Having an immobiliser on your vehicle greatly reduces the chance of it getting stolen and in some states it is compulsory to have an immobiliser fitted on your car when you register it.
The importance of having a car alarm or immobiliser on your vehicle
Vehicle theft is a huge drain on resources, wasting police time and costing insurance companies and car owners a lot of money.
In Queensland alone, more than 7,000 cars are stolen every 12 months, and less than 70% of these are recovered.
By installing a high quality car alarm or immobiliser on your car, you can avoid becoming a statistic. In fact, some insurance companies will offer you a reduced premium if you can prove you’ve had an approved immobiliser fitted.
Ensuring your immobiliser is approved by government standards
By law, you need to have an immobiliser either factory fitted or one that is installed according to Australian standards.
If your immobiliser isn’t fitted properly, and your car is stolen, your insurance may not cover you for the theft.
Make sure you have your system installed by a licenced professional, like GCCEM, otherwise you may not be covered.
