Tips For Personalizing Your Leased Tractor Trailer

Automotive Blog

As an over-the-road truck driver, the cab of your truck will likely become just as much home as your house is. That makes it essential that your truck's cab be as comfortable and personalized as you can make it. If you're leasing, you'll be somewhat limited in the changes that you can make. Luckily, that doesn't mean you're without options. Here are some great ways to personalize a leased tractor trailer without violating your lease agreement.

Removable Upholstery Customizations

Don't let your tractor trailer lease leave you feeling trapped with that interior color. If you have a favorite color or you just want to give the interior a new look, there are removable options that you can use without sacrificing your lease agreement. For example, slip-on seat covers allow you to give your seats the look that you want. As a bonus, the seat covers protect the original seats, keeping them in good condition for the end of your lease.

You can also invest in removable carpeting for your tractor trailer. These carpets will sit directly on top of the existing carpeting in the truck, covering it completely. Like the seat covers, you can choose from many different colors. And, since it covers the original carpeting, you'll preserve its condition throughout the lease.

Added Custom Features

When you lease a tractor trailer, you might not be able to find one with all of the amenities that you'd like. Instead, consider the features that you can add afterward. For example, small refrigerators, microwaves and electric cooking skillets are easy to integrate into the cab afterward. Since they're portable, you can remove them easily when the lease is up.

You should also think about what kinds of electronics you can add to the truck for your recreation time. Since you're going to have down time in order to comply with the transportation laws, it's a good idea to have a DVD player and small television or a streaming service with satellite internet. Finally, consider investing in a power inverter so that you'll be able to supply power to your appliances and electronics easily.

Although leasing a truck means that you can't completely redesign the truck as your own, it doesn't mean that you can't add your own personal touches. With the tips presented here, you can make the cab of your truck feel as much like home as possible by making the most of temporary modifications and removable equipment.
