In 2006, Big Rig Tractor trailer theft was at an all time high when reported to the National Crime Information Center. Organized crime rings are the driving force behind big rig equipment and cargo theft.
National statistics show that this is a huge problem and it is getting worse. Reports to Insurance Services Office, Inc., show an increase of up to 20% in the value of big rig trucks every year since 1999. They show theft as the most common cause of loss for the big rig trucks. The most worrying statistic for owners, operators and insurers is that as little as 10 – 15% of stolen big rigs are ever recovered.

HEAVY EQUIPMENT THEFT ON THE RISE !
Backhoes, Bobcats, Bulldozers, Cranes and Frontend Loaders are being stolen and taken across the borders to other countries where our insurance companies will not even bother look for them . . . and who pays for this? You do when your insurance costs sky rocket!
Heavy equipment often has little physical machine or site security, and is valuable and is easy to sell. A car theft will be discovered hours, if not minutes, after the crime. A Heavy Equipment theft on a Friday night might not be discovered until Monday morning. Equipment owners with larger fleets or multi-site operations may not discover the theft for days, weeks or, in some cases, months. If an item is recovered, an arrest may not be made. Where an arrest is made, a conviction may not be secured. Even where a conviction is secured, the penalty is likely to be light.
