Opportunity and value come together on construction job sites all across America and thieves are making the most of it. Stealing heavy equipment is a thriving crime. The total value of stolen equipment each year in the United States is estimated to be between $300 million and $1 billion. The range is so large because of incomplete theft data, but any number you pick within that range represents a big problem.
Construction site theft is happening so often because construction equipment and machinery are relatively easy to steal and easy to get rid of in a shadowy worldwide black market. Furthermore, each piece of equipment generally carries a high profit margin for the successful thief. If that isn’t incentive enough, thieves get help from the unlikeliest of quarters: the contractors they victimize. Because many heavy equipment owners and renters are not taking the steps they could to safeguard their equipment, they are benign accomplices to the crime. That sounds harsh, but law enforcement and insurance industry officials tend to agree on this point: equipment owners or renters are falling short of doing all they can to prevent theft.
