Top 4 Essential Tips For Keeping Your Van Secure This Winter

The months of winter are associated with short misty days and long dark nights, making your van vulnerable to theft. It’s for this reason why we at Autotronix feel it is very important to provide you with some useful tips that you can use to keep your vehicle secure this winter:

1. Install Secure Van Locks

We offer a wide variety of van locks for you to choose from, which include slam locks and deadlocks. Deadlocks are specifically designed to offer an additional level of security, especially in areas where your van is particularly vulnerable. If you are operating courier services, then slam locks are suitable for you. Once the door is locked, it can only be opened using a special key from the outside. We are very flexible with our van lock services and can carry out the installation on-site or at your garage.

2. Install an Alarm System

Another effective way of protecting your van against theft this winter is by installing one of our alarm systems. The moment a thief finds out that your van is fitted with an alarm system, they will undoubtedly think twice before proceeding with breaking in. We have highly-skilled alarm fitting specialists trained and approved to install alarm systems from a number of industry-recognised manufacturers such as Tracker Locate, Cobra, Clifford and SmarTrack to mention just a few. Certain alarms also come with additional features such as glass break sensors, remote start and total closure.

3. Tint the Windows?

Tinted windows play a major role in preventing car thieves from seeing your valuable items from the outside, making them less interested in stealing from you. Apart from preventing theft, tinted windows also improve privacy and reduce glare. At Autotronix, we offer high-quality window tinting service that you can rely on due to the fact that we have experienced window tinting experts who have tinted windows in a wide variety of vehicles for a considerable number of years.

4. Install a Vehicle Tracking System

Once we fit a vehicle tracking system into your van, we will be monitoring it in real-time. This means that should your van be stolen, we will be able to trace its movement from where it was stolen to its current location and recover it within the shortest possible time frame.
