What’s Under Your Hood?

suvHoodProtector.jpgMost drivers know that, under the hood of their vehicles, lies the engine. It’s important to understand, however, that there are actually many different systems and sensitive devices underneath the hood of your truck! There’s a cooling system that keeps your vehicle from overheating, a front end accessory drive system that powers, amongst other things, those warning lights that come on when you don’t have your seatbelt fastened, a synchronous system that keeps all the various parts of your vehicle working together properly, brake related accessories, windshield wiper related accessories, and a whole lot more!

Obviously, with so much going on under your hood, it’s a smart idea to invest in hood protectors. Good, strong hood protectors, such as the Hood Guard available from Auto Truck Depot, protect the exterior of your hood when you’re involved in a collision, but, even more importantly, they also protect your truck’s sensitive inner workings.

The Importance of Commercial Vehicle Insurance

If you have a van that you use specifically for work, then you may be required to hold specialized commercial vehicle insurance. This type of auto insurance will protect you, your van, and in some cases, even your work van equipment if you get into an accident during working hours or if your vehicle gets damaged at a job site. There are many different types of commercial vehicle insurance that you will need, including bodily injury liability coverage, which protects you in the event that you cause bodily injury to another driver, and property damage liability coverage, which covers you if you cause damage to another person’s property.

 If you carry around a lot of expensive work van equipment, as many professionals do, you should ask your insurance provider about insuring that equipment. That way, you may be able to recoup your losses if your equipment is damaged or destroyed due to an accident or collision.

The new Sprinter van also features Collision Prevention Assist, a unique feature that can detect when an accident is likely to occur and alert you to the problem in time for you to prevent it! These are just a couple of the great safety features offered for the new Sprinter van. And, what’s more is that you can enjoy your van even more with the impressive line of Sprinter products available through Auto Truck Depot.

Choose a Running Board That Will Work All Year!

A running board is a smart feature to add onto your truck, especially if children, elderly passengers, or anyone who is on the shorter side will be driving or riding in your vehicle. Trucks can be quite hard to climb into for people in these categories, but a running board can make entering and exiting your truck easy for everybody. Just make sure you choose one that’s strong and durable and, if you plan on having any larger passengers, consider the weight-holding capacity of different boards as you make your selection.

While almost any board will work during the summer months, be careful that you choose a board that will also serve you well in the winter! To avoid slips and falls, you need to make sure you choose a board with a no-slip surface that provides traction or “grip.” You can find quality boards that will get you and your passengers through the entire year safely at Auto Truck Depot.

Why You Need Truck Bumpers

Have you ever wondered what, exactly, truck bumpers are designed to do? They can seem rather pointless if you don’t understand their purpose, but they’re actually from far being useless. In fact, bumpers have many functions. One of the most important is to keep the front and back of your truck safe during a collision. Bumpers do their best at protecting your vehicle when the collision occurs at a low-speed. A very strong, high-quality bumper may even be able to prevent your vehicle’s front or back end from sustaining any damage!

Truck bumpers can protect several parts and components of your vehicle, including the truck’s hood and grille and even sensitive internal parts, such as your exhaust and cooling system! If you choose a nice, strong bumper, you could potentially save yourself thousands of dollars in damage if an accident occurs. While there are many bumpers to choose from, especially if you shop the wide selection at Auto Truck Depot, Luverne’s heavy duty rear truck bumpers come highly recommended!

Staying Safe in Your Truck!

Everyone deserves to feel safe and secure on the road. Fortunately, there are many great truck accessories that can keep you better-protected when you travel. Did you know, for example, that you can buy a blind spot mirror? These special mirrors show you exactly what’s going on in your “blind spot.” Without a blind spot mirror, you could miss seeing that oncoming car or other road danger, but with one, you can see anything and everything, keeping you more alert and better protected.

Truck grille guards are another great safety feature. They go on the front of your truck and protect the grille in the event of a collision or other potentially dangerous accident. With truck grille guards, the entire front of your truck is kept safe and the impact of the collision is reduced. You can also buy special wall and door guards and many other products. Keep your truck and your family safe by shopping for great protective items at Auto Truck Depot today!
