Frequently Asked Questions
Here is why to use VanSecure for your Vans security and accessories
Why choose VanSecure?
When you choose someone to fit locks to your van, you’re putting a lot of trust in them. You need to be certain they will treat the van with the same care that you would, and that they know what they are doing. If locks aren’t fitted correctly, they might not be as effective in stopping a break in. What happens if someone cuts a hole in your van in the wrong place? What happens if they don’t treat the metal properly after cutting and you get rust in the doors? With VanSecure you don’t need to worry about any of this. We put every effort into making sure you get the best possible outcome from using our service. From the locks we fit, to the fitting process we use, we do not compromise on quality.

Can you fit van locks at my workplace?
Yes of course! We only need to be able to park next to your van to be able to carry out the work. We regularly fit the locks whilst our customers are working to prevent them having to take time off work.
Can you fit locks at my home?
Do I have to supply power for you to do the fitting job?
If I have van deadlocks is there any reason to also have shields?
1- If you’ve locked your central locking, but don’t have your deadlocks locked for any reason, (maybe you’re working on site somewhere in a ‘safe’ area, your labourer forgot to lock them after getting something from the van, etc), the shields will protect your original van locks from being bypassed.
2- if your deadlocks are on, the deadlock will be the only thing holding it closed, when the door latch is opened. This means the thieves the free to bend the door upwards and get into your van underneath.
The bottom line is, the original door locks are very strong if they can’t be disarmed, and the shields are an inexpensive way of giving yourself an extra layer of security all the time.
Do you fit trackers?
Do I need to have locks fitted on my driver and passenger doors, or is it enough to secure my load area doors?
Sometimes cab deadlocks are a good idea, other times, (particularly with Fords), it’s a better idea to fit products such as a replacement drivers door lock and wiring loom guards to strengthen the original Ford locking system.
We don’t do ‘one size fits all’, it’s always best to give us a call to have a chat through your options.

Everything you need to know about our products
What is the difference between a slamlock and a deadlock?
With a deadlock you have a much stronger lock, and it will put up more of a fight than a slamlock. You need to lock and unlock it every time you want to secure your van, but you have the freedom to choose when it’s operational, and you also can’t lock your keys in the back of the van!
Is there a cheaper option?
We work very hard to give you the best possible value. We only fit the highest quality and most effective locks, and will not fit something to your van if we don’t think it will do the job. Our fitting processes have been developed over 10 years to ensure you get a great result every time.
