WHEN YOU BUY A TRUCK, MAKE SURE YOU MAINTAIN THE INTEGRITY OF THE BED

October 9th, 2018 by

The Chevy Silverado is one of the biggest, toughest and most reliable trucks on the road, which is why we sell so many of them here at Sherman Chevrolet. Like any vehicle, the Silverado can only perform at its best with some tender loving care. Just as in any relationship, paying attention to the little details makes everything work – and last.

One such detail for pick-up trucks is investing in a bed liner.

Truck bed liners protect your vehicle from the elements and prevent the truck bed from rusting. Truck bed rust is one of the most common reasons why people wind up replacing a truck they otherwise love. If your truck’s bed rusts out, whatever cargo you’re hauling simply won’t be secure. A good truck bed liner will add years to the life and utility of your truck.

Bed liners also keep cargo from sliding around and protect the truck bed from scrapes, scratches, dings and dents. That kind of damage not only makes the truck look bad, but also greatly reduces its re-sell and trade-in value. Even worse, that kind of wear and tear can puncture the truck bed, which means you could lose sand, dirt, gravel or other materials you have loaded in the bed, and opens up the underside to rain and other elements, which accentuates the risk of rust.

Investing in a good truck bed liner – and even a truck bed cover – now can add years to the life and reliability of your truck and reduce the need for repairs, saving you money down the road. Truck beds and covers will help you cut down maintenance and repairs, can keep your truck out of the shop, and will pay off when it comes time to sell it or trade it in.

At Sherman Chevrolet Cadillac, we can offer you a lot of tips on maintaining your truck bed, and one of our best tips is to invest in both a bed liner and bed cover – a tonneau cover, in particular. These go over your truck bed to shield and protect whatever you’re carrying. There are also tonneau covers for the truck cap, or camper shell, which rises above the walls of the truck bed. Using a bed liner and a cover together is one of the best ways you can fight truck bed rust.

We have both bed covers and bed liners in stock at Sherman Chevrolet Cadillac, and if we don’t have the one you want, we will get it for you – and fast.
