Shed and Garage Security – Week 4 NHSM.

Shed and Garage Security

Check your garden.  Don’t leave anything lying around that a thief could use to break in and steal your possessions.

Figures show that burglaries can increase by up to 20% at this time of year and sheds and garages are an attractive proposition to thieves during winter, as they are often left unattended in the cover of darkness.

For added protection, use a ground anchor and padlocks and chains to secure expensive items in your shed.

Statistics show that less than 5% of bikes stolen in the UK are ever returned.
