Tradesman’s Tools Stolen From Van As He Worked On House

Tradesman’s Tools Stolen From Van As He Worked On House

A tradesman lost an ‘extensive’ amount of tools from his van as it was parked outside a house in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire Live reports. The thieves pulled up in broad daylight behind the van, which was parked in a residential area of the town. The tools were quickly transferred to a white Ford Transit van, which drove off before the theft was noticed.

Fortunately CCTV footage has been obtained, which has provided vital evidence to help the police track down the criminals.

PCSO Sean Elliott, of Uttoxeter Rural, said: “It is a timely reminder to keep your vehicles secure at all times, even when working at a location. Opportunist thieves will quickly take advantage. With good information coming in from the local residents, and enquiries going well, the police, alongside the communities which they work, can often bring good results.

According to Security News Desk, only 1% of stolen tools are recovered. Furthermore, in London last year, £17.5m worth of tools were stolen, which amounts to £57,000 worth every day. For tradespeople, who are often self-employed, the thefts lead to loss of work and income, and cause extra stress and anxiety.

For those with adequate insurance cover, it is a case of going through the necessary paperwork to claim the cost of replacing the tools. If the tools were not adequately insured, or sufficient security methods weren’t followed, then some tradespeople may not be able to afford to replace the tools, and never recover financially from the loss.

To reduce the chance of theft, police advise people not to store tools in their van overnight. If it is unavoidable to leave tools in the van, the advice is to park in a busy area, preferably one that is monitored by CCTV. Vehicles should be alarmed, and tools kept in lockable interior cabinets, which if possible should be bolted or locked to the floor.

Which Jobs Require Tradesmen Insurance?

Which Jobs Require Tradesmen Insurance?

If youve made the move to strike out on your own as a tradesman, it can be an exciting and exhilarating adventure. Youre your own boss, you can work when and for whoever you want, and manage your business however suits you best.

But before you start filling your order book and taking on clients, you must ensure you have adequate business insurance. No matter the precautions you take, things can, and will, go wrong sometimes, and it is a good idea to ensure you are prepared.

But tradesmancovers a very wide range of trades and skills, and it is important to ensure you have the right insurance policy to protect you and your business. Lets have a look at three jobs that can benefit from tradesmen insurance.

Builders

Builders must have adequate insurance to cover a number of things that can happen on-site or as a result of their work. Public liability insurance is essential to protect construction staff from financial consequences which could occur if a member of the public were injured because of the work.

Builders should also ensure their insurance policy covers the damage and theft of tools and stored materials.

Window cleaners

As well as insurance that can cover increased costs of working, and protect tools and vehicles against theft, window cleaners can pose a risk to the public, as passers-by could be hurt if something was dropped from a height, or if they slip in a puddle of water, meaning public liability insurance is a must.

Tree surgeons

Similar to the above trades, it is essential to get cover for tools, equipment, and vehicles, as well as public liability insurance. Adequate tree surgeon insurance will also cover contamination and pollution caused by work being carried out.
