How Do You Know if You Have a Bad Transmission?

A transmission plays an important role in the operation of your car. And if the transmission goes, it can be an expensive problem to fix. Luckily, many cars give off warning signs that it needs repair before it completely dies. Unfortunately, many people have no idea what these warning signs are. If you don't know what the warning signs are, don't feel alone. I was once in the same position and ultimately, it caused me to have to replace the transmission in my car because I missed these signs. I created this website to help others identify when it needs to be repaired. If you notice any signs of a problematic transmission, head to a repair shop quickly to save yourself a lot of money!

Want To Expand Your Truck Equipment Business?: Additional Atypical Accessories You Could Sell

Diane Bishop

Standard truck equipment and accessories usually includes things like tarps, truck bed covers and truck bed storage boxes. While you probably already sell these items, you may be looking for ways to expand your business and sell more truck equipment and accessories that your competitors do not. The following is just a sampling of the additional, atypical accessories you could sell and to whom you would sell them.

Fire Truck Hoses, Gauges and Equipment

Quite possibly one of the types of work trucks that carries the most equipment on it is a fire truck. Firefighters need axes, water hoses, pressure gauges, picks, and several other pieces of equipment that they can attach to the sides of their trucks and store inside the trucks. Various types of fire extinguishers (e.g., water, electrical, chemical, grease and wood or other combustibles) are also frequently stored on fire trucks to help firefighters handle smaller fires. (Since you could also market the fire extinguishers to other businesses with trucks, this may definitely be a product you would want to carry regularly.) Becoming familiar with what is needed can help you stock inventory for when your local firehouses are in need of additional accessories on their trucks.

Tow Truck Accessories

Tow trucks usually come equipped with most of what the drivers need to accomplish their work. However, a towing winch can fail completely, or the tow truck driver may need an extra winch for heavy duty jobs. He or she may also want to invest in a plow accessory that can be mounted to the front of the tow truck to help dig out vehicles that have become buried or stuck in snow-filled ditches. Tire chains to fit any size tire may be something a towing company owner would want, not only for his or her own trucks but also to assist stranded vehicles gain traction and get out of a ditch or some deep mud.

Construction Crane Accessories

Construction cranes are the go-to vehicle when a contractor wants to lift something heavy and lift it really high, or smash and demolish something. Various crane attachments can cover many related jobs on a construction or demolition site, including a magnetized attachment for pulling metal out of rubble and placing it in a dump truck or metal recycling dumpster. There are almost a half-dozen different attachments for construction cranes, all of which you could either sell or rent to construction contractors.
