Short recovery times result in minimal damage to equipment. In 2014, of all equipment recovered using the LoJack® Stolen Vehicle Recovery System, 56% was recovered in twenty-four hours or less after being reported to the police, with 5% recovered in less than one hour. This quick recovery time has resulted in minimal damage for equipment managers outfitting their fleet with a LoJack® System. The vast majority of equipment stolen and recovered with a LoJack system was undamaged.

Conversely, a 2014 Cygnus Business Media Research Study showed that 60% of the responders who lost equipment due to theft did not recover it until one week later or longer, and it was returned damaged 92% of the time.
