Equipment Theft Solutions
At A-Plant, we take equipment security very seriously; and we do all we can to ensure that the equipment you hire from us has the very latest security technology fitted, helping to avoid the cost and inconvenience associated with plant theft which is a major problem in the UK.
With almost £100 million of plant stolen from construction sites each year, plant is more likely to be stolen than ordinary vehicles. Hiring equipment with fitted anti-theft devices can significantly reduce your insurance premiums.
The majority of our new plant equipment, such as compressors, dumpers, mini-excavators, telehandlers and generators, comes with A-Trak fitted and CESAR datatag identification as standard. Currently, over 7,000 pieces of equipment are fitted with A-Trak.
A-Trak is an innovative GPS satellite tracking system and fleet management tool (created by security specialists Enigma Telematics), that helps you avoid plant theft and have complete control over your hired equipment. Using our Extranet system, you can see online exactly where every piece of equipment is located, and gather 5,000 critical pieces of information.
