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.

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.

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

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

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.

Tips for Traveling with Cargo

So, you’ve got your truck loaded down with cargo and are about to head out—not so fast, though. Did you know that, if you don’t take the proper precautions, traveling with a lot of cargo can be very dangerous? Fortunately, you can ensure safe travels by keeping a few simple tips in mind.
TonneauCovers.jpgFor starters, make sure you’ve packed only the bare necessities and that you haven’t gone over the recommended carrying weight for your vehicle. Carrying too much cargo cannot only reduce your gas mileage, causing you to have to stop and fill up more frequently, but it can also increase the risk of a vehicle rollover.

Once you’ve made sure that you aren’t carrying too much cargo, sit down in the driver’s seat and glance around to ensure that your cargo isn’t arranged in such a way so as to block your view of other drivers on the road. Also make sure that everything is properly secured and won’t go flying off the back of your vehicle. Tonneau covers can really come in handy for keeping items secured and, as an added bonus, they provide extra security for your cargo if you have to leave it unattended. You can find tonneau covers and other great cargo carrying accessories at Auto Truck Depot

Want a Terrific Truck Bed?

TonneauCovers.jpgThere are many wonderful advantages to owning and driving a truck. You’re higher up off the ground, enabling you to see anything and everything, and your truck bed allows you to easily transport cargo and other goods. Truck beds, in fact, are one of the very best things about trucks, but it’s important that you do your part to make your truck bed as terrific as it possibly can be. That includes protecting your truck bed from scratches and dings, which you can easily do with the right tonneau covers. 

Tonneau covers, such as the Access Roll Up Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot, tend to be very affordable and to prove incredibly useful.

You can also do a little truck decorating if you want! Consider adding in some mud flaps that feature a cartoon character you like, a band name, or anything that showcases your personal style. And, of course, keep your truck bed clean and clutter-free, for a neater, more streamlined appearance.

Don't Skip Out on Tonneau Covers

As a truck owner, there are a lot of good things you can do for your truck, such as buying only the highest quality parts and accessories and finding a reputable mechanic. There are also, however, some very bad things that you can do, things that can hurt your truck and shorten its lifespan. One thing to avoid is not buying the right accessories. It can be tempting to spend your money on “fun” accessories rather than necessary ones, but don’t do it. Things like tonneau covers, which protect your vehicle’s bed are absolutely necessary. Without tonneau covers, you not only run the risk of having your truck bed damaged but also of losing or causing damage to the cargo you carry.

Another big no-no of truck ownership is skipping out on regularly scheduled maintenance tasks. Every truck needs to have various maintenance jobs performed at least once a month. Many of these are simple enough that you can do them yourself, so there’s no reason not to take care of them. Consult your truck’s owner’s manual or visit your mechanic to work out a reasonable maintenance schedule that will allow your truck to run strong for many years to come.

Above, it was mentioned that some maintenance tasks can be performed by you, rather than by a qualified mechanic. Keep in mind, however, that this does not apply for more serious tasks or if you don’t have a good, working knowledge of your vehicle. There is nothing wrong with not being a professional mechanic, but there is something wrong with acting like one without the knowledge to back it up.

It’s so easy for tree branches, rocks, sticks, and other debris to bounce up while you drive and to hit and damage your truck bed. Fortunately for you, your cover will keep those items from coming into contact with the truck bed and for creating scratches and dings that can be costly and difficult to repair. Another major benefit is that your belongings will be protected, both from damage that can occur on the road and from theft. Your items are also protected from harsh weather conditions, including rain and snow.

Once you start shopping covers, you will see that you have lots of options to choose from. While you’re encouraged to look at all the covers that will work with your particular truck, make sure you don’t miss the Access Roll Up Cover. This very affordable model is great because it’s there when you need to use it and out of sight when you don’t!

Going Fishing? Tonneau Covers Are in Order

Retrax Tonneau CoverWhen most people think of fishing, they think of old men wearing silly hats and sitting out by a lake or river hoping to catch a bite. If you’re a fisherman (or woman!), however, you know how silly this conception is. Fishing is a serious and incredibly fun sport, one that requires diligence, patience, and a lot of expensive equipment. What you need to realize, however, is that all of that expensive equipment can be left vulnerable if you’re leaving it out in the open. Most people don’t think anything about walking away from a truck bed or a car trunk that’s filled with expensive fishing poles, lures, and tackles. However, such vehicles make easy targets for thieves.

There are many ways that you can protect your fishing gear and your vehicle in general. You can choose to stay close by it at all times, but where’s the fun in that? No one wants to be ever-watchful and vigilant on a carefree fishing trip! There are also car alarms to install, but those can be pricey. One very simple and very effective way to keep your fishing gear safe is through—believe it or not—tonneau covers!

Tonneau covers, such as the much-loved Retrax, are designed to protect trucks from weather damage and general scuffs and scratches. However, they can also serve as a wonderful deterrent to thieves. It takes a lot more work to determine how to lift a cover, to actually do it, and then to take the goods without being noticed than it does to simply reach into an uncovered truck and make a clean getaway. So, as you can see,  this simple product can protect you in more ways than one!

Tonneau Covers Designed for Ease

Access Rollup Tonneau Cover
If you’ve got a truck, then you need to be using a tonneau cover. Tonneau covers come in a wide range of different styles and designs, and it’s important that you find the perfect one to suit your needs. One of the more common types of tonneau covers are roll-up covers. These covers are usually crafted from vinyl and are designed to attach to your truck’s bed. They have the advantage of being some of the cheapest covers on the market , and also of being super lightweight, easy to install, and easy to remove and reattach when necessary. However, their one disadvantage is that they are generally not as secure as other types of covers.

For affordability plus extra security, you should check out snap covers. They are generally fairly cheap, but are made more secure by the fact that they actually snap into place over your truck’s bed frame. Sure, they might take more time to attach and to detach, but you’ll never have to worry about losing your cover.

Folding covers are a good choice too! They feature multiple panels that fold together to cover or uncover your truck’s bed. You’ve also got retractable covers, hinged covers, low profile covers, locking covers, hard covers, soft covers , and many other types to choose from.

No matter what cover you ultimately decide upon, rest assured that Auto Truck Depot has you covered (pun intended!). The shop has every kind of cover you could ever want, and each one is guaranteed to be high quality and extra durable. Definitely check out the Access roll-up cover if you’re looking to save on cash. It will work great, while still costing under $500.

One such cover is definitely the BakFlip F1. It has an amazing, state-of the art tri-fold system, making it incredibly easy to use and also keeping all of your belongings fully safe from even the toughest natural elements.

In fact, the strength and durability of the BakFlip is what makes it stand out above other covers of its type. While most covers need to be replaced in just a few years, you can expect the BakFlip to last indefinitely.

You might expect to pay a small fortune for such a cover, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that this particular product is very affordable if you order it through Auto Truck Depot. With this retailer’s awesome “price matching promise,” you really can’t go wrong. The seller promises to have the lowest price for this exact product.

Fiberglass Tonneau Covers are the Most Stylish Tonneau Covers Around

Tonneau covers are an excellent, simple, and stylish way for truck owners to protect the precious cargo they carry around in the bed of their trucks. These covers, which are available in many different styles and sizes, are options that anyone can afford, and they are also super customizable. No matter what you are looking for in a cover, though, you can definitely find your perfect match with the wide selection offered by Auto Truck Depot. After all, with so many products in stock, this company is bound to have something for everyone.

Fiberglass tonneau covers are actually a huge seller right now, both for that particular company and just in general. The main reason for this is the fact that fiberglass is such a tough material. It really can stand up to or take anything; it’s virtually indestructible. Despite its incredible strength, though, fiberglass is also lightweight, which makes it easy to transport and to handle. Fiberglass tonneau covers also look great—they are not overly noticeable, so they don’t attract from your truck’s natural beauty. Plus, they come in many different styles, like the popular hinged style, so that you can achieve the exact look and feel you had in mind.

Of course, with so many tonneau covers on the market, you’ll want to take a look yourself and decide which option is right for you. Definitely do give the fiberglass covers a shot though. Very few people are able to pass these great covers up, and just about everyone who buys one ends up being happy with their decision in the long run.
