Can Van Trackers Be Moved Between Vans?

Latest News

GPS van trackers are a worthwhile investment for businesses looking to streamline their operations, improve vehicle security and cut down on fleet running costs. For those with existing vehicle trackers fitted, you may be wondering if when it comes time to replace your vans, can you transfer the vehicle tracker to a new vehicle?

In this guide, we’ll be explaining how you can move your Fleetsmart vehicle tracking devices between different vans and the potential cost of doing so, for both our professionally installed tracking devices and self-fit tracking devices.

Can I Move My Professionally Installed Van Tracking Devices?

At Fleetsmart, our service team can arrange for an on-site engineer to visit any UK location to transfer your existing device from an old van to a new van. Simply give our team a call and we can get the transfer booked in.

How Long Does it Take to Transfer a Professionally Installed Tracking Device Between Vans?

To remove and reinstall your vehicle trackers from your old van onto your new van on the same site, it will take around one to two hours.

Any non-standard installations with add ons such as remote immobilisation and in-vehicle cameras will add some time on top of this, so it’s important to keep this in mind when considering downtime for your vehicles if your van has these features.

If your vans 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 on another site.

How Much Does it Cost to Transfer Professionally Installed Van Trackers?

If both vehicles are available for the removal and refitting at the same location, the charge for this service is £90. Alternatively, if two visits are required at multiple locations, the charge is £65 per visit.

Can I Move My Self-Fit Van Tracking Device?

Yes! Transferring self-fit devices between two vans is incredibly quick and easy.

Simply follow our installation video supplied with the devices to find out how to uninstall the device from your old van and reinstall it into your new one.

How Long Does it Take to Transfer a Self-Fit Van Tracking Device?

It should take no more than 30 minutes to transfer a self-fit vehicle tracker between vans, provided both vans are on the same site at the same time.

Do I Need Any Experience to Transfer the Self-Fit Devices Between Vehicles?

No experience is needed to uninstall and reinstall our self-fit tracking devices. We have designed them to be incredibly straightforward to install and with our helpful video tutorial, you can follow along step-by-step easily.

If you do get stuck, you can always give our team a call and we’ll be happy to help guide you through the process.
