Adding security features
It’s likely that you’ll have an alarm and an immobiliser fitted as part of your van’s factory settings, but adding more security features could act as a deterrent to thieves. These could include:
- A van engine immobiliser, which only lets you start your van with the correct fob or key.
- A mechanical immobiliser, for example, a steering wheel lock.
- Steel plates to protect your door handles and mechanisms.
Make sure you check if any devices you’re looking to buy, or already have, are approved by Thatcham, the motor insurance industry body.
