Warning from Police

22/10/2015

Police in Huddersfield are warning locals to refrain from keeping their garage door remotes in their cars after thieves target the area looking for the devices in the past few weeks.

Whilst it often convenient and can be done without thinking, storing the remote down the side of car door or just in plain view might seem like a good idea, however if left overnight, it is like leaving your front door keys on show.

Garages themselves often stores extremely valuable items which could have a high resale value or be used by a thief to commit further crimes. A quick look in your garage right now may identify that you have thousands of pounds stored inside, especially when you add up the value of scrap metal and tools.

Not all garage door remotes are modern and small and therefore carrying them around with you all the time might not be easy, however, Hörmann’s range of keyring size remotes are perfect for this scenario.

If it is not feasible to carry it around, pop it in a handbag or rucksack and make sure it is out of sight at all times, especially if your car is parked outside of the garage.

At Huddersfield Garage Doors we can also look at ways to tighten security on your garage door, regardless of the use of the garage. Our garage doors come with some of the highest levels of security as standard, however you can always upgrade to more security should you wish.
