Should you be alarmed? A few pointers in the right direction...

Whatever you drive or ride be it expensive or a cheaper model, a classic or one that is sentimental, we can help protect it.  After all, your vehicle is your way of life and not merely a convenience, it is a necessity. Therefore, it is only natural that you want to do everything you can to keep your vehicle YOURS. 

Imagine the hassle if someone were to steal your car, you would not be able to go anywhere without relying on someone else. It would slow down your life and quickly become frustrating. Even though you might have insurance and be covered, it will still be a huge inconvenience, especially if they did not steal it but left it in a state and you had to organise its repair.

So what options are there?

Alarms

Modern car alarms are designed to respond to a variety of different security threats that can lead to car theft or other car crime. These include the risk of a break-in via a car door, damage from impact and even loud noise in the vicinity of the car itself.

Slamlocks

These automatically lock your van door when you slam it shut. The idea is to prevent opportunist thieves from entering your vehicle when you leave it unattended.

These locks come in two main formats – key operated and remote-controlled. These style locks require a key every time a door is to be opened.

Trackers

Car tracking devices work by using Global Positioning Satellites to find their current location. This can then be sent to the end-user or SOC (Secure Operating Centre) to enable the location of the vehicle, either by the police or in the way of self-track, by the user themselves.

Deadlocks

A deadlock works by having to put a key into a lock and turn it every time you want to use the deadlock. Without this, the vehicle will lock normally. Though highly secure, you need to remember to manually lock them each time you leave the van.

Immobilisers and

Ghost Immobilisers

Ghost Immobilisers
Ghost immobilisers have no key-fobs or LED indications to give away their location. This system uses buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, PIN code sequence that must first be entered before you can drive your car.
After a thief successfully breaks into your car, he needs to be able to start it. Unless a key is present, they have to hotwire it. The immobiliser prevents this by using different methods to stop the theft by using methods such as:
  • transponder keys and fobs

  • fuse cut-offs

  • fuel or spark disablers

  • kill switches

What is Relay Theft?

Relay theft is when two thieves work together to access your car by grabbing the key signal and remotely transmitting it to the vehicle. If you're the owner of a keyless entry car and have your car parked on the driveway, keeping your key near your front door can be particularly risky.

Fitting aftermarket items such as ghost immobilisers and visual deterrents such as steering wheel locks are the best means of defeating this growing trend.

Where's hot and where's not
in van crime?

The VaVoid app has been created to help tradesmen and other van owners in the UK to protect their tools, van and livelihood from the epidemic of van tool theft and van thefts that have been happening more and more frequently in the UK and worldwide in recent years.
