This has been a difficult year of ups and downs for so many in trucking. Back in April, we surveyed users of the Trucker Tools driver app to find out what your top concerns and challenges were at the beginning of the pandemic. You recently responded to our follow up survey about how the pandemic is affecting you now, which we share in this blog post.
Trucker Tools’ new parking tool puts an overnight and long-term parking option right in the palm of your hand. Our new parking feature allows you to view security features for each parking location before you reserve and pay for your truck parking spot. You also can view user-submitted, crow-sourced info on the parking lot and its amenities before you book your spot.
Thanks to a new partnership with TVC Pro-Driver, we’re excited to introduce a new CDL legal protection option to the Trucker Tools driver app. It’s now easier than ever for you to quickly find a local attorney to assist you with traffic violations that may jeopardize your livelihood. TVC Pro-Driver’s network of more than 7,000 attorneys has a 92.7 percent success rate in getting traffic violations reduced or dismissed.
Our new, in-app parking reservation tool is all about saving you time and stress. The parking spots you’ll find in our driver app are located close to major highways so that you don’t have to drive far off your route to park. You also can reserve parking spots up to 90 days ahead of time if you need longer-term parking or just want to plan ahead. Why wait? Read more about this great feature right now!
