If Your Car Has A Hidden GPS Tracker We WILL Find It
Today's modern GPS trackers have become far more widely available in just the last few years. In the past we used to get perhaps a dozen calls a month from clients who suspect their car was being tracked.
Now, we get four to six such cases per week on average, and 80% of the time, we find a device usually placed there not by the Police, but by a jealous partner/ ex-lover, or in some cases a commercial competitor.
Most hidden car tracker systems are discrete and don't interfere with your vehicles electronics. So they shouldn't affect your indicators, radio, ignition system or other electrical equipment. The devices are purposely engineered so as to not be detectable by causing changes in the vehicle's behaviour.
If you suspect your car is being tracked and followed, and need a car tracker detection service on the car, contact us for a professional comprehensive bug sweep service.

Need Your Car Checking To Detect A Tracker?
There are many versions of covert GPS vehicle trackers available to buy online, but as is the case with most things, you get what you pay for.
The cheaper models of car trackers are unreliable, inaccurate and difficult to control. However GPS tracking devices that cost several hundreds of pounds are extremely effective, compact and an invaluable tool in finding out where someone is or has been.
These more advanced tracking units are able to be controlled via a laptop, PC or smart phone app and allow the user to gather all sorts of information concerning the vehicles behaviour. The car being tracked remains under watch 24 hours a day!
Searching for the presence of a vehicle tracker is time consuming and detailed. We use the latest technology to carry out an electronic bug sweep of a car and then examine areas of the vehicle where an indication of a device is.
Depending on the type of tracker used, it can be attached to the bodywork of the vehicle either externally or if the user has access to the vehicle secreted inside, or even behind the dashboard and control panel cluster.
With most modern cars and vehicles, there are numerous places for a GPS tracker the size of a match box to be fitted.
If you believe your car is bugged or your car is being tracked and someone has attached or fitted a tracker to your car, van, lorry or vehicle, contact us to arrange a detailed search.
We can sweep your car for a hidden tracker and find remove if required. Our GPS car tracker detection service is done throughout the UK, and can take 2 - 3 hours to complete, and are carried discreetly at a safe location convenient to you.

Hidden Car Tracker – Their Use, Who Uses Them And What Can Be Done to Find Them?
Tracking devices on cars have been around for a while now. In most cases they are used for legitimate purposes, such as employee monitoring, health and safety compliance, asset security and vehicle management.
The technology behind trackers like most electronic devices has moved on significantly. Nowadays, not only can they pinpoint the actual position of the car, but they can also tell the users of the tracking device it’s speed, direction of travel, fuel economy, travel history and in some cases have the capability of stopping the vehicle from moving.
Most trackers come with an app that can be controlled from a desktop, tablet, or mobile smart phone. From their device of choice, they can establish if the tracker ‘s battery is low and requires charging, set the reporting of its activity from real-time to any other parameters such as every 10 minutes, 5 minutes etc. The GPS tracker can also be set to notify the user if it travels towards a particular region or location.
This capability is known as geo-fencing.
For example, if the car with the tracker fitted is based in Leicester, and the user suspects it travels regularly to Birmingham and wants to be alerted when the car travels in that direction the app will create a boundary around Leicester so when the vehicle exits this electronic boundary the app alerts the user so they can monitor or follow the car to its destination.
The Covert hidden GPS trackers that we search for on clients’ cars, have exactly the same capabilities as these tracking devices.
The majority of tracking devices that we detect are easily purchased from the likes of Amazon or the Tracker shop.
With a little imagination these tracking bugs can be hidden without too much effort.
Tracking devices can be hidden in all manner of locations within or on the outside of a car.
This is why detecting a tracking device is a time-consuming job, usually taking approximately 2 hours to detect the tracker and remove it. There are now many types of car tracker including those that are disguised to look like relays, fuses and other electronic elements of the car.
A spying device on a car is a little more challenging to locate as they are usually planted within the dashboard, roof lining or door cards in the cabin area of the vehicle.
Who needs a car tracker detection service?
A car tracker is easily purchased off the internet. There are no regulations who can buy one or use on. Simply take delivery of the tracker and choose what vehicle you want to hide it on, with or without the owners permission.
But who is buying a car tracker to hide on a car?
We have been carrying out our car tracker detection service for over 10 years and believe we have seen all scenarios where a person has fitted a car tracking device.
The most common individual is the suspicious husband or wife who believes their partner having an affair. In these cases, when it is the wife or girlfriend who is suspicious, they often use the services of a private investigator who is paid to place a tracker on a car and monitor the movements of the vehicle for a set price.
When it is the male partner, they will hide the tracker on the car themselves and because they have access to the inside of the car, they try to be clever by wiring the tracker into the vehicles electrics.
#1. Spying on a partner is the most common reason for us to carry out a car tracker detection service.
Another situation where a client feels their car is bugged is from a stalker or someone causing harassment to the client. These people tend to use a car tracker that is fitted to the underside of the car’s bodywork as they have limited access to the vehicle’s internal parts.
Over the past 15 years we have carried out hundreds of car tracker sweeps and found tracking bugs in some very strange places including the engine bay, exhaust pipe, inside the alloy and even on the front grill, (disguised as front facing camera).
#2. Stalkers spying and causing harassment is another top reason why we provide a car tracker detection service.
We have lost count the number of times we have carried out a car tracker detection service on a client’s car because of a family dispute.
One of the most common reasons is because a member of the family suspects that a parent or sibling is doing something against the families wishes. This can cause suspicion, leading to a family member planting a tracker on the car to establish where they are going and who they are seeing.
Although it isn’t necessary illegal to track someone’s car, (unless it causes harassment) it is considered an invasion of a person’s privacy. Trying to find a hidden car tracker yourself is not advised as you may not understand what the car tracker looks like.
#3. A popular motive for a car tracker detection service is for a family member planting a covert gps tracker on the car.
Our tracking device detection service on cars does not simply look for the types of trackers that can be purchased off the internet. We understand that there are surveillance experts and IT geeks who are very familiar with how to construct, adapt and use GPS trackers for their own sinister purposes.
That’s why our car bug sweep is meticulous and detailed. We use the very best technology and equipment to detect the most advanced electronic car tracker. Whether it’s been fitted by the Police, security services, private investigator or amateur, our expertise and equipment will find it and remove it.
It is this attention to detail and approach, which ensures we are able to find and detect ALL car trackers. The search for a tracker is comprehensive and methodical. Everything is checked, inside and outside.
#4. When the matter is so delicate and potentially life threatening, the bug sweep of a car for someone who is being stalked and harassed should be carried out by a professional bug sweep company such as ourselves.
We are able to provide expert evidence of the electronic detection method carried out, what we used to detect a tracker or spy bug, and how we preserved it for evidence and a potential criminal court case.
To be arrested and investigated for a matter you feel you are innocent of can be life changing and extremely stressful. If the matter is considered serious enough, the Police have various methods of obtaining the evidence they need to prosecute you.
One of these methods is to bug your car.
Intelligence and information can be obtained and used from a hidden covert car bug or listening device planted in your car can be used in a court of law against you.
There are many high-profile cases where the use of Police bugging a suspect’s car has been revealed.
We have carried out a significant number of house car bug sweeps where the Police have seized and searched for many hours, making the client suspect they may have planted a surveillance device in their car.
To live with the thought hanging over you that the Police have secretly bugged your car, creates stress and anxiety, particularly when you know you have done nothing wrong.
#5. We have detected many electronic surveillance devices in cars whereby the client has been recently stopped or arrested by the Police. Believing you are under surveillance by the authorities is reason number 5 why we carry out our bug sweep services on cars and vehicles.
Why Should I Have A Bug Sweep On My Car?
Simple answer: You Do Not Want To Be Followed or Spied On.
To live with the thought that there is someone you may know or not that is listening to your conversations or watching where you are going in your car is very worrying.
