Things to Avoid While Using GPS
There’s no need to hide the use of a GPS tracking system. In fact, informing your clients about GPS is a good idea. A client contract should include GPS information, and sales people should be able to tell clients about any GPS tracking device. There are also some things to avoid when installing GPS trackers.
1. GPS for All: if you are going to use GPS tracking devices, make sure that you use them on all vehicles. It is illegal (in most states) to only install devices when a buyer has a particularly bad credit record.
2. Additional Client Payments: do not ask clients to pay for a GPS system. Buyers should not have to pay any kind of GPS fee. If you want to buy a large number of GPS trackers, speak with an RMT associate about bulk rates.
3. Avoid the “Miracle Clause”: it is not a good idea to tell buyers that a GPS system can help rebuild credit. While it’s true that making payments on time will help build credit, a car dealership that masquerades as a credit repair outfit may be acting illegally.
4. Hidden Details: if you choose a tracker that shuts down an engine or performs any other tasks, do not hide these details from your clients.
5. Proper Removal: if a client makes all necessary payments, or buys a vehicle, a GPS tracker installed by a car dealership must be removed.
