Crime Figures


Research shows that many people who have had their car stolen do not feel that insurance took all the pain out of losing their vehicle or covered all their costs. In addition to feeling violated most victims of theft are not always covered for out of pocket expenses and the inconvenience and hassle of finding a new car.

The cost of vehicle theft is met by all New Zealanders – even you – and that cost is now estimated at $100 million per year – that’s 1 Billion this decade! Vehicle theft not only affects insurance premiums, but also the cost of crime investigations, legal and court costs, the cost to rehabilitate offenders, and the cost to the environment from dumped stolen cars.

Thieves can also use your car to commit another crime or injure an innocent person.
