4 Tips To Keep Your Van Safe Year Round

Published 11th March 2021Read Time 3 min

Whether your van feels more like your mobile office or your home away from home, it’s important to be security-conscious to ensure your van remains in working condition and you can continue to get from job to job. My friends over at the Van Insurance team put together some great tips to help keep your van secure all year round.

Lock It Up

I know it can be easy to forget, especially after a long day, but making sure to lock your van every time is super important. Not only does it reduce the risk of someone breaking in, but it’ll also help you form the habit so you’re less likely to space out. And don’t forget – keeping your locks maintained is key too. Give them a look over every so often for any rust or wear and tear. The last thing you want is for a lock to get weak over time.

Park Strategically

When you’re rushing from one job to the next, it’s not always possible to find the most secure parking. But do your best to park in well-lit areas where your van is visible if you can. And if you don’t have a garage, try asking the homeowner if you can park in their driveway while working. Even just being in sight can deter potential thieves.

Hide Your Valuables

With all the expensive tools and gear you have in the van, it’s like a thief’s dream come true. Make sure to properly store anything valuable out of sight. And don’t leave personal items like your phone lying around either. The less they see, the less tempted they’ll be.

Watch The Weight

Be mindful of how much weight you’re carrying too. Most vans have a max payload so don’t overload it. Not only will it cause more wear and tear, but it can really affect your ability to brake safely. 

To keep your van running smoothly and securely, make sure to get the right insurance coverage. Speak to the Van Insurance experts today for a quote that will protect your van and all your valuable equipment inside. Call 016740445 now!
