Keeping your Van Secure

  • Remove the ignition key when you get out of the vehicle, even when parking in your own drive or at a petrol station.
  • Never leave a door unlocked or a window or sunroof open, even when just going into a shop for a moment or two.
  • Don’t leave any belongings in your vehicle. A thief won’t know that a bag or coat doesn’t contain something valuable and might break a window to get at it. If you can’t take them with you, lock them out of sight.
  • Don’t leave money, credit cards or cheque books in the glove compartment.
  • Never leave your vehicle documents in the vehicle; they could help a thief to sell it.
  • If you can, leave the vehicle in a locked garage and lock both your vehicle and the garage. If you do not have a garage, try to park in a well-lit, open space.
  • At home, ensure your vehicle keys are kept in a safe place, out of sight and away from windows and doors.
  • When parking in a public car park, look for one that is well supervised, with restricted entry and exit points, good lighting and security cameras. Wherever possible use Park Mark® car parks – details of approved Park Mark® car parks can be found here.
  • Etch the vehicle’s registration number on all glass surfaces – windows, sunroofs etc. Thieves don’t want the expense of replacement.
  • If your vehicle is not fitted with an alarm or immobiliser, consider fitting one which is Thatcham approved. Also think about fitting a tracking device especially if you have a high-performance or an expensive vehicle.
