Prepare Your Truck Bed for Winter with a Tonneau Cover

Hauling cargo safely is always more difficult in the winter. Freezing rain, moisture, ice, and snow can be threatening to your cargo, but there are various ways to protect your truck bed from the elements, and one of the most popular methods is with a tonneau cover.
A tonneau cover will protect your truck bed from moisture, rain, and snow to keep your cargo safe and dry. It will also add another level of security to the cargo you're hauling and make your life a little easier. Auto Truck Depot carries a wide variety of tonneau covers so you can get exactly what you need. Here are some examples, and the benefits they provide.

Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers

BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot
Tri-Fold tonneau covers consist of three folding panels that cover your truck bed. Many models of Tri-Fold tonneau covers, such as the BAKFlip G2, have panels that lock into multiple positions, so you can drive with it open, shut or in between. The folding panels keep your gear safe from the elements while at the same time adding security for your cargo. The panels can be opened to provide truck bed access when needed. For the most part, these tonneau covers have heavy duty powder coated aluminum panels to provide unprecedented strength and security for your truck bed, although soft tri-Fold tonneau Covers, like the Extang eMax are also available. 

Roll-Up Tonneau Covers

Roll-Up tonneau covers like the Access Original Roll-Up Tonneau Cover are popular because they are easy to use, lightweight, they look great, and can fold up to provide 100% truck bed access. 
BAK Revolver X2 Roll-Up Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot
There are various hybrid roll-up tonneau covers that have all the benefits of a soft roll-up and hard tonneau cover in one, like the BAK Revolver X2. The Revolver X2 is made up of rotational locking rails that secure the entire length of your truck bed on each side. The Revolver X2 can be easily rolled up with one hand to provide 100% truck bed access, and without blocking your rear view window or restricting access to stake pocket holes.

Retractable Tonneau Covers

Roll-N-Lock M Series Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot
Retractable tonneau covers retract into a canister at the cab end of your truck bed. They operate on a bearing system, and some are even controlled via remote. Retractable covers like the Roll-N-Lock M Series opens and closes smoothly, and interlocking hinges allow for a smooth operation. Interlocking hinges increase this covers strength while adding to its smooth operation, and with an automatic tailgate lock, you will never have to worry about the security of your truck bed.

Hard Tonneau Covers

Last, but not least, are Hard One-Piece tonneau covers, which are constructed of a single solid piece and provide the most security of any tonneau cover. The UnderCover LUX is a strong, lightweight, and attractive hard tonneau cover. This cover is made of a durable, lightweight ABS composite material that exceeds any fiberglass hardtop cover. The cover features a single point lock control that operates both locking hinges to make getting in and out of your truck bed simple and secure. The clean, low profile design looks sleek and enhances fuel mileage, and with this cover's full perimeter seal, your cargo is completely protected from the elements.

Seal Your Truck Bed

Extang MaxSeal Tailgate Seal from Auto Truck Depot
Once you have decided on a tonneau cover, the next step is making sure your truck bed is completely sealed from moisture and debris, which can be done with Extang's Maxseal Tailgate Seal. MaxSeal keeps debris, dust, rain and snow out of your truck bed and is easy to install. MaxSeal comes in a universal length and can be used on any Year, Make, or Model, with any lid, tonneau or top. MaxSeal is made of industrial strength all-weather rubber that is sure to last through even the most extreme conditions.
Auto Truck Depot has a wide range of products available to help you seal up your truck bed for winter, no matter what truck you have.

Winterize Your Vehicle at Auto Truck Depot

Winter is a word that many of us in Canada don't like to use. This could be for a variety of reasons, whether it's an aversion to the difficult  climate that comes with it or simply the lack of warm, sunny days. But winter isn't the end, my friends! We are Canadians, and what do we do in the face of cold, snow, and adversity? We bundle up, pad our gear, and truck on nonetheless! Don't let winter slow you, or your vehicle! Bring your truck, car, or van in to Auto Truck Depot and we will get you set to ensure that the winter conditions don't inhibit or damage it. We may be a couple months away, but it's never too late to get your truck in order.
Undercoating is just one of many options that the Auto Truck Depot offers to keep your vehicle in tip top shape. Salt is great for keeping ice off the roads and preventing slippery conditions, but when you're cruising at highway speeds that salt is flung up into the underside of your vehicle.
There's a lot of important stuff down there, like your muffler, oil pan, exhaust, and countless other pieces of metal that make your vehicle run smoothly. A buildup of salt is bad enough, but when mixed with water it provides the perfect breeding ground for colonies of rust. Our professionals will apply undercoating to protect your vehicle's guts not just from rust, but also guard against impacts from rocks and other road debris to prevent cracking and other damage. Not only that, but undercoating will even dampen vibrations and travel noise! For more details, check out the link above.
It isn't just your vehicle's underbelly that is subject to rust. Until we stop building our vehicles with steel, the majority of their components can rust. On the surface, rust can be an annoyance, damaging your vehicle's paint and panels and leaving it looking old and worn. But that's not the worst scenario. Deep inside the crevices of your truck, there are hundreds upon hundreds of spot welds, joints, elbows, and other vulnerable locations. Salt and moisture build up in out of sight places is often overlooked and is nearly impossible to clean. The result? Patches of rust forming on the chassis of your vehicle, on support columns, sway bars, axles, and countless other places. If left unchecked, these rust patches can severely damage the steel and affect the structural integrity of your vehicle. Our professionals will apply Rust Check to help stop the formation of rust, and even remove some of it! Check out our services page to find out more!
We also perform the highly precise task of applying paint protection film on your vehicle. This film not only helps seal out moisture to aide rustproofing agents, it also protects your paint from rocks, bugs, and other road debris that could cause chips and peeling paint.
A dirty vehicle interior can not only be gross and annoying, it can also present health hazards. Buildup of insects, eggs, dust, dirt, and other materials that may have been dragged in by your boots and clothes can lead to colds, allergy problems, and many other inconveniences. Besides, who wants to sit for hours in a dirty car? Don't wait for spring cleaning, bring your vehicle in to Auto Truck Depot for our professional detailing, and we will ensure that when you're sitting in your car keeping warm this winter, you'll be comfortable.
We offer a wide variety of interior cleaning services and packages, including leather and fabric protection to prevent stains and make cleanup easier, and various interior and exterior detailing packages. Check them out and make sure your vehicle is ready for the upcoming winter months!

Get the Most Out of Your Truck Bed

There’s no denial that trucks are one of the most useful vehicles you can own. They can carry cargo, pull trailers, and ultimately, increase efficiency. One of the primary benefits to having a truck is the additional space of the truck bed.

There are many products available to help you maximize the use of your truck bed space, but why would you need these?

Let’s start with some examples of common issues you may run into and some available solutions.


1. Your truck bed is being damaged from hauling cargo

This problem is not only aesthetic, but can accelerate damage beyond repair. Nicks and scratches in the protective coating can soon result in the spread of rust.

Solutions:
Truck Bed Mats
Truck bed mats are easy to install, cheap, and provide protection to the bottom of your truck bed and tailgate. The only downside to these is that the sides of your truck bed remain exposed.

Plastic Bed Plastic Liners
Plastic bed liners are quick and easy to install and provide full protection of your truck bed. They are made of high-density polyethylene, so it will not chip, crack, or fade during even the most extreme weather conditions. The liner’s one-piece construction provides additional protection against chemical leaks, since there are no seams or cracks.
Truck Bed Spray Liners
Spray liners provide a clean, permanent solution for protecting your truck bed. The Polyurethane Spray is applied to every mould and curve, providing a watertight seal, and the ultimate protection. Spray liners provide a textured, non-skid surface, and with no loss of cargo space.



2. Your cargo is exposed to the elements

Covering your cargo and protecting it from the elements can be easy with a tonneau cover, and there are many types so suite your specific needs.

Solutions:
Soft or Hard Roll-Up Tonneau Cover
Roll-up tonneau covers are great additions to cover and protect the cargo being stored in your truck bed. They easily roll up, providing full access of your truck bed without removing the cover, and they look slick.

Soft or Hard Tri Fold Tonneau Cover
These covers provide exceptional protection, they look great, and are easy to use. The tri-fold design allows for easy access. Many of these models are also insulated to protect your cargo from extreme weather conditions.

Hard Top Once Piece Tonneau Cover
One piece covers are solid, they protect your cargo, and they are easy to install. Once installed, they provide easy access to your cargo. 


3. There’s no way to prevent theft

Solutions:
Tonneau Cover
Many Tonneau covers are designed with locking systems to protect your storage. Your cargo can be easily stored, locked and protected with the right cover.


Truck Boxes
Truck Boxes come in all shapes and sizes to meet your specific needs, and they are designed to hold and protect your belongings. Many of these boxes are designed with advanced locking systems and are constructed of tough aluminum. They come in all shapes and sizes to match any need.


4. Organizing your storage is difficult

Solutions:
Truck Boxes
Multiple lid truck boxes allow you to organize and store your cargo, provide security to your belongings, and provide easy access. There are many different box styles and shapes to suite your specific needs, and to help you organize your belongings. Many of these boxes are even designed to utilize and increase storage space, such as the Pork Chop Boxes, made to fit over your wheel well.  

Tool Boxes
Tool boxes are a great way to enhance your storage by providing a secure, organized space for tools and other belongings. Many of these boxes are designed to increase otherwise unused spaces, such as the Weatherguard Lo Side, which sits above your truck box, allowing for more storage beneath. The compartments in these boxes improve how you are able to organize your storage, and provide additional storage space.
