Perfect Stocking Stuffers!

Is there a pickup truck owner on your Christmas list this year?

If there is, we’d suggest a present for both the owner and the truck – we love trucks, and we know how much people appreciate the opportunity to make them better by personalizing them with the best in protective equipment and accessories.

The problem is that you might now know which items in our very wide selection make the perfect holiday gift.

By choosing a gift certificate, you’re saying: “I care about you and your truck, but I know you want to make it your own.”

Discerning truck owners will be delighted that you chose Carlson.  We offer the exclusive “Full Metal Jacket” spray-in polyuria bedliner, the toughest bed protection in the industry.  We’ve also got a full line of the best names in accessories for trucks – floor mats, bed covers, fuel door caps, stainless door handles, step bars, and a ton of other items that will make your favourite pickup owner really happy to choose from.  When it comes to outfitting your pickup truck, there are a lot of personal preferences at play – some people love Euro style tail lights, and others prefer a chromed tail light cover. When you give a gift certificate, you leave the options open.

Another advantage that Carlson Truck Outfitters gift certificates have is the access they give you to our expert staff.  Unlike people who work in big box hardware stores, pickup trucks are all we do, and we feel very passionate about helping our customers make the most of their rides.

So when you’re looking for the right thing to put under the tree of a truck lover, visit us at 1392c Regent Avenue in Winnipeg.  Gift certificates are available in any denomination you choose.

Make sure your Emergency Kit is Ready for Winter

Frigid temperatures are almost upon us, and any day now the snow is going to start flying again.

Are you ready?

Having the right equipment with you if you’re stranded in winter can make a big difference.  Make sure that the emergency bag in your truck is up to the important task of keeping you alive and comfortable should you need to rely on it.

Check for These essentials:

Water – make sure you have sufficient fresh water to last overnight.  As plastic water bottles can actually leach chemicals into their contents over time, you’ll want to change them out periodically.

Food – Your body burns food energy in order to make heat.  Some high-energy bars that won’t spoil make an ideal emergency snack.

Blankets – a nice warm blanket can insulate you from bitter cold, and prevent you from having to run your car’s engine (which makes dangerous Carbon Monoxide) to keep warm in case of an emergency.

Flashlight – light is nice to have, and instrumental in signaling for help at night.  Make sure you have a good flashlight with fresh batteries in your kit.

Candles – the flame from a single candle can heat the interior of your truck, saving your body the energy of producing it’s own heat.  Have a couple, as well as a way to light them, in your emergency bag.

Cell Phone – while it’s not the be-all and end-all safety device (service can be disrupted during periods of bad weather, and coverage might not be available, a working phone just might allow you to call for help, and get you out of trouble right away.

At Carlson Truck Outfitters, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that prairie winters are serious business.  When the weather turns bad, the best thing you can do for you and your truck is stay off the roads!
