The sun has been shining, the heat has been unbearable in places, droughts and hosepipe bans are currently in force but one thing remains ever constant: The Global Telemetrics team will be out whatever the conditions recovering vehicles.
July sticks to the pattern we have seen all year with an increase from 2021. Last July £1.8m of vehicles were recovered, this July has seen just under £2m worth of vehicles recovered for our customers, meaning we are now just £2.1m under the total of 2021 as a whole.
As always Land Rover / Range Rover continues to dominate the recovery totals, with £1.2m of recoveries this month being from the popular vehicle. This equates to 43% of all recoveries for July being one of these models.
Motorhome and Caravan recoveries as a collective take 2nd place this month. With the beautiful weather the demand for these vehicles is higher. One such recovery led our repatriations team to one of our 2 chop shop finds this month. As described here: https://smartrack.uk.net/caravan_tracking_device_helps_police_locate_more_than_one_vehicle_4_vehicles_found/ Recovery of this caravan led police to recover three other stolen vehicles at the scene.
Taking the final 3 spots this month for the top 5 are serial offenders, BMW, Audi and Mercedes with recoveries totalling £242,000 of vehicles.
As mentioned previously, this month saw the discovery and end of two chop shops. As well as the caravan theft which saw the recovery of 4 vehicles, during one of our Land Rover thefts in Birmingham our repatriations team were able to recover 8 vehicles in total. Meaning July was a lot more successful for recoveries than our customer valued totals suggest!

Hotspots for July continue as previously with London and the West Midlands dominating the recovery list.
