In early September 2011, I was told by a Louisiana State Policeman, that I was wasting my money on an alarm system and I should get a Ravelco on my new 2012 F-350 Ford Super Duty Pick Up truck. I met him at a Best Buy while inquiring on an alarm system. The window sticker was over $70,000 but I paid a little less for it. I never heard of Ravelco so my wife wrote it down and Googled it right there at Best Buy.
After reading about the Ravelco, I decided against the alarm and wanted a Ravelco.
After contacting you, I was sad to learn that you did not have any dealers in Lafayette or nearby but I was told that if I drive a little you all would meet me half way and install it at the San Jacinto Mall in Baytown, TX. I did just that.
Your installers were fun and professional.
Now, here is why I am thanking you. Last Saturday morning, 6 of us went duck hunting. We had 3 trucks total, all Ford Super Duties, mine was the newest and the others were a 2011 and a 2008 year models. After hunting, when we arrived back at the parking lot, my truck was the only truck of the three still there. Both of the other trucks were stolen.
My passenger side window and steering column were destroyed but my truck was still there. I plugged the Ravelco in and used a screw driver to turn the ignition on and it started right up!
Thank you so much for the service and an excellent product. I will have a Ravelco in every vehicle I have for the rest of my days. Incidentally, the police found one of the trucks (2011) the very next day in Corpus Christi, TX, it was out of fuel and on the side of the road with no back seats.
Thanks again for a great product.

I cannot tell you how highly I recommend this product to ANYONE who wants to protect their investment. As you know I had my truck stolen and completely stripped in October 2009, however, since recovering the truck (or what was left of it in December) and subsequently installing RAVELCO - there have been two new attempts to steal it (once from an office building and once from a restaurant parking lot) and the thieves were completely unsuccessful.
For anyone who has any doubt that this device is legit- please feel free to show them this email.

To say I was shocked would be an understatement. It took
Lojack 3 days to locate my car and they found it a quarter mile away from my house! My car then was towed to the nearby Acura dealership to be put back together. Both the police crime scene investigator and the Ravelco installer came out to look at the car and it was determined that my car was never actually started!
The thieves broke into my car and pushed it out of the driveway then based on the scuffmarks on the back bumper pushed it with another vehicle down the street where they tried to hotwire it with no success. Ravelco then installed a brand new system in my car free of charge as it is covered in my warranty.
Thank you Ravelco for saving my car.

I wanted to send you and RAVELCO an unsolicited note to thank you for installing such a great product into my FORD F250.
"I knew when I bought my Acura Integra GSR that they are some of the most frequently stolen vehicles out there, which is exactly why I equipped the car with a Ravelco and a Lojack system. It took less then 2 months for my car to disappear out of my driveway.
I parked and pulled out my Ravelco plug. We left Friday's an hour and a half later and while trying to disarm the stock alarm using the keyless remote, the first thing I noticed was that I didn't beep.
I didn't think much of it. I jumped into the driver seat and noticed the seat had been moved back and my feet where 6 inches from the pedals. I KNEW IT RIGHT THEN ... SOMEONE HAD BEEN IN MY CAR.
I looked at the steering column and the ignition ... the plastic had been ripped off and the ignition cyclinder had been pulled....THEY TRIED TO STEAL MY BABY, TEN DAYS AFTER THE RAVELCO SYSTEM AS INSTALLED,
I have no doubt that without the RAVELCO system, I would have lost my dream car.
Thank you sooo much Chuck for a great install and thank you RAVELCO!! I don't know how anyone with who owns a car they love can get along with out it!!

So, the real reason why I decided to write this testimonial. I drove my car up to Edison, NJ to hang out with my cousin and we decided to get a few beers at TGI Friday's, just a few miles away from his house.
Professional car thieves keep up with the latest technology of these types of systems. Thus, they can often be defeated by a highly motivated well-trained criminal. Thieves target the car they want, and then work quickly to start them and usually bring them to a predetermined location where they can successfully strip them of the car parts that they are looking for.
Car tracking systems may help locate the vehicle after it is stolen, but often the vehicle is already significantly damaged before it is found. People should understand that tracking systems are for vehicle recovery, not theft prevention. Traditional alarm and tracking systems don't always provide the type of deterrent and prevention that most automobile owners are looking for.
Today, with the number of factory installed systems and after-market alarm devices, many people aren't even fazed when they hear a car alarm go off. The thieves know this. Given my experience as a cop, I'm familiar with your product, having seen many attempted motor vehicle thefts foiled when they couldn't get the car started.
After exploring many types of systems, I chose the Ravelco system for my personal vehicle. In my opinion, it is the best device on the market to achieve my main objective, which is not to be able to start the car in the first place. With your system, I can park my car and rest assured that it will be there when I return. If by some chance they do try to steal it, I'm confident that they'll quickly give up and take their business elsewhere, saving me a lot of unnecessary grief, aggravation and down time that owners experiences when their car is stolen.

I've just retired with 30 years of experience as a police officer, and I'm very familiar with the easy pickings of cars, even those equipped with traditional alarm systems.
My last rig was stolen about 6 months ago (2010 F-350). I was devastated for at least three months. A Houston Policeman told me about your product and I called and had your system put on my new rig. Your installers came out to my job in Crosby and installed it.
Well, it happened again last night. My truck was broken into, the ignition switch ripped out as well as part of the steering column. When the thieves could not get it they just left it and this morning when I went out to get the paper, I noticed the door on my truck was wide open. They did some damage but my truck and my welding rig were still there. I owe you guys!

Thank You - Thank You - Thank You - Ravelco! You saved my new 2012 F-350 dually and my Lincoln (Pipeliner 200) Welder.
I tell everyone I see that has a Ford Super Duty or really nice car about your product. I give them your business card and tell them it worked for me.I bought a 2001 Ford F-250 crew cab 4 x 4 in August of 2009.
I bought this truck knowing fully that it was one of the most stolen vehicles in the country. Being in Law Enforcement I knew that if my truck was stolen the chances of getting it back in one piece was going to be slim to none. Before I bought my truck I had researched a lot of different security systems. I finally settled on the Ravelco. Just for the simple reason that was a proactive security system vs. an alarm system that is only reactive. Plus I have seen several high quality, top end alarms be bypassed and stolen with out the alarm ever going off.
I had my truck about a week and called Ravelco to talk about the system. I spoke with Hampton Jensen who was the dealer for Tucson. Hampton was very knowledgeable and very professional. I set up a time for him to come out install the Ravelco on my truck with in the week. The installer showed up at my house to install the Ravelco. He was very professional and was very meticulous. i am very anal about my truck and was curious as to how this system is installed so I watched him install the entire system. It took him over three hours to install this system.
This system is for real.
A car thief would have to have several hours to figure out where the wires go and be able to retrace them back to where they are supposed to be. Even if they were to start “jumping” wires or plugs there is a better chance of blowing fuses then ever getting that vehicle to run. He did such a great job that even me as the owner had a hard time finding where all the wires went to. What a superb installation.
I knew that this system was expensive but I didn’t want to loose my truck. After Hampton finished up and explained everything to me, he cleaned up every thing that he had out and left. Two and half hours after having the Ravelco installed in my truck I went to Costco to grab something. My wife and I were not in the store for more than 20 minutes in the middle of the day. When we came out to the truck I used the remote to unlock the truck. When I got in I heard a dinging noise and didn’t know why it was dinging at me. I then went to insert the key and realized that my ignition was destroyed.
It was at this time that I realized that someone had just tried to steal my truck. My truck that I had only owned for 1 week was saved due to “RAVELCO”.
Ravelco you guys rock. You have an awesome product.
I feel safe parking my truck anywhere at any time. It may be robbed of every thing in or on the truck but I am confident that my truck will be there when I come out, barring being towed away. As far as some one trying to steal it by means of hot wiring the truck. It’s not going to happen.
Thank you very much for saving my truck. Feel free to use this testimonial on your website if you choose to.
