Protect your Sprinter against catalyst converter theft from just £94.50 + Vat (Fitted price of £115.00 + VAT)
Thefts of catalytic converters have more than doubled in the past three years.
Almost 25,000 thefts were reported to police forces across the UK between 2010 and the first half of this year. In many cases they are sold on for as little as £10 but the cost to your business could be £2,000, plus the cost of downtime. Taller vehicles, especially vans, are often more vulnerable as their converters are more accessible.
Steps you can take to protect yourself include:
• Parking in a garage or a well-lit area, or in a location that restricts access to the underside of your van
• Preventing access to high vehicles by parking others with lower ground clearance around them
• Installing CCTV and putting up warning notices nearby. It could cost you less than replacing a catalytic converter
• If your Sprinter was registered prior to September 2012 we can etch your catalytic converter for free.
But for the best possible protection, contact us to learn more about the range of Catalytic Converter protection devices available. As part of this range, the Catloc Security Device protects your vehicle's catalytic converter by securing a specially-created metal plate on to the underside of your vehicle using tamper-proof fixings.
If you require further protection, the Thatcham-approved ProCatt alarm activates if the exhaust, engine or battery are tampered with or the catalytic converter is unbolted. The ProCatt has an additional deterrent by flashing when the alarm is on and it will shine continually to warn the driver when the vehicle has been tampered with.
