It’s a surprise that construction site theft accounts for $1 billion dollars annually with all the security measures that exist. 24/7 video security, motion detection, security fencing, anti-theft locking systems, equipment registration and more are created for this very reason so why isn’t everyone using them? “The numbers have been growing by at least 10% per year since 1996 and are expected to continue doing so.”
When you are the victim of equipment theft, it creates a chain reaction to your entire personal and business life. Your hard earned investment has been tampered with. You now have to reconfigure how to continue on with usual production while short of essential equipment needed. You’ll have to invest in rental equipment and additional insurance, as well as manpower to find what you need, follow through with reporting your stolen property and manage your daily tasks as you tackle the issue at hand. Whether you find your stolen property or not, you now have to consider your insurance going up with a reported theft. If you lacked in proper security you now have to bump that up to prevent it from happening again.
Let alone the attraction of an “easy target” and getting their hands on construction equipment, a major focus of theft is the copper and other metal material they can collect and exchange for cash. Don’t think it won’t happen to you because it can and will. Protect your investment. From personal property to rentals. Our equipment locks will deter any thieves from tampering with your equipment.
