Car Accessorising: Most Don’t Bother To, But Should

Car accessories can sometimes be viewed as pointless and over-the-top. If something was necessary or useful, it would be built into the car already, no? That’s true on some accounts – some car accessories are not necessary, take up space and even spoil the car’s appearance. But there are some car accessories that are highly useful and worth the investment – and this is what we’ll be talking about in this article.

So without any further introduction, here are 3 useful car accessories that you should have.

1) Baby on Board’ Sticker

Before I go on, I’m aware the stigma surrounding having this sticker on the back of your car. Yes, people think it can look a bit obnoxious, but that’s because they don’t know the real reason it’s stuck back there – it is to notify any emergency responders that there might be a child in need of assistance, in times of trouble. So if you’ll be driving around with small children in the car, it’s better to invest in this sticker. After all, better safe than sorry.

2) Seat cover & Floor Mat

These are in your face every time you enter your car, but it’s easy to overlook. You shouldn’t though! Giving your car’s interior a makeover by changing your seat covers and floor mats every once in a while will actually transform its appearance, as well as keep it squeaky clean. It’ll be as if you’ve invested in a brand new car.

And it may seem daunting, but it really isn’t that hard to maintain the seat covers and floor mats condition. The people at Car Detailing Perth, who specialize in interior and exterior cleaning, will tell you how easy it is to keep them in great shape, even after ages of use.

3)  Phone Mount

Drivers these days require quick access to their phones, which makes a phone mount a worthy investment. Instead of having to look down to check Google Maps or to switch a song you don’t like and endanger yourself and others around you in the process, you could simply invest in a phone mount. These phone mounts help you attach your phone to your dashboard, giving you quick and easy access.

Phone mounts come mainly in two different designs. One is the mount on air conditioning vent mount, which hooks onto the vent and then strap your phone to. Of course, almost every single car has an air conditioning vent, so this design is useful in that regard. However, there are also complaints that this type of design actually blocks off the air coming from the vent. The other type of design is  a silicone grip pad. Just place it on your dashboard and it can grip your phone, keys, wallet or anything else that might need holding.

Make The Most Out of Your Car

Yes, some accessories can look obnoxious and are generally over-the-top, don’t be afraid to invest in these accessories, as they will generally make your car rides safer, as well as making your car cleaner and more well-put together.
