Skytag GPS set new record for recovery of stolen vehicle.
In the early hours of Wednesday the 13th October a Land Rover Defender in the Greater Manchester area set a new Skytag record by being recovered in just 12 minutes.
The Land Rover Defender was reported stolen to Skytag at 02:47am and Oldham and Manchester Police were alongside the vehicle at 02:59am.
Guy Topsom Managing Director of Skytag commented. “We would like to thank Greater Manchester Police for their outstanding assistance and response to this theft. Without Skytag and the co-operation of the officers on the ground it could have been just another unsolved and un-recovered theft, however our operator was able to pinpoint the location to within 5 metres and quickly guide the police to the vehicles location.”
“We pride ourselves on our 100% recovery record and believe that this new 12 minute record will be very difficult to beat, but we will keep trying!!”
The client purchased the Skytag unit after reading an article & reader offer in a leading Land Rover Magazine.
The vehicle owner was ecstatic with recovering his vehicle so quickly and with very little damage. “I have had a vehicle stolen previously, so for the price of a couple of pints a month this was the ideal solution. I am so pleased to have read the article and taken advantage of the offer. Skytag is an excellent product and has given me peace of mind and now superb results.”
Skytag always recommend leaving the recovery of stolen vehicles to the appropriate authorities as attempting to prevent or recover your property can result in injury.
