Tool theft is on the rise!

According to the manufacturers and insurance companies, vehicle theft is on the decline.

However one crime has clearly taken its place, and that is tool and equipment theft from vans, and there’s no sign of it slowing down either.

In the last two to three years, theft from vans has increased by 54% with a van in the UK broken into every 23 minutes.

Trades people and businesses are losing tools and equipment, often worth many thousands of pounds when they fall victim to tool theft.

This has ramifications for both direct and indirect costs to the business.

Direct costs can be tool replacement, while indirect costs can be downtime of work with loss of income, plus potential increases of motor insurance premiums as the damage thieves cause can be substantial.

Protecting your van by upgrading the physical and visible security beyond that which the manufacturer fits could be one of the most important business decisions you can make.
