Van Alarm System

Keeping your Van Secure with Van Alarm Systems

If you haven't stared at the empty parking space where you'd left your van and felt shock, anger and perhaps even guilt, then you're lucky – the RAC has said that on average 30 vans are stolen each and every day.

But it’s not just vans that are stolen – it’s also their contents: according to research done by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles the cost of tool theft from vans works out to £550/day in downtime alone – yet, they say, 57% of van drivers still leave tools and equipment in their vehicles overnight.

And not even half of all new vans, the RAC continues, are produced with an alarm fitted as standard – even though they may be equipped with remote locking and not a specialised van security deadlock or using any proper van immobliser.

Deterring Thieves by Fitting Van Alarm Systems

Recent figures show that almost eight in ten trades people have had tools stolen at some point and that, once your van has been broken into, thieves are likely to return. Thefts of vans or their contents have risen fifty percent in four years and are most likely to occur in London or Birmingham where the cost of damage repair and tool replacement averages £2,000. The Metropolitan Police reports 12,000 van thefts or burglaries over 2020-21 so it is a serious problem for London-based businesses.

Although modern vans might be thought to be more secure, most vehicle thefts now result from key or system hacking. And factory-fitted alarms, which only activate after doors have been opened, are failing to deter thieves or alert the public, so more effective van alarms are needed.

Van Security Alarms that are Really Effective

Having secure locks fitted to your van is essential but these will only delay thieves, especially if they have time to work on breaking in. And they will have plenty of time with a factory-fitted alarm that only activates after doors are forced open. By then, it’s too late to protect the contents.

What you really need is an alarm system that activates when any tampering with the van’s locks occurs. This will:

  • deter thieves because they can no longer work undetected
  • prevent damage to doors and locks
  • significantly reduce the risk of your vehicle or its contents being stolen.

A high quality and effective alarm that activates before access to the van is gained is the best method of safeguarding your vehicle and its contents. Combine this with secure locks and you have an overall system of protection that will give you peace of mind because you know your property is safe.

Make it hard for thieves to achieve their aims and you won’t become a crime statistic. More importantly, you’ll save money, avoid frustration and be able to keep working.
