We are delighted to announce that all new Debon Tipper and Box Van Trailers will be added to The Equipment Register – TER as standard.
Since 1995 TER has been conducting due diligence theft and finance checks for the public and dealers. These checks have resulted in more than 3,390 stolen equipment recoveries, valued at more than £14.9m, for UK equipment insurance companies, businesses, and individuals.
The annual theft of equipment continues to be a major problem for the trailer owners as well as insurers. Estimates of the cost of theft vary, but the Home Office and insurers believe it to be approximately £150m each year in the UK.
TER assists the police and law enforcement agencies with the identification and recovery of stolen equipment. Their aim is to reduce equipment theft by keeping accurate records of it’s ownership. By doing so will enable TER to help return stolen items back to the owner in the case of theft.
New Debon Trailers
All newly purchased Debon Trailers will now be registered on The Equipment Register (TER) as standard.

What to do if your Debon Trailer is Stolen
As soon as you are aware that the trailer has been stolen, contact the police to report the crime. Once you have notified the authorities, contact TER who will then alert police, law enforcement agencies, dealers and auction houses with the trailers details to help identify your trailer should it be recovered.
