A safer and well maintained car is a more economical company car.
Just think about it: fewer unexpected repairs, greater fuel economy due to a well-serviced engine, and stronger residuals when it comes to selling or returning the car.
But that’s not all, it’s also a great way to make your staff feel more valued and even promote professionalism. Going out of your way to provide the equipment and accessories your staff need can say a lot about what sort of business you run.
So let’s dive straight into our round up of the must-have accessories for keeping your company car fleet in tip-top condition.
1.Look After Your Rims With AlloyGators
In recent years a lot of new company cars have come fitted with big alloy wheels and low profile tyres. This does mean a sportier look and better grip, but on the flip side can also mean a higher risk of damaging those big wheels on the kerb. AlloyGators are tough nylon rim protectors which sit on the rim’s edge to act as bumpers if you do hit anything. Fit them yourself in less than an hour or take advantage of its nationwide fitting network.
2. Tidy Up With The Halfords Cordless Rechargeable Car Vacuum Cleaner
At just £20, this handy little unit from Halfords is at the lower end of the car vacuum market, but that’s not to say it doesn't offer great versatility and performance. It’s a cordless vaccum, which means no need for an extension or long cord running from the house or office, and it comes with three attachments—crevice, carpet, and squeegee—so you can do wet and dry cleaning and get into those hard to reach places.
3. Keep It Clean With The Karcher Chassis Cleaner
We tend to take good care of the visible areas of our company vehicles, but neglect the hidden parts which can actually be worse affected—particularly in the winter months by corrosive road salt. The Karcher Chassis Cleaner makes it easy to clean the underside of your company car with its high pressure system and integrated shampoo. After a wash and rinse, you can then use it to apply a treatment which will protect the underside of your company car from corrosion for six months.
4. Stay On The Road With The RAC HP082 Jump Starter
At just over £30, this top reviewed compact jump starter kit is perfect to keep in the boot of every company car in the case of the unexpected. Thanks to its lightweight design it can be easily lugged around, and when it comes to re-charging, you have the convenient option of using your car battery or its 230v mains adapter.
5. Keep Organised With Sticky Dashboard Pads
Last but not least we have potentially the best value product of the bunch. For just a couple of pounds, these handy little sticky pads can hold anything from keys, money, phones and satellite navigation systems, directly to the dashboard. They are washable, removable, and reusable, and can also be used on the centre console or vertical surfaces like windows. Loosing coins or your phone down the side of the seat is a thing of the past.
