UK construction sites are increasingly being targeted by thieves and fraudsters who recognise the financial value of plant and machinery. The UK has suffered a spate of ATM thefts in the last couple of years, where stolen JCBs and forklifts have been used to ram-raid the cash machines and make off with the rewards. Surrey and Hampshire alone reported 14 ram-raids in 2018, it’s reported that the construction industry lost an estimated £800m in 2017 through the theft and vandalism of plant and machinery. Larger items of plant such as excavators and JCBs can also prove a lucrative haul for criminals. Indeed, excavators proved to be the most expensive claim on average, often stolen from contract sites outside of working hours or whilst hired out.
