If you think thePlantfiles is just for Plant & Equipment – think again!

The Plantfiles is not just for Plant and Equipment, it is also a Registration Scheme and theft deterrent system for:

Bicycles, Motorbikes, Surveying Equipment, Boats, Outboard Motors, Lawnmowers, Quads, Caravans & Camper Vans etc.

Basically, if it has a serial number then it can be included in the Plantfiles. By registering your equipment on the system, it will serve to cause ‘Grief for the Thief’ if he/she decides to steal it.


Register now, as later might be too late!

Gather & Record Retails of your asset

Take for instance, you have a bike. The bike might look exactly like the next bike, but up close and personal, it is very different. This system allows you to record all information about your bike, including elevation photos, Identification frame and component numbers and unique markings.

If you have modified your bike in any way, simply record the modifications, and very soon your bike will become very different from all other bikes that at first glance look the same. You can add videos, service records, safety checks, etc.

Report your asset if it Stolen from you

If your bike is stolen from you, simply contact the Gardai/ Police, fill in the Theft Report Form, enter the crime reference number, and the system will do the rest. The forensic file will help them to positively identify your bike.

In the meantime, the system will email all registered network members in the biking community informing them of the theft.

Recover your asset

The Biking community will be able to help recover your bike by entering any of the recorded numbers onto the Website by clicking on ‘Check ID’ and if any of the numbers entered match with your bike numbers, then the viewer will be told that the bike has been reported stolen. The Free Smartphone app (coming soon) will allow the GPS position of the viewer’s phone to be recorded, (if permitted by the user) and this will be sent to the Bike owner and Police, and Gardai.

Verified ownership can be established by entering a PIN number, which when entered correctly, will display a photo of the Registered owner. Failure to enter the correct number will automatically notify the owner of the GPS position from where it is currently being viewed.
