Spay On Bedliners Help Protect Truck Beds from Scratches, Dents, and Rust

Spray bed liner

The 84-year old grandfather was excited about his first visit to Louisiana. He had a surprise scheduled for the visit that made the trip even a little more exciting. Planning to travel with his daughter to visit his granddaughter who was a college sophomore at a small liberal arts school, the proud grandfather had scheduled an upgrade for the pickup he had given his oldest granddaughter. Although he told his granddaughter that she would need to plan to be without the truck for awhile on the Friday he was in town, she thought her grandfather was simply paying for an oil change and a detailed wash. What she did not know, however, was that her grandfather had actually scheduled an appointment to install a spray bedliner on that Friday afternoon.
He knew that both his daughter and granddaughter would be excited about the addition. The girls, as he liked to call them, would probably think the spray bedliner was purely for cosmetic reasons. He admitted, in fact, that spray on bedliners did make trucks look nice. He, however, was more concerned about protecting the bed of the truck he had given his granddaughter. In fact, as soon as he found out that she was the only gymnast on the women’s college team with a truck, he knew that meant she would be the one providing the vehicle for moving equipment to and from the practice gym to the competition site for their meets. A spray bedliner would keep the used truck he had gifted her looking its best.
It took a few phone calls to check on references, but he was confident that he had found a technician who was well qualified in bedliner spray gun applications. The grandfather new, in fact, that how the liner was applied was almost more important than the product itself. For that reason, he had scheduled the application for the time that he would be there.
What Accessories Do You Plan to Add to Your Current or Next Truck?
Spray on bedliner dealers often provide a variety of services, including vinyl wrap tape applications and truck bed cover installations. Knowing that most pickup truck owners have a strong preference for the kind of accessories that they have on their vehicles, most pickup trucks come off the assembly line with only standard choices of exterior color and interior leather or cloth options. Many truck owners like to have other things like spray bedliners, custom hitches, vinyl tape, and bed covers added after market.
A generic truck without all the extra, and sometimes expensive, details are easier to sell off the lot. Buyers can then take their time and make their own decisions about what they want to add on.
In the year 2012, 1.6 million pickup trucks were sold in America. In fact, for every eight new vehicles sold in the U.S. in the year 2013, one of them was a full-size pickup truck. Of those pickup trucks, nearly 90% of them were built by Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors. As a result of these models being so popular, it should come as no surprise that many custom accessories are available. Everything from pickup bed covers to bedliners to cusom hitches and bedliners are available for purchase. And while some of these add ons are merely for looks, many serve a purpose of protecting the truck.
Bedliners, for example, help keep the truck itself from being scratched, dented, or rusted. Available in a spray on product or as a product that fits over the bed, these liners are very popular. Sprayed in a couple of different thicknesses, these bedliners serve other purposes as well. These liners also add years of service by preventing chemical contamination from deteriorating standard OEM paint. The bedliners can also create a roughed up, anti-skid, or anti-slip surface that can keep hauled materials in one spot.
Whether you are a grandfather excited about giving a grandchild an upgrade to his or her pickup or you are a rancher looking to protect your investment, spray on bedliners serve a variety of purposes. Are you ready to schedule an appointment?
