Selwood has partnered with Sure-Track to install vehicle monitoring technology across its fleet.
Sure-Track will install its immobilisers, which are activated with a PIN code or radio frequency identification tag, in all machines it offers for hire.
As well as preventing unauthorised use or theft, the system sends real-time information on the use of the vehicles to Selwood’s company-wide management system.
Richard Bright, Chief Operating Officer at Selwood, said: “Safety and security is as important to Selwood as it is to our valued customers. Our partnership with Sure-Track will ensure that we have live, real time information on the location and use of our hired machines, prevent unauthorised use and enable our teams to schedule maintenance to keep downtime to a minimum.
“We are pleased to be using Sure-Track technology to build on Selwood’s reputation for exceptional service in plant hire.”
Selwood offers an extensive plant hire fleet from its network of regional branches in Southampton, Bournemouth, Exeter, Sittingbourne, Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham.
