  • Sales reps spend approximately 7.5 days a year at the trunk of their vehicles, looking for & retrieving items for sales or service calls.

  • Over 40% of marketing literature is thrown away annually due to lost, worn, torn & damaged supplies.

  • Purchase an in-car cell phone holder. There are a variety of suction cup, cigarette lighter & air vent mount holders that keep your phone secure, stable & easy to get to.

  • Organize & store your account & literature files in portable containers. This makes transport easy & protects your files from damage. Secure the containers in the front passenger seat, floor, back seat or rear cargo area of your vehicle. To prevent shifting & sliding, attach Velcro® pads to the bottom of the unit.

  • Install a portable multiple cigarette lighter adapter. This allows you to plug several devices into one outlet strip & eliminates plugging & unplugging various devices from one cigarette lighter.

  • Stay organizationally motivated! Keeping your trunk or cargo area organized takes less time & energy to maintain than trying to find something buried in a messy trunk.

  • Consider using a hands-free cell phone kit when you talk from the car on a regular basis. Holding a cell phone with one arm for any amount of time creates a surprising amount of neck & shoulder tension.

  • Invest in a mobile desk that suits your ergonomic appeal. Portable car desks reduce a variety of extreme posture positions when taking notes or entering data in a laptop.

  • Consider using a voice organizer to record ideas, thoughts or new projects that come to mind while traveling. This is especially useful when driving & can be faster & more accurate in capturing thoughts.
