Catalytic Converter Protection Edmonton

    Catalytic converter theft in Edmonton is on the rise.

    In 2021, there were 4,797 catalytic converter thefts reported in Alberta – and 55% of those occurred in Edmonton!

    To help keep our valued customers and their vehicles safe from theft, Park Muffler now designs and installs custom catalytic converter cages to protect your car against catalytic converter theft.

    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

    I brought my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Sahib and asked for a custom exhaust system. He asked me what I was looking for, and he picked out the components for me and boy did he deliver. Now my Grand Cherokee sounds like how a V8 should! I will definitely be back with any future needs.

    These guys are 100% the best shop I've been to. I went to see them at 4 pm, and they had my truck in the shop in less than 20 minutes to get a new exhaust on it the way I imagined it and the sound I was looking for as well and they knocked it out of the ball park the prices are fair and affordable as well I cannot complain at all and I will definitely be going back in the future to get more work done by them. And thanks to everyone I met there that day that helped me.

    Amazing service and incredible management and staff. Brought my modified wheel chair van in for exhaust system repair. They were able to get me in right away. They helped me get my son who is in a motorized wheelchair into the waiting area. The van was put up on a hoist and the manager showed me what was wrong and what repairs were needed. They gave me an excellent price. So refreshing to know that there are honest vehicle repair shops still around. Highly recommended!

    It was a Saturday afternoon, no one was open to get a pieces of 3" pipe. so out of just because we tried calling and the owner answered the phone. We asked him if he was open and was told no we aren't open anymore and I was just going to leave, but if you really need it I will wait for you to get here. Once we arrived it was top shelf services with the greatest customer services I have ever see. Yes, it was just a pieces of pipe to him but it was the differences between us for filling out commitment or not to a customer of ours. When one company provides top shelf services to another company, it great for all customers on all sides.Great customer service Park Muffler.
