Tool theft on the rise!

  • 20th May 2024
  • Storage for Business

Tool theft is on the rise; £98 million worth of tools were stolen last year. According to research from Direct Line business insurance, last year, a tool theft was reported every 12 minutes in the UK.  44,514 tool thefts were reported to the police, equating to around £98 million worth of tools.

Thefts are continuing to increase, despite tradespeople each spending an average of £628 on additional security to protect their tools.

More than half  (24,543 thefts which represented 55% of the total) of all tool thefts were from a vehicle.

Where do you keep your tools?  Are they secure?

Many insurance companies won’t cover you if your tools are kept in your van.  On top of the actual cost of replacing your tools, you also face the loss of work in the meantime.

Don’t risk it, keep your tools somewhere safe.

At The Space Program, you can rest assured that your tools and stock are secure.  Not only are they locked up and only you have access, but the sites are covered by 24/7 monitored CCTV.  During the weekdays, the sites are manned.   Outside of those times, entry is only possible via a secure gate with your unique access code.  You have 24 hour access to the site, so you can get to your belongings at any time, day or night.
