What is GLOBALi and why is it so effective? The answer can
be explained in three steps:
- First, it’s important to understand how the
value of stolen vehicles and their parts can be decreased.
- Second, you’ll need to learn more about GLOBALi
and what makes the program unique in the automotive industry.
- Third, provides vehicle owners, dealers and law
enforcement access to a Vehicle Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN) that is
a shared resource to help prevent auto theft.
GLOBALi is an effective solution that is known to car thieves.
Recognized as one of the best theft deterrent programs in the industry, it is less
likely that your vehicle will be stolen simply because it is branded with GLOBALi.
More than four hundred vehicles are stolen every day in
Canada. That means that roughly every three minutes, a vehicle is stolen, and
it costs Canadians over $1.2 billion a year to replace or repair the lost vehicles.
These numbers have been on the rise, and the only way to slow down the
criminals at large is to take a more proactive stance on theft. The majority of
stolen cars will be sent to chop shops, where
they’ll be stripped and sold off as parts. Understandably, parts that can be
easily identified or tracked are worth substantially less than unmarked parts, which
is what makes the GLOBALi program so effective.
Developed from forensic sciences
GLOBALi Theft Identification labels are the most recognized in the industry. Each
theft ID label has a unique registration number that is tied to the vehicle’s
VIN. They’re strategically installed in ten locations throughout the vehicle
with the addition of two labels on the driver and passenger side windows. Some
are visible and act as a deterrent system to potential car thieves, and the ten
theft ID labels are placed on the most frequently stolen vehicle parts. While
it’s true that a branding label can be removed, GLOBALi theft ID labels, if
removed, leave behind the unique theft ID number that adheres to the body parts
and is only visible with a frequency specific ultra-violet light
theft ID numbers can also be used to identify stolen vehicle parts should they
be involved in an organized crime.
Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN)
A registration number alone is useless unless there’s a way
to track it. The GLOBALi Vehicle Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN) is one
of the largest network of its kind in North America, which makes identifying
the true VIN of stolen vehicle and parts substantially easier. The VRRN is
comprised of local law enforcement, dealerships, and vehicle owners. The VRRN
is growing daily and has over 5 million registered vehicles in the network.
