PLASA Fraud and Theft Prevention

Welcome to Rental Guard 

PLASA RENTAL GUARD is an alert system that has proven effective in preventing fraud and theft, and locating stolen equipment. It enables the world-wide network of professional rental companies to list missing/stolen equipment, share information about how thefts are occurring, gain intelligence about potential new customers, and report and receive information on questionable customers.

Anyone may receive theft alerts and report stolen equipment free of charge. You must register to receive the email alerts.

You must be a PLASA Member to post, receive or respond to a New Customer Inquiry.

Anyone may post a Questionable Customer Alert but you must be a PLASA Member to receive them.

Before you rent, buy, or service equipment, check to see if it has been reported stolen with a simple search. Avoid becoming an innocent victim.


If you suffer a theft, post your loss and an alert will be sent to all subscribers. Your posting will be viewed by those who may come into contact with stolen equipment such as service centers, rental houses, and brokers.

New Customer Inquiry

Questionable Customer Alert

If you’ve turned down a rental because red flags were raised, alert PLASA Members so they can use extra care if also approached.
