How VIN CHIP can help protect your business from rural theft?
Heavy equipment isn’t like cars which are littered with traceable ID features, quite simply, if the chassis number and identifying features are removed, it is generally accepted that the machine will remain unidentifiable
Our RFID Technology has been used by police for over 25 years because:
- It uses proven technology with superior long-range RFID which can be read by Police scanners – with no risk of revealing the position of the chip.
- We provide overt and covert markings to deter theft and prevent re-identification or cloning for resale by organised criminals.
- Your VIN and unique alphanumeric code will be registered on our Secure Asset Register enabling the Police to instantly identify the rightful owner.

We have specifically designed a bespoke anti-theft and recovery solution for agricultural equipment and machinery to disrupt rural crime activity.
What’s at stake? £1000's in lost revenue, major disruption to productivity and your peace of mind.
"The theft of vehicles, plant and agricultural machinery can have an absolutely debilitating impact on local businesses and on people’s livelihoods."
“it is the ID process which is usually problematic for them. Heavy equipment isn’t like cars which are littered with traceable ID features, quite simply, if the chassis number and identifying features are removed, it is generally accepted that the machine will remain unidentifiable”.
Why target Agricultural equipment?
Organised criminals are targeting farms not only for high value tractors but also ATV’s, GPS Systems and other equipment which are easily portable.
Low risk of being caught
World-wide market due to central driving position
Large scale global demand for agricultural machinery
Law enforcement generally have limited knowledge about the ID of agriculture machinery
Machinery is often left in the open or in poorly secured buildings
Can be moved in full view without attracting suspicion
Most vehicles today have many traceable components making them relatively easy to identify. Unfortunately, with agricultural machinery and equipment, it is much more complex.
Criminals change the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) making it difficult to establish the original VIN and preventing easy identification of the stolen item. As a result, the police often have no choice but to return the machine to the person from whom it was seized. So, it’s easy to understand why many victims of crime believe their machine was never recovered
