TRACKER Recovers Stolen Cars Hidden in a Lorry

Two stolen vehicles have been found hidden inside a lorry in Chelmsford, Essex, thanks to the advanced Very High Frequency (VHF) technology used for TRACKER security devices. TRACKER, the UK's number one stolen vehicle recovery company, received a call from a customer in Epping, Essex saying that their car had been stolen and despite the fact the vehicle had already been hidden in a lorry, just one day later it was located and the police were able to make an immediate arrest.

Ben Blair's Mercedes Benz S500 was stolen from Epping, but luckily he had a tracking security device installed in the vehicle so he called TRACKER to activate the unit immediately. Despite the stolen vehicle being hidden inside a container lorry, police still managed to pick up the TRACKER signal and find it in the back of the lorry, as well as another stolen Mercedes. Both the vehicles had false plates, as thieves prepared to sell them on, so a quick recovery was essential.

"TRACKER uses unique VHF technology in its tracking devices and this played a key role in locating these hidden vehicles," explained Stuart Chapman, Police Relationship Manager, TRACKER. "It is unlikely that a GPS signal would have been able to pick up a vehicle inside a lorry, so Mr Blair was very lucky indeed. TRACKER's unique relationship with the UK's 52 police forces also means we are able to maximise the rate of vehicle recovery."

Mr Blair from Blair Group Estates, added: "I am delighted with the service and would recommend TRACKER to anyone. If it wasn't for the TRACKER device being fitted, my car could have been gone for good. It only took one day to locate my car, which is an incredible job, especially considering it was hidden inside a lorry and with false plates already attached. The thieves were obviously in a hurry to sell it on quickly!"

TRACKER stolen vehicle recovery systems work like an electronic homing device. A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several dozen places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief won't even know it's there. Unlike other tracking systems, the device works even if the vehicle is hidden in a garage or in this case a lorry or even if its taken abroad, offering car owners the ultimate in peace of mind should the worst happen.
