The side gig economy is bigger than many people realize, and companies that provide vehicles to employees may be surprised to learn their employees are using company property to carry out these side hustles without your knowledge. There are many reasons this can be problematic for businesses of all sizes. Below you’ll learn about a few important reasons this practice by employees could be bad for your business interests.

What’s the Big Deal about Employees Using Company Cars for Side Gigs?

These are just a few reasons your employees’ side hustles could be bad for your business.

Race car haulers carry a lot of expensive materials around. Not only are you transporting the cars themselves, which aren’t exactly inexpensive. Most car haulers also carry a full complement of tools, tires, parts, and diagnostic equipment that might even eclipse the costs of the cars themselves.

GPS asset tracking for trailers can help you protect your investments in tools, equipment, and cars in more ways than you realize. Here are a few prime examples.

Offers Geofencing Capabilities with Alerts

With geofencing, you can receive instant notifications or “alerts” if your race car haulers deviate from their planned routes, move beyond a designated perimeter, or operate outside of designated operating hours. This helps you know, right away, if there might be something questionable going on with your car haulers or any tools and equipment that may be equipped with GPS asset tracking onboard.

Far too often, people do not even know a theft has occurred until several hours later when the parts and pieces could be broken down and sold for massive profits. GPS tracking with geofencing reduces that risk.

There are various reasons why you should install a GPS tracking device in your fleet vehicles. Each company will have its own reasons for using a GPS tracker. Some companies are looking to be able to find their assets anywhere, at any time. They want to know where their vehicles have been and how long they’ve been there for.

Others may want to assess driver behavior and be alerted if poor driving behavior occurs that they need to handle quickly. A plug and play (PNP) GPS tracking device can get you set up quickly to start tracking and monitoring your fleet in real time.

Plug and Play GPS trackers hook right up to a vehicle’s OBD-II port (On-board diagnostics). All vehicles manufactured after 1996 should come with an installed OBD-II port located usually next to the steering wheel.

Benefits of Plug and Play GPS Tracking Devices

There are many benefits to using a PNP GPS tracking device. They install discretely and easily. They’re secure, durable and totally self-contained. They don’t require any hardwired connections, thereby making it incredibly simple to install into a vehicle with an OBD-II port. Other benefits include:
