Thieves know that it is relatively easy to change the identity of a trailer, and there are many organised gangs who are able to steal the vehicle from your driveway in minutes! Thieves frequently target trailers because they are quick and easy to steal and not easily identified. Sometimes the trailer is only taken for its load, e.g. yacht or personal watercraft.
The state of the art Datatag Trailer system consists of tiny electronic transponders or tags, as well as our Datadot® microdot security system including Datatag DNA a true forensic chemical DNA and a pair of tamper evident visible ID plates to deter the thief.
Datatag is designed to covertly and overtly mark your trailer for life. Once thieves see the Datatag warning decals on your trailer they usually go looking for an easier target as they realise that being caught red-handed with Datatagged property means they will be prosecuted.
There are no annual fees when fitting Datatag and when you come to sell your trailer you’ll find that the Datatag registration can be transferred to the new owner.
