Unfortunately the theft of caravans and motorhomes is something that is far too common in the UK. It seems as though every time you turn around you speak to someone who has their touring vehicle vandalised or stolen. Swift are now fighting back with the VIN CHIP theft deterrent system.
The new system is now available for motorhomes and will be a standard feature on all the new Swift 2019 models.
So if you are buying a 2019 motorhome model you will get this additional piece of security as well as added piece of mind.
VIN CHIP is an established industry frontrunner in anti-theft identification system for touring caravans. The system has also been a fantastic tool for the police to track and find stolen vehicles. Getting back stolen goods has to be one of the best feelings, especially if the police have found the culprit.
Tim Booth of NAVCIS said: "This expansion to include Swiftmotorhomes will further assist in the work of police when called upon to positively identify a suspect motorhome. The advanced technology that VIN CHIPT provides is an essential part of the work to disrupt criminal activity"
When purchasing your Swift motorhome the VIN PACK will include concealed RFID chips so that the chassis and body will always be identifiable. Using the original Vehicle Identification Number - the 17-digit VIN - the RFID will be unique to that vehicle and records will link directly to the owner and their contact details.
Nick Page, Swift Group Commercial Director, says: "Swift takes customer security incredibly seriously. We already fit our proactive Swift Command tracker to all our caravans and motorhomes, and we are working with VIN Chip to further strengthen security - giving our customers added peace of mind.
"VIN Chip is already fitted to all caravans and we're delighted to now introduce it to all Swift motorhomes. The industry standard in this type of security identification, VIN Chip uses state-of-the-art technology to prevent vehicles from being given new identities in the unfortunate event they are stolen."
Sean Bailey, managing director of VIN CHIPT said: "This is great news for VIN CHIPT and we are delighted to expand our work to increase security of motorhomes."
It is great to see such a large caravan and motorhome company taking steps forward to ensure their vehicles stay safe and secure. The aftercare factor from Swift, with the addition of the VIN CHIP, puts them to the very top of the list for me.
