Transit van recovered for Scout group

Sure-Track's latest recovery

Transit van recovered for Scout group

 

As the Cub Scout motto says, you should always 'Be Prepared', which is just what a Scout group in the South East ensured when they fitted their minibus with a Sure-Track MT3. 

Earlier this week, Sure-Track received a call from a concerned Patrol Leader who discovered the troops White Ford Transit Mininus, worth £15,000, had been stolen. The Sure-Track bureau assured the Patrol Leader that we 'promise to do our best'... and that's exactly what we did! 

The finder was dispatched in the very early hours of the morning and arrived at the area of interest by sunrise. The finder picked up a radio frequency signal just off the M25. 

As the finder pursued the signal, the bureau received a movement alarm, meaning the vehicle was being driven to another location. 

The Sure-Track finder quickly rerouted and headed to the latest signal area. After searching for about 15 minutes the finder found the van, another great result for Sure-Track!

The police were called and responded quickly, the customer was informed.

It was recovered by the Patrol Leader using their original key after it was cloned (no damage to the vehicle).

The reg plates had been changed and the scout stickers had been removed from the sides of the minibus.

The police escorted him to the nearest Halfords to revert the plates to the correct Reg.
 
Later, the Patrol Leader called the office to express his thanks.

Stolen Generator recovered in Bolton

Sure-Track's latest recoveries

Stolen Generator recovered in Bolton

Building and construction sites are perfect targets for thieves, especially when work has finished for the day and the site is empty.

In particular, we have recently noticed that generators are becoming an increasingly popular target for thieves. A stolen generator can be sold relatively quickly for a substantial amount of money. 

Our latest recovery was for a long standing customer, whose £20,000 generator was stolen overnight from construction site in the East of England. 

After receiving a notification from the customer that the generator had been stolen, Sure-Track put the MT3 tracking and recovery unit into alarm mode.

When the unit provided a approximate location of the generator in Bolton, Sure-Track's experienced finder made his way to the scene. 

After a difficult search of a large rural area, and with the support of the police, the stolen generator was recovered from a travellers site and returned to the relieved customer.

With a 91% recovery rate, Sure-Track are encouraging owners of generator to fit an MT3 tracking and recovery device.

Sure-Track recovers a Bobcat Excavator within Four Hours

Sure-Track recovers a Bobcat Excavator within Four Hours

A recent survey carried out by the insurer Allianz Cornhill has revealed that more than £70M worth of construction and plant machinery was stolen from sites across the UK in 2016. It estimates that the UK construction industry is now losing over £800 million a year when other costs associated with plant theft are taken into account.

Thieves are attracted to plant machinery because of the generally very low recovery rates (less than 10%) compared with motor vehicles (55-60%). This is because plant machinery has few identifying marks that can be easily seen and lack of registration documents mean it is difficult for the police to identify stolen plant and return it to the owner.

Owners of plant machinery have been urged to step up their security efforts to help address this growing problem. With a 91% recovery rate, Sure-Track are encouraging owners of plant machinery to fit an MT3 tracking and recovery device.

Read on to discover our latest theft recovery within the plant and construction industry. A Bobcat Excavator, stolen from a plant hire company in Leicester.

Theft Recovery at its best!

Sure Track Recoveries - March 2016
We've had a busy start to the year with a number of exciting new contract wins, and a whole host of vehicle recoveries from both the Plant and Leisure industry, totalling upwards of £45,000 in value. 

Take a look at a few of the highlights below of some of our latest theft recoveries. 

15th January 2016

A straightforward recovery for our highly skilled finder network. Thwaites mini 1 tonne dumper recovered in Staffordshire for a nationwide plant hire and manufacturing company.  

2nd February 2016

After being alerted by a national plant hire company on the theft of a Hamm HD13 Roller, Sure Tracks intelligence quickly discovered the vehicles location in Huddersfield. Another textbook recovery!

22nd February 2016 

Now this was a difficult find! One of our demolition customers had a 40 yard skip stolen. We picked up signals pointing towards a scrap merchants in Lancashire. The police were called but as we entered the property the signal completely disappeared! We can only assume it was hidden underground or put into a completely sealed steel container. Sure Track put the unit onto our emergency watch setting and 2 weeks later it came back into alarm (just down the road from the original location) and were able to recover this 40 yard skip for our very happy customer!

4th March 2016

There's no better feeling than reuniting a Sure Track customer with their pride and joy. And this find was just perfect! After a worried local caravan enthusiast alerted us on the theft of their Elddis Affinity Caravan, we quickly sent our team to the rescue. Resulting in a quick recovery in Leicester, not far from the Sure Track headquarters! 

What did all of these vehicles have in common? They were fitted with a Sure Track MT3 tracking device! This is a small wireless device that combines GSM/GPRS monitoring with close range Radio Frequency. Our customers subscribe to a service that includes the use of highly trained finders who respond to the theft, locate the missing item and then liaise with police to ensure safe and legal recovery.
