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!

Trailer Red Line Lock To Secure A Trailer While Parked Or Yard Stored

Trailer Susie Lock is an excellent tool to manage a trailer fleet within a depot or off site.

If you need to manage secure trailers then a Trailer Red Line Lock is an ideal cost effective tool, when is a trailer is off the road, using a number plate style VOR sign is less than ideal, this has no protection of the sign being thrown away and the trailer used.

A recent theft of a trailer in Scotland with £300,000 of wine might have been prevented with a simple low cost Susie Lock.

Thieves have made off after stealing a trailer from a haulage yard.

The vehicle was parked in the R T Keedwell Haulage Yard on Uddingston’s Bellshill Road when the theft took place.

Between midday on Saturday 17.08.13 and 8.20am on Sunday, the suspects entered the yard and hooked their own cab to a trailer containing pallets of wine. They subsequently drove the trailer out of the yard.

Police Scotland said the retail value of the alcohol was approximately £300,000.

Detective Sergeant John Cameron of Hamilton police office appealed for witnesses to come forward.

He said: “I would urge anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious on Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning either at or near the haulage yard to come forward as they may have information that is vital to this enquiry.”

Commenting Matt Burke said “The Trailer Lock will stop easy movement of a trailer parked on or off site, locking the red line means a trailer brake system can not be activated and the trailer will move with the brake on. An excellent low cost product could save trailer theft for any transport or haulage company.”
