Shut the door on van crime

16 August 2017

Theft of tools from vans is soaring across the UK, so it’s time to shut the door on crime.

Van burglary rates have risen by more than two-thirds in the past two years. This is bad news all round, but if you’re a Small to Medium-sized Enterprise (SME), it’s particularly worrying.

Our Security Operations Centre Manager, Omar Abu-Rish, talks to The Telegraph about how you can clamp down on this alarming trend, which is hitting trade vans hard.

Six tips to reduce risk:

  • Remove tools from your van overnight
  • Keep tools out of sight in your house (not the hallway)
  • Park your van in a well-lit area
  • Consider fitting a van cage
  • Chain and lock high value tools in your van (during the day)
  • Seek support tailored to your business
