    Keep reading to learn more about catalytic converter theft prevention and how we can help you.

    Why Do People Steal Catalytic Converters?

    Catalytic converters contain a precious metal known as rhodium, which now goes for almost $13,500 CDN per ounce.

    Not only is the cost of rhodium incentive enough for criminals to steal catalytic converters, but the process of removing them from a vehicle is fairly simple.

    So simple, in fact, that the theft can occur in a matter of minutes.

    If your catalytic converter is stolen, you may be covered for its replacement under a comprehensive auto insurance policy – but you may be responsible for paying a deductible and any depreciation.

    This is why it’s important to consider catalytic converter theft prevention to protect your vehicle.

    Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention

    If you are worried about losing your catalytic converter to thieving hands, here are some useful tips:

    Find Out if Your Car is Targeted

    Thieves will target particular vehicle models when it comes to stealing catalytic converters. A simple call to your local muffler shop will give you an idea of which cars are at a higher risk in your area.

    Paint Your Catalytic Converter

    While painting your catalytic converter doesn’t prevent theft, it makes it easier for authorities to trace it.

    Using a high-temperature fluorescent paint, paint your catalytic converter and inscribe your vehicle’s VIN number on the painted surface.

    Install an Anti-Theft Device

    A cable locking device can be installed on your catalytic converter to make it more difficult to steal.

    One of the most popular devices is a steel shield that fits over the catalytic converter that requires more time and extra tools to remove.

    Park Muffler offers this type of protection!

    Catalytic Converter Theft Protection from Park Muffler

    At Park Muffler, we use galvanized steel cages with cold-rolled round bars to protect your catalytic converter. The cage is securely bolted to your vehicle to prevent theft.

    What Our Customers Say

    We got the catalytic converter stolen and we went to this place. The owner sat with us and explained, the current situation with the catalytic converters and the options we had. They found the parts and repaired the car in the same day. They put a cage underneath the catalytic converter to protect it better. We were invited into the shop and we saw the work they did. The owner showed us around, introduced us to the team. In spite of the hard time we were going through we felt they treated us like family and this is something we appreciate. We highly recommend this place

    After my wife's engine light went on, she drove to the nearest mechanic center. Nervous about her car's condition and about being a newcomer to Park Muffler, her fears were quickly dissipated by the courteous treatment and friendly-informative manner of the staff. She was put more at ease at the very professional manner in which they proceeded to do diagnostics, identify and detail the problem along with giving a very reasonable cost-estimate of repairs. What made her experience even more positive was the extent they went to look after the problem, taking more time and extensive measures to get it exactly right, but while honoring the original estimated price, even though much more time and effort was required than initially anticipated. At the end, my wife's car was running perfectly again for a real bargain given all the work that went into it. It is very refreshing to find such a combination of professionalism and honor in dealing with a mechanic, but that is exactly what we found with Park Muffler. We highly recommend them and would give them more than 5 stars if we were able to.
