Theft of tractors, machinery, quads and tools from farms, workshops, sheds and vehicles is a serious problem. Tracking devices are an effective way to help protect your investment. Last month Avon and Somerset Police recovered two quad bikes within hours after they were stolen from farms in Somerset. Both bikes were found using tracking technology. As well as reducing the chance of your machine being stolen and raising the chances of stolen machinery being recovered tracking devices can also reduce your insurance premiums. A range of options are available from C&O to protect your machinery.
