11 Mar: Theft Case Study: Fiat Ducato Autotrail Motorhome

As we rapidly approach the spring, Global Telemetrics sees somewhat of an awakening happening with our customers’ vehicles. Motorhomes and Caravans that had previously been tucked up in storage for the winter all start to appear once again on our roads as they head back to customers’ homes or off on their adventures. 

Sadly, this also means we see a rise in theft numbers for this type of vehicle. This was the case in February where we had a theft and recovery of a Fiat Ducato Autotrail Motorhome in the London area.

16 Dec: Tips to keep your vehicle safe

A Thatcham-approved tracking device can alert you to potential vehicle tampering almost immediately. all Global Telemetrics tracking devices will alert the driver of battery disconnection and vehicle towing, and some higher level device also include alerts should the vehicle be driven by an unauthorised driver. With the addition of geofence security, a tracking device can provide notification of a theft and our repatriation teams can be mobilised within minutes to hopefully recover the stolen vehicle.
