    Hello,

    How secure is the back door of a Luton box van with a tail lift? The one I have rented has an isolation switch in the cab for the tail lift.

    From what I can see it would be easier gaining access through the side of the van!

    Just need some assurance,

    Luton vans are fairly secure woody. More secure than the 7.5tonne curtainsiders I have been driving for work recently. Even the back doors on them didn't have any locking mechanism. Although to be fair , if someone wanted to get into it, a Stanley knife would have been the weapon of choice.

    It's as secure as any vehicle, if they want to get in they will.

    How will they get in - through the sides?

    If the tail lift is up and isolated in the cabin it looks as if it would be a hard and long job breaking into the cargo compartment.

    Thanks Chippie,

    That's fine. You need an ignition key and code to activate this tail-lift.

    I am being challenged about the vulnerability of the tail lift being an easy point of entry. People are concerned theives will break in to see if anything is inside even though it is empty.

    I keep on looking at it and wondering how you can get in that way without an angle grinder.

    Everyone I have spoken to has said that going through the sides would be the easiest way.

    Not seen that before!
    "I am being challenged about the vulnerability of the tail lift being an easy point of entry."
    Who by?
    "People are concerned theives will break in to see if anything is inside even though it is empty."
    Which people?
    WTF are you keeping in this van that you're so worried about?

    Nothing. The van is loaded with furniture driven 5 miles and unloaded. The people I am doing the job for who have rented the van are worried that people will break in when it is parked up at night just to see if there is anything inside that is worth nicking.

    I just can't seem to pacify them.

    Anyway enough said about this topic

    Next time tell them to pay the little bit extra to protect their excess and then it doesn't matter :)

    Can't they park it up against a wall or something?
