Sure-Track intervenes in stolen skip operation

Sure-Track received a call from one of their customers based in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. AR Demolition, a specialist in demolition, called to report the theft of one of their Industrial skips. The skip was fitted with a Sure-Track MT3 tracking device. The device is designed specifically for the recovery of stolen company assets such as skips and Plant machinery.

Following the phone call Sure-Track switched the unit into alarm and began the monitoring process. Sure-Track analysed the area positions reported by the tracker and communicated them to the Sure-Track finder on foot. Sure-Track positioned the skip in Wolverhampton, 37 miles from where it was stolen. Andrew Thompson, director at AR demolition, believed that due to its size, the only possible way of transporting the skip was with a roll on roll off lorry.

Sure-Track and Andrew set out on foot to search the area. Andrew’s knowledge and experience combined with the RF technology utilised by the Sure-Track team led to a successful recovery. Shortly after the skip was located hidden in amongst similar bins and skips in a yard.

Andrew Thompson assisted with local authorities and identified himself as the owner of the skip. The skip was then recovered to a safe location and was back in use after lunch.
