GPS Vehicle Tracking

The use of discreet GPS vehicle tracking devices allows our team to follow subject’s vehicles from a safe distance without alerting the driver to our presence. The devices also provide pin-point accurate locations in real-time minimising the risk of losing a subject.

Discreet Monitoring

In order to follow a moving subject discreetly and without losing them, the use of GPS vehicle tracking devices is often required. The devices themselves are incredibly small and are attached to a vehicle magnetically, this allows them to be fitted to a discreet location in only a matter of seconds and removed without leaving a mark.

Once the vehicle has been fitted with the device its location will be relayed to our team, the team on the ground monitor the movements through a mobile application whilst the team in the office scrutinise the vehicle’s movements and look for patterns or abnormalities in the routes.

Legality of Vehicle Tracking

Before fitting a vehicle with a device our team always ensure there is ‘Legitimate Interest’ and perform a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) looking at alternative options and the necessity of the device, this ensures that our use of GPS vehicle tracking devices is always legal and that we have taken the least invasive method of surveillance available to us.

Finding Hidden Assets

We offer a number of tracing services and have helped many of our clients discover hidden assets but some investigations require a more bespoke solution. When our client and his business partner decided they were going to part ways it became apparent that one of the partners had being evasive and was not providing accurate information about his assets.

The Maintenance Dispute

Unlike Scotland, in England there is no limit on how long a partner may have to pay maintenance, our client found himself paying a substantial monthly sum to his ex-wife despite having being told by multiple sources that she was working full time and financially stable. We did some research and discovered that the hours she was working didn’t match up with the money she had claimed to be earning.

What Our Clients Said

FAQ

The short answer is yes, the use of GPS vehicle tracking devices is legal providing it is done so correctly and only in situations where justifiable. For the in-depth answer take a look at our blog post – Is Vehicle Tracking Legal?

The first question we are asked whenever discussing vehicle tracking is, will they find the device? We have fitted and removed thousands of vehicle trackers to a huge array of different vehicles so we know exactly where the most suitable and discreet location for the tracker is. 

They are not invisible so it is not impossible to find them however we have had vehicles go into garages for full services, MOT’s and repairs without them being noticed so a brief inspection or routine work would very rarely detect the device.

FAQ

The vehicle tracker itself transmits GPS data over a mobile/data network allowing the information to be accessed in real-time by any member of the team whether that be using a phone, tablet/laptop or sat in the office hundreds of miles away.

There is no fixed time period for how long a vehicle can be tracked for, we will conduct an assessment at the time of fitting and decide what we are trying to achieve to ensure the tracking device is only fitted to the vehicle for as long as necessary.
