Theft from motor vehicles

To avoid becoming a victim, please ensure that your vehicle or trailer is locked and secured when left unattended.  It is also very important that all or your power tools are engraved with your licence number so that in the event your tools are stolen and recovered by police, these tools can be returned to the rightful owner quickly.
