A detailed list saves hundreds in insurance

Inland Marine is the type of insurance rider that covers tool theft in the US. There are two types of Inland Marine policies, stated and non-stated. Non stated policies are more expensive because there is no information provided to the insurance company about the specific tools that company is insuring. PowerTool Safe gives you the tools for substantial savings on Theft Insurance. Built in reports allow you to customize spreadsheets that get you better rates on Theft Insurance. You can instantly email these reports to your Insurance Agent. Imagine the savings you are setting yourself up for year after year with PowerTool Safe.

When a builder whose equipment is insured takes a loss, that builder shares their loss with the insurance company. When that builder has a full detailed list of their equipment, they can report their losses, and insurance companies know exactly what tools they are insuring, and now have the documentation they need to help recover stolen goods. This offsets their loss. The original insured builder will be reimbursed the actual cash value of the tools and will still have to come up with the difference between the retail value of the new tools and the ones that were stolen. Their losses have been buffered by Insurance.

Find Out Before It's Too Late

Information is power. Sharing the right information with the right people can have a massive impact on an entire industry.

Your jurisdiction probably requires you to report the serial numbers of anything you purchase and log them into a system, then wait a few days to find out if they were stolen. The problem is you've already handed the perp cash for the stolen item and when the police show up and recover that item you're out the money you paid to the thief. They're taking that right out of your bottom line.

When our founder had the contents of his construction trailer stolen, he eventually found them at a pawn shop. Without PowerTool Safe™, everybody loses except the thief. We're going to change that.

What if there was a way to find out if the goods were stolen before you purchased them?

You can try out our Stolen Tools Search. This is a free service to the public. Tools stored in PowerTool Safe that are going to be sold can be marked "For Sale." If you check a brand, model, and serial number and it comes back as For Sale you can be sure that you're not buying stolen merchandise. If they've given permission, you can even see the profile picture of the rightful owner and compare it to the person standing in front of you.

If the tool is marked as Missing or Stolen then you'll know right then. If a police report has been filed you'll get the name, email, and phone number of the officer on the case. Wouldn't it be great to watch the perps that have been costing you money led away in cuffs?

Our public stolen tool search has a limit as to how quickly you can perform searches. If you sign up for a free account with PowerTool Safe and are verified as a Pawn Shop owner or employee, you can perform unlimited searches.

Let's Catch Some Bad Guys!

Tool theft harms the community. One of the more frustrating aspects of tool theft is that law enforcement often is able to recover stolen tools, but there's no way to match that to a rightful owner. That's why the recovery rate for stolen tools is only 25% -- often the tools are found but there's no way to match them to the owner. PowerTool Safe can help with our Stolen Tool Search. Just enter the Brand, Model, and Serial Number of the recovered tool and we can put you in contact with the rightful owner.

We're working to provide lots of capabilities to law enforcement to help track down stolen tools. Many times citizens will be victims of theft but don't bother to fill our a police report because gathering all of the needed data just isn't feasible. They don't have pictures of their tools, serial numbers, and receipts to prove they own it. PowerTool Safe™ customers have all of that at the click of a button.

Another issue is that not all victims fill out police reports. If their tools weren't insured they often won't bother because of the paperwork. But with PowerTool Safe, a tool can be marked stolen with the push of a button. By making theft incidents easier to report, more people are likely to report their losses, and tool recovery rates will increase.

Let us know how we can help. We want to #StickItToTheBadGuy!

Even retailers are affected by tool theft

Good Record keeping is key to small business success. Unfortunately, builders build. Record keeping is not their forte. When a builder experiences theft, one of the first places they turn to is the retailer in hopes that they may still have the original purchase records of their stolen tools. This can be a lengthy drain of time on store staff that PowerTool Safe is working hard to eliminate.

Theft costs the construction industry over $1 BILLION every year. Imagine a world where every power tool sold is instantly entered into PowerTool Safe™ to protect your customers, support law enforcement, engage pawn shops, protect your customers, and your community.

PowerTool Safe to the Rescue

You'll provide a much needed service to your community while reducing your costs and improving your bottom line.

Now is a good time for a career change

All right, you dimwitted, five-finger discount derelicts. Consider this your warning. You should seriously consider a career change because we are are going to make your life miserable. It is our goal to give every customer the tools they need to #StickItToTheBadGuy.

See these trailers? See the "Warning, Contents registered with PowerTool Safe™?" Sure, you could waste your time breaking in and stealing everything, but you won't be able to sell any of it.

The pawn shop you take them to can check our database and see that they're stolen. They'll just call the cops while you're standing there like the idiot you truly are. If you dump the tools somewhere and the police recover them, they'll be able to get them back to their rightful owner. Want to sell them on Craigslist? The cops have already been notified and we've given the tool owner the ability to search for their tools across several websites. That buyer that's hot to purchase your tool? They're probably just an undercover cop.

When you see this sign, know we mean business. When you mess with the contents behind this sign, know we are coming for you. Because to us, tool tracking doesn’t end until you are behind bars.

It's going to be hard to sell anything you steal because anyone can do a Stolen Tool Search and learn whether the tool they're about to purchase is stolen. Now, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder, you might be thinking to yourself that you'll just check to see if the tools you've stolen show up in our database. Go ahead, we'll hand your IP address and whereabouts over to the police.

Yeah, your career just took a bad turn. We're going to #StickItToTheBadGuy and you're the lucky one.

Integrate With Ease

Are you a potential partner that would like to give your customers the security of having their possessions protected by PowerTool Safe™? Online retailers, SaaS applications, or even just large enterprises can integrate with our system seamlessly through our open public API.

For example, an online retailer can add a few simple API calls to their checkout flow and automatically create a new PowerTool Safe account for their customer, add tool purchases, upload receipts, perform lookups, and even update specific fields such as serial numbers. Your customers will no longer be forced to contact you to look up receipts and serial numbers when they need to recover their information, they'll have everything at their fingertips in their very own account. You can even upload the entire purchase history of a customer so they've got a complete record of everything they've purchased from you in their account.

Another use case is a SaaS application that serves the construction industry. Automatically create accounts for your customers, let them update their own tools, and then (with the customer's permission) query for data on those tools. Perhaps you have an asset management module, but you want to offer the capability to store and maintain images, purchase history, receipts, etc. Plus your customers will get the peace of mind of theft prevention, police reports, etc.

How it Works

  • Sign up for a developer account. You'll be issued a developer key for both the sandbox and the production system.
  • Add the API calls to your systems. Each customer you add must have opted in for an account. The API is rate limited to 6 calls per minute, contact us if you need a higher bandwidth.
  • Start adding accounts. Accounts that you've added can be queried and updated via the API as long as the customer has also opted in from our system to allow you that access.
  • And that's it. Let's get started!

    What are you waiting for?

    You needed this last time your tools were stolen — don’t be caught unprepared again!
