It is a little-known fact that throughout 2015 approximately £1 million worth of plant and agricultural vehicles were stolen every single week in the UK.
Our state-of-the-art plant security units have been installed by over 2,000 companies in the UK alone, and we have worked with a wide range of construction and agricultural companies.
With that in mind, here are a few of the types of tracking that we offer businesses:
There’s no doubt that plant vehicles and machinery are more susceptible to theft than most other types of vehicle.
Due to this we have worked alongside construction companies to ensure that our plant security devices are some of the best on the market.
What’s more, as part of our plant security services, each business is allocated a dedicated account manager to help make the most of our products and services.
Our state of the art tracking devices can locate a vehicle anywhere in the world within two metres.
Having placed tracking devices in more than 23,000 units in the UK, we have experience in working with vehicles of all kinds, preventing a great many vehicle thefts.
In fact, 95 per cent of untracked plant thefts are never recovered. That said however, most tracked vehicles are actually recovered within 24 hours of being taken.
According to a report released in 2016, only nine per cent of agricultural vehicles are recovered after being stolen – amounting to 6,000 stolen vehicles between 2008 and 2014.
This means that between those years over £30 million of equipment has been stolen at the rate of four units a day.
Our packages enable farmers and agricultural businesses to keep track of their vehicles and assets using state of the art easy to use and understand systems.
What’s more, our tracking systems also provide businesses and individuals to immobilise stolen or lost machinery with the touch of a button from a computer, phone, or handheld tablet.
Throughout our career we have helped many construction companies look after and maintain their cranes through our advanced crane tracking equipment.
Used by some of the largest and most respected businesses in the UK and Europe, our tracking devices can be removed and refitted to other vehicles.
This means that even if you replace a vehicle with a tracker installed, you do not have to buy another, as you can simply switch the device between the machines.
It’s no secret that dumpers and rollers are commonly targeted by thieves, often late at night.
Our immobilisation units mean that if a dumper or roller was to disappear, it can be instantly immobilised and located within minutes.
Another feature of our tracking systems is that they can help business owners monitor the health of vehicles.
Using a range of analytics, businesses are able to monitor features such as engine temperatures and fuel economies so that they are able to maintain the health of their fleets and equipment before small issues become large problems.
