Learning About How To Use Rental Car Towing Hitches

We need to learn about how to use rental car towing hitches. We will be renting a car and will need to know how to use the towing hitches. This isn’t something we have ever used before.
We plan to tow our other car, with Allways Towing in Clearwater, to our new home which is why we needed to rent this car in the first place. I know it will be an interesting thing to do but it was the advice given to use about how to get that car there. If you have other towing questions check the Allways Towing Facebook page or the Allways Towing Twitter page and they will respond.
Our older car was my Grandpas and I don’t want anything to happen to it. It needs some work and we just don’t have the money to fix it right now but I hope we will someday. Until that time, we need to store it in our garage.
Since we are moving that means we need to take the car from our old house to our new one. It is a twenty-minute drive so not too far but impossible to do without towing it. We needed to rent a car with towing hitches to be able to do this.

After we get our car moved over to the new house we can work on everything else. We have a lot of things so we had to hire someone to move everything for us. They will pack everything up in the moving truck and unpack as well. This cost us some money but glad to not have to do it all myself.
Before we are able to rent the car with the towing hitches we wanted to learn about how they worked. Since we don’t have any experience with them we would need to figure out what needed to be done. Luckily we were able to have access to a few training videos to help us.
Since we will be renting the vehicle to tow our car we don’t want to mess anything up. If we did, we might have to pay the company and that would not be in our budget. We want to do everything correctly so there are not any issues.
It will feel good once we have everything at the new house. I don’t want to have to stress about it anymore. Moving is always so stressful and I will be glad once the car and all our belongs are where they are supposed to be.

Track Drivers with GPS

Promoting Better Safety and Efficiency with Automobile Software

Throughout the years, car and truck usage has gotten ever safer. Driving this progress forward has been the development of several important and novel technologies, from collapsible steering columns to multi-directional airbags. Each new development makes operating vehicles exponentially safer, which in turn makes car and truck transportation more viable for consumer and commercial usage. These days, the development of effective and easy to use software continues this positive trend. In this article, we will explore a number of ways in which readily available software can improve the driving experience, for everyday users and business owners alike.

One of the most common types of software implemented in modern cars and trucks is the GPS, or global positioning system.

GPS Tracker for your business
Track your drivers with a GPS System

GPS technology can come built into the vehicle’s console, or as a small piece of hardware that can be adhered directly to the windshield. GPS units communicate with satellites, sending signals back and forth to determine ┬álocation. Coordinates are then placed on a digital map stored in the unit’s memory, giving you a speedy and accurate reading of where you are. Most GPS units can give you step by step directions to specific addresses and points of interest, like hotels and hospitals. Because they allow you to navigate while driving without constantly looking down at a map, GPS units make you a safer, more responsive driver. They also have the advantage of working in remote areas where cellphones may not, as they do not rely on signal towers.

If you own a business that uses cars or trucks in your everyday proceedings, using GPS software in your vehicles can yield a second benefit.

Many industrial GPS units are designed so that they not only relay their location to the vehicle they are being used in, but also to a monitoring software. Using this software will allow you to check on your drivers as they go about their everyday business. You can make sure that they are driving efficiently, managing time wisely, and practicing safe behaviors. Getting by the second updates on the location of your drivers can allow you to tighten up your logistics, which can drastically reduce your overhead costs. Using GPS monitoring software can improve the performance of many different business types, from pizza delivery services and small retail companies, to large scale shipping and transport corporations.

Many newer model vehicles come from the dealership with a number of useful and safety enhancing software types already installed. Some use “back up cams”, or cameras located near the rear license plate, to help you do a perfect parallel parking job and watch for potential dangers as you pull out of a spot. Others monitor the positions of the road marking lines under your car, alerting you and even automatically braking if it notices that you are drifting over a line in a dangerous way. Still others work with the transmission itself, adjusting settings based on whether you have chosen to optimize your fuel efficiency or driving performance.
