Tips and advice

What should be in the company car?

Appropriate equipment for a company car is both a matter of prestige and proper representation of the company, as well as the possibility of deducting most of the costs of this type from the tax. Car accessories and devices will be useful both in everyday use of the vehicle and on longer business trips.

Automotive accessories that will be useful in any company

Comfortable equipment of company cars is something worth paying attention to. Whether vehicles are used by dealers, customer service drivers or managers, they should be comfortable to drive and should be equipped with at least basic accessories and devices. Here they are:

  • GPS navigation - most people cannot imagine moving in unknown areas without an efficient car navigation and it is hardly surprising. Time is money, and wandering around the roads and detours with a paper map in hand does not serve to reach your destination quickly, and hardly anyone has the comfort to treat similar experiences as an interesting experience. In order to shorten the time of business trips, it is worth to install GPS navigation in company cars. In some vehicles it is installed at the factory, in others it is necessary to take care of an external device. There are, admittedly, alternatives in the form of smartphone navigation and appropriate applications, but it is much more convenient to provide navigation directly in the car.
  • Navigation handle - if you decide to equip your company car with navigation, you can't do without the handle. Most often they are available in a navigation kit, although this is not a 100% rule. In most cases, such a purchase can be easily included in the company's costs.
  • Phone cradle - regardless of whether the phone is used for navigation or hands-free calls while driving, it is advisable to equip company cars with universal phone cradles (with adjustable grip size).
  • Car radio - it's hard to imagine moving around the city, standing in traffic jams and driving further without being able to listen to the radio or your favourite music. A car radio should be present in every company vehicle - it is a matter of driving comfort but also of improving concentration on the road. Many people notice that listening to the radio while driving stimulates and makes it harder to get over the fatigue behind the wheel.
  • Cables and chargers - in the era of modern mobile devices it is worth to take care of the possibility of charging their batteries also while driving a car. No special equipment is required for this purpose. Most often it is enough to use a suitable cable, converter or adapter. Most new cars already have a variety of sockets (including USB), while others can use a cigarette lighter to USB adapter or other type of socket to charge your tablet or camera.

Car accessories that are also worth considering for purchase

If your company car needs to move quickly from place to place, you should also consider buying a CB radio. CB radio is a piece of equipment that is very often used by many drivers, and which allows you to get an excellent idea of the road situation, avoid traffic jams and even ask for directions, which can prove to be extremely useful.

Another solution that may be useful in a company car is a reversing sensor and a camera. The reversing sensor makes parking much easier, and the camera allows you to record drives, which is useful both in the calculation of working time, as well as in resolving any disputes (for example, after a minor breakage, recording from a car camera can help determine the person responsible for the event).

Equipping company cars is an issue to which attention should be paid and which should be treated as an investment in the company's image and in the comfort of employees' work. Purchases of this type can be classified as business expenses, and this is an additional tax benefit.
