The Apple Watch preorders started today, 4-10-15, and people are going nuts for them. Preorders started at 3am EST and by the time offices opened at 9am EST most of the watches were already delayed until June or July for shipment. Being in the auto transport industry people may not think that a item such as the Apple Watch is useful for this industry, but in reality it is actually very useful.
As an auto transporter, the job is demanding to the extent that you’re always on the road driving and away from friends, family, etc. and it can take a toll on a person. An item like Apple Watch will help bring these people closer. Having the hauler being able to draw a heart on the Apple Watch and sending it to the truckers family to let them know that he is thinking of them and loves them. Maybe the trucker needs to send a quick text, but when he is driving he cannot text. Use your Apple Watch and choose one of the predetermined messages that you already created. It takes like 4 seconds to do. Don’t take your eyes off the road for that long, but you get where we are going with this. Also, while driving and dealing with customer calls and tasks to do people can become forgetful. We are all human; it happens. Hold the Apple Watch up and take a voice note and set a reminder time. It could be to remember to give a quote to a customer, or to send a fax to a broker, or just remember to eat. Then you can remember to do important tasks and not fall behind at all.
The Apple Watch will be synced to your iPhone and/or iPad. Instead of scrolling through those devices and leaving yourself open for a major accident or causing someone else to have an accident using the Apple Watch saves time and makes people lives easier. That is exactly what all transport companies need. Time saving, accident saving, money saving items that just plain work. Apple Watch solves some of the problems these companies have. We highly suggest haulers start purchasing these when they become more readily available.
