Track down on Theft
Nearly 100,000 plant and agricultural machines are stolen a year in the UK. It is widely recognised that this costs both the owner and the insurance company time and money and is upsetting for everyone involved.
Tackling the rise in machinery theft
Trackstar, Trafficmaster’s stolen vehicle tracking for plant and agricultural machinery solution helps combat the risk of machines being stolen following the theft of the keys.
If a machine is moved without the keys, a silent alert is sent to Trackstar’s Secure Control Centre and tracking is immediately activated. The Control Centre liaises direct with police authorities across the UK and Europe, providing them with the speed, location and direction of the stolen vehicle.
Trackstar is fully accredited by Thatcham, the UK’s insurance industry body, as a stolen vehicle tracking system. This means that the product meets set standards in its hardware, functionality and all of its processes. Not only that but Trackstar’s installation engineers also have to be independently vetted and registered so that they are qualified to fit covert security systems.
Already proven and trusted by prestige motor manufacturers, Thatcham approved Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking, which is monitored 24 hours a day in the Trafficmaster Control Centre, was recently a supplier of stolen vehicle tracking services (Olympic Venues) to the London 2012 Games. Stolen vehicles automatically alert the Trafficmaster emergency desk operators who then monitor them remotely and inform the police of their whereabouts for fast and efficient recovery.
