NUCA Partners to Stop Equipment Theft

September 28, 2010

The National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) entered an agreement with the National Equipment Register (NER) to cut the cost to NUCA members trying to combat the growing problem of heavy-equipment theft. NER's HELPtech allows equipment owners to register machines online for a few dollars per item per year. NUCA members will get a 20 percent reduction in registration fees.

If a machine is stolen, its owner or responding law enforcement officials can report it to NER. Then law officers, used-equipment buyers, and customs agents can check NER stolen-vehicle roles if they encounter a suspect machine.
