    Only the vehicle stocklist down - maybe being updated. Everything else works OK.

    Don't talk to me about razor wire, going to cost me £10K to razor wire, re-fence and security fence around the dealership to keep the scroats out at night and stop them stealing cat converters. It will look like bloody Fort Knox now.

    The website was supposed to have an update which screwed the whole thing up, it is now slowly being reloaded back to the original:cry:

    We have had a number of nasty ideas including wiring the cats up to a cattle/sheep/pig fencing electric shocker but it would mean wires running all over the site. !

    Not allowed a Guard Dog, health and bloody safety

    Websites now up and running at last :thumb:

    Peter what has happened to your windows?

    I normally sit in the car while Sue goes in to pick up what is needed.. Now I cannot see anything .. Except a load of unattractive covering.. If you are going to add razor wire it is going to look even more unattractive... Would it not be cheaper to fit a bolt (the type that you cannot unscrew)... To each of the vehicles in stock? Added value to the customer and a lot cheaper than making the site look like a fortress.

    I feel for you having to suffer the thefts.. Many many years back I had a car site in Sussex .. A life time back and we used to suffer wheels being nicked... Cost a fortune.. Before we fitted wheel clamps it was the car that went.. Despite fences and padlocks, they just cut the padlock.. Was a bit better when we installed CCTV...

    Fit bolts or weld them, the scroats just cut them off either with a hand saw or battery angle grinder, that means buying a virtual complete exhaust instead of just a cat.

    At the moment we have removed all the cats full stop, pain in the arse as if some one wants a test drive we have to put one back on.

    Customers vans are locked in the workshop overnight or cat off until collected.

    Hopefully the security railings will look attractive ans see through, wating for estimates and proposals and of course it will make the forecourt secure at night.

    As to CCTV, we are surounded by cameras and have been for years, doesnt stop them.

    We have that but as its an 'open' site people ignored the 'do not cross after hours signs' we had so many false alarms, we had to turn it off along the front of the forecourt.

    Been there done it all before, just got to lock them out now or make it bloody hard to get in.

    Put a caravan on site, in view with 'security' written on it and leave the lights on.

    Peter is it too expensive to find someone for security at night? would have thought quite a few small companies in the area need the work

    Unfortunately our insurers are not going to accept that and I don't want any more agro.

    Its the sign of the times now, everyone is getting targeted and at the end of the day I have always thought we were too open for thieves and vandals, we have over 1.5 million pounds worth of vans on display at all times.

    I had a word with these guys a few years back.

    They do good trade rates - you could offer them as a promotion if cat theft is a problem in your area. Long as they know yours are more difficult, they will go elsewhere.

    The promotion board will be enough to say every vehicle is fitted with one.
