How to Make the Most Out of Your Work Truck

How to Make the Most Out of Your Work Truck

If you are driving for work and are a proud truck owner, visiting your customers all over the country or the region, it is important that you don’t just have a reliable workhorse, but also one that is enjoyable to drive. While the comfort level of your basic 4×4 truck cannot compete with your luxury sedan’s, you will be able to make some small adjustments that will make commuting to and from projects more enjoyable. Below you will find a few tips on how to get started.

Customize It

One of the things you can carry out cheap is customizing the exterior and the interior of the truck. You might already have your company logo on, but a custom feature, sticker, or even a new grille will make it stand out much more. You will have to ensure that you are keeping safety in mind when adding features or even tune up your engine. Consider the roads you are driving on, so you can make the most out of your traction and ergonomics.

Add Entertainment

When you have to drive a lot in your truck, it is crucial that you keep yourself entertained. Long distance driving takes a lot out of you, and you need to ensure that you are staying alert and don’t get fed up with sitting behind the wheel. From a Satellite radio that works everywhere  to podcast and audiobook streaming apps, as well as a massage chair to protect your joints, you can add some custom features to your truck that will make you feel home.

Improve the Traction

Building sites can be tricky to get to and get through. That is why workers’ trucks were invented. You might already have larger wheels and four-wheel drive, but you can also add some packages that will help you monitor and improve your traction whenever you hit the dirt road or the pebbles, maybe are facing extreme weather conditions on the road.

Load Distribution

If you are running your own business, it is important that you distribute the load carefully to make the most out of your fuel efficiency. You can get shelving and storage installed that will not only help you make the most out of your space, but also save you time on finding the right tools or materials to do the job.

Make Loading and Unloading Easier

When you are delivering goods or take your own materials and tools to the site, you will need to save time on loading and unloading. You can get special Custom Lifts & Suspension packages that will help you protect your muscles and lower back and reduce the time it takes you to set up the workspace and carry out your job.

If you are running your construction or engineering business, you need to have a reliable truck that will carry the load and work as hard as you do. Add these custom features to make driving your workhorse more enjoyable and save time and money when carrying out your work.

Greener-on-the-go

Greener-on-the-go

You’d probably count yourself as someone who really does care about the environment and the impact you have on it. As such you do your bit through recycling, cutting down on plastics, trying to not waste food and buying from sustainable food sources as often as you can. Yet still you know you can do more but don’t seem to be able to find the time.
How can you be greener-on-the-go and stay in budget? It is possible. Here are our top tips for reducing even more waste and greening up your life:

Drink more, pay less

Lifestyle bloggers and health gurus across the planet extol the virtue of drinking more water. It’s great for our skin, for our energy levels and the functions of all our vital organs. Drinking more water is a no brainer when it comes to our health but what’s not so healthy are the millions of plastic water bottles that end up in our seas, lakes and oceans. They are a scourge to marine life and one of the biggest sources of pollution on the planet. The answer?
Reusable bottles. The great thing about these bottles is, unlike their plastic counterparts, they’re not boring or a standard design at all. You can buy customized, funky designs that will fit neatly into a bag and you’re all set. The other great thing about reusable water bottles is that there are a growing number of cafes and stores that will top up reusable bottles for free in a bid to encourage responsible water consumption.

This same good news applies to coffee lovers. Invest in a reusable coffee cup and save money on your daily latte with hundreds of coffee chains and independents offering money off or free refills for customers choosing an ethical option. Saving money and reducing plastic waste never felt more stylish.

BYO

Bring your own containers out shopping to your local grocery store when you’re doing your weekly shop. Ask for your fresh meat to be placed straight into a reusable plastic container from home rather than picking up a product covered in layers of plastic wrap that can’t be recycled. It’s easier to place straight into the fridge or freezer and easier to remove when you need to cook it up. The container can be used over and over and you can feel pretty good knowing you’ve made an ethical shopping decision without any added expense.

Similarly, with vegetables, avoid using disposable bags or buying pre-packed just set aside a sturdy hold-all that you don’t mind getting a little dirty, to put them straight into.

Whether you’re a busy personal injury attorney, parent or entrepreneur these two tips will save you both time and money while having an impact on the environment. Make a commitment today, snap up a stylish water bottle and reusable coffee cup and you’ll be making an investment into a more sustainable and greener future and help in the battle against plastic pollution across the globe.
