Top tips to prevent a quad bike from being stolen

Immobilise Make sure you secure or immobilise your quads when not in use. Remember to remove keys when leaving them unattended.
Location Try to avoid leaving quads unattended in fields, especially near roads. If you have to leave them, try to park behind other machinery or equipment and out of sight.
Security When you’re finished for the day, lock quads away in your most secure outbuilding or garage. If this isn’t possible, ensure it is behind a locked gate to make things more difficult for thieves.
Track and trace Keep a record of any chassis or serial numbers. If the worst happens, the more information you can provide, the better the chance of recovery. Consider using security marking kits to mark your property, and think about fitting a tracker or immobiliser.
Register online Websites such as and are useful international online databases to record serial numbers for a wide range of vehicles and property.
