Are you constantly fighting mess and moisture on your vehicle floors? Custom floor mats and trunk liners are a great solution. They keep your vehicle floors clean and free from stains.
These floor coverings range in price from as low as $17 and can reach over $260 depending on the type of mat or liner and how customized it is. Regular floor mats and liners can be purchased from multiple retailers such as Wal-Mart, Amazon, eBay, and auto parts stores like Auto Zone. Custom floor mats and trunk liners can be purchased through retailers like XpressMats, Carid, WeatherTech, and Husky Liners, as well as through your vehicle’s manufacturer.
The best custom floor mats and trunk liners are obviously the ones that protect the best. Generally, these are washable and have raised edges. They are made of rubber, vinyl or plastic which keep liquid from soaking through. They are also easily removable. The material can simply be sprayed off with a hose for easy cleaning. The raised edges keep any liquid such as rain, melted snow, mud or spilled drinks inside the mat- not spilling over the edges onto the floor. Some of these mats are custom-made for each specific vehicle make and model. These vehicle specific mats ensure a perfect fit for that vehicle.
