GPS Tracking for Moving Companies

    When you’re running a professional moving company, you need to get the most from your moving trucks. Installing GPS trackers on them will help you maximize their availability and protect your biggest assets.

    Optimize your fleet

    You want your trucks up-and-running as much as possible. With a GPS tracker that connects to your onboard diagnostics (OBD) port, you can monitor engine health and see engine codes from the office, so you can avoid costly delays from unscheduled maintenance. 

    With our convenient GPS tracking platform, you can monitor all your vehicles at once and help your drivers plan safer, more efficient routes from one site to the next. You can set up boundaries to get alerts when a truck arrives at or leaves from a move site, so you’ll be better equipped to know how long each job takes and stay on track.

    Enforce safe driving habits

    Whether your employees drive or your customers do, having a GPS tracker connected to the OBD port will help you track fuel efficiency, brake force, acceleration force, and other data that can show whether someone is driving safely or taking too many risks.

    You’ll also be able to see exactly how much time your drivers have spent on the road, so you can comply with hours of service rules and other commercial driving regulations.

    Increase your security

    If one of your trucks is ever stolen, a GPS tracker will ensure it’s swiftly recovered. Using GPS features like geofencing, you can receive mobile alerts the moment your vehicle leaves a job site or another designated location—so you’ll know the moment a truck is somewhere it’s not supposed to be.

    The Spytec GPS platform 

    Once you install a GPS tracker, you can monitor it in real-time using the Spytec GPS platform. This straightforward, intuitive software lets you see all your trackers at once, and you can use convenient filters to home in on the data you want. You can access it with a computer or via mobile, so whether you’re in the office or on the go, you can always monitor your crews.

    Get the best in GPS tracking

    For moving companies, there are two main GPS trackers we recommend: the OBD Tracker and the GL300. Each of them provide an excellent balance of affordability and functionality, but which one is right for your company will depend on what you’re most focused on.

    Spytec GPS OBD Tracker

    The OBD Tracker connects to your onboard diagnostics (OBD) port and gives you access to helpful engine-related data. It’s perfect for companies that want to maximize their vehicle’s efficiency and encourage safe driving habits.

    Spytec GPS GL300 Tracker

    Some employers want their GPS tracker to be more discreet, and for that, we recommend the GL300—our best-selling GPS tracker. This smaller, battery-powered model can be attached under the hood or beneath the chassis of your vehicle. We also have a full suite of accessories for this model, so you can extend the battery life to up to six months, install it in a protective case, and adapt it to meet your needs.

    As a professional moving company, you need to get the most from your moving trucks. Installing GPS trackers on them will help you maximize their availability and protect your biggest assets.
