As a Range Rover owner you have most likely heard more than enough about the high crime rate attached to the popular 4x4s. This is particularly more prominent around London and the home counties, where the levels of theft far exceed any other area of the UK.
Unfortunately there is a good reason why this is such a topic of conversation. There are now three models of Range Rover in the top 10 list of the UK’s most stolen vehicles- with the Range Rover Sport taking the number 1 spot overall.
It is a worrying time to be a Range Rover owner, as both their high value and popularity have contributed to Range Rovers becoming sitting ducks for persistent and highly skilled car thieves.
This is why insurance approved/Thatcham accredited CAT 5 trackers for Range Rovers have become a standard request by insurance companies in the last few years.
As a Range Rover owner, when you purchased your vehicle (or re-newed your insurance policy) it is likely that your insurance company asked you to install a Thatcham approved tracking device.
Even so you may still have a few questions surrounding the issue. We will do our best to answer any questions you have about why you need a Range Rover CAT 5 tracker, and which one is best for you.
Range Rovers are the most popular luxury 4×4 and can exceed £160,000 in value when purchased new. In addition to this the re-sale value is still extremely high, as they depreciate at a much lower level than most vehicles. Therefore they retain their value a lot longer, which is appealing to thieves.
They are popular throughout the world, so can be sold overseas easily. This also makes them nearly impossible to trace without a tracker, and can be in a shipping container out at sea within hours of being stolen! In this kind of scenario the chance of recovery is pretty much non-existent.
Developing the effectiveness of factory fitted car security is a huge ongoing priority for all car manufacturers. Over the last 30 years, there have been some incredible advancements in the levels of theft prevention security.
Alas, with each development thieves are always only a few steps behind. Using key cloning and electronic hacking technology organised car crime rings have been able to sidestep factory security and even use it to their own advantage!
THE BENEFITS OF A CAT 5 FOR RANGE ROVER
However, the good news is that since the increased use of GPS trackers for Range Rovers, the rate of recovery has increased significantly!
Here are some of the benefits of a CAT 5 Range Rover tracker:
- -24/7 control centre monitoring
- -Police authorise immobilisation
- -Level 1 police response
- -Advanced GPS + GSM tracking technology
- -Driver Recognition System (DRS), protecting against key theft/cloning
- -Tamper alerts
- -Tow away alerts
- -Peace of mind!
With Range Rover theft being so topical and constantly being covered in the media, it is hard to escape the worry. The good news is that simply having a CAT 5 tracker installed eliminates the constant risk and worry that Range Rover owners experience. It defeats the point of having a luxury 4×4 if you spend the whole time wondering if it will still be on your driveway when you wake up the next morning. The peace of mind that comes with the protection from a CAT 5 is worth it alone.
