Does having a tracker on plant work? We have just heard about another case where a chipper was stolen and despite numerous calls to the police the owner watched it travel down the M2 to Dover, through Poland and it now lives in Ukraine. All that traveling and without it’s jabs!
Currently most of our insurers don’t insist on a tracking device. This is surprising as it seems likely to be an amazingly cost-effective way to limit their exposure. The only problem might be the response from the police.
Apparently, another dubious use for a tracker is to ‘make sure’ staff are working and not sitting in a car park having a coffee.
Has anybody had a stolen item of plant ‘returned’ after it was tracked and if so where was it found? Or you have caught staff having a crafty break? Let us know your thoughts and experiences with trackers here on Facebook.
