Up until the end of May Global Telemetrics has recovered £17.8 million this year so far.

With nearly half the year gone, May was yet another busy month for Global Telemetrics with £3.4m worth of vehicles recovered this month. This brings the total number of vehicles recovered so far to £17.8m. This is now only just over £5m away from the whole of last year’s total of £23m. 

First up is our constant winner for the most recovered vehicle of the month, step forward the Land Rover / Range Rover equating to 67% of all vehicles recovered this month. In total, this equated to £2.56m worth of vehicles recovered. This is the highest total of Range Rovers recovered since we started writing our monthly reviews. The Range Rover theft epidemic shows no signs of slowing down!

It’s not just Range Rovers we recover however, in second place this month with £250,000 worth of recovered vehicles is BMW with the X models being the most popular with thieves this month. 

Peugeot and Fiat based motorhomes take third spot with £260,000 worth of motorhomes/campervans stolen this month, Global Telemetrics highlighted the impending dangers of motorhome theft earlier this year. Recently, one of our case studies highlighted the successful recovery of a Fiat Ducato Autotrail Motorhome which was stolen while a customer was on holiday and recovered upon their return this can be found here: https://smartrack.uk.net/motorhome_theft_recovery_case_study_autotrail/

Due to the high percentage of vehicles recovered this month being Range Rovers there are no dedicated 4th and 5th places in our recovery highlights this month. Other vehicles recovered this month were: Audi, Bailey, Lexus, Mercedes, Peugeot and Volkswagen, we also recovered a customer’s Bomag roller.

In May, our two most popular hotspots of London and West Midlands were still prevalent however May saw a wider spread of locations for recoveries with vehicles recovered in locations such as: Merseyside, Nottingham, Manchester, Cheshire, Doncaster and Oldham amongst others. 

Whether it be a Range Rover or a Motorhome, a BMW or plant machinery nothing is safe from thieves as vehicle theft continues to rise.
