HPI checks ex­tended to new sec­tors

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE -

HPI is ex­tend­ing its range of ve­hi­cle pro­tec­tion to in­clude con­struc­tion and agri­cul­tural equip­ment.

To­gether with Datatag se­cu­rity, HPI is adding the Ce­sar prove­nance check to pro­vide an in­stant online re­port re­veal­ing a ma­chine’s po­ten­tial “hid­den his­tory”.

All that is needed to con­duct a check is the ma­chine’s Ve­hi­cle Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Num­ber, reg­is­tra­tion plate or Ce­sar mark. Checks can be made any time at the click of a mouse.

Putting the scale of the prob­lem into con­text, around 4,000 con­struc­tion and agri­cul­tural ma­chines worth more than £150m are stolen ev­ery year in the UK; the to­tal cost of equip­ment theft is up to £650m ev­ery year.

One quar­ter of ve­hi­cles checked by HPI are sub­ject to out­stand­ing fi­nance.
