While cell phones have made it easier to communicate with others, there are many advantages that walkie talkies have that make them a much better choice for tow truck drivers. Let’s take a look at why walkie talkies are needed for the tow truck industry, focusing on their unlimited range and dispatching capabilities.

Reliable Communication is Key

The Motorola TLK-100 isn’t your average radio. It runs off of a 4G LTE cell towers, so if you can talk on a cell phone from a location, you’re reachable using this device.

Let our experienced radio professionals program your radios for you so that all you’ll need to do is take them out of the box and start experiencing the benefits of nationwide coverage.

Efficiency in Daily Operations

The Motorola TLK-100 walkie talkie offers excellent dispatching capabilities. With a walkie talkie, tow truck drivers can quickly and easily communicate with their dispatch center to let them know their status, report any problems they are encountering, or request assistance if needed. This helps to ensure that the dispatch center is always up-to-date on the status of each tow truck, which can help to reduce response times and improve overall efficiency. One of the most significant benefits of walkie talkies for tow truck drivers is the ability to communicate with other tow trucks in the area. This can be especially useful during an emergency situation, where quick and efficient communication is essential. With walkie talkies, tow truck drivers can quickly and easily coordinate their efforts with other drivers in the area, which can help to improve response times and reduce the risk of accidents.

Let’s get into the specifics of how the Motorola TLK-100 radio stands out compared to traditional cell phone use in daily operations.

Nationwide Push-To-Talk

Embrace two-way radio communication on a grander scale with the nationwide push-to-talk communication offered with the Motorola TLK-100. This device allows you to communicate seamlessly with the push of a button to members of your team regardless of their location in the continental United States. That means whether the person you’re trying to reach is five miles away or five states away, you’ll be able to reach them with the push of a button.

Self-Service Talkgroups

Tired of cross-communication or having to make separate phone calls to different trucks on duty? Self-service talkgroups can be managed in real-time remotely. This allows users to communicate with separate groups of people without bothering other team members with conversations that are irrelevant to them or could distract from their job duties. When you message a talkgroup, every member receives the communication and can respond immediately.

Military-Grade Durability

With the Motorola TLK-100, you’re getting the power of a nationwide network mixed in with the durability and reliability that has made Motorola Solutions a household name for decades. This is military-grade hardware built to survive the rigors of warfare. So you won’t have to worry about your device shattering if your staff drops it a few times.

It meets MIL-STD C, D, E, and F spec ratings and the MIL 810G Standard. That means it has been built to handle:

  • Low-pressure environments
  • High temperatures
  • Low temperatures
  • Temperature shock
  • Solar radiation
  • Rain blowing
  • Dust blowing
  • Immersion
  • Vibration
  • Shock

Cross-Platform Communication

Collaboration is a breeze thanks to the cross-platform communication offered by the Motorola TLK-100. This device can communicate flawlessly with mobile phones as long as you have the Wave OnCloud app enabled on the mobile device. This allows for instant communication between smartphones from all carriers and the radio.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

We’ve all been in a building or area with no cell phone reception, which could understandably be problematic for a radio that runs off of cellular towers. However, when you find yourself in one of these locations, your Motorola TLK-100 two-way radio can connect to Wi-Fi networks, which will replace the need for a cellular connection.

No More Lost or Missing Radios

What’s more, the WAVE Dispatch feature on the TLK-100 ensures that your devices can never go missing. Every radio will be fully tracked by a GPS system

Handheld or Mounted?

Preferences on how to use your radio? We have options for you! The Motorola TLK series radio can be either handheld or mounted. Handheld walkie talkies are ideal for drivers who need to move around a lot, as they are small and lightweight and can be easily carried in a pocket or on a belt clip. Mounted walkie talkies, like the Motorola TLK-150, are perfect for drivers who spend a lot of time in their vehicles, as they can be mounted on the dashboard or other location for easy access.

Whether they are handheld or mounted, walkie talkies provide a quick and easy way for tow truck drivers to communicate with their dispatch center and other drivers in the area, which can help to reduce response times and improve overall efficiency. Whether you are a tow truck driver or a manager in charge of a fleet, it is clear that walkie talkies are an essential tool that should be a part of every tow truck driver's kit.

What Costs Are Involved?

Because the radios run on 4G LTE coverage, there is an additional fee of $35 per month per radio*. We specifically program these radios to work with cell phone towers.

If you want to start using this game-changing device, we’ve got a great deal for you: If you sign up for a two-year agreement with Tech Wholesale for the use of these radios, we’ll reimburse you for the entire cost of the device.

Costs can be offset thanks to the digital nature of these devices. Because the TLK-100 runs on a digital network, you won’t have to worry about paying any licensing fees to the FCC. Most UHF and VHF radios require an additional licensing fee because you’re using airwaves owned by the federal government. However, when using a digital band, Uncle Sam won’t be claiming any of your money.

The TLK100 radio comes with 2 options for purchasing:

  • Plan 1: Reimbursement of radio cost with 30-month, $35/month/radio agreement*; OR
  • Plan 2: Purchase radios outright ($299/radio) with a $25/month/radio service plan with no contract (subscription can be canceled any time)
