Do not leave tools or equipment on view inside the vehicle.
 
Consider fitting an appropriate alarm system, protecting the cabin and load areas.
 
Apply a security marking product to power tools and equipment (further details available on request). Alternatively, etch or emboss identifiable marks to these items.
 
Consider installing secure storage containers or lockers in the van to store tools in.
 
Ensure that the van doors are securely lockable and consider having suitable deadlocks installed.
 
Make sure to physically check that the van doors and windows are locked if you have used the remote to lock the vehicle, even if the feedback indicates the van as locked.
