GPS Trackers can’t stop Vehicle Theft

GPS trackers have become popular for fleet vehicle tracking and monitoring, but they are ineffective at preventing theft.

See the savings. The Ravelco Anti-Theft Device easily pays for itself many times over. See how Ravelco protects Rescue Rooter’s fleet to save them headaches and money.

Anti-theft protection for your fleet vehicles

Thieves have become so brazen that trucks are stolen inside locked shops and secured yards. Security cameras, GPS trackers, and alarms won’t stop a determined thief.

Wide Range of Fleet Vehicle Protection

The Ravelco Anti Theft Device can protect a wide range of fleet vehicles, including vans, trucks, and construction equipment. It is a versatile solution that can be adapted to the needs of any fleet.

Trusted by Industry Leaders

Industry leaders trust the Ravelco Anti Theft Device in the fleet management sector. Companies like Roto-Rooter, Rescue Rooter, and Therma use Ravelco to protect their valuable assets. These endorsements from reputable companies speak to the effectiveness and reliability of the Ravelco system.

Unmatched Track Record

The Ravelco Anti Theft Device has an unmatched track record. It has never been defeated, and it has been installed in over 5 million vehicles worldwide. This success rate gives fleet operators peace of mind, knowing that a proven and unbeatable security system protects their vehicles.

Better Investment for Fleet Operators

GPS trackers are designed to find the vehicle, not prevent a thief from hotwiring it. When a thief starts the vehicle, they will look for a GPS device, which will be easily found and disabled. With a Ravelco installed, they aren’t driving the vehicle away in the first place, so it stays right where you parked it.

Investing in the Ravelco system offers superior protection against theft and eliminates the need for costly vehicle recovery efforts and potential damages caused by theft. By preventing theft from happening altogether, fleet operators can avoid the financial and operational setbacks associated with vehicle theft.

Instant ROI

Additionally, fleet managers can expect to see a significant return on their investment with the Ravelco Anti-Theft Device, often within the first month of implementation. The proactive nature of the device ensures that theft is prevented, eliminating the associated costs and disruptions that arise from vehicle theft. Fleet operators can avoid the financial burden of vehicle recovery, repairs, and potential loss of business due to stolen assets. By safeguarding their fleet with the Ravelco system, fleet managers can allocate their resources more efficiently, focus on core operations, and experience a swift return on their investment.


When it comes to preventing fleet vehicle theft, relying solely on a GPS tracker is insufficient. While a GPS tracker may assist in locating stolen vehicles, it does not actively prevent theft. The Ravelco Anti Theft device stands out as the only choice for fleet operators looking for a robust and reliable security solution. With its proven track record, a wide range of vehicle protection, and reputation for unmatched security, the Ravelco system provides the peace of mind that fleet operators need.

GPS trackers are useless in preventing truck theft or identifying suspects. Businesses just recover what the thieves don’t want.

How a thief defeats a GPS tracker


  • A thief hotwires a truck in less than 60 seconds to get it started.
  • They drive it away to a close but remote location, usually less than 2 miles from where the vehicle was stolen. They are just after the tools.
  • They have time to break into the cargo area and take the valuable tools and equipment they can quickly sell.
  • They are done and long gone before a GPS can locate the vehicle. All that is left is a damaged vehicle and what they didn’t want. 
Your tools will be gone, your business interrupted, customers upset, and your fleet vehicles damaged. 

The Ravelco Anti Theft Device: A Superior Choice

  • The Ravelco Anti Theft Device is a superior choice for fleet operators who want to prevent vehicle theft. It is a proactive solution that actively deters and impedes theft.
  • The Ravelco device works by disabling the engine when the key chain-sized plug is removed. This simple action makes it impossible for thieves to start the vehicle, even if they have access to the keys.

In addition to its theft prevention capabilities, the Ravelco device is also easy to use and install. The plug can be easily inserted and removed, and the device can be installed in a hidden location under the dash. This makes it difficult for thieves to locate and disable the device.

These companies trust us to protect their fleet vehicles from theft. 
We can protect yours too.

“In one year we lost 13 vehicles to thieves, with no end to the thefts in sight. We got the vans back, but not the tools, costing the company over $250,000 per year. We tried alarms, clubs, locks, GPS. Nothing worked. Until we installed the Ravelco Anti-Theft Device. Since then, we haven’t lost a single vehicle protected with a Ravelco, and there have been over 30 attempts. We put them on every single vehicle we don’t want to be stolen. In 5 years, it’s saved the company over $600,000.”
