With Christmas and New Year’s day both falling on Fridays, the potential for theft of equipment is especially high, according to the National Equipment Register (NER).

NER urges everyone to be watchful of suspicious activity involving equipment at farms, rental facilities, dealerships and construction sites. 

This includes: trucks parked at rental yards and dealerships that do not belong to the company–especially box vans, U-Hauls and enclosed race car hauler-type trailers; gates left open at facilities and job sites when it’s clear the site is closed; evening, late night or early morning activity inside a yard, construction site, farm or rental store; and heavily and hastily loaded rental company or dealer trucks on roadways.
