NTI issues truck security warning

Australia’s leading truck insurer, NTI, is urging operators to be extra mindful of vehicle and trailer security.

NTI's CEO Tony Clark says year on year data shows that November commonly sees an increase in reports of malicious damage, and theft from inside the vehicle.

“It’s unfortunate, but there are people out there looking to take advantage of hard-working Australians,” Mr Clark said.

“We urge all operators to be considerate of where they leave their vehicle unattended and of vehicle security in general.”

NTI recommends taking the following security precautions:

  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • Try to plan your rest stops at designated, populated sites.
  • Lock doors and fully close windows whenever the vehicle is left unattended, eg. fuelling up or bathroom stop.
  • Store valuables and electronic devices away from being seen through windows.
  • Check the security of your load during every rest period to ensure nothing has been tampered with.
