    Thanks Peter.

    After having talked to a few van owners and a few security companies, I am probably going for extra deadlocks as I wanted something that didn't say "look at the extra security, there must be something worth nicking in here!" (If you know what I mean)

    I remember saying exactly the same thing once about garage doors with visible extra security...only to be told by someone that I was talking complete rubbish!

    There's a great deal of difference between a van which will be parked in a lot of difference places and a garage which is joined to my house.

    .

    I haven't told anyone anything and do you really suppose that a person reading this will think that a van is worth nicking if there is extra security on it?

    My company is registered at companies house, so if people want to find me they will.

    I have appropriate security for my premisis and van and also insurance.

    Just about anyone who has their company name on the internet will be traceable. Welcome to the real world.

    I was thinking that.

    Security is great but it needs to be subtle as well as tough. The most determine will get in whatever.

    As long as you have satisfied your insurance underwriting thats all that matters.

    Anyone with a ltd company legally has to post the address on everything including websites.

    I think putting your availability on websites etc. does not help as any thief will know when to baseball bat you when you get home knackered from a gig.

    Look at this, great for business though :
