Boston, MA - PBIC Partners announces national distribution of patented Trunk Buddy system

Mike Hogan, EVP of PBIC Partners said, I am pleased to announce our role as the exclusive global distributor of the Trunk Buddy family of products.

We are particularly pleased with the response to our patented Trunk Buddy tie down system which has been designed to fit all personal use vehicles (domestic and foreign) from compact cars to SUV’s.

The Swiss made Trunk Buddy features precision manufactured components which allows the driver to transport oversize cargo with the trunk open but now with guaranteed locking system which prevents the cargo from shifting.

The trunk buddy is the smart and convenient option to unwieldy bungee cords and requires only 1 person to secure the trunk.

Hogan continued “The Trunk Buddy is an example of PBIC Partners developing proprietary products aimed at problem solving for all consumers with a particular interest in the needs of seniors and those with limitations.

Trunk Buddy uniquely addresses a recently completed AAA survey describing the dangers associated with transporting unsecured loads.

“According to a AAA study, road debris was involved in more than 200,000 crashes in the U.S from 2100 through 2014, resulting in 39000 injuries and 500 deaths.”

While fines vary from state to state both R.I. and Massachusetts have a first offense penalty of $ 100. and then followed by $500 for subsequent violations for transporting unsecured cargo.
