Best Auto & Truck Accessories for College Kids

Back to school season is officially here, with some of our customers or their kids heading off to college. Before you say goodbye to your parents and hit the road, we recommend decking your car out with some innovative and handy auto & truck accessories. These accessories not only look cool, but they are functional, too. We have compiled a list of the best auto & truck accessories for college kids:


  1. Car Alarms/Remote Starts: Your vehicle is important to you, and anything that important to you is worth protecting. An alarm, specifically a code alarm, will minimize the risk of unauthorized access to your car. With the chilly temperatures of winter rapidly approaching, it is the perfect time to invest in a remote start. When you have an early morning class to attend in the middle winter, you will be that much more grateful for your ability to remote start your car. There is nothing quite like a warm and cozy car.

  2. Tonneau Covers: We all know just how small those college dorms can be, and sometimes, you just don’t have enough room to fit all your belongings. With a tonneau cover, you can protect your precious cargo, especially when you are driving off to college for the first time.

  3. Mobile Audio: Are you looking to amp up your audio? Auto & Truck Accessories has stereos, speakers, amplifiers, and subwoofers from Pioneer, Kenwood, Sony, Rockford Fosgate and many more items to choose from. We think any of your friends will appreciate the quality sound emanating from your mobile audio system.

  4. Bluetooth: Don’t use your phone and drive. We all know this rule, but the buzz of our phone accompanying a phone call can be tempting. With a Parrot Bluetooth Kit, you can control everything right from your dashboard.

  5. Back Up Cameras and Sensors: With those tightly-packed parking lots on college campuses, it can be a nightmare trying to find a spot, and it can get even worse when you have to back out of that small spot. Back up cameras and backup sensors will minimize your risk of hitting other vehicles, along with overall just making your life easier.


From speakers to a tonneau cover, the team at Auto & Truck Accessories can install any of the accessories discussed above, and with any of those gadgets, you will be off to a great start at college. Feel free to drop by Auto & Truck Accessories, or give us a call. We’re happy to help!
