The 5 Best Car Accessories For Your Vehicle

These days, driving is so much more than simply getting behind the wheel and driving from A to B. In the 21st century, we’re fortunate enough to have access to a whole host of driving accessories that help make the experience easier and smoother. 

But, with so many options out there it can be difficult to know which car accessories are most suitable for you.

With this in mind, our team here at Ken’s Autos has put together five of the best car accessories for your vehicle.

The Top Five Car Accessories

1. Towbars 

Many drivers use their cars to tow all kinds of things behind their vehicles. If this is something you use your vehicle for, towbars are a necessary accessory. Trailers, caravans, bicycles and much more can all be attached to towbars, making the process of towing whatever you need far easier. 

Towbars can be permanently fixed to your vehicle if you’re someone that tows regularly, or you can go for detachable options that can be used at your leisure. 

At Ken’s Autos, we can supply customers with a wide range of towbars, including:

2. Number Plates

While it’s a legal requirement to have a number plate on your vehicle, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a customised one that better reflects your personality than the standard versions. 

Bespoke number plates have become increasingly popular in the UK, but there are a few rules that must be adhered to if you’re considering one for your vehicle. For example, they must be displayed at both the front and rear of your vehicle, letters must be black on a white background at the front, and black on a yellow background at the back and there are a number of rules regarding letter dimensions. 

If you want a number plate that can instil a sense of character and personalisation to your vehicle and also ensure it meets British standards, Ken’s Autos can assist.     

3. Roof Bars 

It’s common to see vehicles driving with roof racks (or roof bars) on top, providing excellent storage options. Ideal for people going on a trip, camping or simply those who have a lot of belongings, roof bars are a great accessory that provides you with more flexibility.  

Incredibly easy to use and attach to your vehicle, our team supplies clients with a wide range of roof bars that can be tailored specifically to your unique vehicle. We supply and install car roof bars and van roof bars.  

4. Bike Racks 

If you’re a keen cyclist, bike racks are a fantastic accessory option. They can be attached to the back of your vehicle, and provide you with a great way to safely transport your bikes to your destination. 

The different types of bike racks available include:

  • Roof-mounted bike racks – Attaching your bike to bars on the roof, this option gives you a full view out of the rear window.
  • Boot bike racks – One of the most common types of bike racks, they’re attached to the back of your vehicle.
  • Towbar bike racks – If you have a number of bikes to transport, then towbar bike racks are the way to go. They’re extremely safe, and provide capacity for up to five bikes at a time. 

5. Bluetooth hands-free kits

Remove any temptation or distractions from your mobile phone by investing in Bluetooth hands-free kits. Using your phone while driving is illegal and extremely dangerous, but Bluetooth hands-free kits allow you to answer important business or personal calls while behind the wheel.

Ken’s Autos have access to a range of models that can automatically put your calls through the vehicle’s speakers, mute your car’s radio when on a call, are fully wireless and are compatible with many devices.

Our team of trained technicians can even install your accessory and ensure it’s fully working for you.  

For more than four decades, Ken’s Autos has supported local communities across Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield and the surrounding areas with all of their automotive needs.

In addition to acting as a one-stop shop for spare parts and all kinds of vehicle maintenance, we can also supply our customers with leading car accessories that enhance their driving experience. To find out more about how we can help you, get in touch with our team today.
