Friday evening we received a call from a customer who was on holiday to inform us that she had received an unauthorised movement alert on one of her assets. It was evident that a Quad had been stolen.
This enabled Customer relations Nicholas Harvey to quickly check the customers account and begin tracking the Stolen Quad.
Nick quickly contacted the local police department and gave them pin point directions to the Stolen Quad, which had been hidden in a small woodland near Abergavenny.
The police quickly moved to the location and found the Quad abandoned behind some bushes, a recovery company was called and the Quad was taken to storage until the customer returned from their holiday.
This is the fifth stolen Quad that the team have recovered in the past two weeks.
We urge all customers to get in touch and make sure that the security alerts are set up to the relevant contacts.

Find out below how Tim Rothwell Transport benefitted from our intelligent alerts system
“At approximately 1925 hrs on Sunday 2nd November I was alerted by the Plant-I Tracker to the unscheduled movement of one of our vans. I immediately advised my MD who lives within a mile from our parking area. I then contacted the local Police and was able to track the vehicles progress until it was recovered within 30 minutes less than 5 miles away. Having Plant I trackers installed has saved us the loss of one vehicle and also a potential loss of three others”
