Vehicle Trackers Manchester

Greater Manchester is a notorious hotspot for car theft. In fact, the region is the third worst county in England and Wales for crime.

We at Car Specialist Customs understand how devastating it is when vehicles are stolen- it robs you of your prized possession, causes you distress and anguish, and can make you fearful of your safety. It also leaves you without transportation and it can bump up your insurance premiums. You may even have to go through the stress and expense of buying a new car altogether.

So, what is a reliable way to protect against car thieves?

The answer is a vehicle tracker.

Read our blog post on ‘Our 7 Best Car Trackers of 2022’ to learn more about vehicle trackers in Manchester.

What is a Vehicle Tracker?

A vehicle tracker is a GPS system which is installed inside your car. It allows you to track the location of your car, in real-time. This feature is especially useful in case someone steals your vehicle- as you can keep tabs on where your vehicle is and provide this information to the police.

Accurate and sophisticated, this GPS technology can usually pinpoint the exact location of the car within a three-metre radius.

Using satellite navigation, the vehicle tracker monitors the location of the car. It transmits information via satellite from the vehicle, almost instantly. Often, the vehicle tracker is paired with a smartphone app, so you can track the location of your vehicle from your phone, in real-time.

Depending on the model of the vehicle tracker, you can access different features. For example, some vehicle trackers will notify the owner via their mobile phone if their car ignition has been turned on without the use of the owner’s tag.

Vehicle trackers can also help protect from exploitative technology used increasingly by criminals to hack into cars.

The best vehicle trackers provide the ultimate protection against key cloning, key theft and relay attack theft methods. It is even better if the vehicle tracker requires Bluetooth Driver Detection cards to keep the car immobilised, preventing the car from being driven by any unauthorised personnel.

The key features of vehicle trackers in Manchester are:

  • Thatcham approved.
  • Tracking coverage throughout the UK and Europe.
  • Multi GNSS (GPS, GLONASS & Galileo) satellite technology, which provides accuracy and reliability.
  • Remote immobilisation by the Monitoring Team, in the event of theft, to prevent the engine from being restarted.
  • Multiple alerts- including early warning theft alerts.
  • Mobile Tracking App- to help you remotely access and manage security, safety and convenience features from the push of a button.
  • Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) tags provide immediate theft detection if the vehicle is stolen.
  • Journey Reports.
  • GEO Fence Alerts- in-app alerts or reports when vehicles enter and exit geofence locations.

Installing a vehicle tracker in your car is a smart decision. It will enable you to know the location of your car at all times, which will give you peace of mind when you are away from your vehicle.

It will also help you track the location of your car in case it is stolen, which will hopefully help you recover it faster.

The statistics speak for themselves- there is a 96% theft recovery rate on vehicles fitted with a Vehicle Tracker, so why not invest in one today?

Additionally, some vehicle trackers also display information such as the car’s temperature and fuel level, making it a very useful multifunctional system for your car.

Furthermore, the more advanced models of vehicle trackers (such as the Meta Trak S5 VTS Deadlock) offer remote engine immobilisation. This notifies the car owner through their mobile phone in case the ignition has been turned on without the ADR tag.

As you can see, vehicle trackers are an amazing high-tech solution for immediate theft detection.

Finally, vehicle trackers are also ideal for company cars, so that the employer can track where the employee’s vehicle is at all times. This is especially beneficial for people with large fleets of trucks or heavy goods vehicles so that bosses can continuously monitor the location of valuable goods.

Vehicle trackers in Manchester are a great way to protect your valuable investment, even if you have insurance, as this may not fully cover the costs of having to buy a brand-new vehicle, should yours be stolen.
