Norfolk based rental company, Barford Van Hire and Sales, recently suffered from the theft of one of their hire vehicles but were able to recover it rapidly thanks to having a GPS tracker installed.

Barford Hire had heard through the hire industry grapevine that there has been an increase in reports of local stolen vehicles, therefore decided to implement the ABAX Vehicle Tracking system and help secure their fleet.

Barford recently found out the importance of a GPS tracking system when they had one of their Mercedes Sprinter Luton’s stolen during the night in Norwich. Thanks to the ABAX GPS tracker installed, they were able to quickly recover the vehicle 150 miles away in Kent.

We were able to track the vehicle in real time and relay the position to the Police control room over the phone, which was absolutely brilliant.

Robbie Dunderdale, Rental Assistant said: “We were able to track the vehicle in real time and relay the position to the Police control room over the phone, which was absolutely brilliant. Everything on the ABAX Triplog interface is clearly displayed and easy to use when operating the system in a pressured situation.”

Robbie also said: “My favourite feature of the Triplog has to be the ability to print off a detailed report of a chosen vehicle’s movements. This includes accurate dates, time and positions, allowing us to help the police with the further investigation once the vehicle was recovered. We would definitely recommend ABAX to other businesses!”.
