Light Commercial Vehicle Trackers

From Tracker™, the leading stolen vehicle recovery specialist in the UK

Light Commercial Vehicle Tracking Devices

It’s no secret that light commercial vehicles, or vans, are the backbone of many small UK businesses. Tradesmen and many other sectors rely on them to get their job done effectively every single day. When an LCV is stolen, it can cripple a business, especially as the vehicles are often filled with thousands of pounds worth of expensive tools. 

The rise in vehicle theft, and the fact that the Ford Transit van is actually one of the most commonly stolen vehicles in the UK, 
has led many light commercial vehicle owners to search for new ways of protecting their investment. Tracker offers 24/7, real-time monitoring of your commerical vehicle and is on hand to protect your business.

Modern LCV Theft - Keyless Van Theft

Modern car theft and LCV theft have changed significantly in the past few years. Thieves have become much more sophisticated and tech-savvy. The most important change has probably been in keyless car theft which has skyrocketed. So-called relay attacks now account for the majority of car and LCV thefts. 

Without using any physical force that would damage a vehicle or set off alarms, a relay attack allows a criminal to clone and extend the signal from an LCV key fob to access the vehicle and start the van.

Modern LCV Theft - A Growing Problem

The equipment is not even expensive and can be bought online for a very low cost. It is so widespread and simple that experts actually advise keeping fobs in a Faraday pouch when not in use to prevent them being scanned. Do not forget to do the same with any spare set too!

Traditional, GPS-only van trackers would have been enough to protect most vehicles. However, thieves are getting better at jamming these GPS signals, with many criminals well versed in the techniques required. This has created a demand for van trackers that can locate a vehicle even in locations where GPS-only trackers cannot, such as underground car parks or shipping containers. An alternative van tracking system is needed, luckily Tracker™ are here to help.

Tracker™ for Light Commercial Vehicles

Trackers market-leading devices are designed specifically to stop criminals hiding your van or LCV in locations a GPS tracking system can’t track. Using innovative VHF (very high frequency) technology, it can locate vehicles even if they’re hidden in a shipping container or underground car parks. Tracker devices are so effective that UK police forces have installed Tracker detection units in over 2,000 police vehicles and throughout the national fleet of Police helicopters that comprise of the  National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopters, to track down stolen vehicles. 

One of the most important features is the fact that each Tracker device is installed by a skilled engineer in a unique place and are almost impossible to detect. So, without prior knowledge any potential thief would have no way of knowing a device was even present making them one of the best van trackers available.
