily there are a range of products to suit every budget to help with this issue. The cheapest is the safety back up mirror which helps to remove the blind spots behind your vehicle. Another cheap option is a parking mat. This is a colourful rubber mat with 2 ridges on it. You place it in the correct place in your garage and then as you drive in you will feel yourself drive over the first ridge. This is the sign to stop! If you have a larger budget then a rear parking sensor, fitted to your number plate, is a must have for preventing mishaps. It uses ultra-sound sensors to detect objects behind your vehicle.
