Tracker partnership protects over 10000 Swift UK built caravans
Date: 22 October 2013
TRACKER, the stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) expert, celebrates the first year anniversary of its partnership with Swift Group, Europe’s leading caravan manufacturer, offering caravan buyers protection from theft at the point of sale.
Recognising the very real threat its customers face from criminals, the Swift Group took action to protect caravan buyers through its partnership with TRACKER. One year since the agreement began, thousands of Swift customers are benefiting from the added security TRACKER’s award-winning technology provides.
Steve and Carol Faulkner, from Telford, Shropshire bought a Swift caravan, complete with a TRACKER unit fitted and a
three-month free subscription, which they continued, once the trial ended. That summer their caravan was stolen, but once TRACKER was informed of the theft and the unit was activated, police recovered and returned their pride and joy within a few days.
Steve Faulkner says, “Had Swift not fitted all their new caravans with tracking devices, I sadly don’t think we would have got our new caravan back safely. I want to thank TRACKER for such an impressive product and providing excellent service. The speed at which they found our stolen caravan made a massively stressful situation that much easier to bear. Needless to say we will be continuing our subscription for as long as we have a caravan, which thanks to Swift and TRACKER will be for many a year to come.”
Adrian Davenport, Police Liaison Officer for TRACKER says, “Our unique partnership with Swift, means that all new Swift caravans are fitted with Battery Powered TRACKER Retrieve. This combined with our relationship with all UK police forces ensures the successful recovery of Swift caravans, bringing their customers an unrivalled level of security and peace of mind. We understand the heartbreak caused by a stolen caravan but now we are helping Swift owners close the net on the criminals.”
Battery Powered TRACKER Retrieve has been developed using TRACKER’s unique award winning technology that does not rely on the caravan’s leisure battery in order to operate. The unit, which lasts for five years, has a self-contained and hidden power source, which means it is even tougher for crooks to uncover.
As with all TRACKER’s SVR solutions, Battery Powered TRACKER Retrieve uses Very High Frequency (VHF) technology which offers the ultimate level of security, enabling police to locate stolen caravans even when they are concealed in containers, lock-ups or shipped abroad. Customers with TRACKER units fitted can also benefit from generous insurance discounts with many insureres offering to discount by at least 10% and some up to 25%.
