Caravan security advice over winter

Anyone interested in buying caravans for sale in Wales, and those who are already lucky enough to own such properties, may be interested in security advice that has been issued by a police force.

Lincolnshire Police noted that static caravans are proving very popular. Indeed, there is considerable interest in such holiday homes for sale. The force stated: “If you own a caravan on the coast, or are considering purchasing one, there are some important security questions to consider and a few tips you should follow in order to make the day to day security of your pride and joy as effective as possible.”

It pointed out that many such vacation abodes have LCD TVs and other expensive items of electrical equipment in them. This means it is more important than ever for consumers to protect their security.

According to Lincolnshire Police, it is a good idea for owners to remove all valuable items from caravans when they are planning to leave them unoccupied for long periods of time. It suggested that this reduces the opportunities for thieves.

The force added: “It is better to leave curtains open so criminals can clearly see that there are no valuables to steal.”

Consumers were also advised to fit alarms, as this can be an effective means of deterring criminals who are intent on breaking in. The police remarked: “There are many different alarms available with different levels of protection, and it is usually the amount you are willing to pay that dictates the alarm system you choose.”
