If you’re a life long pick-up truck driver, you’ve probably spent many years attempting to get the truck of your bed perfectly organized before giving up and just tossing everything in haphazardly. Organizing your truck bed doesn’t have to be a difficult task. In fact, if you pick up the right products and stick to a plan, you’ll find you having a place for everything will make your life that much easier. Here are a few tips to get your truck bed organized:
Start with a lockbox
Of course, driving a truck can mean that anything in your bed is susceptible to thieving passersby. That’s why it’s essential that you invest in a good lockbox to store your valuables that don’t fit in your cab. You can get one that is customized to the make and model of your truck as well as what you plan to keep in it.
Consider a truck bed organizer
It’s inevitable that you’ll have a variety of odds and ends that find themselves floating around your truck bed making lots of noise and ending up out of reach. If you get yourself a good truck bed organizer, you’ll be able to sort everything into its own space, keeping them secure and easy to get to at a moment’s notice.
Cargo bars or nets
If you’re looking for a temporary or easily removable means to store your belongings in your truck, check out a cargo bar. They can easily be installed in any part of your truck bed and removed if you find you need the space. A cargo net is another easy way to keep things in place. If you’re tired of opening your tailgate only to have a half-dozen items roll out onto your driveway, a cargo net will help keep everything inside the truck.
For those of you who keep lots of expensive equipment in your truck that you need regular access to, a gear drawer is a great option. When you’re driving or the tools aren’t needed, they are safely locked in a heavy-duty container that is completely encased, protecting them from the elements. When it’s time to grab what you need, just unlock the drawers and slide them out to get what you need. To further organize your belongings, it can be separated into two individual drawers.
