Lock up your Land Rovers as thieves strike


Posted on 27-11-2014

Land Rovers are being targeted by thieves more often than any other make of car, according to insurance broker Adrian Flux.

And the country’s largest specialist broker is urging owners of older Land Rovers in particular to beef up their security measures where possible.

Figures from the last two years reveal that a disproportionately high eight per cent of the 3,185 vehicle thefts reported to the broker were of Land Rovers. Just four models, the 80, 90, 110 and Defender, accounted for a staggering 73 per cent, or 187, of those.

Dan Clark, head of commercial vehicle insurance at Flux, said the high number of Land Rover thefts was largely down to many pre-2007 models possessing little or no Thatcham-rated alarm security, something now commonplace on modern vehicles.

The widespread uptake of Thatcham-approved security measures, alongside increased motorist awareness, has been recognised as contributing to the dramatic fall in vehicle thefts since the 1990s.

Mr Clark added: “We’ve released these statistics now to help make our Land Rover customers aware that their vehicle may be at an increased risk of theft compared to other cars.

“Hopefully, knowing how at risk their particular make of car is will encourage owners to look again at security and where their vehicles are being kept overnight, helping to lower the chances of theft.”

Luckily for motorists it is usually both possible and straightforward to have aftermarket security fitted to a car. For cars where aftermarket security just isn’t an option however, simply keeping vehicles locked away at night can make a real difference.

Adrian Flux has been providing Land Rover insurance for more than 40 years and insures all models of Land Rover, regardless of age. The broker also provides discounts for customers who install security measures or keep their car garaged.
