Thieving Scumbags



Recommended Posts

Just set up my business, going really well....then some scumbag comes along and steals my pure freedom water trolley, ew3200 high pressure washer, tools and satnav, devasted to say the least. I am in the West Yorkshire area, so if you hear of any scrotum trying to sell them on let the police know. Both brand new, pressure washer only used twice....Lock you stuff up!!!!

Get onto your insurance company and get replacement.

Depends if the loss was insured for business tools or not Hotwash.

My understanding is If stolen from a van not locked up but tools were insured then most insurance companies will not pay out.

If stolen from a shed or garage most domestic policies do not cover tools for bussines on a standard home contents insurance policy.

Keep your eye on eBay David, they may try and sell the gear on there. Specially if the seller is from Yorkshire!

 

Mate of mine had his motorbike nicked. He was on the lookout for another exactly the same. Saw one on eBay, went to look at it and it was his!

All my equipment is insured and itemised on the policy, if van is unlocked you get nothing. I can work locked up.

Insurance has an excess off £500, about a grand lost and the inconvenience, thanks for the support lads...gear was chained up in the van, and for the police, not even coming round..got an incident number from some fella in a call centre..JOKE...just hope the insurance pay out, but still down bigtime!!!!

Feel for you, I had my car stolen, ladders were chained to roofrack, all my Trad gear was in back of car.

Never saw any of it again.

At the time I had no garage, so on street parking was my downfall.

 

I don't leave any gear in van overnight.

Hoses, ladders go in garage, which is alarmed.

Pole goes in house.

 

Hope things pick up for you over the coming weeks.

A simple trigger alarm would run fine from a small hidden battery. Just a thin wire wrapped round the gear. If circuit breaks then alarm goes mental. Could hide a siren in the engine bay.

 

In fact im going to do it myself, wouldnt like to imagine how u feel, sorry dude :(

i bought mine from maplins, was a cheapo 29.99 alarm but works on the interior lights, my lights dont work when u open the doors so pointless. i think it works on vibration aswell, i was going to put it in the van hidden behind my water tank. they couldnt get to it and it would make the scumbags deaf then.

Thought this was a cheap good idea if you have to work out of site off your van with the back doors open.

 

 

What do you think?

Scumbags - not just the value of the tools taken, but the loss of income on top.

 

Knocked through the back of my garage & put down some hardstanding, so my van goes on there & car goes in the garage. Means they have to get the car out & move the van before they can even get to the back doors.
