Theft from work Vans

Agreed: 03 February 2018

Added by Steve Bird on 03 February 2018 at 22:02

We’ve recently seen an increase in thefts of tools from vans. Having tools stolen and vans taken off the road for repairs means lost work for tradespeople, who are often self-employed. We know it’s not always possible to empty a work van overnight, but we’d recommend it if you can. Otherwise: • permanently mark tools with your business name or postcode • keep them inside a secure storage cage or box anchored within the vehicle • set the alarm as well as locking the van • park it in a secure garage or with the doors against a wall or another vehicle to make access more difficult
