TRACKER puts its money where its mouth is
Date: 03 April 2014
Marking an industry first, stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) expert, TRACKER, has launched a 48 Hour Recovery Guarantee for new customers purchasing an SVR unit for a car or LCV. If TRACKER is unable to locate a customer’s vehicle within 48 hours, it will refund the customer’s subscription fee*.
TRACKER is the only SVR product that combines VHF, GSM and GPS technology to accurately pinpoint where a stolen vehicle is located and is the only SVR solution to be used by all of the UK’s police forces.
Furthermore, the TRACKER Mesh Network creates an added defence against vehicle theft by using other vehicles already fitted with a SVR unit to identify stolen vehicles, creating its very own mobile network of listening devices. When a vehicle fitted with a TRACKER unit** passes any TRACKER SVR equipped vehicle that has been reported stolen, it automatically sends a signal to TRACKER providing the location of the stolen asset. Unlike other devices, TRACKER’s unique technology can locate stolen vehicles anywhere, even when they are hidden in a garage, container or underground car park.
Andy Barrs, Police Liaison Officer for TRACKER explains: “We’re giving our customers a new level of confidence in the form of a Guarantee. Installing a TRACKER significantly increases the chance of police locating and returning a stolen vehicle, indeed 95% of stolen cars fitted with TRACKER are returned to their owners and 86% of these are recovered within 24 hours. Of course, if a stolen car isn’t recovered the customer’s insurer will cover the cost of replacing the vehicle, depending on the level of cover they have, but our new 48 Hour Recovery Guarantee helps to give added peace of mind as well as additional financial comfort should the worst happen.”
To date TRACKER, with the police, has to date recovered over £479 million worth of stolen vehicles and continues to recover on average £1 million worth of stolen vehicles each month.
