Helpful Tips:

Choosing the perfect gift can be difficult, especially for a Trucker or Truck fan. Luckily, Raney’s is here to help alleviate some of the pressure by providing you with an overview of potential gift ideas that Truckers are sure to use. Before we begin, here are some useful tips to keep in mind when choosing a gift:

1. Always know what truck they drive. Many trucking items are make and model specific, so make sure you check the product’s compatibility with the specific truck type.

2. Do they own the truck they drive or drive for a company? If they drive for a company, it is probably best to get something they can use personally, like apparel, headsets, or a GPS unit—think Interior-related items. If they own the truck, they’ll probably want something more permanent.

3. Do they work locally or nationwide? Knowing this can really help narrow down some great gifts! For the constant long hauler, a fridge can be a really valuable gift, as with a GPS. If they drive in familiar territory often, a beefy GPS won’t be as necessary.

4. Does he/she have a Raney’s Wishlist? If you’re really unsure about what to buy the Trucker in your family, ask them if they have a Raney’s wishlist! They have already done all the guesswork for you.

Bluetooth Headsets:

Bluetooth Headsets are a must for every trucker, since using your phone while driving is prohibited by the Department of Transportation. The best option is to have a Bluetooth headset that can answer and end calls without having to touch your phone, saving you time and hassle.

Scale Trucks:

Sometimes your garage or yard just isn't big enough to collect every awesome type of truck there is. With scale model trucks, you get the details and designs of your favorite big rigs in a collectible and fun form. Kids love them and any driver or truck fan can appreciate the hundreds of different models and sizes. When buying a scale model, it's important to know the scales used and how the scale system works. Basically, it is a ratio of the actual size of the vehicle to the size of the model of truck. For every foot long a truck is, it would be 1/32 of that on a 1/32 scale model. So, a 32 foot long truck would be a one foot long 1/32 scale model truck. Examples for a 32 ft semi-truck in different size scales:

1:16 or 1/16 = 2 ft long model truck
1:32 or 1/32 = 1 ft long model truck
1:64 or 1/64 = .5 ft long model truck

For almost every major brand of semi-truck there is a corresponding model, so when you are shopping for a loved one, try to find out what they drive or what they want to drive when they grow up. Scale model trucks make great stocking stuffers, especially the 1/64 and 1/87 scaled trucks as these are the smallest, yet still extremely detailed models. For big time collectors, make sure you are purchasing a Die cast Metal truck. They are a bit weightier and really stand out when put on display. Die-cast trucks make great gifts for someone in the industry to go on a desk or in an office. Careful though, they tend to be a little heavy for kids.
