Top tips to improve van security

Van Security - Protect yourself from van theft

Did you know, a van is broken into every 23 minutes in the UK? With a huge market for second hand tools, the contents of a van can be a goldmine for thieves, which is why van security is a crucial topic to address.

The impact of van theft is massive. Many van owners suffer from a loss of work, which in turn can lead to an impact on their business reputation. This teamed with the stress of replacing stolen goods, dealing with insurance claims and rising premiums, leaves van owners and businesses in a troublesome position. Trades people are calling it an "epidemic" that is destroying their livelihoods.

Bobcat Mini Excavator - Stolen / Recovered!

UK construction sites are increasingly being targeted by thieves who recognise the financial value of plant machinery.

Smaller items of plant equipment such as mini excavators and generators are often stolen from contract sites outside of working hours or whilst being hired out. Consequently, many plant hire firms are now investing in additional security measures such as on-site cameras, perimeter fences and tracking devices to keep their vehicles safe from theft.

The theft of high value machinery can be seriously damaging for small forestry companies. These types of crimes often involve significant damage to the property where the machine is stored, as well as additional losses such as chainsaws, climbing kits and other vital equipment. To compound this issue, the remote rural locations where forestry equipment is stored, results in elongated police response times.

Two Stolen Excavators Recovered in Bournemouth

With the demand for construction equipment on the rise, crime levels are increasing also. Building and construction sites are perfect targets for thieves, with expensive tools and machinery left lying around after work hours, it's an open invitation for would-be thieves. 

The impact of theft on construction and plant hire firms can be catastrophic. Not only is there a high cost in terms of both time and money spent replacing this expensive equipment, but without the right tools, firms are simply unable to work.

Despite all this doom and gloom, Sure-Track has operated at a 90% recovery rate over the last 14 years.
