Product Reviews on Items
for your product reviews of items marketed to or
used by truckers, those for your own personal use and those for use in
If you're like us, you've walked around in the chain truckstops and seen lots of items for sale in the travel stores. You've been around long enough to know that some of those items just look cheap -- even though they may be sold at what seems like a premium price! Some items may indeed be sturdy, durable, long-lasting and worth the cost while others aren't worth a plugged nickel.
Here's our list of product reviews that we have personally written (linked) and plan to review (not yet linked):
For truckers looking to publish their own e-books, Vicki reviewed an Amazon Marketing Book by Shelley Hitz.
Just because we plan to review the items listed above does not mean that you cannot provide a review of your own. If you have had a bad experience with an item that we had a good experience with -- or you have had a good experience with an item that we had a bad experience with -- that's OK!
If you look at the customer reviews on sites like Amazon.com, you'll see that people have written about their wide range of experiences: good, bad and everywhere in between. There's an old adage about getting the testimony of two or three witnesses. So, please feel free to write about what you know.
We are seeking product reviews from professional drivers on all sorts of items. (By the way, we believe that if a trucking product manufacturer makes a claim, we believe that truckers deserve substantiation of it.)
While we will be expanding this list (and do not endorse any product listed below), we would especially like to have product reviews on the following:
We make a distinction between products like this that don't come equipped on a truck and truck parts. Just because you don't see an item listed doesn't mean that you can't write a review about it. If you are interested in providing a product review, please see the information under our money saving tip below.

|Money saving tip:
If you have ever pulled up product reviews or customer ratings on a
website to see what the editors, experts or users have written, you
know that people sometimes take great pains to give the pros and cons
of using various items to encourage or warn future buyers, as the case
The magazine Consumer Reports contains "reviews and comparisons of consumer products and services based on reporting and results from its in-house testing laboratory."*
In this case, you are the consumer; you do your own product testing. Just because an item may be sold in a truckstop -- supposedly for use in trucks -- does not mean that it will work well in trucks. If you find something particularly appealing or disturbing, your review can mean the difference between a sale and a pass at the store by a fellow driver. Think of it as either a personal recommendation (like a money saving tip) or a personal warning like you would give face-to-face.
Did you know that you as a professional truck driver can write a review -- like the one on or linked from this page -- to help other truckers in the worldwide trucking community? You can even earn money in so doing.
Do you have a great review of a product that is marketed to and sold to truckers? Share it!
