Rise in Equipment Theft - Secure your Equipment.
Equipment theft has increased with police stating there is a syndicate targeting Trades people. We have 2 clients in the past few days contact us for quotes, as they have had equipment stolen and we have heard of other cases.
This ranges from a single machine theft to vehicle and machinery. Yes, they have taken the lot. One client passed on that the police stated that they believe a syndicate is targeting Tradies in the following areas:
Hawthorn, Carnegie, North Caulfield and Glen Iris.
The time of the day has been between 3.00 - 4.00pm. This is when trades people are packing up to finish the day, so secure your machinery. I have had one client who has lost the lot. Thieves stole his van with his equipment in it. The van was later found burnout in another location.
If you are aware of any theft activity let us know so we can pass it on to everyone in our industry. The better we are prepared the harder it is for these thieves to get away with it.
