Bloody hell mate, sorry to hear that. Van bad enuf but tools are a no-no!! If my van and tools went i would be dead in the water, no business!!
I will put your reg on a postit on my dash, i do a lot over liverpool, especially in the kirkby area, but the chances of them syill driving the van around is very slim im afraid!
Good luck mate, keep us all updated

Thanks Hoseman and everyone else for their kind words and concern. The only update is all documents and keys are now in the hands of the insurance company, heard no more off the police, so it looks like the tools have gone forever, didn't expect anything else really. Anyone with a van, i think the time has come to consider the following, please feel free to add, Strong hasp and staple, the very best of locks on all doors,maybe 2, including, drivers and passengers, alarm, immobiliser and wheel clamp. The next van will have all of them, can't afford to get wiped out again. Shouldn't have to live life like this, I'll have to start leaving the house 15 minutes earlier to get in.

Had a phone call yesterday " Hello Mr Bert, Merseyside Police, just phoning to tell you your van is still missing" I replied "yes i know, I'm looking out of the window as we speak"
The policemen said " i know its daft but we have to inform people of any progress, of which there's been none" OK i said, "don't worry i have a new van so i don't want it back, if you should find any tools I'll have them" "what tools" he said, so i thought i am not going to bother, thanked him for the call and left it at that.
Thats the latest update.

Bloody hell bert, didn't know that no progress was progress. Talk about ticking boxes. Looks like you'll just have to put this one behind you. Life's a bitch, then you marry one then you die.

The police sound like an insurance company.

You only know how good they really are when you have to use them.

I had a van stolen once, reported it to the police, then several months later got a letter from DVLA saying someone had applied for a new registration document for it and was it ok with me. One would have thought the police *should* flag stolen vehicles with the DVLA? Admittedly this was about 10 years back so hopefully in these days of the ANPR database this has been resolved.

As it turned out the buyer who'd bought it from the thief turned out to be a decent bloke and he turned up and paid me something.

Bert, no amount of locks will keep the most determined scumbags from stealing your tools mate. The only solution is to remove them from the van overnight. A pain I know, but worth it in the long run.

Here's another one I'll throw into the mix, I'll keep it here so the knowledgeable of these things can have an input. This was pointed out to me yesterday, something that never crossed my mind. The van was insured 3rd party, fire and theft, old and probably not worth a carrot, more value in its use rather than financially. I suppose i couldn't argue if it was only worth £500, maybe more maybe less, but that figure will do for now, take off £150 excess, £350. The point being made to me was, if i accept that kind of payout and losing my NO Claims at the same time, over the next 5 years what is that going to cost me in higher insurance costs, because one thing for certain, my insurance will go up. Is it worth accepting a pay out or just wipe it off, Thoughts please.

Just go on the comparison sites.

I always protect my no claims as you can get it for £30 at some places but as high as £150 to protect them.

For the £350 i would try and keep a clean sheet and on renewal protect your no claims.

Thanks Mark, I'm thinking that way, just wipe it off, I'll have to wait and see the exact figure offered, can't see it being much more though.

Hey bert, so sorry to hear your plight mate. This topic went under my radar so a little late in adding my support. Thieving scumbags.
