An increasing challenge for farm and heavy equipment owners and operators. According to the National Crime Information Center, there were more backhoes, Bobcats, bulldozers, cranes and front end loaders stolen in 2004 than in any previous year, and those increasing costs are being passed directly to you.
Unlike personal auto theft, where vehicles are often recovered when a thief has finished a joy ride or crime spree, the enormous resale value of heavy equipment leads to a very low recovery rate – just 8% – and rising insurance costs. Industry surveys track the costs of heavy equipment theft at nearly $2 billion per year.
As a heavy equipment owner, you can’t afford to risk your valuable equipment, and California Ravelco is pleased to offer our customized heavy equipment installation to you as part of our service, or we can train your mechanics so you can install them yourselves. The Ravelco fits gas or diesel engines, with either electronic or conventional ignition systems, and is the only anti-theft system that has never been defeated.
California Ravelco offers fleet rates and flexible installation schedules. Contact us today for a free estimate on how the Ravelco Anti-Theft Device can protect your valuable equipment.
My dad told me to get a Ravelco for my new 2002 Chevy Avalanche, but I had a high tech tracking device installed in my truck for an additional $600.00. On a recent family dove hunt in South “Texas (only 1 mile from the Mexican Border), I drove to meet my dad. We stayed at a Holiday Inn just outside McAllen, Texas. The next morning I could not believe my truck was gone! I parked in a well lit area right next to my dad’s Suburban. The thieves also tried to take my dad’s truck but his Suburban was still there. I will be first in line for a Ravelco System.
During the ten years that our company has been using the RAVELCO security system for our vehicles, I am delighted to be able to report that never have we had a vehicle stolen. We’ve had several attempts in the City of Houston. I can honestly say that you have saved us thousands in potential losses of vehicles and product plus time and aggravation. Your security device has been so reliable and successful in our vending trucks that we have installed them on our entire fleet.
We had our entire fleet fitted with your Ravelco system. We tried 6 different types of systems before yours. We even tried one that kept the truck running but it would shut down if someone other than the owner tried to drive it. Sounds good on paper but what a piece. We had nothing but problems. The Ravelco is so simple to use and our drivers can finally have a good nights sleep, knowing that in the morning their rigs will still there.
Thanks to the Ravelco, for saving our three Bobcats and two CASE 580L front end loaders (backhoes). Having a rental company for the last nine years we have had all kinds of equipment stolen. In can honestly say that in the past year (since we installed the Ravelco) not one vehicle has been stolen from a jobsite. I am sure your Ravelco system has stopped the thefts.
