The main reason for fitting a Thatcham approved car tracker is to further protect your vehicle against theft.
In the last few years there has been a substantial increase in sophisticated car thief gangs targeting cities and built up areas with the intention of stealing cars ‘to order’. Techniques such as relay crime have quickly become very common amongst thieves, due to the easy, quick and effective nature of the process.
Liverpool has become one of the most targeted cities in the UK with regards to car related crime and burglary- with many burglaries specifically targeting car keys.
Organised car gangs will steal cars to order to be either sold on in the UK, broken down for expensive parts or shipped abroad. The Audi (A3, A4 ,A6) and BMW (X5, X6, 730d) are currently the most stolen vehicles in Liverpool.
The good news is that the car trackers fitted in Liverpool by Trackershop override all known theft techniques and trigger a level 1 police response to reprimand thieves in the act.
