Businesses and individuals are susceptible to theft of trailers and equipment. Let’s face it. It’s a major problem across the US. Stealing equipment that is already on wheels is like shooting fish in a barrel. Could it be any easier? Do you think the small chain and lock will deter any thefts? They can break the chain in seconds.
To combat the theft problem you have to think differently. Technology can be a huge help. GPS tracking for equipment is a powerful tool. An equipment GPS tracker is effective, affordable, and exact. GPS and Track offers innovative tracking solutions with no monthly fees and zero contracts.
Over the past year, the team at GPS and Track has heard several crazy stories about recovering stolen trailers and equipment. The most common recovery is in the thief’s backyard or a vacant lot. The equipment is typically ditched and then the thieves come back a couple days later to grab it.
Trailers have been stripped and repainted. However, the GPS tracking is typically still on it. This makes recovery easy. Can you imagine having equipment stolen then going to your phone or computer to see its exact location? How easy is that? A quick phone call to the police and your stolen equipment will be quickly recovered.
With GPS tracking, it comes down to power source. It’s always best to utilize a power source if you have one. That would usually be the battery on the equipment. It’s a simple 2 wire hookup. This will also give you features like real time GPS tracking, geo zones, and speed alerts.
If a power source is not available, a battery powered GPS tracker is ideal. GPS tracking with a 5-year battery life are available. The units are called the TTU-720.
