During the early 1990s, the news was filled with stories of joy-riders stealing cars and the subsequent damage and suffering they were causing. In 1992, the British insurance industry tasked Thatcham with improving vehicle security. Alarms and immobilisers are probably the most effective way of securing your vehicle.
A.G.I. can supply and approve most aftermarket security systems. Cars seldom have full alarms fitted as standard and often owners have not seen the need to fit any form of security. It is these vehicles that are most at risk.
Alarms draw attention to anyone attempting to break into or steal a car. There are various models available that we can install, from those that detect when a door is opened or detect motion within the vehicle, to those that feature shock sensors which are activated if someone hits the car. There are even alarms specifically for convertibles.
Immobilisers, as their name suggests, render the vehicle un-driveable, either by physically breaking the ignition circuit or by linking in with the engine computer.
