Fleet Tracking

These days a lot of goods are being transported on our roads every day. I am not only talking about the goods that are delivered directly to customers such as parcels, but also many other goods that get to stores first before they are bought by people. It is therefore of utmost importance to the fleet managers to ensure the smooth tracking of their company vehicles at all times.

Managing a large fleet of vehicles can be a daunting and overwhelming task, especially if you deal with a really large number. Fortunately, things get a lot easier thanks to effective fleet vehicle tracking systems that are available on the market these days. Fleet owners no longer have to worry about “chasing” their drivers to know exactly where they are at any time they are on the job. These days, there are some really sophisticated GPS systems that can do a lot for a person or a business in terms of vehicle tracking, even if it means tracking a really large fleet of vehicles.

There are several reasons having an effective GPS system is such a good idea. Below I am going to list only some of them as I am sure that the list goes on and on.

One of the most important things your customers want to know is the exact or almost exact time at which their goods will reach their destination. By improving the accuracy with which you can estimate when the goods arrive you can make your customers very happy and very satisfied.

Another thing that matters a lot when it comes to running a fleet of cars is efficiency. Usually, the better the fleet tracking system you have, the better you are going to perform as a business. This can give you an edge over your competitors, which might be exactly what you want and need in order to succeed.

Security is another important factor while determining the effectiveness of a GPS system. A good GPS system is a system that will always let you know if any problems arise when you are on the road or if any vehicle gets stolen or is in an accident.

The surge of car buying services

A guest post by The Used Car Guy

Everybody knows about the surge of car buying services. Some of the
well known ones include We Buy Any Car and The Car Buying Service.

These types of services will buy my car within 24 hours guaranteed but the price I get will be dramatically below its
true market value. This is the price you pay for a quick sale.

Having worked in the motor industry for 25 years I have to say that these services should only be accessed if you are in serious need of money fast. Otherwise it makes no sense to sell a car for 50/60% of its real value.

Be warned though as the price you’re quoted online is not necessarily the price you will get once you drive your car over to one of their depots for inspection. The car buyers are trained to find faults, blemished and discrepancies that give leverage to offer you less than your online quote.

Yet with even more money reduced off of the selling price most private car owners will still go ahead and sell their vehicle. This is usually due to a desperate need for money.

So if you do plan to sell up using a car buying service be warned that you’re going to pay a hefty price.

Importance of Online Reviews in the Automotive Sector

There’s no doubt that effective online marketing can help any product to gain exposure and influence consumer purchasing decisions. Combine competent marketing with honest online reviews from real customers and it’s going to result in new sales.

According to findings from a survey by BrightLocal, 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as they do personal recommendations.

The survey implemented in 2014, discovered that nearly 9 out of 10 consumers have read online reviews to ascertain the quality of a business or product, with 39% of people surveyed regularly checking online customer reviews before committing to buying.

85% of these people read up to 10 reviews to ensure that they were happy with the idea of using a company.

Sales and trust are intertwined. Customer reviews are behind the success of sites such as eBay where there is a tightly monitored review system that gives forth that much needed trust that makes it safe to buy.

Most buying takes place in a two part process, screening and selection. Screening looks at factors such as cost and the product itself. The selection part of the process involves whether the seller is on the side of the buyer. Most sales are made based on trust.

There are several follow on advantages of having secured that elusive trust. Once you have secured it from your buyer, it’s possible that they will buy from you without questions on your pricing, and they will share more information with you that could be beneficial to you to make future sales. They are more likely to take your phone calls and are more likely to continue to buy from you rather than to go with any other company. They’re even more likely to forgive the occasional mistake.

Think about your own experience with buying, would you rather buy from a car dealership (for example) that you have used before, as you feel that you trust them and have some idea of the quality of their cars and the service that they deliver. Or are you comfortable buying a new car from another dealership that you have found online, with no reviews and little information about them. You would need to weigh up the risks against what was involved in buying from the other dealership and other variables involved in this decision.

In summary, trust is key when it comes to making a sale. Online reviews remove some of the risk factor for a buyer. They can read what other buyers found to be of benefit from the product or service so that they feel comfortable enough to open their wallets. You can read more on the topic at

Arrive to your Next Big Event in Style

Transportation to events is something many drivers are concerned with, especially when alcohol will be served. It’s dangerous to drive your own vehicle, have a couple of drinks and drive home. Rather than risking your life, and the lives of other motorists, consider hiring transportation instead. Make a big, impressive entrance by arriving in a fancy limo.
Picking the Right Type of Limo
Every limo company has a fleet of vehicles. While most are the typical stretch limo, SUVs and larger vehicles are also converted into limos. It is ideal to pick the right type of limo for the needs of the occasion and the number of people you need to fit inside the vehicle. For formal events, a traditional stretch limo is ideal. If the event is a high-profile occasion, consider something like a Hummer limo, or something similar.
Make the Most of the Evening
Rather than just going to the event and right back home, take advantage of the hours you hired the limo services York PA for and ride around the city for a bit. You pay by the hour, get the biggest bang for your buck. Although refreshments are often served at events, sometimes you just need a full meal afterwards. Consider having the limo driver take you to a local restaurant and then consider going home.
Plan Well in Advance
When big events are planned, limos are booked quickly. It is best to call and book limo service as soon as you have the details for the event to ensure that the vehicle you wish to be transported in is available. In most cases, you can physically pick out the limo that you wish to have for the evening. This also lets you see what amenities the limo offers inside as far as beverages, lighting and seating.
Taking a limo to an event or just out for a special occasion is more affordable than many consumers believe. There are instances where it costs more to book a limo on short notice, so allow ample time between your booking and the event date. Hiring a limo is a safer mode of transportation and takes the stress off of you and your event guests from navigating through event traffic as well.
