Increase in Van Thefts   ()

 

Over the last few months we have seen a rise in the number of vans being broken into and their tools stolen.
A few simple tips to help secure your van and contents include: 
Remove tools from your van when left over night 
If removal of tools is not possible, fit a tool safe and ensure it is fully secured with good quality locks.
Engrave or mark tools and their boxes with your postcode and house number.
Fit additional locks. 
We have attached a flyer giving some basic crime prevention advice on van security. Hopefully all you van owners will find this useful.
If you don’t have a van yourself but know someone who does please feel free to pass the flyer on to help them protect their property.
