think thru your shop and car security issues

Postby grumpyvette » February 13th, 2012, 9:06 am

I just got off the phone with a highly upset acquaintance of mine from several years ago, Id built him a killer 496 big block for his 1969 corvette and he was looking to find a few parts to duplicate that engine as he really loved the car, but it seems that several months ago he had returned from a outing that took him out of town for the weekend to find his garage/shop had been broken into in his absence and most of his tools, engine parts and his 30 year project corvette had been stolen, the burnt husk of the corvette body and frame minus the wheels and drive train were later recovered a couple days later in a vacant lot in an area of town known to have several chop shops.
now he lives on a 15 acre lot in a rural area so he had a locked fence and gate, but no really close neighbors that would have really noticed much, as his homes on a lot with a great many trees blocking easy site of his home and shop. .
the thieves had cut his phone lines to the house before busting into his house and garage and partly because he had NOT gotten the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED,wireless auto dial cell phone feature that costs a bit more ,the act was effective in giving the thieves ample time to strip his shop, the cops estimated that it took a fairly large rental box truck and a car trailer to move all his tools and the car after looking at photos of his shop.
the cops estimated even with several guys it would have taken over 20-30 minutes to strip his shop and move and load his car, which was not in running condition at the time of the theft.
the thieves had simply ripped off the side door hinges with an axe from appearances.
now obviously you can,t prevent all thefts, and being paranoid all the time sucks, but you can make things far more difficult, for thieves and he strongly suspects when they find the thieves if they ever do, that they were people that know him from the local track or machine shops, or speed shops , remember in most cases it doesn,t take a great deal of research to locate your address if someone has your check or phone number.
motion detectors, auto dial cell phone alarms , keeping a dog, maintaining friendly relations with neighbors etc. hiring a house sitter ,and recording video cameras seem to be expensive and unnecessary expense until you realize the cost of replacing what they might be protecting
