Trackershop have seen a huge increase in the demand for car trackers in Surrey in the last few years.
With its rolling country side, picturesque villages and fast links in to London, Surrey is very much one of the most affluent home counties and an extremely desirable place to live.
The quaint way of life also means that shops and facilities can be quite spaced out. This leads to driving being an essential part of life, with many households having at least one car on the landscaped driveway.
Naturally, where there is affluence and a high number of vehicles, car thieves are not far behind. Organised car crime gangs will focus in on an area until they have exhausted all resources with methods such as relay crime becoming particularly common in the Surrey area.
CAT 5 TRACKERS SURREY
When it comes to the most comprehensive protection against car theft in Surrey, CAT 5 insurance trackers offer the highest level of Thatcham regulated vehicle security devices available.
Trackershop have seen a quick and consistent increase in the amount of CAT 5 trackers fitted in Surrey recently. This is due to several reasons, mainly the increase in organised car crime in the area and the average value of the vehicles being targeted.
As a result, car insurance providers will be either recommending or insisting that vehicle owners have a Thatcham approved CAT 5 tracker installed in the Surrey area.
The CAT 5 tracker has the additional security features of Police Authorised Immobilisation as well as DRS (Driver Recognition System). This further protects against key theft and relay crime.
Relay crime is becoming the main way in which cars are stolen from outside an owners home. A car thief will use a portable transmitter to firstly impersonate the vehicle locking system. They will then relay this response to the car key fob inside the home, which will then relay back the correct response, opening the cars locking system and starting the ignition.
Surrey has had a surge in the number of keyless car thefts by organised crime groups. It is therefore advised to keep your car key away from the front door in order to minimise the chance of it being scanned.

The CAT 5 tracker isn't the only option for vehicle security. The CAT 6 insurance tracker is also extremely popular for any road vehicle.
