Our Blue Box Storage Experts are blaming the fewer Police and warning households with vehicles, as they are at greater risk of Motor Theft from their homes during the 9th week of Lockdown. Would Vehicles Storage be the answer to stop Motor Theft?

Motor Theft risen by 60% · Blue Box Storage

Motor Theft like ‘Car Showrooms’ say experts

Motor Theft has risen up to 60% in parts of the UK between 2016 and 2019, with the greatest rises more in Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire. While in West Midlands the ‘UK Car theft capital’ with at least 7,883 stolen motors in 2018-19 alone, saw a big spike in the crime.

The Blue Box Experts are now saying that we should warn the South Yorkshire and Doncaster Community as they face a greater risk of motor theft during Lockdown, and that they should consider using Vehicles Storage at our 24/7 secure Doncaster site.

The lack of Police on the street has caused a spike of Motor Theft that has rocketed up to 60%, leaving homes at greater risk of being broken into and cars stolen while the whole country is in Coronavirus Lockdown.

Breakdown company, AA have also warned about Thieves could be basically ‘window shopping’ for vehicles that are left on driveways or on streets, with all but essential journeys banned during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

“Having your car/van stolen at any time is pretty low

Bryan Merrett, owner of Blue Box Storage said this in a statement: “Being a victim of Motor Theft at any time is pretty low, but to have it stolen during the Lockdown period feels below the belt. Drivers should consider having their cars or vans locked up in Vehicles Storage, or parked in a well-lit place with CCTV – well Blue Box Storage has both of those options.”
