If they want it bad enough, they are going to get it. A determined and usually the professional thief knows all the tricks. A motorcycle can be picked up by two and put in a van. A car can be towed or pushed. A trailer can be hooked up and gone. My point is, theft prevention is important and works in most cases, but the best defense is sometimes something the crooks can’t see. As an auto theft investigator since 1998, my first choice in theft protection is GPS tracking. Not the type that is installed by a technician at the car alarm store, definitely not a factory system like OnStar which is the first thing disconnected by the pros. A small GPS tracker, that alerts you when your property is moving and you hide is what I use first.
I’ve been using different forms of GPS trackers since 2003, one of my favorites is the Spot Trace Anti-Theft Tracking Device.
The Spot Trace includes all the features I know are a must.
- Text & Email Alerts When Moving
- Track with Included Smartphone App
- Easy to Hide and Durable
- Battery Powered
- Easily Transferable Between Assets; cars, motorcycles, boats, trailers, etc.
- Low purchase cost and yearly service fee.
The moment your car, truck, bike, or trailer is stolen you’re going to get a text alerts that it’s moving. You can then immediately call the police and report it stolen. Using the Spot GPS App you can then track your vehicle and locate it. Speed is everything in theft investigations. The sooner you get it back, the less damage done.
