Preventing theft on the lot

Our dealership isn't in the best part of town and we have had several issues with vehicle theft in the past 6 months. We have always had some issues, but it seems to be getting worse and worse. We do a good job of locking all vehicles at the close of business each day and the lot is completely secure with blockers.

As a result of all of the theft that we have had, our garage insurance policy is through the roof and the owner is getting more and more nervous that we won't be able to be insured. We have been discussing the possibility of putting some sort of a kill start or a gps tracking device on all of our new and used inventory.

I haven't done much research yet, so I don't really know what way we want to go. I thought I would throw out this post to see if someone out there has a good recommendation. If so, what company or product do you use? I would like to know the cost and how hard it is to install. Also, do you pass the cost on to the customer as a part of a package?

How about hiring a security guard from 9:00pm to 7:00am?

Bryant,If you are still interested in loading your lot, securing your vehicles, reducing your insurance rates, adding safety, security, and peace of mind for the dealer and customers, why not try LoJack? You have everything to gain and so do your customers with a 24 hour money back guarantee of up to $695.00 and $5000.00 if the vehicle is not recovered on the 31st day. If you use any kind of GPS ask the company for a written recovery story (most recent) and are they directly integrated with the local police and crime bureau. This is essential for , fast recovery. Unlike GPS where the installation is always in the same place and car thieves now exactly where the unit is installed. LoJack is covertly installed in many areas of the vehicle and undetected by thieves. To validate our effectiveness, may I suggest calling Victor Fernandez (dealer principal) or Xavier Cortes (gm) at Marysville Ford. Their numbers are (425) 220-4553 (206) 714-2941.I am your Area Business Director and I look forward to meeting you while in UT. Regards, Rod JonesArea Business DirectorOR. WA. UT. WA. 360.903.7301
