Appraisers, Inspectors, Salesmen alike spend time in their vehicle. The interior of your car reflects who you represent. Its unlikely that a borrower or client will see the interior of your vehicle but don’t leave it to chance. Keep a trash can in your vehicle so that the clutter is minimized. A clean car leads to a focused mind. Here is
While several companies try to create the best trash can for your car, the following trash cans are recommended due to their ease of use and utility. They also provide waterproof / no-leak interiors.
Best Trash Can For Your Car
- Passenger Seat Mounted Trash Can
- Floor Trash Can Basket with Mat
- Center Mounted Trash Can
- Collapsible Trash Can
The key here is make sure the trash can or basket is waterproof. Whether its hanging from the passenger seat or situated on the floor, that will come to personal preference. Each vehicle’s interior layout varies. Decide which one has the most use within your car or SUV and install it within a minute’s time.
Especially operating in a professional capacity, the automobile is a “work sanctuary”. Treat it as such by minimizing all the clutter in open areas. That doesn’t mean stuffing every object in your car into the trunk space, but reduce what you are carrying on a daily basis. It is virtually impossible to not produce any trash driving the amount of time appraisers and inspectors do. Having that trash can to clear the car of debris is huge for mental health.
Psychology Today provides science based studies as to this rationale. Clearing the your work area (including your work desk) has the ability to clear the mind of stress. Give yourself a mental stress reducing treat and begin the new year by considering this question, “Have I used this object within the year?” If the answer is no, then it is time to trash, sell or store that item off the desk or out of your work mobile. Get clear headed so you can be a more effective real estate appraiser.
