Xmas is traditionally, of course, a time for giving but I am afraid that in the eyes of some it is also a season for taking – other people’s things I mean.

It is an unpleasant fact that this time of year sees an increase in burglaries, with the risk in December some 20% over other months of the year.  It can be a bonanza for Burglar Bill as he helps himself to the gifts you have spent so long saving up for.

It is not uncommon for people to keep some presents in their garage, along with the booze and even the turkey.  The question to ask is how secure is your garage door?

You need to ensure that it is kept locked, including any pedestrian access doors.  Most burglaries occur on a weekday between 10.00am and 3.00pm when the main building is likely to be empty so these are important times to target.

If you live in Gloucestershire and have any doubts about the security of your garage, or would simply like to chat about possible solutions, why not give me a call on 01452 539455 to find out what I can do for you.
