Did you know that every insurance company in Kenya asks whether a vehicle has a certified anti-theft device?
This question is asked through the proposal form when one is applying for vehicle insurance in Kenya. An anti-theft device refers to a security device installed within the vehicle that inhibits or reduces vehicle theft risks. There are two main types of accepted vehicle anti-theft solutions that are recommend for one to have in their vehicle.
Vehicle Alarm with cut-off System
Vehicle alarm with cut-off deters forced entry and unauthorised driving. This is a standard security measure where the alarm is triggered due to failure prper vehicle unlocking. The cut-off system requires one to press a hidden button in order to prevent car from stalling.
Vehicle tracker involves the installation of a smart GPS powered device in the vehicle that enables efficient monitoring of vehicle location through a website or mobile application. Advanced trackers can also be used to remotely switch off the vehicle. This is considered as a superior vehicle anti-theft solution.
The anti-theft device helps reduce risk of losses caused by theft. This benefits both the insurance company and the vehicle owner.
It is always recommended to get a certified anti-theft device installed by a credible company in Kenya. Evidence of the anti-theft certificate will reduce amount charged by the insurance company in the event of theft. Most insurance companies deduct 20% of the vehicle value from the compensation amount in the event of vehicle theft. Having a certified alarm with a cut-off system often reduces this to 10% while having a certifed tracker can reduce this to 2.5%. This details are stipulated in the insurance company’s policy document.
