Knowing where your vehicle is at all times is one of the best ways to ensure its safety. The easiest way to achieve this is by using a car tracker. At MotorGuard, we stock car trackers from all of the leading car security brands, including Cobra, Meta, and SmarTrac.
A car tracker uses a GPS tracking system to keep tabs on your vehicle wherever it is in the world. In the unfortunate event that a vehicle is stolen, a tracker is the ideal tool to relocate your car and report its location to the police. If you’re looking to upgrade the security measures on your vehicle, then a GPS tracker should always be something that’s on your radar.
Vehicle trackers are also perfect for fleet owners or those who want to keep track of commercial vehicles. Many tracking devices can be connected through a fleet managing interface. This gives the fleet owner a simple overview of the location of all their vehicles, making management an absolute breeze.
Some of these systems may also include a driver recognition feature – to operate a vehicle, the driver will have to be carrying their authorisation card. All of the car trackers we sell are fully insurance approved so that you can be sure you’re covered if you ever need to make a claim.
We have an expert team of mechanics who have plenty of experience fitting car trackers to commercial fleets as well as individual vehicles.
