- MONEY PROBLEM #1: EMPLOYEES MISUSING COMPANY VEHICLES Allowing employees to take home their vehicles is an accepted practice in the towing industry. But lately, a growing number of employees have been caught using company vehicles to earn a little cash on the side. This kind of misuse can put your company at risk.
- MONEY PROBLEM #2: YOUR DISPATCH IS STUCK IN THE DARK AGES There are few industries that rely more on time management, accuracy of location, and efficient route planning than the tow truck industry. Yet, some tow companies have been stuck in the dark ages of communication, relying on pen-and-paper dispatching systems.
- MONEY PROBLEM #3: YOU’RE NOT ACCURATELY TRACKING THE COST OF FUEL Fuel is one of the biggest cost centers for a tow truck fleet. According to the Washington Post, it accounts for nearly 40 percent of fleet expenses. You can’t control fuel prices, but you can get smarter about tracking and controlling how much fuel your company uses.
