Don't say that! They might be reading...

What you meant was, of course, "she's hard as nails and eats baddies for breakfast"

Our Daisy above, does seem to encourage people to wait to be invited in to Home or the warehouse.

Where in fact she’s soft as shit and gets scared of the hoover.

Bless our dogs, in December I was working late at our unit when i heard a noisy diesel outside, it was an old luton transit with two young guys loading my pallets into the back of it, at my age I didn't fancy getting a kicking so I put the dog on his lead and went out, their faces were a picture and they put them back and left with a very sorry sir, a 9 stone pissed off Doug de Bordeaux works every time Smile

Many years ago I had a little "unit" in Birmingham.

Went in one afternoon and found that it had been broken into the night before.

After a good look around my foh speakers and amp racks etc were still there, but six Behringer B300 powered dj monitors had been stolen. Nothing else.

Those monitors were actually all broken and beyond economic repair with dead amplifier modules and drivers. I was wondering what to do with them.

Would have been great to be a "fly on the wall" when they got their spoils home.

Hahaha.

The chances are the perp's followed you home from a gig, it happened to a mate of mine a long time back, and I also know of someone that was followed half way home then attacked at a set of lights on a quite road and his van taken along with everything in it.
always keep an eye on who's about when you moving kit.
 
Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!

"asset tracking devices don't cost much these days. easily hidden in the back of an amp rack."

Yes - definitely the way to go, although the mess a break in can leave is soul destroying.

I read somewhere that the burglary clear up rate in the UK is down to around 5%. No wonder so many try to earn a living that way!

asset tracking devices don't cost much these days. easily hidden in the back of an amp rack.

police caught some lads wheeling my mate's motorbike down the road. they claimed they had 'found it' on the street so they let them go. they came back a couple of days later and just stole it again.

I’d be questioning my circle as you say no other units were done so they knew what they were coming for.. Thieves have very simple minds usually a loud alarm and some bright lights clear them off (a lot more than cameras will anyway). Also units where the owner lives on the site are a bit more ideal. Had similar tried here and it can be stressful so all the best mate!

Unfortunately the only way for now is to make yourself a harder target than the next person. Thieves are by definition lazy- if they were happy to work hard they wouldn’t need to steal ( in the main at least), so will always chose the easiest victim. 

At least, as far as my garage is concerned they will need a couple of hours with a plasma cutter ( wall is too thick for a full size angle grinder), by which time the police WILL be there, even if i have to get them to chase me from the cop shop
you right about the weapons , most of our stuff don't have wheels or handles , it's a bad idea for us when setting up but ,you just can't wheel them down the street .
