Despite the fact that Sharon and Myself took some time off to go to Norway, for the rest of the gang it was very much “work as normal” with a number of standard jobs booked from broken and lost keys to failed locks on both properties and vehicles. Unfortunately, one thing that is a constant but always seems to rear its ugly head far more frequent at this time of year are the criminal acts of vandalism and illegal entry.
Between the period of 1st November and over the holiday period we attended a relatively large number of incidents across our area from St Austell and Bodmin down to Sennen and Lands End. We even had a couple of jobs in the Plymouth areas. These jobs ranged from burglary repairs such as split doors and frame repairs, to actual replacements in the case of one incident in Bodmin where illegal entry at 03.20 hrs led to our early am attendance. The door and the frame were in such bad condition that nothing other than complete replacement would have worked.
The majority of the incidents required at minimum some board-up work and removal of broken glass whether it be from doors or windows. Not all the work was for domestic homes, we saw a slight increase this year of business being targeted, mainly shops but we did have one factory owner in need of help.
Should your property be targeted by criminals no matter what time of day or night, give us a call and we will attend to ensure that the property is secured straightaway and depending on the requirements undertake full repairs or replacements that will conform to your insurance policy requirements.
We are experts in this sort of work and in some cases may even be able to assist in the dealings with your insurers to take out the confusion as to what they do or don’t require.
