Tool Protection Solution introduced to the Reset Membership Benefit Package

Reset Compliance Systems Ltd (Reset) and Tool Watch have joined forces to tackle tool theft head-on and provide its members with the best possible means of protecting their tools and equipment.

Tool Watch is an easy to use, online solution to record, protect and report all essential tools, and is the only anti tool theft website that is endorsed and actively used by the police.

Furthermore, stolen tools can be reported at the click of a button and to save even more time, police reports can be downloaded and sent to insurance companies to speed up the claims process, enabling tradespeople to get back to work.

Alan Brett, Managing Director and Co-founder of Tool Watch has experienced first-hand what it is like to be a victim of tool theft having had £8000 worth of tools stolen from his van, and the challenges faced when reporting and evidencing proof of ownership, including laborious communication with both his insurance providers and police.

Alan said, “The reality of tool theft has become all too common place and is on the rise. I know all too well the impact this type of crime has on a business”.

According to a study carried out by Honcho, a van break-in also puts the average tradesperson out of work for 30 days and costs them almost £6,000 in missed jobs, over and above the cost of replacing tools and materials[1]. A value cannot be put on the stress caused.

Speaking about the partnership, Alan goes on to say, “I am delighted to be able to provide Reset Members with a means of safeguarding their tools and their livelihoods via the Tool Watch website, as well as offering them the reassurance that by working together we are all proactively helping in the fight against tool crime”.

Reset Members will receive an exclusive 20% saving on Tool Watch’s annual subscription plans comprising of three great value packages covering anything from 5, 50 or 500 tools.

Gary Duce, Managing Director of Reset said, “Reset’s Membership covers a multitude of contractors in all sectors, all of which rely on their tools, day to day, therefore Tool Watch is a very relevant addition to the Reset Membership Benefit Package and one that all our members will benefit from significantly”.
