Must-Have Items for Truckers

Being prepared is all part of being a trucker. In today’s world, there are all sorts of accessories that are worth having in commercial truck safety kits. To start, be sure you have mobile accessories, to include a dash mount, a phone charger, and a universal mobile backup battery for your phone. A dash mount will allow you to stay focused on the road, while a charger and backup battery will ensure you’re always connected.


Aside from staying connected, comfort is also important. The more comfortable you are, the less distracted you’ll be. Supportive truck seats are a must to minimize the risk of neck and back pain. A comfortable seat cushion may also help to make long routes more bearable.


Other items that you’ll want to have accessible when you’re on the road include:


  • Bungee cords
  • Backup camera
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlight
  • Bad weather gear
  • Extra personal items (shampoo, blanket, etc.)

By being prepared for each trip, you can ensure that you’re ready for any emergency or incident that you may face along a route.
