Protect yourself from vehicle theft

Vehicle theft has always been an issue in the UK and it would seem that thieves not only target ANYWHERE (2) they also target ANYONE. The number of rural thefts has increased in the last year by over 5% according to an article by smallholder.co.uk (1).

Vehicle Accessories can provide a number of solutions to help prevent and deter thieves from stealing your property:

Vehicle Tracking-

As well as being able to use trackers to check up on staff or individuals driving your car, tracking also enables you to find your car more easily if it's stolen. Another advantage is that tracking helps to make your insurance much cheaper.


Dashcams are useful, particularly those that record even when you are not in the car, because they help you to catch and identify the thief. A dashcam is especially useful as a deterrent to thieves and, of course, has use when dealing with false claims such as cash for crash. (Please see our article from last week about how to choose your dashcam).


There are a number of accessories that can help to keep your vehicle/ your valuables safe. TUFFBOXES are a new and exciting item that we have started to sell and they keep valuables, such as tools and electronics, safe from theft. TUFFBOXES come in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. Specially designed locks, such as the Armaplate Guardian, are also great deterrents and theft prevention tools.

Vehicle tracking- the facts:

Different types of vehicle tracking equipment exist depending on your company/individual needs. Whether it be PAYG, GPS or Fleet tracking that you need installed, at Vehicle Accessories we not only provide a variety of different trackers, we also install nationwide.
