According to the Health & Safety Executive, the most common cause of serious injury and fatality in the farming industry relates to the movement and overturning of agricultural vehicles. If that’s not enough reason to worry, NFU also confirmed that in March 2017, the cost of farm theft claims doubled in March 2017 compared to the previous year.
Seriously worrying statistics. And there’s no clear sign that that figure is going to be improving.
Your vehicles are your livelihood – and if they’re not looked after, neither are you.
Living in the heart of the SW, the farming community is the cornerstone of our county – and so we appreciate that the financial hit that a farmer takes due to the loss of an agricultural vehicle, or an insurance claim against an injury, especially during a peak season of harvest and production, could, quite literally, break their entire annual income – with devastating knock-on effects felt long after the vehicle has gone.
Because of that, Motorsparks is proud to offer security and vehicle monitoring solutions that help in the fight against agricultural crime. Whether you’re looking for an immobilisation solution, a vehicle tracking system that tells you when and where your vehicle is being driven, a camera that records how your vehicle is being driven, or anything else that may help you feel confident about the safety of your equipment, we’d love to help.
We’re Beaminster-based – and have worked in the telematics business for over 20 years. We’ve worked on anything from a bike to a buggy to a boat and several different types of industrial plant machines and cranes.
