HOW CAN VIN CHIP HELP YOUR TRAILER SECURITY?

VIN CHIP is a technology led theft detection and layered forensic security system, designed to change the future of trailer security and reduce losses from theft.

Protecting your trailers with the best anti theft devices will deter criminals and support the Police to quickly detect and recover them back to you. It will reduce disruption and inconvenience to your business or leisure activities as well as cost, for example replacing your stolen asset.  It is the most innovative and advanced Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) trailer security system available – the best by a distance.

The system was introduced to combat leisure vehicle crime in 1998.  It has evolved to become the leading security and recovery system for the industry and since being introduced, theft of caravans has fallen by 90%. 

VIN CHIP is now available to new sectors, including the trailer industry, where theft is a major cause for concern.

HOW VIN CHIP's TRAILER SECURITY SYSTEM WORKS

Our trailer security system is based on RFID theft detection technology which has been used by police for over 25 years because:

  • It uses the most advanced long -range RFID chips available which can be read from unrivalled distances of up to 30 metres, when combined with our unique software on handheld scanners.

  • VIN CHIP makes it quicker and safer to identify assets, as it removes the need to gain access to trailer with no risk of revealing the location of the chip.

  • Your VIN or unique alphanumeric code will be registered on our in house Secure Registration Database, which is ISO27001 certified. It has been expertly handling security asset details for over 25 years, enabling the Police to instantly identify the lawful ownership.

  • Our ISO 9001 Quality Management certified contact centre is available 24hrs a day, 365 days a year, supporting you and protecting your trailers. The experienced team are specialists in assisting the police in the recovery of high value assets.

  • VIN CHIP’s trailer Forensic Security provides secure QR codes, tamper proof security labels and hidden micro dots to deter theft and prevent reidentification or cloning for resale by organised criminals.

TRAILER THEFT COSTS £2.9M*

Trailer thefts have increased by a staggering 66% in 2022 compared to the previous year according to the NFU. Thieves are using modern technology and innovative solutions to steal all types of trailers. Conventional security devices are only having a limited effect on determined criminals.

The alarming upwards trend in thefts is hitting users hard. Both business and leisure owners are struggling to find practical and affordable replacements due to supply and economic factors.

What is the problem?

Criminals are more determined than ever before. Despite visual security markings, when someone is determined to steal something, they will. This is why our multi-layered approach covers three crucial elements of vehicle theft.

Prevention is the first stage but should the unimaginable happen, other elements of the VIN CHIP anti-theft solution will come into effect and when a suspicious vehicle is investigated, law enforcement have the training and the tools to quickly and easily verify true ownership and return the asset to the legal owner.

“The thieves behind this latest surge in quad theft are slicker, more determined and more prolific than before”

‘’the thefts we are seeing are hitting farmers twice as hard because of the difficulties getting replacement kit.”
