In the Philippines, Foton trucks and other brands come with the best parts and safety equipment around. But that doesn’t mean that there’s no room for improvement! Most truck drivers try to prepare themselves with a list of interior accessories to purchase before buying a truck for sale in the Philippines. The interior accessories that we suggest cater to emergency situations and to keep you and your truck performing optimally. Here are some of the best interior accessories for your truck:
Keeping the interior of your truck clean should be as important as maintaining your truck’s engine. A dirty truck could invite pests, foul odor, tarnish interior finish, and ruin the overall quality of your interior. Everyone wants a clean ride. You could have your truck cleaned out professionally, but speaking realistically, most truck drivers are always on the go and rarely have the time to visit truck cleaning services.
Luckily, there are mobile vacuum cleaners that you can purchase for your truck. Some are wireless and battery operated while most are powered by your truck’s built-in 12V socket. With just a push of a button and a bit of effort, these mobile vacuum cleaners will help keep your interior spic and span!
First Aid Kit
Having a first aid kit in your truck is essential. When driving, you should always be prepared for the worst. No matter how good of a driver you are or how well you follow the road rules, there’s still a possibility of getting into an accident. Your first aid kit is not strictly for you only; if others need assistance, you can help them out too. You never know when you need to aid yourself or others on the road.
You could purchase first aid kits that include everything you need or you could prepare your own. If you prefer the latter option, then here’s what you need to gather:
- Abdominal bandages
- Adhesive bandages
- Cotton pads
- Elastic bandages
- Metal tweezers
- Razor blade
- A whistle
- Safety pins
- A flashlight
- Vinyl gloves
- Face mask
Make sure to keep your first aid kit within your reach; consider the fact that you may have to patch yourself up, in certain situations.
Multi-Purpose Lubricant Spray
Keeping at least one can of all-purpose silicone spray or WD-40 is handy and could temporarily provide some on the go quick-fixes. If your truck is experiencing some minor mechanical issues, in most cases, a multi-purpose lubricant spray will do the job. You’ll be amazed at the wonders that these multi-purpose lubricant sprays can do for your truck. If a truck you got for sale in the Philippines is showing signs of mechanical issues, you can use these sprays as a temporary measure. What else can a multi-purpose spray be used for? They can help reduce friction, remove excess grease, penetrate stuck parts, protect metal components from rust and remove rust.
Memory Foam Neck Pillow
Comfort on the road is important to keep you alert and in top driving shape. Long drives can be tiring; it puts a lot of strain on your neck and back. You could acquire a stiff neck and back pains from driving for hours. Driving exposes your spine to a lot of vibrations and sudden jolts from the road. Truck seats are usually not shaped to perfectly fit everyone’s back. The universal design of auto seats is not as universal as one thinks. To ensure maximum comfort, we suggest truck drivers get a memory foam neck pillow. When you feel totally comfortable on the road, your driving inputs will be better, you’ll be more alert and keen on the road. The distraction of discomfort will never bother you.
Flat Tire Sealers
Flat tire sealers are important for emergency purposes. You never know when your tires are going to give, which is why it’s important to be prepared for such situations. You never want to be stuck on the road with no solution for your flat tire. There’s always the option to replace your tire on the road, but when you need to buy yourself some time or find yourself in a dangerous situation to replace your tire, flat tire sealers could be useful.
These flat tire sealers seal your tire’s puncture to allow you to drive for a certain distance. You can’t drive too far with a remedied flat tire, though. These are only temporary fixes for you to drive to a safe location for a tire change. They’re easy and quick to use.
Blind Spot Mirrors
Foton trucks in the Philippines and other truck brands are equipped with a set of mirrors that try to cover blind spots around your truck. Sadly, the stock side-view mirrors of a truck can’t always encompass every blind spot. Luckily, you could purchase blind spot mirrors for your truck. These come as small convex mirrors that give you a wider, fish-eye rear view that could cover certain blind spots that your stock mirrors miss out on. Blind spot mirrors are relatively inexpensive and are usually always available in vehicle accessory stores. This increases the overall safety of the driver and those around him/her.
Modern trucks available in the market are equipped with the best gear to improve driver usability, safety, and truck performance. However, there are still accessories out there that could enhance your driving experience and ensure the longevity of your vehicle. Essentially, preparing yourself for emergency situations should also be a consideration when buying accessories for your truck. So remember to drive safe, be prepared for anything, and keep your truck in top shape, inside and out.
