Individuals and businesses throughout the country have experienced theft of their vehicle’s catalytic converter over the past several months. The tough thing about this type of theft is there isn’t a lot you can do to stop them and you won’t know you’ve been victimized until you try to start your vehicle. The good news is DeBoer’s Auto has come up with a way to deter thieves from stealing these catalytic converters. Here are the details you should know.
How Much Does It Cost To Replace A Catalytic Converter?
It only takes a brief moment for a thief to cut out your catalytic converter. And when they do, they can sell it for anywhere between $300-$1,500. So it’s easy to see why it’s a popular target for theft. The unfortunate part for you is the repair and replacement for the catalytic converter can be anywhere from $2,500-$8,000. Insurance might cover all or part of this bill for you, but there’s a chance your premiums will increase afterward. It’s a situation that can put you in a difficult position, so it’s worth exploring options to prevent theft, to begin with.
Preventing Catalytic Converter Theft
It’s difficult to prevent theft in anything, much less a catalytic converter. The best thing you can do is deter thieves and make it harder for them to cut yours out. DeBoer’s Auto offers a catalytic converter shield that can be installed on any personal or fleet vehicle to deter potential thieves. The shield wraps around the catalytic converter and exhaust parts. So if a thief tries to cut it quickly as they’ve done with other vehicles, it prevents them from doing so. And since thieves don’t like to stay in one location very long, it could be a worthy investment to install it on your vehicle.
