Water-fed pole vans are an ongoing target for opportunist thieves….avoid being a victim.


  • Don’t leave keys in the van while working.
  • Don’t leave valuables in the vehicle.
  • Protect yourself and your employees.


Consider fitting a steering wheel lock while working or keeping the driver and passenger doors locked while working…it only takes thieves a second to steal an unlocked van with keys in.

Opportunist thieves jumped into a window cleaning van while the operative was cleaning windows using a Water-fed pole just yards away – he was only alerted when the water was suddenly disconnected!

Fortunately, the operative was not hurt on this particular occasion…but similar incidents have caused harm!



Assess the Risk on the probability of this incident!
