Protect Against HGV Fuel Thieves or not?

Do We Protect Against HGV Fuel Thieves or not?


aide automotive have been marketing and selling HGV / Commercial Vehicle fuel protection products for 20 years, we see increasing negativity on using anti siphon devices to protect the diesel fuel tank on a truck.


A recent remark was “anti-siphoning devices are a waste of time, you fit them and the bandits drill your diesel tank”


We agree anti siphon devices are not the be and end all to protect a commodity like HGV fuel, but what is?


To protect against any theft the owner has to create security / obstacles to prevent the thief from achieving their aim, instead of negativity to available protection aids and just ignoring the problem, look at the best way to help secure your property! Ignorance will inevitably breed thieves to repeat the act and look for easy targets!


In our 20 years marketing HGV diesel protection we have never had a call saying, “they drilled my tank!” We do have, “they just ripped out the sender unit” or “they just smashed the ASD”. So, the question is, how much is this commodity important to you? To lose a full tank for many is important to protect, also the follow-on inconvenience. So, if you think they will attack the tank, install an alarm, if they siphon fuel while a driver is parked, an Anti-Siphon Device? But overall a starting point is the “padlock” of an Anti-Siphon Device on the filler neck for many….

 
If not, then further protection aides like theTruck Tank Alarm “TankGuard” or Sender Unit Covers to protect the costly rip out of this item.


With this we have a SPECIAL Sample offer of the FuelKeep Anti Siphon Device!

Take a Sample at delivery cost only to prove the durability & quality of this Superb low cost ASD!

HGV Fuel Theft, A Problem Over The Festive Period

HGV Fuel Theft, A Problem Over The Festive Period


Fuel theft from commercial vehicles is a common problem over the festive period, because vehicles are left idle while firms close down for the Christmas Break. This makes them a lucrative target for thieves looking to syphon fuel from the vehicles.

Here at aide automotive we’ve found that for this reason sales of our fuel theft devices have increased in the run up to Christmas, quoted Matt Burke Sales Director,

“We always see an increase in sales of our fuel theft devices in the weeks before Christmas. Most companies want to protect their vehicles from thieves looking to syphon off fuel whilst a business is closed down and nobody is on the premises. We have a range of anti-siphon devices that have the perfect solution for this problem. Investing in one of these devices allows business owners the chance to relax and enjoy the Christmas break, safe in the knowledge that their vehicles are protected from fuel theft.”

An Truck Fuel Theft Prevention device is extremely cost effective, for a small investment it could save a company thousands in terms of stolen fuel and vehicle downtime.

Anti Fuel Theft Devices are relatively cheap to purchase and capable of withstanding regular and prolonged use.

Fuming Over Stolen Truck Diesel?

Hauliers have been advised to be on their guard after a load worth £18,000 was stolen from a truck in Northamptonshire last week.

Thieves broke into the lorry, which was parked in an A14 lay-by overnight on Wednesday 19 February, and took around 1,000 bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin.

The thieves are believed to have used a van in the raid, which occurred between 8pm on Wednesday and 5am on Thursday 20 February.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

North Yorkshire Police are urging hauliers to keep their vehicles properly secured overnight after a truck was stolen in Leyburn earlier this week.

The Scania truck with a curtainsided trailer was taken from Moor Road, sometime overnight between Monday 12 August and Tuesday 13 August.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police was unable to confirm which company operated the truck and hauliers in the area seemed unaware that the theft had taken place.

Police have advised that vehicles are kept in locked compounds when not in use and are fitted with GPS or tracking devices, enabling operators to locate vehicles if they are stolen.
