Choosing the right Car Tracker in Birmingham.

Engine immobilisation is one way, but can often trigger a reaction from the car thief depending on how much they want that car combined with their own crime barriers.
Having a car Tracker in Birmingham can be the way to not only see where the car is but to recover it with no confrontation of having the car smashed up while in a police pursuit. Historic GPS Tracking data can also give great ways to identify lines of enquiry for the Police while investigating your crime. 
A better way to use engine immobilisation is to disable the vehicle once you know it has been stolen.  This may sound a little odd, but this removes the potential for a confrontation with the thief and a potential assault. When they stop the vehicle, the engine will not restart, causing them to abandon the vehicle and allow you to recover it without making an insurance claim.

How does a Car Tracker work?

Let us look at the honest and practical theft scenarios around the theft of your vehicle.

1) Control Room – Insurance Approved Tracker s5

Your Vehicle is driven without the driver tag present. Your phone will ring and you get to decide if it’s you driving or stolen from the options on the phone. If you are laying in bed and the vehicle is driving then… It’s stolen. You must call the police and give them your registration and they will liaise directly with the control centre to recover the vehicle.

Let’s just say the Police Response for The Police is good (I doubt it but let’s just pretend for a second) The Police liaise with the Control Centre for the Approved Insurance. Your vehicle is still moving. Police are dispatched to the stolen vehicle, it’s unlikely they are going to stop for the police, a police pursuit ensues and the police use a system called TPAC (Tactical Pursuit and Containment). 

Sounds good doesn’t it… very exciting… Not when your vehicle is smashed up by the police trying to catch the criminals. We are not criticising TPAC or the police response here at all BUT their objectives are to catch the criminals and have no regard to the vehicle. They just think the insurance will cover it. Which they will BUT again you are going to pay that price in your insurance premium.

This is not the case in all but it is very common.

2) Self-Monitored – GPS Car Tracker

Let’s keep it similar. You’re laying in bed and your phones alert goes off from our App Saying your vehicle is moving. You know it’s not you as you were asleep. You still need to call the police and you give them access to your login and they can have LIVE data about where the vehicle is located. 

The same scenario about TPAC and your vehicle can take place. What is different here is that you are not paying for the Insurance Approved Control Room which makes a big difference to the price of the Car Tracker and Installation.

3) What happens in over 80% of Car Thefts in Birmingham

You are asleep, you have your phone on silent and you don’t hear any calls or alerts.
You wake up and the car has gone. After 2 minutes of working out if the kids have borrowed it and checking you’re not going mad, you realise it’s been stolen.
