We recommend a three strategy approach to help secure your van against tool theft

Jeffrey Scott @ September 7, 2018 2:02 pm

A question that we often get asked is 'What's the best lock for my van?' and our response is always to ask some questions about the van make / model & year of the van and what the van is used for and by how many different people

Our advice is typically to implement a three strategy approach; if possible for the vehicle and within the budget of the van owner rather than concentrating only on what lock is best:-

1) Secure the manufacturer's weak point (i.e. to prevent the most common break in attack for that make / model / year van) and this varies from one van model to another

2) To add an additional layer of security (Deadlocks, surface mounted locks or slamlocks)

3) To have an alarm with tool / cargo area protection (Sometimes we can upgrade your manufacturer's factory fitted alarm or you will need a complete alarm and the additional tool / cargo / area protection)

We have made bespoke packages for the most commonly broken into van models; where we are able to offer the three strategy approach within a reasonable price and these are called our 'Platinum Packages'.

We also have packages that address the 1st two strategies, but where we do not have a factory alarm upgrade option to add tool / cargo area protection to the manufacturers alarm and these are called our 'Gold Packages'. 

There are also some packages that include a more heavy duty lock and these are our 'HD Gold Packages' 

Don't worry if you can't see a package for your van make / model / year in our 'Van Security Packages' section, simply contact us and we will give you options to suit your vehicle and needs.
