According to the RAC, van theft is on the rise in the UK, with an average of thirty vans stolen every day since 2016 – costing roughly £61.9 billion to businesses in lost tools and other items.
Comm-Ply strongly recommends all fleet operators have secondary locks fitted to their vehicles – on purchase. Vehicle locks are not impossible to surpass. Supplementary, stronger locks hinder a thief’s attempts and are a deterrent. Likely locations for vehicle break-ins and thefts are car parks and where vehicles cannot be seen or heard during the break-in.
Comm-Ply fit a wide range of locks and other security devices to reduce the likelihood of break-ins, including tracking systems, alarms, immobilisers and tool security boxes. As with all our services, bespoke solutions are available as many fleet operators cannot choose where vehicles are left unattended.
