Sure-Track's latest recoveries

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.

Helping to reduce the cost of plant and construction theft

A recent survey conducted for the Chartered Institute of Building identified that 92% of their respondents in the construction industry are affected regularly by theft, with over 21% of these revealing that theft takes place on a weekly basis from their sites.Theft of construction equipment runs at over £2 million per day in the UK and only about 5% is ever recovered.
