Lock up your bikes


There has been a warning recently to ensure that you lock up your bikes in garages or sheds after a plight of thefts across the UK from different gangs.

The consensus is that lots of people might have got new bikes over the Christmas period and thieves are looking at ways to get them and sell them on for a quick bit of money.

At Bradford Garage Doors, we want to remind people that if you are storing bikes in a garage, it is important that your garage door provides the security needed to prevent from theft.

If your garage door is old, worn or broken, it will not provide adequate resistance to stop a thief from getting in. Furthermore, studies have shown that thieves always go for the easiest option, so if your garage looks the most run-down on the street, it is likely they will target yours before anyone else.

There are a few things you can do, such as getting a repair, or if your garage door is ok, perhaps adding another lock or bolt which will help deter thieves from getting in to your garage. The harder you make it, the more time they will need to get in, and then they will probably decide it is not worth the risk.

You can also add additional security through motion censored lights which help to light up the front of the garage which again will help to deter people trying to get in to your garage illegally.

If you are worried about theft or believe your garage door is not offering the level of security to the items inside that it should, speak to one of our team. We offer a comprehensive garage door repair service, and if your garage door cannot be repaired, can provide a quick solution whilst we help you order a brand-new door.
