Heavy Plant Thefts Have Hit New Peak

Image: wiangya / FreeDigitalPhotos.netTheft of machinery of all types have risen dramatically.  Plant on construction sites are found to be easy pickings as in many cases they are not secured and in some cases, left on a trailer ready to be driven away by thieves.  Plant is shipped abroad very quickly and often found to be in Eastern Europe, Dubai and other Middle Eastern Countries and even as far away as Australia, where the theives usually make a very large profit. When hired in plant is stolen, the hirer has to make a claim under their insurance and also pay for hire charges to the time the insurer settle the claim.  Plant is usually hired under CPA (Contract Plant Association) conditions where the insurance is based on the hire charges paid.  The policy can also be extended to cover loss of hiring charges.  When hiring equipment, it is important to make sure that anti theft devices are fitted to the equipment.  This enables the Police to locate any equipment that goes missing.  Good site security also plays an important part in discouraging thieves from stealing your equipment. It is wise to contact TER which is the national database for registering and recovering types of equipment.
