Our Tips To Keep Your Home Safe Over The Holidays

Latest news

Before you head off on holiday, read our tips to keep your home safe and reduce your risk of burglary.

  • Touch base with your insurance broker to make sure you’re adequately covered. Take photos of your valuables and keep a record of the details in a handy place. This helps recover items in the event they’re stolen and you need to make an insurance claim.
  • Only tell trusted family and friends your holiday plans and don’t advertise your absence on social media.
  • Make your property less of a target by ensuring all windows, doors, cars and gates are locked. Draw curtains and turn on the alarm if you have one.
  • Lock up and put away anything that might give intruders access to your house e.g. tools, gardening equipment, ladders.
  • Don’t leave valuable items lying around outside such as bikes, tools and children’s toys.
  • Get someone to collect your mail or have the post office collect it.
