How To Cut Construction Theft Using A Professional Portable Surveillance Camera System

Construction theft is literally and figuratively big business. Construction theft is widespread and nothing new. Builders often start jobs figuring that they will end up a few saws or many two-by-fours short. Construction theft is really big business that even rivals illegal mafia businesses. Construction theft may be a cost of doing business, but owners can take steps to keep the costs down.

Construction theft is also a big target for thieves that is currently a $1 billion market for theft or equipment and building materials. “Professional thieves see construction theft as a low risk, high reward theft opportunity,” said Richard T. Open doors and a long holiday weekend are a bad combination when it comes to construction theft, and that’s something central Missouri plumbing learned first hand when copper disappeared from the site of a new Kohl’s in Jefferson City.

Thefts at homes under construction, such as this one in a subdivision near Leesburg, cost billions yearly. Thefts of all types from construction sites costs the building industry about $5 billion per year, tacking on about 1 billion every year. Theft has a huge economic impact for builders, remodelers, and buyers, so it’s crucial to quash it on owners construction sites. Not surprising, more than 75% of jobsite theft occurs at night and on weekends.

Equipment that cannot be fenced should be disabled at night and on weekends. Equipment chop shops and theft rings are on the rise throughout the U. The thief got away with $20,000 worth of tools, supplies and equipment. Although there is no sure-fire way to prevent construction equipment from being stolen, there are some measures companies can take to deter thieves from sneaking through the cracks. Savvy thieves steal large construction equipment because it’s easier to start than cars.

What makes matters worse is a stolen piece of equipment or material can shut the job down temporarily.

Insurance rates are lower if the owners do more to protect their equipment and higher if they have many losses, he said. And  Contrary to the belief of most employees, the insurance carried by the company does not cover “pilferage” of tools and equipment. Contractors, equipment dealers, insurance companies, equipment manufacturers are all at a loss when job sites are vandalized or equipment and materials are ripped-off.  Nearly one-third of theft reports are filed on Mondays when workers arrive on sites to find equipment missing. Not surprisingly, the study found that popular equipment makes popular theft targets.

Construction thefts, which are rarely solved, vex authorities, delay construction and jack up builders’ costs and insurance rates and, consequently, home prices.

This is precisely why equipment owners need to have a solid action plan to protect their equipment and their businesses from theft.
