WHY DO I NEED A CAR INSURANCE TRACKER?
CAR INSURANCE TRACKERS - PROVEN TO PROTECT AGAINST THEFT
Tech-savvy organised car thief groups are already a step ahead of any recent advancements made in car manufacturers' factory security features.
This means that, if you have a high-value vehicle on your drive, the standard security features (including the door lock) may very well be useless against these car crime groups.
The category of car tracker that you require will depend on the type of vehicle and/or your location. Your insurance provider might stipulate the exact category (e.g. S5 tracker) or they might be more flexible, and state that any Thatcham approved category will be suitable.
2 MAIN REASONS FOR A CAR INSURANCE TRACKER
- The insurance premium is lowered. As mentioned, under certain circumstances, many insurance companies are not insuring a vehicle without first having a GPS tracker fitted. However, the benefit extends to all car owners, as the added protection that a tracker offers your vehicle is fully recognised by insurance co's and has resulted in them lowering premiums for those who have them fitted.
- The best security for your vehicle. The violation of having your vehicle stolen or tampered with is a tough prospect for so many drivers to accept. The idea of never getting their vehicle (and any belongings) back is too much to comprehend for many.
Installing a car tracker is one of the most effective security methods to protect your vehicle from theft, as well as retrieving it in the event of it being taken.
Many vehicles are stolen by organised crime gangs who target specific vehicles to order.
This typically means they are highly skilled at what they do, and can make a car 'invisible' within seconds- and can even ship it out of the country within hours! A GPS tracker really is the best way to counteract this kind of criminal activity, as they are well equipped to deactivate factory-fitted security alarms.
Thatcham approved GPS trackers send an instant alert for any unauthorised use or if someone tries to tamper with the device. These alerts are picked up instantly by the control centre, who then take action by contacting you to confirm the unauthorised use.
When you confirm your vehicle as stolen the Control Centre will monitor your vehicle's location in live time, whilst liaising directly with the police, to ensure a quick and swift recovery of your vehicle. Once located, our security team will remain with your vehicle until our recovery vehicle arrives to return your vehicle to you.
