We live in Michigan, Upper Peninsula. Last year (2018) we were "winter Texans" and stayed in Laredo. We were told by many neighbors and law enforcement officers that we should get your Ravelco Protection System for our truck while visiting there for the winter. It would be different if we heard it from only one source but we heard the same thing from two different branches of law enforcement officers. We took their advice and had your Ravelco installed while on a trip to San Antonio. It was installed in our 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty that we tow our travel trailer with. (Nicer than our home). Thank God we did not have any problems there for nearly 3 months that we stayed. Last night we came out from a movie and our door on the truck was wide open. As we walked towards the truck we noticed all the lights on the dash were on as if someone tried to start it. It did not look like the thieves destroyed anything so we plugged in the Ravelco and the truck started. We called the police and made a report they must have thought we were crazy because nothing was damaged. The thieves must have used a scanner to open our door and turn on our ignition. Of course the truck would not start because of your wonderful Ravelco system. Thank you so much for a proven product! - Amber & Anthony S., January 23, 2019
Hello RAVELCO Company, My name is Floyd Smith, and I am writing you to share the wonderful excitement I have right now because of the RAVELCO system you guys installed on my vehicles. This past Saturday the 15th of December, my wife was at the local Sam's here in Houston and while just being in the store about 35 minutes and returning to it she noticed her driver's door was opened, but thought she had left it open in the rush. But it wouldn't start, so she called me and I was out of town, but I told her to call Triple AAA to boost it and if not tow her home and I would check it when I return. Well, after returning home I tried to start it and it wouldn't start, so I looked under the hood and I noticed the PCM Module was sitting in an empty space under the hood, disconnected and a red flag went up. I plugged it up and also placed a 15 amp fuse back under the fuse box where it had been removed and checked the door handle and noticed it had been jarred somewhat. It would close but wouldn't lock, I knew then some thief had tried to steal my wife's Cadillac Escalade. But, because of the RAVELCO'S system that had been installed on the Escalade the thieves were unsuccessful in stealing our vehicle. I am so grateful for that day I found your company on the Internet almost two years ago. Were it not for you all installing the system, this would have been the second time our vehicle was stolen. I always promote RAVELCO by saying, "Over 5 Million Sold, and none of them stolen". Now I am a true witness, it Works!!!!! So again Thanks from Floyd and Christine Smith. We are advocates for Ravelco, and we will always push your company. My wife is especially grateful . . . I will refer your company to all that will listen. Especially those who have GMC vehicles and or Cadillac vehicles they are at the top of the food chain for theft. May GOD continue to bless your Company and you all as well. You're my Number One Anti Theft Company. It's worth every dime we spent for it. - BISHOP, Dr. Floyd Smith Sr. 12-17-18
Dear Ravelco Company: I have read some of your testimonials to get an idea of what I should write to you for saving my car last night. I feel kind of ashamed because I do not have an extravagant vehicle like most of your other customer's testimonials. I work 2nd shift as a nurse at Memorial Herman and last night someone attempted to steal my 1996 Honda Prelude, but could not because of your Ravelco system that my Dad had installed back in December of 1995. Thanks for a great system. Kylie G. Houston, Texas 10-18-2018
Hello Ravelco: If I was back in Houston right now I would take your entire crew to lunch at Killen's on me. This past Wednesday night we drove to the border in Donna, Texas for our annual dove hunt. We are staying at the same hotel where two years ago (2016) our brand new 2017 Dodge Ram Diesel was stolen and never to be seen again. For Christmas 2016, my wife had ya'll install your Ravelco on my new truck a 2017 Ford Super Duty F-450. I do not know if you remember but ya'll came to my job in Pearland to install it. It was raining very hard and we pulled it in one of our bays for your crew to work on. This morning, before breakfast, I went out to my truck to load it up with the guns and coolers. I noticed the driver's door was wide open. I thought my son was already in the truck but he was still in the room. There was no damage to any of the door locks. I wondered how they got in? The police officer who was called said car thieves use a remote scanner to unlock the doors and start it. They did succeed to unlock and open the doors but thanks to your RAVELCO they could not start or most important - STEAL IT. Thank You So MUCH. - Delbert P. Alvin, TX 09-14-2018.
Good Day Ravelco, Please, if you have a minute take time to read this email and realize what a great product you have. I say this because sometimes people who work for a company do not really understand how the product that they are manufacturing helps the community. Two weeks ago, I took delivery of a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD High Country. Being that I am 71 years old, this truck cost 3 times what my home in Metairie, Louisiana cost back in 1974. This was the nicest truck I have ever had and I wanted to protect it. I Googled "Anti Theft Devices" and saw that your Ravelco was on the first page at the top of the list. My son said that companies sometimes pay for this high raking (placement) but I saw that your Ravelco listing was not sponsored or a paid site, so I clicked on it. After reading your website, it upset me that you did not have a dealer in the New Orleans area. So I decided to take the trip with my granddaughter to Baytown, Texas (the closest your Houston installers came this way east) and have the Ravelco installed. It is a good thing I did, because last week at the mall here they had a rash of break-ins and stolen vehicles. I have mixed feelings about this because they broke into my truck and destroyed my ignition but the good part is the RAVELCO saved my truck! I love you guys! Please send me 2 more Ravelco warning stickers for my windows. When I had the windows tinted they removed the Ravelco labels that your men applied. I know your installers told me to have the tinters install the tint right over the Ravelco labels and I did tell the truck shop that tinted my windows to do that. But, as the world is today, they did not listen and scraped them off. I can't say enough about this amazing product. God Bless Ravelco and thanks again for such a great service.

Just want to let you know the Ravelco anti-theft device you installed on my truck saved my truck last week. Paid for itself many times over! They tried to steal the truck but were unsuccessful. The only thing wrong with your product is that the lowlife thieves either can’t read or they are unaware of how good the Ravelco system works. We need to get the word out to the thieves so they don’t waste their time and damage a vehicle that they can’t steal! The officer that investigated was so impressed with the system that he took a picture of the Ravelco plug and mentioned he was going to get one for his own truck. Great Product!!!

Congratulations, Ravelco. Your great product saved my 2017 Jeep Wrangler from being someone else’s Jeep last night. Because we always remove our doors and our windows are plastic, we chose not to have your Ravelco stickers applied on them. Well, last night some scumbag cut right through the window and opened the door. They went on to destroy my ignition and were able to turn on every light on in the dash trying to start and steal my JK. But thanks to your Ravelco they were stopped in their tracks. God Bless Ravelco. - Kent L. – Sugarland, Texas 10-24-17
Good Morning Ravelco, an attempted truck theft was foiled last night because of your fabulous Ravelco Security (anti Theft) Device. Due to the rising flood waters in the Barker Cypress (Houston) area, I was forced to bring my truck more inland to San Antonio where my daughter and her husband live. Knowing my truck was much more safe there than here in Houston, I parked it on the street in right front of her home. Yesterday morning, August 30th, I went to get a change of clothes in my truck and the driver's door was open, the dash and ignition lights were on but the truck's engine was not running. I could see where some bum rifled through all my belongs but as far as we know they took absolutely nothing. I pushed the start button to shut the ignition off, inserted my RAVELCO plug and once again pushed the start button and my 2017 Ford F450 Dually started! Thanks to Ravelco for saving my truck and most of all, my new Welding Rig. Trying toinsult me once again, my wife said no one wanted my old clothes anyway so they left them! Once again thank you for your great anti theft device!

Dear Ravelco Crew: I am writing this message to let you know how happy I am with your Ravelco device. In January, I purchased a 2017 F-450 Platinum at a Texas Ford Dealership outside of Houston and paid more than my first home for it. I asked the salesman about protecting it with a Ravelco and he talked me out of it, saying that I did not need a Ravelco because Ford has their own factory security system. I work with many welders who have your Ravelco system on their trucks. They teased me every day saying that my truck was guaranteed going to get stolen sooner or later. Last month I caved in and had one of your crews come out to the jobsite near NRG stadium and install your device while I was working. I was able to keep working because all I needed was my welding rig in the bed. At that time your installers put Ravelco warning stickers on my windows, but they were removed by the tint people when I had my windows tinted. What happened next was 100% my fault because I never called you and asked for more stickers. On Friday, February 24th when I came out of my hotel in Houston I saw my driver's door open and all my dashboard lights on. The thieves somehow opened the door without destroying my door handle. The truck has a push button start and the thieves had to get by that also because the dash lights were illuminated. Thank God for your Ravelco because they were unable to take my truck. I will never have another vehicle unless it has your great Ravelco product. Thanks again and I will guarantee spread the word about Ravelco

Greetings Ravelco Team: I just wanted to say thank you for your superior product. Last month I had your Ravelco device installed in my 2017 F-250 Super Duty Pick Up. At first I was very upset at the car dealership because I thought I was getting a BIG DADDY SUPER DUTY like I had for so many years in the past. Instead (well at least in my opinion) I got a lifted F-150 that has a diesel engine in it that Ford now calls a SUPER DUTY. Like I said I was not happy with the new body change but I figured what the heck I better keep it because my old truck 2011 F-250 was getting old. Last week I was running cattle and I noticed a truck park next to mine on the road where I parked the cattle trailer. I really didn't think much of it because who would try to steal something from a truck while I right there nearby on a horse. At lunchtime as I was riding back over towards my truck and I noticed the driver's door wide open. I knew I did not leave my truck like that. When I went to look inside the truck I saw my push button that starts my truck pulled out and hanging out of the dash. All the dash lights were lit just like it does when you use the key fob to start it. I called the police and they came out right away (2 hours) and took a report. The cop told me that your Ravelco stopped it. He asked me for my Ravelco plug and inserted it in the Ravelco unit. He pushed the start button and the truck started. The officer said that the thieves must have used a laptop scanner to open the door and to turn on my ignition since that new truck does not use a key any longer. He also asked why I did not have any Ravelco window stickers. I told him they were removed when I had the windows tinted. I then asked him if he was a part time Ravelco salesman and he laughed and said he has them in all his vehicles. I now love my new truck and I am glad your Ravelco protected it.

Good Morning Ravelco Team: I wish I would have had known about your company many moons ago. After having two trucks and a car stolen in the last 10 years - to say the least is that I needed your Ravelco product. Thankfully, a few weeks ago after having my truck stolen, a Houston Police officer recommended the Ravelco to me. Now, I am snug as a bug in a rug knowing that no one can take my truck. What I do not understand is why the media has not locked on to your good product and if they can't promote it, at least mention it in their news segments on auto theft. Instead they report the bad but do not tell you how to really fix the problem. (Like Trump says) Almost weekly, the local news channels have segments on auto theft. At the end of the report, all the reporter says is "to help prevent auto theft . . . be sure to lock your vehicle, park under a well lit area and install an alarm system." (Duh) I am not an expert but you would think these reporters would know more than I do. Alarm systems do not work, I had them in all of my vehicles! Also, in my last truck I had a tracking system that turned out to be a piece of crap! Now, the sad thing is I do feel that I am an expert in this field because I had 3 vehicles stolen! Once again thank you for the secure feeling of knowing my truck will always be there.

Hi Ravelco Guys: Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my Ravelco. I have a couple of wise guys in IT who work in my office building who said they have a program and software on a laptop that can open and start my new 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. I thought they were kidding around, so I told them to try it. They unlocked it and also started it. I just stood there shocked that my new Jeep could be compromised (stolen) so easily. When I arrived home and very upset I Googled "best anti theft device" and your Ravelco was right on top of the first page. I liked what I read (testimonials). I called your office in Houston and asked that if I had a Ravelco installed could thieves start my vehicle with a laptop? The tech I spoke with at your office said absolutely not. So I made an appointment and had your company come out and install a Ravelco system. Believe it or not, your installers came out to my home in Magnolia on a Sunday morning. All week I have been waiting for the right time to ask these two IT guys who have been teasing me to try to start my Jeep once again. Cockily they accepted the challenge and since today is Friday, I told the dynamic duo that I had an anti theft device installed in my Jeep and they could not mess with it any longer. They just laughed and did not believe me so just before lunch I and at least 20 co-workers trekked down to the parking garage to watch these guys try to start my Jeep once again. On the way down the stairs in our hot parking garage I started getting worried and very nervous listening to them say it did not matter what I had installed they could scan it and get it. I was hoping that all the great things I read about the Ravelco system were true. AND YES THEY WERE! They could not start my Jeep. One of them asked me for your phone number because he wanted one. Do I get a commission? Only kidding. Thanks again.

Dear Ravelco Team: This past Thursday (4/14/16) I went to Minute Maid Park to see the Astros get beat by my home team the Royals. Thanks to your Ravelco security system I still have my truck. My 2 month old2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500's door was wide open to greet me when I came out after the game was over. The punks broke the ignition trying to steal my truck. They stole some tools in my console but most important my truck was still there. Thank you so much for your system. A police officer who lives next door to me in the Woodlands recommended your system, and he was right! Thanks again and I will be your best salesman now!

To the Ravelco crew: Please let me share a story with you that is going to make a few friends of mine pissed off. When I picked up my new 2016 Ford F150 King Ranch a few weeks ago, I wanted to get your Ravelco installed as soon as possible. The Ravelco system saved my previous F-350 Super Duty twice in the last 6 years that I had my truck. Two of my jack-ass friends said Ravelco was "old school" and I needed to get with the program and get a "state of the art" full blown alarm system with a paging system that alerts you if someone is messing with your truck. I don't know why but I took their advice and paid nearly $1000 to have one installed in my truck like they did. A week ago after the Texan's game, when I came out my new truck was gone. I call to see if it was towed and it was not. I did not even get a text letting me know someone was messing with it either (like advertised). A policeman who took my report said someone must have disarmed it with a scanner. What a waste of money! I am taking delivery of my new 2016 F-150 this Wednesday. Is it possible for your crew to install it at the dealership before I take it home? I am scared to death.

"Hello - I am a Ravelco owner and I own a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. I live in the San Francisco East Bay area. Thieves attempted to steal my car on 09/01/2015. Thanks to Ravelco, they failed. However, I'm still left with a significantly damaged car that will take weeks to fully repair. In addition to punching a hole in the door and door lock, they stole the engine ECM and kicked in the fog lights out of spite. I have tinted windows, so I'm concerned the thieves did not see the Ravelco stickers in the window. What I'm wondering is -- how do I make it VERY clear that this car cannot be stolen? Do you a have custom window sun shade with the Ravelco logo on it? I'd be happy to back my car in every day and display your logo for all to see :). The Ravelco device was successful at preventing my car from being stolen, but I'm also interested in something that will prevent my car from becoming a target in the first place. I clearly need to do something additional to protect my vehicle or this will just happen again. Thank you

Hi There: I just purchased a 2015 F-150 Platinum Pick Up and I want your mechanics to come and install your Ravelco truck protection device ASAP. This truck cost more than my house did 20 years ago! Your fabulous device saved my old truck two times before I finally took your word for it and had you send me the Ravelco window stickers. I don't like and never wanted stickers on my stuff but I am sure the thieves see the Ravelco sticker and know they are wasting their time. I just took delivery on Monday and hope you can come as quick as possible. Thank you so much

Dear Ravelco - I do have a story that might interest you. When I bought my truck, a Dodge Ram Quad, in 2010 (online from Ebay) I had already decided that I would put in a Ravelco system since that seemed to be the best system available. The person from whom I purchased the truck lived about 60 miles away from me and he offered to deliver it so I accepted and it came right to my door! I phoned the Ravelco salesman and he said he could put in the Ravelco system the same day so by that evening the truck was already protected. Good thing too! Although I live in the country and I put the truck behind some trees where it could not be seen from the road, somebody tried to start it up during the night. The neighbors who lived behind me could see the truck although I could not. They said that whoever was working on the truck was busy for hours trying to start it. In the morning I was shocked to discover that the hood was open on the truck and the driver's side door was open. The truck would not start but was otherwise OK apparently. My neighbor came up to the fence and told me that somebody had been working on it for hours already. I asked him why he did not call me. He said he thought that I had hired that fellow to fix the vehicle. I said "In the middle of the night? Since when do I hire somebody to fix my vehicles in the middle of the night?" The neighbor said he thought it odd, too, but did not think to call me. I said it was a good thing that I already had a Ravelco system installed. I called Ravelco because the truck would not start and I thought it had something to do with the Ravelco. It was working fine the day before. The Ravelco rep came and looked at the truck. He discovered that the would-be thief had managed to blow a fuse. The Ravelco rep installed a new fuse and the truck started up just fine. There was no charge. Apparently although the thief had hours to work on the truck, he could not manage to defeat the Ravelco system. Several people have offered the possibility that the "thief" might have been the previous owner since he could still have had a key. Whoever it was, no permanent harm was done. However, I did have a cheap noisemaker alarm installed after this event as well so that if the same thing happened again, I would know about it and not have some guy working away in my yard all night without my knowledge! Thanks!

Hello Team Ravelco – I want to thank ya'll for making such a superior product. I had my Ravelco installed in Baytown Texas around a year ago on my 2006 Dodge Diesel 3500 Pick Up. Last week at work in Eagle Ford, Texas at the motel I was staying at for the last 6 months, some crooks tried to steal my truck, my $25,000 Lincoln Welding Rig, my leads and all my tools. They bypassed or shut off my waste of money alarm somehow and opened the doors and broke the ignition but your Ravelco stopped them in their tracks and my truck was still there in the morning when I got up. I make my living with my truck and if it was stolen it would have been a disaster for me and my family. I gave your companies website and information to many people that work with here with me. The whole thing was caught on surveillance tape but we could not make out who those bums were. Once again THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU!

Hey Guys: Just wanted to send a shout out to the Ravelco Company for protecting my ride, my trailer and my livestock. Last year I had my 2014 Silverado stolen (never recovered) and this year I was a little smarter and took the advice from a Dallas police officer and had a Ravelco Anti Theft Device installed in my new 2015 HD 3500 Silverado. It is a good thing I did because if I didn't, my new truck and trailer would have been history also. The past two weeks at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo we were showing cattle. On Saturday night we went to a concert and when we came out to the parking lot the driver's door was wide open and the ignitionwas broken out of the steering column. All the idiot lights were lit up on the dash but the thief could not start my vehicle. I also had a $900 alarm system that the thieves bypassed or “scanned” is what the Houston cops said. What a joke. I am getting my money back from Best Buy and having it removed this week. Once again thank you Ravelco - you guys rock! I guess 39 years in business shows that the proof is in the pudding!
