Thanksgiving Travel Tips to Keep You Safe on the Road

November 26th, 2014

Thanksgiving Travel Tips

Have the past couple of days had you thinking about turkey, hot gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin pie? Thanksgiving is almost here, and we can’t wait. The only downside to the Thanksgiving holiday is the travel time. As we all know, the day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year. That’s why Trick Trucks wants to give you a few travel tips to keep you safe amongst all that road rage. Wherever you’re driving, keep these travel tips in mind this Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Travel Tips to Keep You Safe on the Road

  1. Slow and steady wins the race. Actually, it’s not really a race at all. If you find yourself becoming agitated on the road, take a deep breath and slow down. You shouldn’t be in any rush to get to your destination, and speeding will only make the environment more dangerous for yourself and others. Leave your house extra early so you can allow yourself plenty of time to get to your destination without rushing.

  2. Be prepared in the event of an emergency. Here in Maryland, we’re expecting snow the day before Thanksgiving. Wherever you’ll be celebrating, be sure that you’re prepared to deal with extreme weather or other emergency conditions. Fill up your gas tank, pack snow scrapers, make sure you have a spare tire and make sure your defrosters and windshield wipers work properly. You may even want to put together a car emergency kit just in case, or buy one at the store.

  3. Know where you’re going. Before you depart, take a look at the directions ahead of time so you have a basic idea of where you’re going. In the car, use a GPS. Not only will it help with navigation, but it can also inform you of traffic ahead, give you alternate routes, and let you know where there are rest stops or gas stations.

  4. Pack smart. Be sure not to pack too much into the car that you cannot see out your rear window, and make sure everything is secure and will not roll around. Also, be sure to pack snacks, games, music, and movies to keep the kids busy during the drive. If traveling with pets, you may also want to pack some treats and toys.

  5. Safety is key. This seems like an obvious tip, but safety is the most important thing when you’re on the road. Buckle up, secure pets in a crate or harness, put down the cell phone, be patient and take control. You’ll be there before you know it.

Trick Trucks wants to wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Lift Kit Installation Shops in Delaware

November 18th, 2014

Lift Kit Delaware‘Tis the season to…trick your truck!

With the holidays quickly approaching, many people are heading to their local malls, shopping centers, and retail stores to try and find the perfect gifts for their friends and family. ‘Tis the season of giving, after all. Well, why not give yourself the perfect holiday gift this year: a new Lift Kit.

Suspension lift kits alter your 4X4’s suspension to increase ground clearance and improve performance, especially for truck owners who enjoy off-roading. A suspension lift kit raises the height of the vehicle to provide a steeper approach, higher ground clearance, and the ability to accommodate larger wheels and tires.

Lift Kit Installation Shops in Delaware

For more than 30 years, Trick Trucks has been helping people like you customize their trucks. Let us help you! Each location, throughout Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and West Virginia, offers full service, factory authorized installation of all of our truck parts and accessories, including suspension lift kits. All of our work is guaranteed and all factory warranties apply.

Lift Kit Benefits

Better Traction for Off-Roading

If you are a fan of off-roading, a lift kit is the perfect addition to your truck. Lift kits allow for bigger tires, which can help improve traction and allow you to more easily roll over things (rocks, logs, etc.) you find in the great outdoors. Lift kits also help raise your truck 1-12 inches or more, improving clearance. Additionally, lift kits increase clearance between axles, which helps increase vehicle flex, improving handling.

That Wow Factor

Lift kits are not only functional, but they also help improve the aesthetics of your truck. As you drive down the road, heads will be sure to turn as your newly lifted truck doesn’t just draw attention…it demands it!

And More!

If you have any questions about Lift Kit Installation, please contact Trick Trucks today by calling 1-866-60 TRICK or click here! We also invite you to explore our many Interior Truck Accessories and Exterior Truck Accessories while you’re here.

It’s Tonneau Cover Time for Truck Owners in West Virginia

November 13th, 2014

Tonneau Cover West VirginiaTruck owners who live in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, and Delware have one thing in common. They are just a short drive away from the Trick Trucks nearest them. And this is great news with winter right around the corner. There has never been a better to stop by Trick Trucks and finally buy that Tonneau Cover you have been eyeing for quite some time.

Tonneau Cover Installation in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware

Trick Trucks offers full service, factory authorized installation of all truck parts and accessories, including truck roof racks, at each of its convenient locations throughout Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and West Virginia. All of our work is guaranteed and all factory warrantees apply.

Winter is Coming! Protect Your Precious Cargo.

Climate experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Farmer’s Almanac are predicting another harsh winter here on the East Coast. And you know what that means: SNOW! Are you ready? More importantly, is your truck ready?

Trucks are great for so many reasons. Perhaps the biggest is the ability to haul big loads and large cargo. Unfortunately, the same thing that makes this possible – your truck bed – also becomes a bit of a liability in the winter. How do you protect your precious cargo from the snow? Or, if you aren’t hauling anything, how do you keep snow out of your truck bed so it is ready when you do need to haul something? The answer: a Tonneau Cover.

Protective tonneau covers come in two primary styles – hard covers (fiberglass) and soft covers (vinyl fabric stretched over an aluminum frame) – both of which provide the added protection you are looking for while also giving your truck a sleeker, more aesthetically appealing look.

If you have any questions about Tonneau Cover Installation, please contact Trick Trucks today by calling 1-866-60 TRICK or click here! We also invite you to explore our many Interior Truck Accessories and Exterior Truck Accessories while you’re here.

Remote Start Installation in Time for a Harsh Maryland Winter

November 5th, 2014

Remote Start MarylandClimate experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Farmer’s Almanac are predicting another harsh and snowy winter here in Maryland. Trick Trucks, meanwhile is predicting an increase in Remote Start Installation in trucks, cars, and vans.

A remote starter allows a driver to start a car’s engine with a remote control, usually in the form of an electronic key fob, right from the comfort of their own home.

Remote Start Installation in Time for a Harsh Maryland Winter

Trick Trucks carries an extensive line of interior vehicle accessories, including remote starters. Every product we offer can be purchased and professionally installed at any one of our twelve locations, throughout Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, and Virginia. We provide factory authorized service, all work is guaranteed, and all factory warrantees apply.

No one wants Jack Frost nipping at their nose while they are driving to work. Yuck! So, head to Trick Trucks before winter arrives.

Benefits of Remote Starters

The No.1 Benefit is Comfort

When winter rolls around, no one likes to climb into a cold car in the morning. Brrrrrrr! What’s worse is that it seemingly takes your entire commute for the car to warm up. Fortunately, with a remote starter you can turn your car, truck, or van on from the comfort of your own home and allow if to warm up as you get ready to leave for work.

Remote Starters Also Increase Safety

How many mornings do you find yourself with the following dilemma. Your windshield is covered in ice, but you do not have the time to painstakingly scrape away the frost. So you hop in your car, turn on the defroster and hope for the best, all the while driving to work with limited visibility. Holy accident waiting to happen, Batman! By using a remote starter, your car, truck, or van can warm up and defrost your windshield before you ever set foot outside.

Nothing but clear sailing (driving) ahead.

Engine Care 101

Warming your car, truck, or van before driving it is actually beneficial for the engine. Because the vehicle idles for several minutes before being driven, the engine oil becomes more viscous and provides better lubrication once the driver is ready to go.

Improved Resale Value

Remote starters also add to the resale value of your vehicle, especially if you live in areas with extreme weather conditions. Yay!

And So Much More!

If you have any questions about Remote Start Installation, please contact Trick Trucks today by calling 1-866-60 TRICK or click here! We also invite you to explore our many Interior Truck Accessories and Exterior Truck Accessories while you’re here.

Trick Trucks in Delaware Handles All of Your Tonneau Cover Installation Needs

Tonneau Cover DelawareWinter is Coming! If you are a fan of the HBO hit-series Game of Thrones, you probably recognize the words of House Stark. Even if you have never seen the show or read a single page of George R. R. Martin’s series of novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, you can probably still figure out the meaning. Winteriscoming! Fall is in full swing, which means winter is not far off. Now is the perfect time to ensure your truck is ready for another snowy winter here on the East Coast.

According to climate experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration we are in store for another harsh winter, and the Farmer’s Almanac agrees, calling for colder than normal and wetter than normal conditions. So what does this mean for you? Lots and LOTS of driving in the snow. Are you ready? More importantly, is your truck ready?

A Tonneau Cover Can Help Protect Your Cargo

One way to prepare for winter is to ensure your cargo is protected from Mother Nature. A tonneau cover keeps your items under cover and out of harmful weather: rain, sleet, or snow.

Custom HVAC Van Interiors

October 15th, 2014

Custom HVAC Van InteriorsHVAC is a very competitive industry. It seems like a new HVAC company pops up every day. So it is important to find ways to set yourself apart from the competition. One way you have done this is to ensure your company vans are eye-catching yet professional. These rolling billboards serve as a way to reassure both clients and potential clients of your professionalism and commitment to excellence. Then you open up the back doors…

It’s hard to convince a client to clean their dirty ductwork when the inside of your van looks like a tornado hit it. Image is everything, as they say. The solution: Custom HVAC Van Interiors. Remember when your mother told you that “It’s what’s on the inside that counts?” Well, she was right! We as human beings will ALWAYS form first opinions based on appearance. Sorry! That’s just the way we are wired.

Benefits of Custom HVAC Van Interiors

Your HVAC technicians have A LOT of tools. Period. And because you often don’t know the scope of a job until you examine an HVAC system, you need to ensure your technicians have every tool they could possibly need. That’s a lot of tools.

Without the right organizational system in place, two things can (and probably will) happen. 1) Your customer will glimpse the inside of your van and think to themselves, “Wow! This guy can’t even keep his work truck in order. Can I trust him?” Without even knowing it, the messy appearance of your van interior could be costing you business. Yikes! 2) Your technicians will fumble through the piles and piles of materials, tools, and random debris to find the tools that they need to complete the job. This hinders efficiency, which can hinder your profitability.

Customizing your commercial van with shelving will help eliminate pointless clutter; help your technicians stay more organized, which will help improve efficiency; and help you make the right first impression with potential clients. That’s what we like to call a win-win!

Roof Rack Benefits

Maximize Storage Space

Even trucks do not always have enough storage space. A roof rack can help add invaluable storage to your personal or commercial vehicle, especially when it comes to hauling awkward cargo. A roof rack’s open design does not set spatial limitations on your freight. You can pile as much or as little onto them as you want. Best of all, roof racks can be modified and personalized to fit your particular needs, such as camping, biking, and so much more. Just make sure you strap everything down tightly.

Cost Effective

A roof rack is a cost effective way to add additional storage to your vehicle. Now you will be able to haul more and make fewer trips, saving you a ton of money on gas. Let’s face it; gas prices can be pretty debilitating, especially for business owners. A roof rack allows you to maximize the potential of your vehicle.

And So Much More!

Ladder Rack Installation in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and Beyond

October 2nd, 2014

Ladder Rack MarylandIf you run a home improvement company, you know just how cumbersome it can be to lug your ladder from job site to job site. If you have a commercial van, you’ll probably be hard-pressed to squeeze your ladder inside. If you have a work truck, you are a little better off. You can get away with just throwing the ladder in the bed, but let’s face it; that doesn’t give off the professional image you’re after. And image is everything, or so they say. The solution: invest in a Ladder Rack.

Ladder Rack Installation in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and Beyond

Trick Trucks has a full line of commercial truck and van accessories, including conduit carriers, ladder racks, roof racks, truck bed toolboxes, ladder racks, and so much more! These products can be purchased and professionally installed at any one of our convenient locations throughout Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Delaware.

Year after year, Trick Trucks and Cars remains current with all of the latest products available to customize your commercial truck or van.

Benefits of Ladder Rack Installation

There is no need to take up precious storage space. There is no need for rope, bungy cords, straps, or tie-downs. A ladder rack will help you easily and effortlessly mount your work ladder and other awkwardly long tools and accessories out of the way. This is beneficial for so many reasons, including:

  1. Look professional. You take your business very seriously, but if you (and your vehicle) don’t look the part, will your clients take your business seriously? Probably not. As we mentioned before, image is everything. A ladder rack will help you project professionalism wherever you go.
  2. Maximizing cargo load. If your ladder is taking up a third of your truck bed, or worse, stuffed into the back of your van, you are losing precious cargo space. A ladder rack will help free up space, while mounting your ladder, awkwardly long tools and accessories safely out of the way.
  3. And So Much More!

Whether you are a contractor, farmer, carpenter, plumber, or just an average Joe, a ladder rack will greatly enhance the capabilities of your truck.

Commercial Van Shelving in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Beyond

September 25th, 2014

Commercial Van Shelving in DelawareBeauty is only skin deep. That old adage holds just as true today as it did when it was first coined oh so many years ago. As they say, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. While you may be a little tired of all the clichés, they serve a point (a point we will soon make). A commercial van without shelving and storage is little more than a rolling billboard. And that’s not the intended purpose of your fleet of vans. While advertisement is important, your vans were bought for another purpose. They were bought to serve as rolling warehouses, carrying everything you or your employee may need to complete a job.

Trick Trucks can help!

Commercial Van Shelving in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Beyond

Trick Trucks has the parts and accessories you need to fully customize your commercial van, including custom shelving. No one-size-fits-all solution here. We will design customized storage system to fit your van and your needs. That’s what we like to call a win-win!

For over 30 years, Trick Trucks has been helping businesses, like yours, customize their commercial vehicles. Let us help you! All of our products can be purchased and professionally installed at any of our eleven locations, throughout Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The Benefits of Commercial Van Shelving

Storage and Organization

Well, duh! Commercial van shelving will give you more storage space. Shelving will also help with organization. No longer will you have to root through piles of tools and spare parts to try and find what you need. As long as you put a tool back where it belongs, it will be there when you need it next!

Efficiency

Time is money, or so they say. The more organized your vans are, the more efficient your employees can work. It’s amazing how much faster your service calls will go when your drivers don’t have to search for the right tool for 15 minutes.

Professionalism

Here is another cliché. Image is everything! You can give your customers the wrong impression when you roll up to their home, open the doors to your van, and unveil piles and piles of clutter. Conversely, you can look extremely professional when you roll up to their home, open the doors to your van, and unveil a tidy, organized interior.

And So Much More!
