Tool theft from vehicles increases during the dark winter months

Recent findings using police data by Direct Line Business revealed that tool theft increased during the dark winter months (October 2021 - March 2022).

Shockingly, the research found that tool theft from vehicles was 20% higher over the autumn and winter of 2021/22, compared to the spring and summer of 2022.

Protecting against peel and steal attacks

The ‘peel and steal’ attack method is at an all-time high.

Criminals apply pressure to the van’s side load area or rear barn doors before pulling open from the top using their bodyweight.

This not only reveals the van’s contents, but also causes considerable damage.

Unfortunately, most vans are vulnerable to this attack method. But there is a solution…


Our recommendations:

Protecting against puncture attacks

Career criminals have found several ways to override a van’s central locking system.

From cutting the van’s expensive central wiring loom, to puncturing the outer bodywork of the van, most of these attack methods are extremely quick and very inconspicuous at the time.

A full range of shielding solutions are available to help protect these vulnerable areas…


Our recommendations:

Protecting against opportunist van crime

Even leaving your load area unlocked for a couple of seconds gives opportunist thieves enough time to make off with your precious cargo.

This method of attack is a lot less destructive than the previous two but will have just as much impact on your business or livelihood. If you are regularly in and out of your van, then there is a chance you may forget to lock the door.

So, why not try one of our convenient solutions to dramatically reduce this risk?
