Van security

Post by rich g on Mon Aug 28, 2017 4:58 pm

What security do you use ? I would like a fairly inexpensive method of securing the van,would a wireless system be suitable or do you have to do some drilling to fit various forms of locks ,I know there are companies such as Van Biz that do a very good job,but a bit on the expensive side.

We use the standard, Peugeot fitted immobiliser and an Autowatch 695 alarm system (which is described as a Thatcham 2-1 upgrade).

We also make a point of double-locking the doors, as this certainly makes entry / exit through the doors much harder.

Do you keep your van at home. I do and I have a very good wheel clamp, a steering lock and an inside alarm which you find under garage alarm on eBay. Any movement in the van and the alarm goes off.   up!

The alarm may get you a small discount on your insurance premium, some companies may insist on one, but I have always found them a pain. The only person who responds to the alarm is the owner and often not even him/her.
Modern vehicles come equipped with very good immobilisers which is why thieves  now burgle the house for the keys. Our vehicles aren't usually targeted by joy riders but professional criminals to sell on break  for parts or perhaps disguised and used by alternative living community members.
