We have seen an uptick in requests from business owners to add GPS tracking units to their fleet. GPS tracking systems improve the odds of vehicle recovery from theft, encourages safe driving, and promote regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance.
But can they save money on insurance? Yes. Insurance companies are always assessing risks, so businesses with better driver records and a well maintained fleet could see decreases in their commercial auto insurance. As an independent insurance agency, we have access to a variety of insurance companies which offer cost assistance. For your individual situation, additional savings may apply - talk to your KnowledgeBroker about a custom savings plan for your organization.

We queried several clients and developed the list below. While it is nowhere all-inclusive, it is a great place to start your search of looking for a GPS fleet provider.
