Van Essentials Blog POST

Vans are full of property needed to keep tradesmen working and without these essentials, people will struggle to support themselves. Vans get broken into every 23 minutes and with this increase in crime more precautions can be made to make sure you can keep your possessions, your van, and your business safe. Selecting how you promote your brand Branding A heavily liveried van is a good advertisement for your business but can also be detrimental to giving a thief an insight on what property you might be holding. Adopting plain white vans with a solid security will be an effective way to hide what’s inside and stop theft temptation. Fit the correct security equipment There is a variety of options available with popular solutions that make it harder for thieves to break-in for example slam locks. A slam lock is a device that automatically locks the vehicle door immediately after it is shut, without requiring any operation by the driver. Look at which will be the best way to protect your property and make it difficult, noisy and time-consuming for thieves to get in. Making it as difficult as possible, will put thieves off. Protect the keys Modern locking systems make it difficult to break into many vans through the locks, so thieves often target the keys, ask yourself whether they’re in a secure place and if not find a suitable one. Keep them secure and out of sight at all times, don’t make it easy for them. Parking Making sure your vehicle is in a secured location is critical in theft prevention. Storing it in a garage will make it twice as hard to break in and will put off thieves. If a garage is not available, then park it close to an occupied building or conspicuous location. Storing in a garage will also reduce van insurance amplifying its benefits. Receive the right advice Using a fleet of vans for business purposes is an expensive investment. Installing basic security measures can run up thousands of pounds. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, but there are certainly several steps that you can take to decrease the risk of falling victim to van crime.
