21 May 2019

Believe it or not, this is one of the biggest problems when it comes to recovering stolen construction equipment, machinery, etc. It becomes a matter of proving the property belongs to you. If you don’t have your logos printed all over it or some other identifying marks on the equipment thieves could claim it belongs to them. However, if you have GPS tracking on the equipment, that helps to provide proof of ownership laws in most states recognize.

Reduces Insurance Costs

In many cases, simply having GPS on your equipment and vehicles is enough for many insurance providers to give you a break on premiums. However, the solid record of swiftly recovered items is another reasons for insurance companies to smile and pass big savings on to you. It’s all about risks for them and GPS fleet tracking reduces their risks when insuring your vehicles and construction equipment.

Knowing right away greatly increases the odds of a recovery before equipment can be dismantled, painted, or broken down for parts.
