Vehicle Recovery Statistics You Can’t Ignore
A vehicle is stolen within the United States every 24.6 seconds. Millions of dollars worth of industrial equipment is taken every day. Equipment and vehicle recovery is rare in most parts of the world. Installing GPS tracking devices on every piece of equipment within a fleet or inside of your personal vehicle is your only defense against a vehicle that’s lost for good.
Five Vehicles Thieves Can’t Get Enough Of
Some vehicles attract thieves more than others. Cars and trucks that aren’t equipped with GPS tracking devices are easy targets for car thieves. Owning any of the following vehicles means an almost certain brush with a car thief.
- Chevrolet Tahoe: 5.8 of every 1,000 cars stolen is a Tahoe
- Hummer H2: 6.3 of every 1,000 cars stolen is a Hummer H2
- Nissan Maxima: 6.5 of every 1,000 cars stolen is a Nissan Maxima
- GMC Sierra Crew Cab: 6.7 of every 1,000 cars stolen is a Sierra Crew Cab
- GMC Yukon XL: 6 of every 1,000 cars stolen is a GMC Yukon XL
Once stolen, these vehicles are hardly ever recovered. Vehicle recovery statistics are much higher when vehicles have been equipped with GPS tracking devices.
States that top the Equipment Recovery Loss List
Industrial equipment is not immune to theft. Unfortunately, equipment vehicle recovery in some states is next to impossible. The following states are at the top of the yearly equipment theft list.
- Texas: 1000+
- Florida: 1000 +
- North Carolina: 1000+
- Georgia: 700+
- South Carolina: 600+
While still prevalent, vehicle recovery rates in these states are on the rise due to the installation of thousands of GPS tracking devices. Adding a Rocky Mountain Tracking GPS device to every piece of equipment in your fleet will increase your vehicle recovery odds dramatically.

Repossession experts can take days, weeks, and even months to recover a vehicle. A GPS tracker can find and locate a stolen vehicle within minutes. Your chances at vehicle recovery greatly improve with a GPS tracking device. Many Rocky Mountain Tracking devices also include engine interruption capabilities. GPS tracking devices work when repossession vehicle recovery doesn’t.
