Tool theft is on the rise in the United Kingdom! With many falling victims to the latest “Peel and Steal” craze.

What is “Peel and Steal”?

This is a technique used by perpetrators to peel back the rear doors of a van by bending the door outwards using their bodyweight to steal the items inside!

Tools can be expensive and having them stolen from your van can be a nightmare. More so, costs incurred to repair the damage done to the van in the process. Plus, cost of your loss of business income! Without tools, you won’t be able to work and would need time to gather funds to replace your work tools.

Here at Cube, we strongly believe prevention is better than cure!

That’s why we want to share with you our 3 tips on how you can keep the tools in your van safe!

Park your van in a secure place

Avoid parking your van in dark remote areas. Always park your van in a well lit and busy street, if there’s CCTV cameras even better. This will deter perpetrators from targeting your van as they don’t want to be caught red handed!

Up your van’s security with tinted windows and alarms

Yes, it’s time to increase your van’s security! Dark tinted windows and alarms are likely to discourage perpetrators from choosing your van. A blaring alarm is sure to catch the attention of passers-by!
