  • The best vehicle tracker for your bus

    Recently I read an incredible story about how someone managed to ‘sell’ then steal four locomotives, 30 wagons and nine coaches over a two year period.

    Needless to say that the buyers never received any of the items but Barry Daly a.k.a ‘The Fat Controller’ made a cool £40,000 from his thefts though presumably he wasn’t able to take it with him when he went to prison!  The story illustrates that nothing is ‘off limits’ to the canny vehicle thief and that includes buses. Commanding high second hand prices a bus is as attractive to the vehicle thief as any other item.  Bus operators will be keen to know what they can do to protect their treasured investment.  The answer is beautifully simple: a bus tracker secreted within the bus in an unobtrusive place so that the thief will be blissfully unaware that the very moment he takes off in it he’ll not be on any ‘busman’s holiday’ but will instead be monitored and the location he is at will be pinpointed by the bus tracker at every given moment. VHF/GPS/GPRS Thatcham accredited bus tracking systems emit signals that are traced by the control centre and passed on to the police and they will be on the case and be able to catch the thief wherever he may be, including abroad.  Whether he tries to hide the bus within or even under a building the bus tracker’s signal will still ring out loud and clear.  With years of experience we at Vehicle Tracking Tech have a range of bus trackers to suit every budget coupled with a no-nonsense guarantee and a nationwide fitting service at a time and place to suit you.

    End your fears for your valuable and valued bus by contacting us at your earliest convenience so that we can take the strain away by fitting our state of the art bus tracker giving you the ultimate in bus tracking protection!

  • The best tracker for your Land Rover

    With their beautiful yet robust looking lines and instantly recognisable shape Land Rover cars are among the most iconic vehicles ever produced with a pedigree that goes back to 1948 and the car is understandably on many people’s dream wish list. Land Rover’s New Discovery and Discovery Sport are set to be among the sought-after vehicles of 2017. Regrettably however, there are people out there as eager to deprive you of it as you are to keep it. Two years the Guardian newspaper reported ago that ‘the number of cars stolen in England and Wales rose by 9% in 2015, with 75,656 incidents reported by unlucky motorists’ going on to say that the Land Rover Defender is one of the top three stolen cars . See Is your car the most stolen model in England and Wales?

    The report continued ‘The surge in thefts of Land Rover Defenders prompted the insurer NFU Mutual, which focuses on farmers, to urge owners in April to be more security savvy. Claims from its customers following thefts of Defenders rose to £1.8m in 2015, an increase of 8% over 2014’. Dr Ken German, a director at the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators pointed out that since “most don’t have the security systems that come as standard on modern cars, you can see the attraction for criminals.”

    21st century car thieves need 21st century technology to challenge and slash the thieves’ chance of success and that comes in the shape of a car tracker. With GPS/GPRS VHF satellite capacity these Thatcham Cat 5 or 6 accredited car trackers which are carefully hidden in the most undetectable parts of the car will track its every move and instantly communicate with the control centre and police should a thief attempt to steal and drive away in it. GPS car trackers are the state of the art response to today’s car thieves giving the best ever chance of assuring a safe return of an owner’s pride and joy whether at home or abroad.

    For a tiny fraction of the cost of the car a GPS car tracker gives peace of mind other methods of protection simply cannot match and in many cases can even reduce your insurance costs. We at Vehicle Tracking Tech (VTT) have a long history in fitting car trackers and with the widest possible range, the very best prices and a nationwide fitting service included in the price, VTT is your obvious one stop shop for the ultimate car guardian so call us without delay and together we can beat the car thieves at their own game!

  • The best tracker for your plant & machinery

    The best tracker for your plant & machineryAn alarming report from The National Plant and Equipment Register recently exposed how plant & machinery is becoming a preferred target for thieves. It found that “The recovery rate for stolen plant and equipment is less than 5%. 95% of equipment that is stolen every year, year on year, is not recovered”

    The reasons given for this worrying trend is that the Government has given no measurable target in relation to plant and machinery theft to Police Chief Constables coupled with the fact that penalties handed out are insufficient to deter criminals while rewards are high. Shockingly even moving such equipment from one police force area to another can be enough to guarantee the thieves can get away with it. This is because “There is little incentive for Chief Officers to become involved in investigating crimes which are both not a priority and which involve other police force clear-up rates”. National statistics show that there were 12,541 UK thefts of plant in 2010 with numbers well up on that in the ensuing years. 2,259 of them were JCBs, the number one stolen item, up an eye watering 66% on the previous year! Plant & Machinery theft cost the UK construction industry a staggering £800 million in 2014.

    Faced with the apparent disinterest on the part of the authorities and the rising incidence of this type of theft what can the concerned owner do, particularly considering that most such machinery is kept outside on sites, often far from the public’s eyes? Fortunately, the answer is as brilliantly simple as it is simply brilliant: the fitting of a plant & machinery tracker. A plant & machinery tracker is a 21st century response to the 21st century vehicle thief who makes it their job to deprive owners of their valuable plant. Secreted within the very guts of the equipment a VHF GPS/GPRS Thatcham accredited plant & machinery tracker will monitor its whereabouts on a 24/7 basis, notifying the control centre if the equipment is moved without the owner’s knowledge. This information is then passed on the police and the owner giving the best possible chance of an early recovery. Additional features include motion sensing enabling the tracker to kick into action if the equipment is mounted onto a low loader; geographic plotting which sparks the tracker into life should it is taken out of a specified area and even state of the art immobilisation. Perhaps the most amazing feature that has recently been incorporated into the system is ADR (automatic driver recognition) which protects your vehicle from keyless car theft and key cloning. This is the ultimate in protection as the device can be configured to alert the owner of unauthorised movement of the vehicle when the card is not present or by rendering starting the vehicle an impossibility altogether.

    The effectiveness of these devices was shown recently when a tractor that was stolen from a cricket club was returned the same morning due to the tracker that had been fitted. We at Vehicle Tracking Tech (VTT) have many years experience in fitting trackers to plant and machinery throughout the country at times best suited to owners at a fraction of the cost of the equipment and with the very real chance of a reduction in insurance premiums. Give us a call so that we can help you rest easy in the knowledge that thieves will be thwarted if they target your valuable kit.

  • Motorbike Trackers

    A recent survey of vehicle thefts threw up some alarming results that take one’s breath away:

    • There are more motorbikes stolen in the UK than the number of new ones bought
    • Most manufacturers don’t even fit them with an immobiliser
    • It takes no more than 20 seconds to steal a motorbike
    • A staggering £3 million worth of motorbikes are stolen from streets in the UK every month!
    • Hondas, Yamahas, Kawasakis, and Suzukis account for 85% of all stolen motorbikes

    Given facts like these motorbike owners are going to ask themselves what they can do to ensure their motorbike is not one of the stolen ones that is never returned to them. The answer is simple and unequivocal: fit a motorbike tracker. A GPS or VHF motorbike tracker with Thatcham accreditation is a tiny device that is hidden within the workings of the motorbike than springs into action the moment the thief makes off with your prized possession.

A motorbike tracker represents a very modest investment in comparison with the cost of a new motorbike that can be as much as £20,000 and an average of around £5,000.
