Trailers are a very valuable item for the farmer and a very sought after item for the thief. Protect your trailer when it is parked up. We can supply or fit an alarm or a tracking device.

Mark your trailer with your postcode now! We provide postcode punches free of charge for 3 days. Conditions apply… Refundable deposit on return of full kit of letter and number punches.


Don’t forget that you can get your trailer marked with your “farm code” at any of the Rural Crime Prevention events that are run on a regular basis and don’t forget to sign up for the Rural Text Scheme. 


The Rural Text Alert System has been set up specifically for members of the farming community. The aim of the scheme is to help reduce the number of thefts reported from farms and also to help farmers to be on the “look-out” after a theft has occurred.

If you sign up to the system you will receive live text messages of relevant incidents in your area, for example:

  1. the description of a stolen trailer
  2. details of a suspect vehicle believed to be involved in a theft

The text messages will be sent out as soon as possible after the incident has been confirmed by police.

You are then encouraged to


police and report any relevant information you may have about incidents that have been circulated to you.

Please note that your details will be kept confidential and will not be given to any-one else. 

* The Rural Text Alert System is supported by the District Policing Partnerships and the Ulster Farmers Union
