Catalytic converter theft is part of the phenomenon that has seen metal theft become the UK `s fastest growing crime and has quadrupled since 2008 with an estimated £1.3 Billion a year burden on the economy (mostly in the Rail sector ), with scrap and the precious metals included in the catalytic converter (palladium ,platinum etc) having risen 600% since 2008 creating unprecedented illicit resell values this crime is here to stay today and for the foreseeable future and has been ratified by the recent hike in Platinum hitting $1200 an ounce and now more valuable pound for pound than gold.
Our belief in the CatClamp`s sustainability is endorsed by its proven sales track record and in its 5 years of History firstly in the USA and then recently in the UK has never been compromised and unlike its limited competitors is proven across multiple manufacturer and model bases and NOT model specific.
With replacement Cats costing anywhere between £ 500 and £2000 on smaller vehicles and up to £3500 (fitted) on larger LCV`s and 7.5 T plus the subsequent collateral damage to the vehicle and property in addition to the down time and replacement vehicle costs the end result to the insurer / self insured are claims totalling many thousands of pounds ( average £2500 per claim not including replacement vehicle costs ) and the subsequent whip lash will inevitably result in premium hikes and possibly reinsurance renewal refusals so there has never been a better time to invest in the future by protecting your assets today.
