The holidays are right around the corner and as a fleet owner, you may still be struggling with what to get your employees to show your appreciation for all of their hard work. Our fleet fuel card company has come up with some ideas that may help:
Digital Tire Pressure Gauge
In our opinion, anyone who drives a vehicle needs one of these. Instead of dealing with the traditional pop-out piece of plastic with numbers etched into it, your drivers can know exactly how much air is in their tires with a digital readout. This makes filling them a lot easier and faster.
Travel Tool Kit
It’s important to be prepared, as any fleet driver will know, and a travel tool kit is the perfect way to be ready for anything. A kit that has screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, a knife, gloves, and drive sockets will cover most necessary repairs on the road.
As you probably know, fleet drivers have to drive hours and/or days on end, which can get pretty tiring. A neck pillow is a great item to have – simply wrap it around your neck and you can take a quick, comfortable nap to re-energize.
Portable Jump Starter
If your fleet consists of cars, pick-up trucks, or SUVs, invest in 900 Peak Amp jump-starters for your drivers. These jump-starters are ideal for situations when your drivers may not have another vehicle nearby to jump-start theirs (on overnight trips or trips to isolated destinations). They won’t ever have to worry about a dead battery.
This could actually count as a gift for both you and your fleet drivers. With a Fuel Express fuel card for each driver, they can enjoy the freedom to fill up their gas tank at over 320,000 gas and maintenance locations nationwide while you enjoy a much easier way to budget and track your fuel expenses.
When you travel (especially over long distances), you probably bring valuable items with you and have nowhere to safely store them. With a portable safe, drivers can store their wallet, mp3 player, fleet fuel card, phone, and more in a locked, protected container and won’t have to worry about anyone stealing their valuables.
Pressure-Relieving Seat Cushion
For your drivers that travel often or for long periods of time, a seat cushion can help make their job a lot more comfortable. Many are built to relieve pressure, discomfort, and lower back pain that occurs after elongated sitting sessions.
Since drivers spend nearly all of their time in a car or truck, satellite radio is a great way to help them get through the day. They’ll be able to listen to virtually any type of music or talk show that they enjoy and will be in good spirits.
