TRACKER is a market leader in vehicle tracking solutions - stolen vehicle recovery and fleet telematics - with over 20 years experience this year. We offer comprehensive products that combine pioneering technology with support from the police and good business sense, which is why we’ve sold and fitted over a million TRACKER units in the UK to date.
TRACKER helped recover a much loved 53 year old Jaguar E-type after it was stolen in broad daylight in West London.
Adrian Davenport, Police Liaison Manager for TRACKER explains, “Thieves are targeting classic cars, as they don’t have the sophisticated security features we take for granted on modern vehicles. It is understandable classic car owners aren’t keen on installing alarm systems and immobilisers as they can affect the aesthetics of the vehicle. A tracking unit is discreetly fitted to a car, so will not affect the look of the car. The device won’t stop a vehicle being stolen, however it will significantly increase the chances of the police recovering and returning the vehicle to its owner.”
A customer’s new Corsa has been recovered, following Cresser Vauxhall in Redditch, Worcestershire, recommending they have a Tracker stolen recovery unit (SVR) fitted.
Sales director at Tracker David Wilson said: “This case demonstrates the benefits of dealers offering SVR units to their customers. Tracker’s unique, market-leading SVR technology provides peace of mind for customers who want an added level of security to protect their new pride and joy, and the dealer gains an important revenue stream too.”
