** thief warning for london companies **

Recommended Posts

YOU ARE BEING WATCHED WHILE YOU WORK, DON'T FORGET. Today we've just had our 3rd theft working in North London, today it was Queensbridge Road in Hackney E8. Last time it was Winnington Road in Hampstead N2, the first time it was Tufnell Park Road in Islington N7.

 

ON EACH OCCASION A PARKED CAR WITH 2 THIEVES HAVE EXAMINED THE MOVEMENTS OF OUR GROUNDSMEN BEFORE STRIKING. Once they expect they have about 60 SECONDS clear they go in. We had a Timberwolf 150 nicked in broad daylight in the rush hour in the Islington hit, they stuck it on a Volvo, the police were a joke, quite how you can have no CCTV footage from any road is beyond me.

 

Today we had an MS660 taken from the cab, window smashed, alarm is unbelievably loud, these travellers are prepared to take any risk necessary, they are ready to fight because they will have a tool and you won't.

 

JUST REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE BEING WATCHED WHILE YOU ARE WORKING

Sorry to hear that, what a pain :thumbdown:

 

Thanks for the heads up though :thumbup1:

 

We've just been advised by the local police that there has been suspicious activity around our yards & vehicles in North London.

 

We've upped our own vigilence & security.

 

Stay alert and focused people.

Cheers for the heads up.

 

One of the guys I work for was knocked last week. During a stormy night, they cleared him of all power tools and a number of climbing kits. They also did another tree surgeon who shares the yard.

Risking not having insurance should be avoided as well, you could be completely taken out. Gristwood had a truck and chipper taken in it's entirety a few weeks ago, keys were left in it! Both got the sack, even the guy in the tree! Just another opportunist waiting for 20 seconds. The poshest areas in London are some of the riskiest because there will be 30 white vans within 200 yards doing one job or another so they just blend in - it was a white van that did the job in Hampstead.
