    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!!!!

    I'm absolutely gutted for you David to hear that news....

    May I ask where was the kit at the time and was it insured?

    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.
