Floor Mat Buying Guide for Car Dealerships, Auto Detailing Shops, & Auto Repair Shops

When it comes to choosing the best disposable floor mats for your business the large amount of choices can get quite confusing.  Should you choose paper or plastic?  Is the floor mat customizable with your logo and branding? What size do you want?  Do you need a heavy-duty or thicker strength for dirty or wet conditions?  How well does the floor mat stay in place?  And how much do all of these options cost? 

These are all valid questions and part of the reason shopping for disposable car floor mats can be very confusing.  We created this buying guide for floor mats so you can easily compare all of different types of floor mats for your car dealership, auto detailing company, auto repair shop, body shop, or collision center.

Disposable Plastic Floor Mats

Plastic floor mats come in a roll and are not customizable but provide a great way to protect the vehicles in your dealership, detail shop, or repair shop.  All in all, disposable plastic floor mats are great for keeping vehicle carpets dry and come with a unique differential slip.  They are also preferred because the smooth finish does not stick to your feet, while keeping the floor mats in place at the same time.

Full Adhesive Plastic Floor Mats
