November 7, 2008

It’s that time of year once again where truckers all across America are scratching their heads wondering what they’re going to get for Christmas from their wives or girlfriends. A tie? New socks? shirts and pants? A lump of coal? God only knows.

This year, make sure your woman gives you a gift that you can actually use, and let her know that just because you’re a trucker, doesn’t mean that you’re going to jump up and down at the sight of a new cordless drill. With this in mind, we here at have compiled a top 10 list of trucker gifts for the upcoming holidays.

10. Sleeper Cab FansThese fans will operate at one of three preselected speeds when the thermostat calls for cooler air. Once the thermostat is satisfied, the fan shuts off automatically. Designed to ensure consistent temperatures. Perfect for use when you leave your pets behind or while sleeping.

9. CAT Caterpillar MerchandiseEverything you love about CAT, from hats to toys to collectibles. If want Caterpillar merchandise then we have what your looking for and then some. We offer many different variety of hats in stock and ready to ship. If it’s not a CAT, its a dog.

8. Maps and AtlasesThese have been the old stand-by for truckers for years and years. With a wide variety of maps and atlases to choose from , you should never get lost the next time you hop into your rig.

7. CB Radios – Don’t let your man or woman get stuck in a traffic jam without a good CB radio on hand to acquire the critical they need. We carry all the major brands including Cobra, Uniden, Ranger, Galaxy and Connex.

6. Bluetooth Headsets – Give the gift of gab this holiday season with one of these terrific wireless bluetooth headsets from Global Trucker. Choose from name brands such as Cobra, Blue Parrot, Plantronics and Motorola.

5. 12 Volt Heaters – Winter is almost here and any truck driver would love to have a good heater. These sure come in handy if your truck heater decides to play out when its about 15 degrees outside. They also help cut down on idling fuel costs because you won’t have to have the truck running for these to operate.

4. Locking Gas Caps – Need I say more? Well ok then. We all know its a mean world we leave in and its a shame, but you can help protect your precious fuel with one of these fuel theft deterrents.

3. Seat Cushions – Every truck driver needs a good, comfortable seat to sit on especially when they are sitting 8-10 hours a day. With a wide variety of different styles and models to choose from, we are sure you will find one thats right for you.

2. 12 Volt Cookers – Every trucker out there knows its hard to find a good home cooked meal out on the road. So why not surprise them with a 12 volt cooker to help take a piece of home with them when they leave. They can take Sundays leftovers with them on Monday morning and heat them up in the truck that evening.

1. Gift Cards – Still not sure what to get them, why not get them a Global Trucker gift card. With over 12,000 items (including sports gifts) to choose from, I’m sure they won’t have any trouble finding something they like.



12 Volt Fans Help You Stay Cool While Driving

April 23, 2008

Whether your a trucker, RVer or just a vacationer, chances are its going to be hot this Summer. A 12 volt fan will help keep you cool with the air conditioner on and also with it off. Perhaps your a/c doesn’t work like what happened to me on a Summer vacation I took 3 years ago. We were just getting ready to leave out and all of a sudden the air conditioner goes dead. I said lovely, just what I needed. I didn’t have my website back then so I had to go to Wal-Mart to purchase a 12 volt fan. It was a little warm and extra noisy that trip but it was well worth it! So if your planning to take a road trip anytime soon, why not stop by Global Trucker and check out our line of 12 volt fans, chances are you’ll be glad you did…….
