Semi Truck Accessories Are
Your Best Advertisement
By Michael Chase
The best way to add value to your semi-trailer truck is to accessorize
it. While these words may seem like a sales pitch by an accessory
dealer, the fact is that often the first thing noticed by a potential
customer for a trucker's services is his equipment. If the truck, or the
whole fleet for that matter, looks well kept and attractive, the
impression of that business is positive. This is true for a tow
operator, fruit and produce distributor, over-the-road hauler, even
sanitation pick-up and septic tank services.
Pride in a job well done and concern for customer service is reflected
in the way a big rig is maintained. This can accomplished with a simple
but well thought out paint job, and can go to the extreme with elaborate
lighting and chrome accessories. For example, semi truck wheels can be
simply painted and decorated with lug nut covers, or they can be covered
with a variety of wheel accessories like axle covers or complete
stainless simulators. A more expensive choice would be aluminum wheels
with stainless axle covers and lug nut covers.
Increase Safety and Looks with LED Lights
Lighting is another method of displaying pride in your ride. Besides
adding to the safety factor, today's LED lights use a minimum of
amperage and deliver a big wallop. A trucker can use ten times the
number of lights than in past years, and yet not draw any more power
from the battery. LED lights are available in a large variety of styles
and colors, and can be installed in unusual places on the vehicle - in
wheel wells, in the grille, on a visor and in air breathers.
Big Rig Accessories Make Long Hours Behind the Wheel Enjoyable
Other standard equipment - fenders, bumpers, tool boxes, exhaust pipes,
mud flaps - can be left in stock condition, but are often seen in chrome
and stainless. These all contribute to a fine public image of your
truck. Interior accessories, while not necessarily visible to the
public, also give a sense of pride of ownership and make the long hours
spent in the cab more pleasant. For example, there are dashboard
accessories, designer steering wheels and gear shift knobs. Chrome and
stainless accessories are available for most semi truck models, and
custom items can often be fabricated. In all, these items add a touch of
class to any big rig!
