What is GPS Vehicle Tracking?

One of the most helpful things we can find out in an investigation is where someone is going. Unfortunately, tailing someone for several miles can attract unwanted attention. Private Investigations UK has a solution: GPS vehicle tracking.

‘GPS’ stands for Global Positioning System. It’s a technology developed and owned by the United States government, and it’s used to determine the location of objects on the earth. GPS devices receivesignals sent by satellites orbiting the earth. These satellites tell the device where it is in the form of a geographic coordinate.

How our GPS Vehicle Tracking Service Works

Options to Suit Your Goals

We’ll discreetly place a car tracker in your vehicle. The size of the device we use depends on your goals. Our smallest device is the size of a roll of pound coins, and the battery lasts for a few weeks. Our largest device is about half the size of an old videocassette, but it lasts for six months.
Once we’ve installed the tracking system in your car, it receives GPS signals from satellites. It communicates coordinate data to our software, interpreting it in real-time and visually representing it on a map. The beauty of GPS technology is that it doesn’t matter where in the world the vehicle goes; we can see where it is.
After conducting remote surveillance on the vehicle for a week, we’ll organise our findings into a clear and professional final report. Alternatively, we’ll offer you a further week of surveillance at a reduced rate.
Private Investigators UK offers cost-effective vehicle surveillance to businesses and private individuals. We can conduct careful observation through traditional surveillance methods and GPS vehicle tracking. To discuss which services are right for you, please call 0800 002 9858.

Why Might You Need a Vehicle Tracking Device?

Multifaceted Applications

GPS tracking devices can be helpful in all kinds of investigations. It’s almost always beneficial to know where a subject is going. We’ll take you through some of the most common investigations that employ car tracking.

Cheating Partner Investigations

If you’ve already been through our expert’s Signs of a Cheating Partner and decided you need our help, you might be wondering where our investigation into your partner will begin. Often, we recommend hiring a GPS tracker for their car as an excellent way to gather initial intelligence. We can observe them and find out whether they’re lying about where they go without you.

Once we have this information, we usually have a good number of solid leads. We’ll have information about the places they go to most often. We can then look into other people who might live at or frequent this place. In our experience, your partner will likely be having an affair with one of these people.

Child Custody Investigations

If you’re fighting for the custody of your child, it’s because you know that they’ll be better off in your care. That you’re a better caregiver can be a challenge to prove at a custody hearing. We can prove that the other parent is endangering the child through illegal or irresponsible activity.

When we plant a GPS device on the other parent’s car, we’ll be able to compile intelligence about where they when the child is in their care. We can get evidence that the child is being left unattended or brought to inappropriate and dangerous places.

We can also use the intelligence to develop leads and build a case to prove that the other parent is engaging in criminal activity, demonstrating that they’re an unfit caregiver to your child.

Corporate Tracking Solutions

Corporate Investigations

Company cars are the gold standard of job perks, and they’re increasingly being offered in job listings. Often, fuel consumption and vehicle maintenance are compensated in good faith. Unfortunately, some people abuse their employer’s trust. What should you do if you suspect one of your employees of misusing your business’ vehicle tracking?

It’s nearly impossible to dismiss an employee without proof of wrongdoing. It might not have occurred to you to hire car tracking services from a private detective agency, but we can gather evidence of employee misconduct using the latest GPS technology. We offer discounted fleet tracking to business owners who need peace of mind about their employees.

Private Investigations UK provides a wide array of services to help your business meet its goals. Click here for more information on Corporate Investigations.
