NB. Sometimes Bad vehicle security can affect Insurance premiums! We feel that security is not only that of the vehicle itself but also where it is parked.

Whether on company premises, customers' premises or overnight at a drivers home. Care and thought is all part of Vehicles Duty of Care.

Just remembering to locking a vehicle is not the b all and end all of vehicle security! This Video suggests that a new range of vehicle covers that disguise as well as protect, might lower insurance premiums!
