For most of us our personal vehicle is an expensive asset and the last thing we need is to find out that our vehicle has been abused in the hands of someone else.
GPS vehicle trackers can alert you if your vehicle is moved from a location, especially if valet parking, a mechanic or someone else has been left to care for it.
GPS vehicle trackers monitor your vehicle when valet parking
Have you ever suspected that the valet parking you use has taken your vehicle for a joy ride while you were shopping, dining or checking in for the night at a hotel?

With a GPS vehicle tracker installed in your vehicle you will be able to monitor its location from the convenience of your mobile device when you choose to leave it with valet parking.
GPS vehicle trackers also use geo-fencing technology that establishes a perimeter around your drop off point at the valet. If the GPS vehicle tracker in your vehicle measures a change in location outside the set geofence, then you will receive that notification. You can then continue to track your vehicle and contact the valet service manager for them to explain why your vehicle is being driven.
If necessary, providing the tracker is wired in this way, you can even remotely disable the vehicle preventing it from being driven any further.
Check if mechanics are joyriding in your vehicle
Servicing your vehicle is a necessary requirement to keep it in the good mechanical condition but joy-riding by the mechanic is not.
You have probably heard the stories of mechanics getting speeding fines in vehicles left in their care.
When taking your vehicle for service an installed GPS vehicle tracker will ensure that your vehicle stays at the service department and does not take any unscheduled trips. Or, you can find out beforehand if the mechanic plans a drive test after the service.
Our vehicles are our valuable assets and we do not want them abused by people that we have left them with.
Installing a GPS vehicle tracker will give you the means to track your vehicle when you cannot be there.
