OCTOBER 16, 2018

SMARTWATER TOOLS IN TRANSIT INSURANCE

ARTICLE

Van tool theft is a real problem, and it is happening every seven minutes in the UK. Recent figures have revealed that every year tool theft is costing tradespeople nearly £100m. In turn, these tradesmen and women must work over 450,000 days to pay for replacement tools.

The stats are astonishing however they show that the problem is not going away. Instead, tool theft in the UK is increasing and there seems to be very little to deter the thieves…
