Lifescape Custom Landscaping, founded by Jeff Veliquette, is a landscaping company based in California. The company specializes in a wide range of landscaping services, including landscape design, maintenance, and installation. With a fleet of various pieces of equipment, including track loaders and skid steers, Lifescape Custom Landscaping serves both residential and commercial clients in the region.
The Challenge: Equipment Theft and Security
One of the challenges Lifescape faced was the security of its valuable equipment. Track loaders and skid steers are important tools in the landscaping business, and their theft can result in substantial financial losses. Jeff Veliquette, President of Lifescape, recalled a specific incident where equipment theft brought this issue to light.
“I had a piece of equipment that was stolen, and we tracked it down, which was amazing,” Jeff said. “They stole a walk-behind tractor called a Dingo, which is worth $25,000. After that happened, I didn’t have any problem paying the monthly tracking fee. Paying a little a month helped me save $25,000 by getting that tractor back.”
Jeff outlined how easy it was to locate the stolen piece of equipment since it was in the GPS Insight system.
“I just logged in and clicked on the Dingo, and I could see exactly where it was parked at an apartment complex,” he said. “I called the police and had to prove it was mine. We got it back, and ever since, I haven’t once complained about paying this fee.”
