Prod­ucts and ac­ces­sories

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - CONTENTS -

Whilst new cars to­day come with a lot more stan­dard fea­tures than 30 years ago, when even a ra­dio was an op­tion, there is still an amaz­ing range of prod­ucts and ac­ces­sories for ve­hi­cles. Some have a strong pri­vate buyer fo­cus (dress up items) whilst oth­ers are more func­tional and aimed pri­mar­ily at fleet users (van shelv­ing). Many tran­scend the type of use (tow bars, lights etc). Our fea­ture looks at a few se­lected ac­ces­sories that will be of use to fleets. Some of these im­prove safety such as the Hella Safety Day­lights that give the op­tion of retrofitting older mod­els with Day­time run­ning lights which are now stan­dard on most new cars. Many fleet ve­hi­cles, es­pe­cially utes and vans, get heavy use where the driv­ers are work­ing on site and may need to drive in dirty over­alls or with cloth­ing that is wet or dirty from be­ing on the job. Black Duck seat cov­ers can help keep the orig­i­nal seats pris­tine and can also be eas­ily re­moved and cleaned pro­tect­ing the ve­hi­cles ul­ti­mate re­sale value. Ali Arc of­fers a large range of alu­minium ve­hi­cle pro­tec­tion and load car­ry­ing equip­ment for utes and vans in­clud­ing bull­bars, nudge bars and lad­der or roof racks. VCM has a wide range of ac­ces­sories and their ed­i­to­rial con­tri­bu­tion gives a great break­down on the key con­sid­er­a­tions for se­lect­ing the best op­tion from each ac­ces­sory type in­clud­ing the great ad­vice that if you have a par­tic­u­lar use case, it might pay to check what ac­ces­sories are ac­tu­ally avail­able for a par­tic­u­lar model be­fore you de­cide what to buy rather than dis­cov­er­ing that the spe­cific ac­ces­sory you want is not avail­able for the model you chose.
