WHAT's IN YOUR SHED?

People think that the contents of their shed have little value, but what if you had to replace the contents of your shed, just how much would it cost?

Because people think that the contents of their shed have little value they pay very little attention to their shed security. When asked what is in their shed many people will answer something like “Just a few old tools”, “A bit of fishing tackle”, “The kids toys”, “nothing much just junk”.

Remember the tools and equipment you keep in your shed could be used to force entry into your home, causing you even more expense and hassle.

If you were to add up the value of just what you do keep in your shed and its replacement cost, you may be in for a shock, It is sometimes the case that the value of property people keep in their shed adds up to more than the value of the property in their living room. Is the security on your shed really up to the job?

  • Try to place your shed within view of your house and ensure there is adequate lighting. Consider installing an alarm.

  • Ensure the shed is in a good state of repair. Fit a good quality closed shackle padlock to the door in order to prevent thieves cutting through the shackle of the lock.

  • Consider having lockable steel boxes fitted to the floor to store your tools in.

  • Make a note of make, model and serial number of tools, equipment and bicycles, take photographs and secure all items in a safe place whilst stored in your shed.

  • Lock items together in order to make it more difficult for them to be carried away by thieves.
