Hi New Member, new Jeep


Recommended Posts

Just a word of caution on vehicle trackers. 

The cheap ones you buy on ebay are based on mobile phone technology and use GPS tracking. A lot of the more sophisticated car thieves now have GPS scramblers/blockers that will stop you being able to track your vehicle..

There are companies out there that use both GPS and VHF tracking as well, may cost a bit more but worth looking at

These guys are good, I had a mate who bought a used caravan, had it stolen from his drive, the police then told him to check with these guys to see if it had had a tracking device on it. He called them, they checked, re-activated the tracker and managed to recover it for a relatively small fee..

I’ve had a tracker before. It was very good. Had a little issue though, but nothing bad. I wrote the car off and I was in a bad way. They rang my dad when they couldn’t contact me to say there was abnormal activity (being recovered). They didn’t believe him when he told them so I had to speak to them in my distressed state.

 

i also had contact from them when 2 cars parked so close to the car I couldn’t get in. I let the handbrake off and rolled it back until I could get in. Because the key wasn’t in the car, they thought it was being lifted so rang me instantly. A couple of security questions answered and all was well. I was very happy at the speed they responded. No problem with checking.

there was not a lot of the  body left you might of been able to save the bulk head so the owner asked for a new body it would of been over £5000 to rebuild it not worth it and a gallon of body filler also the body was a ford scripted and the jeep a willys script  so the new body is the correct one happy days
