With our van tracker device you can see, at all times, where all of your fleet vehicles are and if any are where they shouldn’t be.

Nowadays, vehicle theft rates keep hitting record numbers. Given the sophisticated nature of present theft protection technology, it’s hard to think thieves are still stealing cars in high numbers. Such statistics mean you have to double down on anti-theft van trackers for your fleet.
Vehicle theft poses more problems than just the loss of vehicles. Below, we explore problems that come with having your fleet car stolen.
Here are just a few things you could avoid if you protect your fleet with van trackers:
The first problem associated with vehicle theft is the money you have to spend in the aftermath. You will have to replace the vehicle which is expensive. If assets are stolen with the vehicle, your financial problem worsens because you have to replace the stolen cargo too.
Vehicle theft can cause you to lose business income. The lack of transportation may force a business to cancel jobs or lose out on profitable projects. Installing van trackers can prevent this experience.
Vehicle theft can reduce the productivity of employees: for example, you may spend time trying to prepare your insurance claim — time you could have put to more productive activities.
Moreover, with vehicles stolen, employees cannot move to work sites or make deliveries. Not protecting your fleet with van trackers could affect your company’s bottom line, since you still have to pay for employees, even when their vans have been stolen.
Disruption to Operations
Employees will have to prepare various documents including logbooks, valuations, receipts, etc., just to process an insurance claim. In addition, changing the company’s service schedule may be inevitable — especially if there are no vehicles to serve as temporary replacements. Even if you have replacement vehicles, the drivers may have to work longer, affecting work hours. You can prevent loss of productivity and disruptions if your vehicles have van trackers installed.
Beyond the financial and operation losses, not protecting your fleet with van trackers can lead to the following:
Reduced Customer Satisfaction
If the vehicle was stolen while making a delivery, you will face complaints from customers who ordered for it. The theft will clearly inconvenience the customers to whom the same van was supposed to deliver goods in the future.
Their anger may increase if they have to wait for some time before you can refund them for the missing goods. Of course, this could be avoided if a van tracker were installed, your assets tracked and the thief’s location reported to the authorities.
Imagine investing your money into vehicles to boost your business’s profits only to have them stolen: that is sure to make any company founder stressed and worried for days. And that’s the more reason to invest in reliable van trackers to prevent theft, protect your investment, and enhance business success.
Whilst van trackers are essential in keeping your vans protected from thievery, they can also be used to ensure your vans are used fairly by employees.
Many business owners have bought company vans, and fuel, themselves. They often want to use van trackers to ensure their vans are not being used for excessive personal mileage, for example.
Allun Wright, the founder of Wright’s Security Services, suspected that some of his employees were using his vans unfairly. Specifically, Kevin thought his vans were being used excessively for personal miles.
He therefore installed Vimcar’s van trackers:
“We were dealing with vehicle misuse within our fleet. That’s now been solved! Fleet Geo allowed me to monitor drivers’ speeds and distances: I can see if there have been any discrepancies with employees logging in their working times.”
