THE 911TRACKER DIFFERENCE 

1. Gives you the location of your vehicle allowing you to recover it.

2. Saves you money because it lowers your car insurance. If you parked your car for a period of time you will receive notification if your vehicle is moved or if the ignition is turned on.

3. This is perfect for when parking the airport, auto body shop or valet. When 911 has been notified your tracker will give the current latitude/longitude, speed and where the vehicle is heading and is detected by E-911.

4. The operator can see a map of where the car is and is often more precise than E-911. The 911Tracker has a back up battery so if the thief cuts the wires you are still protected

What To Do AFTER A Car Theft

THINK BEFORE YOU ACT: Is your car actually stolen or just towed, misplaced or even worse repossessed. Before calling 911 just take a moment to consider these other options because the last thing you want to do is involve the police unnecessarily.

CALL 911: So you’ve taken the time to think things through and realize that YES your vehicle has been stolen. The first thing you should do is call 911, and have a police report filed.

KEEP EXTRA INSURANCE CARDS: Most times your VIN number and registration are in the vehicle that has been stolen. Make copies of your registration and insurance cards and have them in your wallet so you have all the information you need when talking to the police.

BE TECH SAVVY: Vehicle manufacturer security systems may not be enough to completely keep your vehicle safe. Once upon a time LoJack was the only non manufacturer security system…..not anymore. Check out how the T3 Recovery Device works effectively.

CONNECT WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY: The police was called and report has been filed, now it’s time to connect with your insurance company. When connecting with your insurance company you are protecting yourself. Yes, that right! Your stolen vehicle could be used to cause harm or damage after the theft. Make sure you give your agent detailed information of all personal items in your vehicle.

CONNECT WITH LENDER:  If your car is leased or financed, you should also call the lender that you used to purchase the vehicle.

According to the NHTSA 40% to 50% of stolen cars are a direct result of owner mistakes. Make sure you are making smart choices at all times which will reduce your chances of car theft.

Has your vehicle been stolen before? What tips can you share to help others in the future? Don’t forget to check out our different types of recovery devices, the T3 and S4 Recovery Devices. These will not only help secure your vehicle but make recovery time less if your vehicle is stolen. EVERY MINUTE MATTERS!

Feeling lucky? Enter in our S4 Tracker Giveaway, worth $300! 911Tracker will pick 2 winners on November 15, 2014. GOOD LUCK!

 

 

911Tracker Kickstarter Campaign and GIVEAWAY

VTS_01_1Car owners shouldn’t underestimate the value and benefit of vehicle anti-theft devices. Car security systems are a deterrent for criminals and lower the risk of theft. If you think the build in car security system will work as a deterrent then you might be disappointed. Car alarms do not draw the attention the way they used to. Most of the time we find it more annoying than anything else. Nearly half of the vehicles (with the normal car alarm) stolen are never recovered, and those recovered are almost always damaged or completely destroyed.  We believe that…..EVERY MINUTE COUNTS! This is the reason that purchasing a car tracking device like the 911Tracker benefits car owners by giving them peace of mind that their car is really secure.

At 911Tracker we are continually looking for new ways to share the benefits of the T3 Device. We have teamed up with Kickstarter to help us gain more exposure so that we can continue to produce the T3 Device, expand marketing and distribution channels and develop new Tracker products that will provide safety and security to owners and their families.

T3 is different because you are in charge!

* T3 follows instructions that you text from your phone.

* T3 alerts you if your car has an emergency

* You call the T3 to connect a 3-way call to the 911-Operator located close to your car.

* You talk directly to police within seconds of the emergency – saving you time and money

* LoJack® doesn’t do this. OnStar® doesn’t do this. No other anti-theft system can do this.

Keeping Families Safe

During the Kickstarter campaign we will offer many rewards to our backers, even if you donate just $5. To make things more exciting we are doing a GIVEAWAY for those that want to help us promote our kickstarter campaign. All you need to do is share a Facebook, Google+ or Twitter post with your own communities, tagging 911Tracker, using the Kickstarter URL http://bit.ly/911KSC and use the hashtag #911Kickstarter.

Benefits of a GPS Tracking Device for Small Business Vehicles

GPS Tracking Small Business LogoChances are if you are a small business owner you are focused on everyday issues that you haven’t given much thought of protecting your company vehicles from theft, until one of those vehicles are stolen. When something like that happens the police often has little to offer other than taking your information and hope something comes up.

If you have a GPS theft recovery system for your small business vehicles then you can protect your investment and then have a REAL chance to recover your vehicle. Here are some main reasons why small business owners with company vehicles need to carefully consider a GPS theft recovery system.

Faster Recovery Time – Without a GPS tracking system the chance of finding a stolen vehicle is very slim and if you did finally recover it, there could be damage which would cost your business greatly. With a tracking system like the 911Tracker you would get a text as soon as your vehicle was moved and then you can connect with the authorities to give them the exact location of your vehicle so it can recovered within a short period of time.

Protects Equipment – When a personal vehicle is stolen chances are you don’t have many other valuables in the car. With a small business vehicle you could have thousands of dollars worth of tools and equipment that could be stolen too. Therefore you are not just losing a vehicle but important materials that you need to run your business.

Monitor Drivers – When you install a vehicle tracking device you can track your company vehicles to make sure your employees are using the vehicles for authorized projects, prevent employees from logging overtime for work that they didn’t do, stop employees from taking long lunch breaks, log activity when employees leave a job early.

Reduce Insurance Costs – Many insurance companies give discounts up to 35% for companies that have their company vehicles equipped with a GPS tracking device.

A vehicle is stolen every 33 seconds, don’t let your company vehicle be next. What have you don’t already to make sure your equipment and vehicle are safe at all times?

***** The 911Tracker can save your company money and gives you peace of mind that your vehicle and company equipment is safe at all times. Learn more HERE

Classic Car Theft on the Rise

classic car protectionClassic Car theft is on the rise, so much so that the police created a network to help recover these stolen vehicles.  Stolen classic cars are happening throughout the United States but is more prevalent in Southern California.

Classic cars are targeted because they are easy to sell overseas. People would pop them in containers and ship them overseas and a lot of them were a “for order situation”.  Classic cars are worth much more than the average new vehicle and most times the classic car is one of a kind.

Most of the time when a classic call is stolen it’s never found because of the lacking built in security system that newer cars have.  For that reason classic cars are far more difficult to track.

There are a few things you can do to protect your classic vehicle from being stolen.

Classic Car Protection

Keep Verifiable Records – Be sure the VIN and title information match that of your car.  Something like this that is overlooked, could create huge problems later if your vehicle is ever stolen, and law enforcement is attempting to recover it.

Be Smart At Car Shows – When visiting car shows, or even taking your classic car out for a spin around the neighborhood, make it a habit to check your rear view mirror!  Professional car thieves actually go to these events in search of their next target.

Be Careful When Selling – When selling your classic car be wary of the payment method, 150 cashier’s checks is not the best way to except payment because they could be bogus. The best payment options would be wire transfer.

Trust You Mechanic –   If you take your classic vehicle for restoration to a body shop, or mechanic make sure they have a good security system so your vehicle is protected at all times.

Embrace Technology – Since classic cars do not have built in security system you need to install something that you feel will protect your vehicle while not in use. There are many choices to choose from especially our own T3 Tracker. You can now save when purchasing a tracker which saves you $95.
