If Your Vehicle is Stolen, You Are Covered
When your vehicle is reported stolen, we spring into action and use GPS Satellites and numerous Cell Phone towers, (in the vicinity of your vehicle), to get an exact location. We then contact the local authorities and assist them with Real Time Location to find your vehicle.
The FBI reports there were an estimated 773,139 motor vehicle thefts nationwide in 2017.
Industry observers caution that thieves constantly devise new and sophisticated means of stealing autos. Tactics include acquiring smart keys, which eliminated hot-wiring to steal cars; switching vehicle identification numbers; and using stolen identities to secure loans for expensive vehicles.
According to the FBI, a motor vehicle is stolen in the United States every 40.9 seconds.
Follow the Money
Beyond the emotional stress and disruption to your daily and work related activities, there are significant financial costs that you may incur if your vehicle is stolen.
According to the FBI, although 75% of respondents know that there are costs associated with vehicle theft in addition to paying the insurance deductible and the cost of replacing the vehicle that are not covered by insurance, virtually none knew that there are additional costs such as insurance premium increases, the cost of time spent dealing with police, vehicle rental costs, and the cost of time off from work.

The Types of Locations at Highest Risk
Living in urban and higher crime areas has an impact on your risk of being a victim of auto theft. Port and border cities continue to be boomtowns for the auto theft business. Of the top 25 metro areas in the nation for vehicle theft, nearly half are ports or communities with easy access to borders (*National Insurance Crime Bureau, or NICB). The NICB study compares the auto theft rates per 100,000 population in 380 metro areas.
City-by-city differences in auto buying habits are reflected in the preferences of auto thieves. For example, American vehicles tend to be the auto thief’s vehicles of choice in Detroit and Chicago; pickups are popular in Albuquerque, Phoenix and Houston; and Japanese models lead the most commonly stolen list in Los Angeles.
Insurance Discounts that Matter
We all like to save money, and installing an Apex Protect GPS unit on your vehicle, is likely to get you a discount on your vehicle insurance.
According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, eleven states: Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rode Island, and Texas have regulations that require insurers to provide vehicle owners with discounts on the base rates for comprehensive insurance for vehicle locating and monitoring GPS devices. In the majority of other states, many insurers offer these discounts or are encouraged to offer them. When you notify your auto insurance company, be sure to tell your agent that you have a GPS Class I Monitoring Device that assists police with stolen vehicle recovery. Make sure they know that, in the event of a theft, your device comes with a 24/7/365 toll free stolen vehicle recovery assistant that will communicate directly with police to ensure rapid recovery of your stolen vehicle.
