Out of all of the areas in the UK, Trackershop is now fitting more car trackers in Birmingham than anywhere else. The cost of car crime has direct and indirect negative implications.
A high percentage of vehicles stolen without a Thatcham Approved tracker fitted are never recovered. Having to arrange insurance claims, hire cars, and replacing items that you may have lost in the vehicle is time-consuming and costly at the time. Typically, your insurance policy will then increase in price, meaning the long term costs of not recovering your vehicle will be ongoing.
The absolute best way to avoid this is by getting a Thatcham approved tracker fitted. Trackershop provides the quickest car tracker fitting in Birmingham and throughout the UK. Our Thatcham approved engineers will visit you at home, work, or dealership to install your car tracker.

BEST CAR TRACKERS IN BIRMINGHAM
If your insurance provider has asked you to install a GPS Car tracker in Birmingham then this will be to protect you from the ongoing inconveniences, heartache, and costs that you incur when your car goes missing.
The best car tracker in Birmingham that will protect your vehicle in the event of theft is currently the S5 Plus Tracker.
The S5 Plus Trackers are monitored by a fully-staffed control room. If an alert is raised, the control room team log straight into your car tracker to see the exact location of the vehicle. If the vehicle has been stolen the control room will guide the police and a security recovery team directly to where the vehicle is.
S5 PLUS TRACKER FEATURES
ADR (Automatic Driver Recognition). This covert remote system identifies you as an authorised driver. If a car thief steals your keys or starts the ignition in any way then an instant alert will be raised in the control centre. The control room then contacts you to confirm if the vehicle has been stolen. In the event of theft they can send the police straight to the vehicle using real-time tracking.
POLICE AUTHORISED IMMOBILISATION. If necessary, once the vehicle has been located geographically, the attending police officers can give authorisation to the control room to remotely immobilise the vehicle. This means that the thieves will not be able to start the vehicle again. The control room can reverse the immobilisation as soon as the vehicle is recovered, with no lasting impact.
The S5 Tracker has the same features as the S5+, however without the immobilisation.
The S5 and the S7 Trackers are currently the most commonly installed tracking devices for insurance purposes.

The S7 is currently the most popular Thatcham approved tracker installation anywhere in the UK.
The S7 is an incredibly effective tracking device, and the further good news is that it is also the cheapest car insurance tracker!

GPS Trackers come in all different shapes, sizes and costs. It’s fair to say that insurance approved vehicle trackers are at the higher end of the spectrum when it comes to price. This is largely down to the additional security features that are included with them and also down to the installation, they are all covertly installed and well-hidden to ensure that a thief isn’t able to find it easily when stripping back parts of the vehicle. For an entry level insurance approved tracker you are looking at around £150.00 for the tracker and installation. For trackers with additional security features, such as driver recognition and remote immobilisation you will be looking at around £595.00 Installed.
Installing a tracker is becoming increasingly more common practice for vehicle owners. The reason that insurance companies typically request for a Thatcham approved tracker to be installed, instead of other aftermarket trackers available is due to the impressive recovery rate that Thatcham approved trackers have, with some Thatcham companies such as Tracker UK boasting a 96% recovery rate. All Thatcham approved trackers are installed covertly in different areas of a vehicle keeping thieves on their toes, unlike trackers that are installed at the factory which are all installed in the same position in the vehicle.
There are various factors that determine whether installing a car tracker will lead to a direct reduction in your insurance policy. Typically if your vehicle is valued over around £20,000 then your insurance company are likely to honour a reduction in your policy, however this is subjective to the insurance underwriter. Of course it’s in their own interest to protect their investment when insuring you and with the proven theft recovery rates that Thatcham approved trackers have, you will find that the vast majority insurers will side to offering you the discount and in some cases insisting that they are mandatory for you to be insured for theft. Since the staggering increase in vehicle relay thefts – it isn’t just down to the value of the vehicle, if you have a certain model of vehicle such as a Range Rover, regardless of whether it’s over £20,00 or not insurance companies are stipulating that this is a mandatory requirement to obtain your policy.
