Understanding the Scope of the Problem

Construction equipment theft is a growing problem in America. The NICB reports that construction equipment thefts have increased by 50% from 2013 to 2019, resulting in over $1 billion in losses. This trend is likely to continue as the demand for construction equipment increases and the value of the equipment rises.

Why Construction Equipment is a Prime Target for Thieves

Construction equipment is an attractive target for thieves for several reasons. Firstly, it is often left unattended and parked in remote locations, making it easier for thieves to steal without being detected. Secondly, construction equipment is valuable, and thieves can sell it on the black market for a significant profit. Lastly, construction equipment is typically not equipped with theft-prevention devices, making it easier for thieves to steal.

How to Protect Your Construction Equipment

Protecting your construction equipment starts with understanding the risks and taking proactive measures to reduce the likelihood of theft. Here are some practical steps you can take to protect your equipment:

  • Secure your construction site with a fence and gate.
  • Use bright lighting to deter thieves from entering your site.
  • Install a security system that includes cameras and alarms.
  • Mark your equipment with a unique identifier, such as your company name or logo.
  • Use GPS tracking devices like LoJack to monitor the location of your equipment.
  • Train your employees to recognize and report suspicious activity.
  • Keep a detailed inventory of all your equipment, including serial numbers and purchase dates.
  • Store your equipment in a secure location when not in use.
  • Insure your equipment against theft and damage.

What to Do If Your Construction Equipment Is Stolen

If your construction equipment is stolen, the first thing you should do is contact the police and report the theft. Provide them with a detailed description of the stolen equipment, including the make, model, and serial number. You should also provide the police with any identifying marks or unique features of the equipment. This information will help the police identify and recover your stolen equipment if it is found.

In addition to contacting the police, you should also notify your insurance company of the theft. Your insurance policy may cover the cost of replacing your stolen equipment, depending on the type of policy you have.

How to Recover Stolen Equipment

Recovering stolen construction equipment can be challenging, but there are several steps you can take to increase your chances of recovering your stolen equipment:

  • File a report with the National Equipment Register (NER). The NER is a database of stolen equipment that is used by law enforcement agencies and insurance companies to identify and recover stolen equipment.
  • Monitor online marketplaces and auction sites for your stolen equipment.
  • Check with local scrap yards and recycling centers to see if your equipment has been sold for scrap.
  • Hire a private investigator to assist with the recovery of your stolen equipment.
