For many semi-truck drivers, seeing a big rig all decked out with chrome and a nice paint job is a thrilling sight. By paying attention to the details on a truck, a driver can show off their truck as well as their passion for the work. A well painted and sharp-looking truck is a moving billboard for your trucking business and the business you represent, so yes, first impressions count!
First Impressions Last
When a semi is taken care of and looks as good on the outside as it runs under the hood, customers will notice. A shiny truck will show that you are reliable, and care enough to keep it visually appealing, which means you care about your work, your business, and your customers.
Truckers take a lot of pride in their semi-trucks, and many people in the industry have taken to customizing them, as well as keeping their paint jobs looking great. Some of the customizations include chopping the roof, installing suicide doors, and fancy paint jobs.
If you’ve ever thought about customizing your rig, you might like to get some inspiration, so we’ve got some, for your viewing pleasure.
