Thompson and David Jackson
Jackson of Prestige Horseboxes, says: "We have joined forces
with Kiwi-chip-it to offer our customers peace of mind following
an upsurge in horsebox thefts. Customer care is our top priority
and this together with our outstanding after sales service, is just
one of the extras that we pride ourselves on."
horseboxes, which are hand-built to order, will now include a number
of hidden microchips, while a disc placed on the outside warns off
would-be thieves. In the unfortunate event that the warning is ignored,
the vehicle can be traced back to its owner via a database which
can be accessed by the police.
is an exciting development for horsebox owners," says Phil
Cantwell of Kiwi-chip-it. "Thieves are far more likely to go
for an unmarked vehicle than drive away a microchipped horsebox,
which can be easily traced."
