According to police reports, thieves are targeting classic cars, with old Minis, classic sports cars and VW Campervans proving to be hot targets. With many stolen cars being broken down for parts, project cars left on driveways are particularly vulnerable.
Classic car owners are understandably cautious when it comes to installing alarm systems and immobilizers. Some devices can be unsightly, even on modern vehicles, so people feel they affect the look of the vehicle. Whilst that might be the case, the appeal of these vehicles for criminals makes it essential to protect them. The MetaTrak Sheild is a covert tracker hidden in one of several places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief won’t even know it’s there.
Classic cars are an easy target for thieves, as they are missing the security features we take for granted on modern vehicles. With police reporting a rise in classic car thefts, it’s more important than ever that enthusiasts take steps to secure their pride and joy.
Classic cars can actually be worth more in parts than as a whole, so a quick recovery is essential. Over 90% of cars fitted with a tracking device are successfully located and returned to owners, usually within 24 hours.
Many classic cars are not for everyday use, and therefore their owners will keep them in storage for much of the time, leaving thieves the perfect opportunity to steal them – sometimes without even using the key, as they can be easily broken in to and hotwired or towed away.
For a very small investment, The MetaTrak Sheild vehicle security system significantly increases the chances of a classic car being found and returned if it’s stolen.
For owners who have spent the time renovating a classic car, as a long-term project, the thought of losing the vehicle is more than just a question of its monetary value. If one is stolen, enthusiasts lose all the time and effort they have put into creating an individual vehicle of their dreams and that’s hard to put a price on.
