Auto wrecking, repair and scrap yards face many security challenges with theft and damage.
Some of these yards host a variety of blind spots and dark corners that can be tough to secure properly. It’s a desirable target for theft since it’s impossible to be everywhere at once and many items, large and small, hold value.
Not too long ago I visited a yard whose owners mentioned they had a car stolen off the lot just the morning before I arrived. They were frustrated since they already had an existing system in place and it wasn’t the first time this has happened.
Bottom line, the outdated and bare boned system they had opted for failed their expectations miserably and it was costly mistake.
With no fencing around the rear of the property, and with it being an industrial area, these thefts could have easily been disguised and unfortunately for them, were undocumented.
