Creating A Powerful Business

If you are like most people, you might have an idea or two about a new business, but wonder what you can actually do to make the wheels start turning. I began focusing more carefully on business a few years ago, and it was really interesting to see the difference that we were able to make. Within a few short months, we were able to completely overhaul our company, and it really helped to make it more powerful in the long run. I wanted to start this blog to help other people to create incredible businesses that can help the world.

7 Accessories That You Need When You Use Your Truck For Work

Trucks are handy. You may have bought yours because it handles well in the snow, has the capacity to transport your dirt bike, or just plain looks cool. Trucks are great for work, too. If you plan to use your truck for work, you will need some added accessories to make the job easier. Plus, let's face it. What truck owner doesn't love getting new gear?

1. Hitch Extender: A hitch extender connects to your hitch, effectively extending it several feet. This allows you to support a load of lumber or pipes beyond the normal length that your tailgate would support. It can also be helpful when transporting a canoe or oversize kayak. 

2. Load Safety Flag: When transporting longer loads, the law requires that a red safety flag be used on any load that extends four feet or more past the body of a vehicle. Instead of using that old napkin, invest in a weatherproof extended safety load flag You want to have a professional (and legal) flag with you at all times.

3. Wide Load Sign: Like an extended load safety sign, you also need a wide loan sign any time you are transporting a load that extends past the side of your new pick up truck. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires these signs, but the rules on what is wide enough to require signage varies by state. Check with your state's Department of Transportation for specifics in your state. 

4. Roof Rack: If the bed of your truck is full and you still have more to haul, look into investing in a roof rack. You can put another load of lumber up there or transport long feet of PVC pipes for a project. Just be sure to tie it down tight with bungee cords. 

5. Cargo Net: Another great accessory item for your new truck is a cargo net. When work has you moving around smaller boxes, a good cargo net can keep them from flying out of the bed of your truck when you are on the freeway. 

6. Cargo Carrier: One of the newer accessories on the market is the cargo carrier. It connects to your tuck's hitch and adds several square feet of decking for lawnmowers, air compressors, or even bicycles. 

7. Bed Liner: A basic accessory that can't be left off this lift is the tried-and-true bedliner. Every truck needs one when it is used for work. Plus, they look good. You can get a snap-in version or a spray-on bedliner. 

Whether you purchased a light duty truck or a big dualie, you need to trick it out before can you use it for work.
