Would you leave £200,000 (of anything) in an unattended vehicle?

Theft from vehicles and sets accounts for more than half of all equipment theft.
Theft is an Industry Epidemic and here are some guidelines to assist you to reduce this growing problem.

Theft is an Industry Epidemic

Incidents reported to Rental Guard (the US and now international anti theft/fraud site) in 2014-2015:
 - Over $8 million dollars of stolen equipment (est. value)
 - Incidents in 23 cities worldwide, and in 13 U.S. states
 - 32 incidents in Los Angeles and New York alone
 - Losses from a single incident exceeding $280,000


Theft hurts everyone.

It disrupts production schedules, affects insurance rates and rental rates, and reduces availability of hard-to-replace equipment.

Our industry can no longer afford to be a soft target and you can help.

What You Should Know

Police Recommendations

If you suspect that a piece of equipment you are working with is stolen, check the RENTAL GUARD website or Xhire, the UK-only anti-fraud site and contact ESTA. Reporting stolen equipment and searching the database is free. If equipment is stolen from your shoot, have the equipment owner report it to RENTAL GUARD or Xhire. You’ll be doing them and the industry a favour.

This is the website I read about Prophet Abulele and contacted him to help me get my ex boyfriend back to marry me during the month of june this year and I have come back here to post about him. Prophet Abulele will help you solve your problem no matter what you are going through. My name is PATRICIA from Canada. Posting about a spell caster is very strange to me because I never believed i will be able to say that I was helped by a spell caster in bringing my ex boyfriend back to me after 5 years of no contact. I read about Prophet Abulele from other websites and contacted him to help me and in less than 48 hours my ex boyfriend called me and I was happy that he wants to get back to me. We met on Friday and he proposed to me,... It was the most beautiful ring. Please everyone out here, Contact Prophet Abulele to solve your problem for you and make you happy with your relationship that is hurting you. Love is the best feeling ever experienced. Email Prophet Abulele at or directly on whats App him +2349022406159.
