Van security tips

Insure your van with flexible cover options from Hastings Direct. While it's not always possible to prevent damage or theft, there are things you can do to help keep your vehicle safe with a few simple measures.

Van theft can be a big deal for a small business — we've put together a list of van security tips to help keep your vehicle safe:

  • Consider security when you're purchasing your van. Before you buy, consult independent advisors like Thatcham to learn more about the security rating of your specific make and model.
  • Upgrade locks, particularly if you will be storing valuable equipment overnight. It's possible to fit your van with everything from programmable keyfobs to key operated deadlocks.
  • Protect your windows with punch-steel grilles or tinted laminate that will hold the glass together if a thief tries to smash them.
  • Don't leave tools, documents or other valuables visible from the driver or passenger seat.
