Several years ago, truckers would have to spend over $2000 for them to be able to use a single device and enjoy its benefits.
With the way things are right now, trucking companies can get the device for way lesser. Some providers charge as little as $200 – $250 per year (inclusive of the hardware, training, and installation of the device) while providing high-quality service.
Other providers, however, are a bit more pricey. They charge 4 – 5 times more and they also use lock-in contracts (usually a period of 3 – 5 years). What’s more, they charge extra for the installation, the device, and training.
That being said, while ELDs have become more affordable nowadays, you still need to do your due diligence to find the best ELD provider that will give you a reasonable price with the best features.
