Can I Move Trackers from Car to Car?

Latest News

If you’re looking to streamline your business’ operations, improve company car security and cut down on your fleet running costs, Fleetsmart’s advanced company car vehicle trackers could be the perfect solution for you.

For those who already have our trackers fitted in your company cars, you may be wondering if you’re able to move the trackers between cars when the time comes to replace your fleet vehicles.

In this guide, we’ll be explaining how you can transfer your Fleetsmart vehicle tracking devices between your company cars and the potential costs involved.

Can I Move My Professionally Installed Car Tracker to Another Car?

Yes, absolutely. At Fleetsmart, we can arrange for our service team to carry out an on-site visit to any UK location to transfer your existing device from one car to another. Simply give our team a call and we’ll get the transfer booked in at a time that suits you.

How Long Does it Take to Move Professionally Installed Trackers Between Cars?

In order to remove your Fleetsmart vehicle tracker from your existing company car and reinstall it into your new one, it will take between one to two hours.

Please note, any non-standard installations that include add-ons such as remote immobilisation and dash cams will add some time on top of this, so it’s important to bear this in mind when arranging the transfer if your car has these features.

It’s also important to know that if your cars are on two separate sites, it will take around 30-45 minutes to uninstall the tracker on one site and 30-45 minutes to reinstall it at the other site (plus any time it takes to travel between the two sites).

How Much Does it Cost to Move Professionally Installed Trackers Between Cars?

If the two cars that require the tracker transfer at the same location, the removal and refitting charge is £90.

However, if two site visits are required (or multiple locations), the charge is £65 per visit.
