Van Crime. An all time high!
The first 6 months of 2015 has seen Garrison Locks secure more vans than the whole of 2014. In excess of 3000 orders being placed for van locks and accessories during the first 6 months shows us the crime wave is at an all time high. Simply tearing a hole in the door will allow access to the most vulnerable area of the lock system.
The hardest hit vehicle has been the 2000-2014 Transit. With this in mind we supplied our customers with a specialist kit to combat the most common type of forced entry. The common methods are picking, scanning and simply barring open the doors.
Drivers door lock upgrades are a great way to combat picking and provide a good form of security. The Hykee lock is secured into the OEM housing and cannot be torn from the door.
What's Best? Slams, Deads, Limpet Locks.
We would safely say that Slam Locks have always been a better option than Dead Locks. This year we have seen Deadlocks attacked in such a way that customers are now adding Slamlocks to their fleets in addition to other lock systems.
Garrison Locks work on a national level. We have engineers on call for onsite installation. This can be from 1 man and a van (and we do lots!) to large fleets with new vans waiting to go to work.
Our turn around for from date of booking to install is normally 2-3 days. This far exceeds many companies that cannot offer the service we do. All our fitters are fully trained up to date and are the most experienced in their field.
