Out of sight, out of mind…
Phone, wallet, coins, keys - anything on show that looks of value will be an enticing lure for thieves. It may seem like the obvious way to prevent theft of your vehicle or its contents but emptying the contents of your van when you leave it may just save you a lot of money and time going through a theft claim. As tempting as it is to leave your valuables in the glove box, or your tools in the toolbox overnight – don’t! the classic errors are always the most frustrating to deal with afterward as they could always have been easily avoided.
Parking – always think about where to park …
Have your work colleagues moaned about having to ‘get the shuttle bus’ to walk further than they deem necessary to grab their lunchtime sandwich and crisps? As tempting as it might be to limit your chances of doors slamming into yours at Morrisons, parking far away or in an area where it’s desolated or not well lit, will only increase your chances of theft.
Always try and park in busier areas as thieves don’t like to be disturbed or seen. Parking your vehicle in a well-lit, busy area with the potential of CCTV cameras will prevent criminals from doing their worst. Although CCTV may not cover you if the theft occurred, seeing the comings and goings of people in the area will be easier to monitor.
Keep a checklist of what’s in your van
Keeping an inventory of what’s in your vehicle is a tactful idea, should the worst happen. It is also a very wise idea to keep all receipts of your expensive van items in a file, again should the worst happen, and you have to make a claim. Receipts of proof of purchase will only make your case of theft stronger. A brilliant idea that we know a lot of businesses do is watermark your equipment so If products are recovered, its known who the products belong to.
Keep staff in the loop with Ford van security
If another member of staff or another named driver is using your van, make sure they are aware of the security devices that are in addition to your ford van’s security. Making sure other drivers know the precautions you also take is indispensable. Are you a fleet manager? If so then the security of your fleet is only ever as strong as the weakest link. All your staff need to stick to the same security checks.
