It’s easier to pick the lock on a van than you might think and this is becoming an increasing problem in the UK. Picks are easy to purchase online, so thieves can pick locks and break into vehicles with very little effort. This means they can access all of the contents inside, as well as being able to steal the vehicle itself – an experienced thief will know how to override the immobiliser using the OBD socket.
Luckily, there is a simple solution: anti-pick locks. At CVS Van Hire, we have the knowledge and experience to advise you fully on the type of lock your vehicle needs. We can fit it for you on our premises, with fitting usually taking less than 15 minutes. We have two branches based in Tottenham and Enfield – you can find us at:
72 White Hart Lane, Tottenham, London N17 8HH
5 Lumina Way, Enfield, Middlesex EN1 1FS.
Contact us to book your van in with us or to ask any questions.
