Plant & equipment
Theft of plant and equipment continues to rise with over £70m worth taken in 2017. Much of this is probably exported or quickly stripped down, so the best chance of recovery is within the first 48 hours.
Thieves will often use detectors to look for tracking devices but. Because ours work differently to most others, they’re less likely to be found.
NFU Mutual reported a big 12% rise in rural crime in 2018 following a rise of 13% the previous year. Agricultural vehicle theft was also up by 26% over the previous year. (NFU Mutual Rural Crime Report 2019)
In the same period, ATV and Quad bike thefts increased by 10%. As these are often kept in remote locations or barns, they make easy targets for thieves.
Over 8,000 vehicles are stolen each month in the UK, that’s over 260 a day! This forces up commercial insurance premiums and can create significant disruption businesses.
Losing a van full of tools or equipment will disrupt any business but for an SME or sole-trader, it could be far more serious.
