Reduce Insurance Costs with GPS Fleet Tracking

Posted by Jen Langan

Can you reduce insurance costs without reducing coverage?  The answer is "Yes", with the implementation of a GPS tracking solution.

There are 4 primary ways GPS tracking solutions like EZFleet can lower your insurance costs:

  1. Improving driver behavior contributes to lower premiums. Many accidents are caused by speeding and other reckless driving behaviors. GPS tracking solutions can monitor speed, hard braking, fast acceleration, hard right and left turns. You can use this information to train your drivers to be more conscious of their driving behavior. Also when your drivers are aware they are being monitored they are less likely to speed and risk an accident.
  2. GPS tracking increases recovery of stolen goods. Without GPS tracking, it often takes law enforcement weeks to track down a stolen vehicle. Many times the stolen good is never recovered and in turn your insurance company has to pay out a large claim. With a GPS tracking solution installed it is highly likely you will recover your vehicle, trailer, equipment, and assets quickly.
  3. Proper maintenance prevents accidents. If your vehicle has a mechanical malfunction or a tire blowout it is more likely to cause an accident. With a GPS tracking solution installed you can be notified when it’s time to perform regular maintenance like oil changes and tire rotations which decreases the chances of your vehicle being involved in an accident.
  4. Discourage misuse of vehicles. The more your vehicle is on the road the higher the chance of it being involved in an accident. With after hour and landmark alerts you can be made aware and employees are less likely to take the company vehicle out on a joy ride.

It only takes a few minutes to call your insurance company to see if they offer a discount. If they don’t, it might be time to shop around with one of the companies listed below.
