Highlights from The Florida Tow Show 2024

Nearly 200 exhibitors and a huge crowd gathered in beautiful Florida for three days of networking activities and educational seminars.

Towers learned about transporting electric vehicles safely, avoiding damage claims, and much more! There was something for everyone to learn. The seminars included a range of different topics and themes, including:

  • Electric vehicle transport
  • Avoiding damage claims
  • Under the hood with Google
  • Understanding today's vehicles
  • Tools that make a difference
  • Surviving the EV encounter
  • Modern vehicle lock issues

Allstate Training Sessions

The Allstate training sessions were an amazing opportunity to learn the latest in the towing industry. It was also an amazing opportunity to network with other towing professionals and a chance to win a Nite Beam Hi-Vis safety vest from Beacon Funding's Stephanie Richards! Stephanie gave out vests as a gesture of Beacon Funding's commitment to Slow Down Move Over.

The lucky towers who received vests were:

Pre-Approval Success Story

Towers are usually surprised to discover that Beacon Funding can help businesses get pre-approved for tow truck financing before they even attend a tradeshow. That's exactly what happened with Rachael Fox and Kyle Patti from Kyle's Towing & Recovery.

Beacon Funding helped Rachael and Kyle get pre-approved before the Florida Tow Show and helped them pick their dream tow truck (featured below). With a pre-approved in their pocket and Beacon Funding's support, they were able to help them get their hands on a truck fast and easily before anyone else!

We're happy to get you pre-approved for your next tow truck, Rachael and Kyle! We look forward to hearing about how your tow truck helped grow Kyle's Towing & Recovery's revenue!
