September Recovery Highlights
Dark nights are approaching, Autumn weather is here, as September ends and Spooky Season begins, the nightmare continues for car owners as theft figures continue to rise.
After already surpassing last year’s £23m recovery total during August, we are now in new territory as far as value recovered for the year is concerned. Thanks to an additional £3m worth of vehicles with our devices recovered in September, Global Telemetrics have now recovered just over £28m worth of vehicles for 2022.
It comes as no surprise that Range Rovers sit on top of the tree for September recoveries, 60% of vehicles recovered this month were either a Land Rover or Range Rover.
September has seen a busy month for luxury vehicles recovered with a Rolls Royce Ghost, Rolls Royce Cullinan and a Lamborghini Huracan all recovered this month totalling £800k worth of recovered value.
Other notable highlights this month included a Timberwolf Wood Chipper, the story of which can be found here: https://smartrack.uk.net/theft-case-study-timberwolf-wood-chipper-recovered/
Also recovered were an Alfa Romeo Giulia V6 BiTurbo that led to the recovery of 7 vehicles in total (which will be featured in an upcoming blog), A Kubota RTV, A Jaguar F-Type, stolen while the customer watched Manchester United vs Arsenal, and some of the regular suspects in Audi, Mercedes and Motorhomes.
London, The West Midlands, Yorkshire and Lancashire have all been targeted this month, with Yorkshire now becoming our second top location for recoveries so far this year.

This February, Global Telemetrics recovered £2.5m worth of vehicles. This is £500k more than February of 2022, and £800k more than February of 2021, highlighting the continuing rising trend in vehicle theft across the UK.
We remain on course to hit our projected recovery total of over £40m worth of vehicles by year-end 2023, compared with £38.6m worth of vehicles recovered in 2022.
Staycations are becoming ever-popular, and with spring around the corner, motorhomes and caravans across the country will soon be out on the roads again. Whilst these home-from-homes continue to gain demand, it will unfortunately lead to a likely rise in stolen vehicles.
In 2022, Global Telemetrics were responsible for the recovery of £38.6m worth of vehicles. Fiat Ducato motorhomes were the 3rd highest recovered vehicle of the year, making up for over £1m of recoveries. Other motorhome and Caravan brands such as Auto-Trail, Bailey and Adria also appeared on the list, accounting for almost £800k of recoveries.
Global Telemetrics has had a kick start to the year, with £3.4m worth of vehicles recovered during January alone.
At this rate, we are projected to recover over £40m worth of vehicles by year-end 2023, compared with the £38.6m worth of vehicles we recovered in 2022.
