15 Nov: October Recovery Highlights – £2.9m Recovered

Clocks have gone back and dark nights are here. Soon cars will start to freeze over and the age old problem of people leaving their vehicles unattended will begin to arise. Meanwhile Spooky Season was lively as the ghouls and goblins were out stealing cars.

Recovery totals have now hit £30 million for the year as October’s recovery totals hit just under £2.9 million. This was £1 million more than the same period last year. Car theft is showing no signs of slowing down as the year comes to a close.

19 Oct: Is your Motorhome or Caravan safe in storage?

Now we have entered the autumn months, the days begin to get shorter and the nights longer, we are now beginning to see caravans and motorhomes head to their winter homes back to storage
