A. We supply a different range of locks that are vehicle & door specific as most vehicles have their own unique vulnerability. Our core products are thatcham accredited and cost £150.00 excluding VAT for an installation.

Q. What kind of thefts are most common with vans – thefts of cargo or theft of the vehicles themselves?

A. Although there is a problem of theft of the vehicles, theft of the cargo load area is a much greater problem. Locks 4 Vans provides solutions for both types of attacks.

Q. Is the problem getting worse and do you offer solutions for both types of theft?

A. In the last 16 years of trading we have unfortunately seen a rise of the amount of attacks carried out with these types of attack methods becoming a lot more aggressive. Locks 4 Vans can provide products to help stop the vehicle from being stolen and to protect the cargo.

Q. Can you give me some general tips for keeping my vehicles safe from thieves apart from the locking solutions?

A. With tool theft on the rise, securing your vehicle with locks is a top priority but there are other considerations to think about when it comes to securing your vehicle. Make sure your vehicle is always locked when unattended and think about where you park – preferably in lit up areas or if your van is parked at home to invest in CCTV.
