Unfortunately we live in a society that some ppl don't give a fig and will rob you blind given a chance.

Just ask the many window cleaners that have had the van broken into or the van stolen even whilst out working too.

Here are just a few examples but are many more that don't make the public domain that are stolen

Your can't trust anyone even another so say window cleaner

So in short Smurf, you are such a miserable distrusting sole that you automatically assumes that this countries residents are nothing more than a bunch of thieving swine.

 

It is so sad to see someone so jaded.

 

I do not live in the best of neighborhoods but there is never any bother around here, besides, my van has a state of the art alarm and immobilizer to prevent my gear getting nicked.

 

I pity they fact that you have no faith in humanity any more as decent people.

The amount of car jackings around, ordinary hatchbacks, involving near manslaughter incidents... A window van with £££s of gear on board that can be stripped, very tempting. If I had a van mount I would have an external connector and maybe get a hound like Simon, Doberman perhaps :-)

At least one van disappears each year and is never seen again which is probably stolen to order and shipped abroad. Don't matter what deterrents you have even hidden trackers as pro's can disable them easily.

Maybe I'll keep my off-putting van a little while longer, the 14 year old plate, black smoke and pained engine sounds might put off the criminal masterminds ;-)

That's is one of the reason why I drive an old unsignwritten van about.

Because it don't have nick me all over the van and who in their right state of mind is going to nick a shed. :D

Still you have to run a business but if a van mount goes missing then you are stuffed big time until the insurance sorts it out. That is if the contents of the van is insured as many cut cost and don't insured van mounts and other kit inside the van.

if you have a van that's reasonable looking and respectable looking then it should reduce the chances of it being stolen.

if your driving about in a new van nice writing, its just like a big steak on a plate lol

I'm sure a lot of cleaners forget whilst out working to take the keys out of the ignition and/or lock the van up. I know I sometimes do but if my van got nicked then my insurance would not pay out nor if anything that goes missing from inside the van too.

I check my keys every few seconds when I go in or out the van, it's an OCD type habit but once the van is shut there's no other way in so I clip them on and off my belt loop all the time. I might get one of those curly key things so it's always on me...

the spare works the lock but doesn't do ignition so I'd be up the creek if I lost it.

 

Do you keep your ladder on all the time smurf? I do, with a ratchet strap, two ladder clamps, and a 12mm steel rope and cat 9 waterproof padlock. Might slow them down a few mins if they really want it...

with the citroen dispatch you can lock cabin doors , while leaving side and rear doors open, if you remember, a great safety device when working on rear of buildings
