Protect your assets with RS Connect

Your assets are one of the key elements needed to complete jobs on time and to the exact requirements. Having a reliable fleet of plant vehicles and machinery to call upon is therefore important. Sadly, asset theft has been increasing. The Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) states that every year, more than £100 million+ of plant is stolen in the United Kingdom.  

As well as the financial implications of replacing your vehicle, Plant operators will also have to deal with missing tight deadlines, idle crews, and increased insurance premiums. Plant hire companies also must think about their assets being stolen to commit fund other criminal activities. In some cases, it’s not as easy to replace vehicles. With the global chip shortage, companies may find themselves waiting up to or more for a replacement vehicle.

Plant Theft Set To Increase

According to the Construction Equipment Security and Registration (CESAR), plant theft is set to increase. 24 hours after a vehicle is taken, it’s likely that the asset will be in a container – ready to be shipped abroad. Anti-theft devices are a must for businesses looking for ways to reduce plant theft. With RS Connect, you have a one-stop-shop for installations.

Tackle Fuel Theft From Plant

Fuel theft is a prevalent concern for many plant fleet operators and construction companies, affecting their bottom line and disrupting operations. The recent ban on red diesel has only exacerbated this issue, making fuel an even more attractive target for thieves. Vehicles with large fuel tanks such as tractors, excavators, and telehandlers are particularly vulnerable due to their high fuel capacity.
