The Reading and Leeds Festival has been and gone, the football season is back, Liz is stepping into Boris’ shoes and our vehicle recovery figures continue to rise! 

August has seen almost £2.9m worth of recoveries for this month, meaning that we are now over £24m so far for the year. After 8 months with 4 left to go this has now surpassed last year’s recovered vehicles total for the whole of 2021 which stood at just over £23m.

Regarding August, this year sees a rise of £1m compared to August of 2021, this falls in line with the rest of the year where we are seeing a consistent increase. As the end of the summer approaches and the nights draw in, providing longer cover of darkness this is sure to only increase further. 

Our Top 5 recovered vehicles always includes the same winner for each month, the ever stealable Range Rover. This month equated to 66% of all vehicles recovered this month. 

In second place this month were Mercedes with a variation of models recovered. 

Motorhomes sit in 3rd place for this month. Motorhomes continue to be a target whilst they are out of storage! 

Regular’s BMW, featured in 4th place this month and 5th place sees a Jaguar and Lexus joint effort. 

Our most expensive vehicle recovered this month was a Lamborghini Urus, with the brand new Performante edition just announced, the Urus is always a sought after vehicle, our customers’ worth a whopping £200k was recovered in the same day. 

As with other months London and the West Midlands continue to be hotspots for recoveries this month, recently focusing on our hotspots, Global Telemetrics have launched an awareness campaign to highlight the dangers of keyless theft in line with the launch of new 72 plate registrations being released, more information can be found here: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/special-features/global-telemetrics-highlight-vehicle-thefts-23904759
