UK based leasing company specialising in the lease of high value vehicles, construction plant and equipment.
We are a UK based PLC who, in the course of our business, lease high value vehicles, construction plant and equipment and other assets to our clients. These vehicles and assets are generally ‘high end’ and as a company we need to be as certain as we can be that we can recover the vehicle or asset should it be stolen or the finance not paid for.
For the last year we have used CareWhere Ltd to supply a tracking system. We use the system to maintain an overview of the locations and activity of our vehicles and assets. Our requirement was the tracking system be capable of worldwide use as we need the ability to track worldwide. The type of vehicles and assets we lease are likely to be removed from the UK and sold abroad. We want the opportunity to locate and recover, should the assets leave the UK.
We have used the system several times to locate and recover vehicles in the UK and there are examples of us locating vehicles, with the assistance of CareWhere, in Singapore and Port Said. The tracker units are covert in nature and installed by CareWhere fitters within the fabric of the vehicles. The mapping platform is simple to use with location information being clearly displayed.
The customer service provided by CareWhere is excellent, with any assistance required being given promptly and efficiently, including practical assistance out of hours.
