    Totally gutted! Had my van broken into last night on my drive, took both of my pure freedom trolleys and both poles, basically everything in my van apart from the containers. If anyone hears of anybody selling 2 trolleys with poles in the Teesside area let me know as they could be mine.

    That sucks! Is the van sign written? I wonder if they knew what was on board? spruce and johnny bravo areboth round your way. Maybe they could keep an ear to the ground. Feel for you pal, I'd be suicidal if it happened to me :(

    it,ii be someone starting out, or to order. keep an eye out for any tradders trying wfp, or check gumtree out occasionally. ive only noticed 2 cleaners with trolleys up here in town. they could be anywhere. time to beef up van allarms on rear doors. inside. i take reel + pole out at night. not worth leaving in overnite.
    what area you from graeme

    Might be worth going up to your local Facebook selling groups if you haven't already. They could try and move them on on there.

    get yourself a backpack and a slx and get straight back at it, it may be some competition in your area, wanting you to quit. have you got any customers from any other windy from canvassing. empty your van at night untill you get a good alarm os cctv set up.
    lots on ebay atm

    Total *******.

    Can I just say that my van is covered with Adrian Flux including contents. This is a like for like deal so if anything were to get nicked out of the van as long as I have a receipt and a police report they will have it replaced.

    Always worth paying that bit extra for peace of mind.

    Hope you catch the pricks.
