Car theft is a real threat to all of us, but if it doesn’t concern you, you probably don’t own a car or already own a vehicle fitted with a Thatcham tracking device, or at least one that’s Thatcham-approved!
Who are Thatcham?
When browsing for vehicle trackers, you’ll see and hear a lot about Thatcham. It’s a term that relates to Thatcham Research, a not-for-profit organisation established by the motor insurance industry way back in 1969. Their remit was simple; to reduce the cost of motor insurance claims whilst upholding safety standards.
Over the years, they have continually developed numerous standards and criteria that vehicle security products must meet to be granted ‘Thatcham-Approved’ status. The highest accolade granted to trackers, alarms and other security devices in 1992.
Thatcham Approved Trackers
Buying a tracker that meets Thatcham’s stringent testing procedures means that you know you’re getting a device that has been subjected to the highest safety testing available. It’s going to be the best tracking device you can buy.
This is not only great news for your vehicle, but gives you a real sense of satisfaction that you and your car, van, motorbike or motorhome are in the best hands, even when they’re in the worst.
The Best Thatcham Trackers You can Buy
Having a Thatcham-approved tracker on your vehicle gives you peace of mind because, should the worst happen, you’re much more likely to be able to get the vehicle back again, even if it crosses borders.
This is because of the inherent technology within the device and the stringent criteria it needs to meet. Rest assured that Thatcham have put the device through its paces in numerous tests to create something you can rely on and something we can sell with confidence.
The even better news is that every single car tracker we sell in our online store is Thatcham approved. We believe that you deserve the best when it comes to car security and that’s why we only stock the best, from the SmarTrack Protector Pro Global right up to the Tracker S5 Plus.
