WATCH: #StickOneUpToToolTheft

ARMD, the platform designed to combat the effects of tool theft and protect the livelihoods of tradespeople with tech and smart insurance, is encouraging the trade to #StickOneUpToToolTheft in a new social media campaign – raising awareness of the epidemic of tool theft in the UK.

Tradespeople can take part by registering a FREE ARMD account so they can start logging their tools. They will get an ARMD sticker in the post and if they display the ARMD sticker on their van and share it on social media tagging two friends and including the #StickOneUpToToolTheft, #ProtectYourTools and #getARMD hashtags, they get another £20 store credit to spend on tools.

“So far the campaign has been picked up by some of the trade’s key social influencers and is really catching fire,” says Stephen Holland, Co-Founder of ARMD. “Who doesn’t love a sticker and a money off the latest power tools? But the serious message behind the campaign is to raise awareness around the devastating effect tool theft can have on the livelihoods of trades up and down the country. ARMD exists to help the trade better protect themselves.

“If the worst does happen, we can get you back to work almost immediately with fast, self-service digital claims. A recent ARMD user who was a victim of tool theft was back on the tools within three days of the claim being made. Normally that can take anything up to five weeks – we have transformed the process to the trades’ advantage.”

ARMD allows you to quickly and simply claim digitally through an easy-to-use App and website if you have recorded them in the tool inventory – which is free to use. Essentially there are four simple steps:

Record the tools you own, how much they are worth and any receipts of purchase. This will make it so much easier to claim if a theft occurs.

Protect yourself with van security products, such as van vaults.

Insure yourself with a dedicated tools policy that will enable you to replace what you have lost. You can insure your tools for as little as £56 a year with ARMD.

Replace your tools quickly thanks to a quick insurance payout and get back to work.
