Use asset tracking
- Track the location of important assets remotely
- Choose a secure device to secure your vehicle
There’s nothing worse than searching the area for your car, waiting for the police, and filing an insurance claim for your business. It causes stress and means your drivers are spending less time on the road.
Companies do have one solution that could help find stolen vehicles. Asset tracking uses GPS signals to track the location of your vehicle, among other details. Many businesses use asset tracking to keep an eye on highly valuable assets that are on the move like vehicles, shipping containers, and more.
How asset tracking works
There are a few different types of asset tracking. One of the best types to protect against theft is GPS. The vehicles can be fitted with trackers which automatically signal the location to you, so you can check the car’s location at any time.
Features of asset tracking
Some GPS asset tracking systems can come with additional features at an extra charge. But these extra features are well worth the money to keep an eye on your assets, especially those of high value.
These are some of the features that can give you extra detail to help track down a stolen car:
- Engine usage data
- Unauthorised usage alerts
- Real time travel data
How to use asset tracking against theft
You can hand over the data from your asset tracking system to the police. This will show the police the location of your vehicle. They will then get the vehicle for you.
It is best to hand over the information to the police. Do not attempt to recover the vehicle or confront the vehicle yourself. We pay taxes to the police for a reason—let them do the hard work.
