»Bradford Tops League Table For BurglaryBradford has topped a league table for being one of the worst places in the UK for burglary, with a quarter of the country’s 20 worst postcode hotspots for home burglary within the Bradford district.

The other Bradford postcodes which appear in the list are BD10 (Eccleshill, Idle, Thackley and Greengates), BD17 (Baildon), BD18 (Shipley) and BD6 (Buttershaw and Wibsey).
Don’t be a victim of burglary, make sure your home is secure.
»Van Drivers At Risk Of TheftMany of Britain’s van drivers could be putting themselves at risk of theft without the correct level of insurance cover according to a survey by a leading insurance comparison website.
Approximately 65% of van owners surveyed, which included many small businesses, said they used their vans to transport tools, goods or equipment and over half of those surveyed said they left items in their vehicles overnight.
Approximately 10% of those surveyed also admitted to selecting the ‘social only’ insurance level to reduce insurance costs which would not be adequate for a business/commercial insurance claim.

»25% Of All Vehicle Thefts Now Involve The Use Of A KeyThe latest UK crime statistics show an alarming rise in vehicle thefts involving the use of a key with 25 percent of all stolen vehicles now being taken with the original key or a cloned copy.
It is important to lock your car, even when kept in a garage, and ensure your car keys are kept out of sight from the opportunist thief as a car which is stolen with the use of a key is unlikely to be covered in the event of an insurance claim.

»Home Security in the Summer MonthsAs summer approaches and the days get warmer it is natural to leave windows open and doors ajar to keep homes cooler. Unfortunately this can be an open invitation to the “sneak-in” opportunist burglar who will take advantage of open doors and windows and make off with small, expensive items such as mobile phones and laptops, or even a set of house keys to return later when the house is empty or everyone is asleep.
If a burglary takes place without any visible signs of forced entry it can invalidate insurance claims, so it is important to remain security concious in the summer. One way to help prevent “sneak-in” burglaries is to install door security chains and window restrictors. This allows doors and windows to be left open slightly while offering enough security to deter an opportunist thief.
Call your local Bradford locksmith on 01274 280005 today to discuss your home security needs.

»Lock Snapping on ‘The One Show’The dangers of lock snapping were recently discussed on the One Show (7th March 2012) and the advice is to ensure the locks on your uPVC doors are designed to withstand this kind of forced entry.
Lock snapping is a technique used by burglars where uPVC locks are literally snapped in half allowing quick access to your property. Unfortunately this type of forced entry is becoming more and more commonplace, and many homes with uPVC doors in the Bradford area are susceptible to this kind of attack unless the locks have been upgraded with anti-snap cylinders.
We can provide anti-snap, anti-bump and anti-pick locks for your doors. Call us now on 01274 280005 for a free, no obligation quote.
