Subsequently truck stops have gone through numerous improvements; more precisely truck stop owners took care about truck drivers, and incorporated amenities that are essential for their well-being.

However, the period of truck stop adaptation has been a result of the changing trucking industry needs. These days’ truck stops have become modern facilities that are providing many amenities to truck drivers, such as bigger parking lots, showers, laundry services, and many more, all for the reason truck drivers to feel more like home.

Furthermore in this article you will have the chance to learn more about the benefits that truck drivers are enjoying thanks to the numerous amenities that can be found on todays’ truck stops!

Let’s take a look!

1. Restaurants

Food is something that is providing fuel for humans’ body.  Thereupon, in order for truck drivers to stay sharp on the road they should fuel their body with regular and healthy meals. At first you might think how can truck drivers manage to have regular meals and on top of that healthy ones when they don’t have a lot of time-out on their disponibility?

So, truck stop owners having in mind that truck drivers don’t have a lot of time for themselves, that is to say a lot of time for maintaining healthy eating habits, they have decided many years ago to open restaurants on each truck stop, so that they can meet truckers’ needs.


Truck stop restaurants have noticed that there is a consistent stream of revenue only when they are serving good quality food at reasonable prices.

However, the big idea that truck stop restaurant owners have is to attract more and more truck drivers thanks to their good food, and later-on those drivers to spread the word among their colleagues so that they can achieve endorsements.

Either way in the end it is a win-win situation, both for restaurant owners and for truck drivers that are enjoying the benefits of this amenity.

2. Showers

One of the best ways that truck drivers can preserve their good health while on the road for a long time is by taking regular showers.

Not only that, but by taking shower the truck driver is relaxing his muscles and is getting his focus back. And in the light of getting his focus back he can return in the truck cabin and continue his trip being able to drive in accordance to the rules and regulations given by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

In other words truck drivers have stated that showers are one of the most important amenities for them. Correspondingly having a shower after a long drive makes positive impact on truck drivers.


By the same token this amenity is giving the following benefits to truck drivers:

  • Improvement of their immunity and circulation;
  • Weight loss stimulation;
  • Easing the stress;
  • Relief of stiff neck and shoulders;
  • Reducing headaches; 

3. Laundry Service

In general having clean clothes after spending weeks, and sometimes even months on the road is without a doubt number one priority that every truck driver has. In the past few years, there were many updates done in the direction of performing the process of doing laundry in a quicker and smarter way.

Laundry service as one of the 10 essential truck stop amenities for truck drivers is providing the following resources:

  • New laundry machines;
  • Folding tables;
  • Handling racks;

Moreover, if we take a look at the laundry service pricing we can notice that the fees are in fact really low; for example, the washing and drying process won’t cost you more than $5. Most of the laundry service rooms are big and are equipped with TV or entertainment gadgets, that way truck drivers can have a more quality time while waiting.

The main reason why laundry rooms are constructed to be bigger and more spacious is because that way the truck driver could speed up the time that is required to sort out their clothes and get back on the road quickly.

In addition, I would like to share the following truck stop tip for doing laundry:

  • Always bring your own laundry detergent because there is a chance that on the truck stop where you are going to stop you won’t find the one that you are using. Whereas if you find the detergent that you are using, believe me, it would be way more expensive than if you buy it somewhere else.

4. ATM and Check Cashing

Every truck stop around USA has ATM machines, allowing cash access to the truck drivers 24 hours a day. This amenity is one of the most essential for truck drivers since they are spending weeks, and sometimes even months on the road.


Check cashing represents an important service that truck drivers are using on a daily basis at the truck stops. This service is allowing them to change the check for cash while paying a small fee.

The process of check cashing goes like this- the check cashing first must go through identification of its client, and afterwards the client needs to endorse the check, only after the check has been endorsed then the client would be able to get the deposit from his bank account.

All in all, check cashing and ATM are essentials, truck drivers must always have an option to access their cash when it is crucial.

5. Wireless Internet        

Having the access to high-speed internet is very important to every truck driver, therefore wireless internet is considered to be one of the 10 best amenities. Truck drivers are leading a unique lifestyle that requires from them to spend a lot of time on the highways transporting loads. The long process of transportation means that truck drivers will stay alone in the truck cabin for a long period of time, which is not easy at all.
